Maybe I could have, but now I have a headache just trying to read your post!!! Can you attached the secret decoder to make sense of the gibberish you call English? There have been noobs from other counties post clearer explanations than that.

Kinda vague their scotty.... what exhaust mod did you do and on what bike? Assuming the ACE or the VLX? You installed Cobra drag pipes? you installed something homebrew? You don't like the sound? It doesn't run right? Both A and B?

Throw us a bone

My bad im at work . My ace 750 i tried drilling holes in the exhaust and punching out the baffles .it runs bad and sounds shitty,so i am looking into just buying a new system and the cobra drag pipe has 2 inch pipes and there is a 2 1/4 inch pipe system . What is the differance with the syatems other than size

Interesting. I originally drilled and punched my baffles and it sounded much better than stock.... granted not as good as my HardKrome shorties. Did you drill 5/8 holes and then poke though the baffles with some pointy rebar or did you remove the baffles completely? What are the symptoms of it "running bad" Backfiring, bogging? Backfiring is understandable as the bike runs lean from the factory and opening the exhaust just makes it worse and requires adjusting the A/F mix screws out further to compensate.

Took an extension beat it in to break baffles out drilled 5/8 holes 6 of them in the plate.back fires yes .When riding at speeds over 60 the motor sounds as if its redlining in neutral make sense .at idle it siunds like a moped now.and im pretty talented at messing stuff up so i think i should just spend the money and get a new exhaust system.so is the any differance between a 2 in system and a 21/4 inch system

If y


That's what she tells you huh? ;)

If you have stock ACE exhaust you can cut the big can off, weld/screw on exhaust tips and wrap the exhaust. If you have stock intake I have done this and did not have to rejet, minor a/f adjustment was fine. Exhaust sounds great and in my opinion looks great.
