G1 muffler BBQ; Hot Pics!
2 Attachment(s)
After reading many posts on a muffler BBQ I decided to cook the mufflers on my 1989 EZGO and my 1981 G1. First was the EZGO, not much happened; a little smoke, but pretty uneventfull.

Next was the G1;got the fire cooking pretty good and placed the muffler in a raised position resting on two rocks. This allows the fire to burn hotter and the tail pipe to be on the bottom and facing down.

I was amazed, the tail pipe threw a torch like flame for almost 45 minutes, you can see it in the picture. After the tail pipe torch went out I turned the muffler over and cooked the other side, not much more happened.

After it cooled I gentley banged it on the concrete floor as I continued to pour burnt chunks out.

The neat thing is I had earlier asked about a puller for the clutch because I did have to continuously pull the choke when I started the motor, even after it was warm. Now it runs and starts great!! There was way too much restriction causing too much back pressure. It was well worth the effort.

Nice pics Starspa, nothing any better than a muffler bbq, I know after I burned both my G1's out they ran so much better.

Will this work on any mufflers or just the 2 stroke ones?

Because of the clean fuel a four stroke motor is not going to be adversely effected by the stop and go use that golf carts are subjected to.

A two stroke has alot of unburned oil that enters the muffler; due to the stop and go life of the motor and the reduction in pipe size that creates the back pressure, the muffler does not gain the heat needed to burn off the residue oil.

When I cooked my G1 muffler almost all of the smoke and all of the flames shot out of the tail pipe end, this is where the residue buildup is.

I did not think of weighing the muffler prior to cooking it until it was already on the fire. We could find out the stock muffler clean weight and simply weigh the removed muffler to determine the need to cook.

Re: G1 muffler BBQ; Hot Pics!
i believe i have the same problem cause i cut the end of the muffler off and it is just packed. the cart would barley move before and now with out the exhust on it and w choking it it seems to run fine. My question is do i weld the cap back on and then cook it or leave it off and smack it while it is in the fire to let the carbon build up fall out?
Also i dont know much about this cart, but i believe its an early eightys yamaha, my second question is when i try to start the cart is moves while it is trying to start, is this right? THANKS
