The fact it was in the movie would have been something that I sure mentioned in the ad. But some people just don't think such ways.

Well today was the day..It runs and drives on gas.
Still some tidying up and tuning to do..no choke cable and it
seems to run a little lousy till it warms up some. Needs a ring job
over the winter but I expected that from test running the engine
before the install. Next planned mod is to build up a custom exhaust
using a Honda street bike muffler, the tiny pipe on the stock G16
muffler can not possibly be helping performance any LOL!
Sorry for the lack of pics..ws too busy riding around to take any
to post but tomorrow I should get a few for you guys out there
who like them.

So as promised..this is the panhard bar I cut down and reworked into a torque strut.

This is a shot of it installed.

This is the brake cable drop bracket that made the too short cables able to be used.

and finally a pretty lousy pic of the throttle box/cable assembly that I made up..

Definitely a rebuild is in order over the winter..if I don't find a bigger engine first LOL.
It runs really well but smokes enough to be annoying to the little lady, and we can NOT have that.

Decided I will be rebuilding the stock 301cc Yamaha over the winter...
Since I don't have the parts for that yet I was left with nothing to do on it
recently when I had time so I figured the custom exhaust time had come.

A little pipe bending , make a flange that matches the head (that was fun. LOL)
weld onto a stock Honda street bike muffler that was gathering dust in the corner.
A shot looking down from under the seat..

and one from the left rear wheelwell that shows the rear support clamped to the
engine cradle and bolted to the stock muffler rear mount.

A bit louder than stock but not too obnoxious, it does get pretty close to the secondary
clutch, maybe 1" air gap...hoping that doesn't cause issues later on.

Yep, the exhaust looks good. I like the use of motorcycle mufflers. They idle pretty quiet but can really talk to you when cruising.

I used a stock Harley muffler on my Kawasaki V-twin build and love the sound on the trails and when running down the road.

That's a good description of the sound quality smokin
The idle is quite tame but the flat out does have more
Sound to it than the stock silent muffler.
It took two tries to get the bends on the pipe the way
I wanted...the cheapo harbor freight pipe bender
I have gets the job done but is not very precise.
More like guess work and trial fitting.
That and finishing with the angle grinder,files
and aluminum colored heat paint.

Yep ez-ha. I have the Harbor Freight bender too. It works well for things such as a brush guard or bumper but when it comes to precision, it's hard to get bends lined up the way you want and you it's some trial and error when it comes too getting the bend right where you want it.

I do use one myself but converted it for use on my wood splitter. It's a bit easier to make the bends and quicker, since I can hold the pipe with one hand and use the other for the hydraulics. No more pumping and releasing the jack that comes on them.
