Well, the bike has 150 miles on it, and since there are no aftermarket exhausts on the market, I decided to do the Baffle mod. Bad Idea :( I drilled out the baffle with a hole saw and the junk metal fell into the exhaust, well, I then tried drilling out the catalyst and that also got fudged up.

So, what do you do when your fucked? Improvise. I cut that shit into 3 pieces, removed all of the baffles/catalst/plates and then went looking for some exhaust pipes. I couldn't find any SS pipe in 1 1/2" O.D. so I turned to the next best thing, copper piping. It wasn't that expensive actually and it's the only pipe I could find with my required 1 1/2" O.D. with out special ordering it online. Thus the name "Coppertone".

Got some pics and some video! :cool:

Enjoy! :D

Don't bring her up to high in the rpms cause when you let go of that throttle it will pop like crazy cause it's leaning out bad!!! Wow that's gotta suck when everything goes wrong!!! Been there too!

It's actually not bad. I don't get any sort popping at the higher RPMs, although I'm not redlining it either ;) Overall, it has a nice grumble at lower RPMs and I noticed while cruising at 50-60, the exhaust is really quiet.

I will get it tuned when that option is avaliable, and hopefully a ram air kit will be avaliable soon.

Thanks! I did it all in my garage... the wife wasn't too happy since I spent so much time on the project. Well, that and she didn't understand why I was doing it to a brand new motorcycle :D

Thats great work Predator! My wife asked me the same thing. She was like didn't you buy that thing 3 days ago?:eek: I just drilled the baffles out to get a little more noise until Cobra comes out with their swept pipes. I sent an email to them and their sales people said by end of June. Its loud enough now I can live with it until then.

It looks like your mod has changed the exhaust system to a true dual, But now with no baffling at all you have no back pressure for low to mid range performance. You also risk burning a valve. Also you may not beable to tune the bike with any performance.

Well, I had the tune up done and the mechanic didn't say anything about burning up my valves. He did have to change an exhaust gasket on the front cylinder.

I'm not really feeling any power loss though, it sounds mean as hell and still quieter then some of the Harley's around here :cool:

In the next 4 to 6 weeks we will be offering true dual baffled slip-on's for the Fury as well as a number of styles of complete exhaust systems. The slip-on baffle as well as all our baffles is not to quite the pipes, but create just the right amount of back pressure for performance and horse-power. All the pipes will be sold only through LOW and MEAN or lowandmean.com
