Cutting the exhaust
Has anyone just chopped the OEM exhaust? I was think of just cutting off the back part where te baffles and stuff are. I figured it would give it that short shot look. I'm just not sure if it will harm the bike in anyway.

RE: Cutting the exhaust
DO IT DO IT DO IT!

yeah either straight cut the mufflers or maybe cut them diagonally and pull out all the baffles. Also maybe mask off the outside and paint the insides black just with some hi temp grill paint.

If you have the AIS system still installed on your ride you'll probly get a popping sound when you decelerate while in gear. Personally I think its very annoying lol

Also just with this exhaust mod I'm pretty sure you dont need to mess with your carbs or efi.

Oh yeah... I didn't chop mine per say... just removed the mufflers completely and reused the head pipes to make drag style pipes

RE: Cutting the exhaust
I pulled out that last stage baffle and it looks stock but sounds really pretty good just like that. throaty, yet mello when i ease off. There are vids on youtube that show how to do that straight or angle cut off and some on how it sounds after. look them up. good luck!

as you can see: its a 2007 cherry red v star 650 stock pipes...modified

Re: Cutting the exhaust
You could drill it a out with hole saw. Search YouTube you will find a couple of instruction video on how to do it. It takes 2 minutes and you don't need to unbolt anything. It will give you a good sound while accelerating and a non obtrusive rumble while cruising & @ idle

Cutting the exhaust
I took a look at the exhaust last night. I saw there was a clamp that holds the last part of the exhaust on. I think I'm gonna just try and get them loose and see how it sounds.

Cutting the exhaust
Old people can hate me all they want. Maybe it will help them not try and run me over! I have to be more concerned with the wife. It may mean pushing my bike down the street in the mornings before starting it.

RE: Cutting the exhaust
Haha! I do that. Also I when I'm riding home ill shut it down and coast into the driveway when I'm a few houses down. I like my loud exhaust but I try to keep it quiet when I'm in my neighborhood.

RE: Cutting the exhaust
ha ha Mr RCOM, it's o.k to piss off the rest of the world, but don't upset the neighbors, lol.
years ago I lived in a share house: 2 of the blokes didn't get on so "Blacky" would push his bike (Kawasaki Z900) out of the garage, back it up to 'Reno's' window and fire it up give it a few revs and take off.

RE: Cutting the exhaust
Yup! That's right and its only cause I live next to them.

A guy moved in kitty corner from my house and got this nice Harley... he saw me working on my star to show it off and to laugh at my import. He'd ALWAYS be reving up and flying up and down our street and the neighbors on both sides of me mentioned how annoying it was that he did it... I don't wanna be the annoying guy I guess.

Not to long later he crashed really bad... bikes gone and he's in a wheelchair. Its a shame

RE: Cutting the exhaust
That's the problem with the fuel injection... my carburated bike doesn't have em.

You'd either that to encorporate the section with the sensor or get a nut that fits the threaded portion of the sensor and either weld or hi temp epoxy it to the pipe

Cutting the exhaust
You will cut my exhaust with a sword? I'd like to see that. I tried to just take the bolts off that hold the hole back part of the exhaust on but they are rusted and I'm limited on tools so I have to find a drill
