stock pipe circumferance

What is the circumference of the stock exhaust pipe of a 92 1500 SE just before it bends down toward the ground?

Are you asking about the bend at the tailpipe out the end of the muffler? Your question isn't real clear.

That helps. If you don't have that muffler??? Then someone needs to measure theirs for you. I don't have one of those to measure it with a caliper or a micrometer.

In reply to your pm on what the diameter of the circled tailpipe is.....I don't know as I don't have one to measure.
In your pm your clarification as to the the reason you asked the measurement was to put copper mesh in the pipe to keep mice out.

Put copper mesh or aluminum mesh screen over the tail pipe and secure it with zip ties until you are ready to ride again in the spring. Here is how I do the same over the gl1800 air intake horns to keep critters out of the airfilter. You can do the same on the tailpipe (without tape)

I gotter done. I placed copper mesh around the end of the pipe & tightened it with zip ties.

I also, filled the tank, put stabil in the gas & Seafoam Engine Treatment in the crankcase. I also drained the air, & put the bike on two 3/4" X 8" X 8" pieces of plywood. Then I took the battery out.

One problem tho:
When the 1500 sits for a few days, it starts right up again no problem, but then when I squeeze the clutch lever & put it in 1st, it goes in good, but doesn't release the clutch slowly & I have to stall it to get it back into neutral. It does this for a few times & then with each time, the clutch seems to release better after each time. It never was that way before. Any ideas?

Thanx

That clutch issue sounds like a air bubble in the clutch line, each time you squeeze the clutch it “pumps”it up some more until it is where it should be.

So how EXACTLY (step by step) do I get rid of that air bubble? Take the clutch fluid reservoir cap off & start pumping until it returns to normal? Or how?

No, it just makes it much easier. They can be bought from Harbor Freight for $25.00 .
