Default Exhaust extension

Any reason not to do this? It helps a lot to keep the fumes out with the windshield is up.image.jpg

As long as it still runs good. Sometimes adding pipe that is too small a diameter might cause too much back pressure.

Other than it might getting hung up, I see no reason. Backpressure concerns come from to small a pipe or to long a pipe. In this case, if your using the same size pipe to extend as is on the muffler now, you should be OK. If that pipe slides into the muffler outlet, I would replace it with one that slides over the outlet.

My other pic didn't upload. It's just a 1/2" 45 coupling with a stick of 1/2" cut to just inside the body. I used the cutter to crimp it just enough that it should stay in place but if it gets hung up it will break away. Parts are less that 5.00 so if it breaks, what the heck. The actual exhaust on the muffler is within a fraction of 1/2 so I sanded it and used a deburring tool to shave the inside of the elbow just enough for a snug fit.

I would actually make it a size or 2 larger,since the pipe is quite long,just to aid breathing a bit.I know what you mean about the enclosure,My dad had a 2-stroker with an enclosure and it got bad in there!!

I'd prob add a hillbilly exhaust pipe support (coat hanger). LOL I'm sure it will run fine like that, since it's straight. If we were talking high performance engine....that'd be a different story. For this application it will prob be fine.
