1500 exhaust extention

Post by josua60 » Mon Apr 29, 2013 7:53 am

Recently had my 1988 wing "triked" by CSC. Excellent!!! Question is, can I take the exhaust tip off, put a short piece of stainless tubing on the muffler and reattach the exhaust tip? I want to get the tips back past the body of the trike. I don't want to change the sound. Quiet is a good thing. Is there a baffle or something attached to the tips? Thanks

Truthfully the only one who could answer is one who did that or Dr.Bose.
The "Tip" is a acoustical add on and changing it's physical location might also change it's resonance effect.
