Drilling for a better rumble

Postby tricycle » Wed May 02, 2012 6:04 pm



I have drilled two 9/16 holes in the rear of the muffler and it has a better rumble and the exhaust is louder; will this hurt the engine in any way? The bike is a 2002 GW 1800cc

Very unlikely it will affect the engine in any way. Those holes aren't likely affect the back pressure much if at all.
