Today I have removed my exhaust can, cut it open and discovered 3 chambers inside with lots of pipes taking the flow of gas in and out of each chamber at least twice . So I removed the last 2 chambers, kept the first for noise reduction. There was a short baffle in chamber 1, I drilled a few of the holes out from 6mm to 10mm. The pealed the can shut and welded it up.
I'm a welder and found this pretty easy, it took a good couple of hours to do so, for most its probably cheaper to buy a new can, but its V difficuilt to find, i know. Cant find one anywhere??? So thats why I spent a couple of hours doing it this way.
I also considered installing a K&N air filter to get more air in to help balance out the rich mixture. Although after speaking to a mechanic he recommended not to do so because of breather pipes x 2. He suggested keep the original air box and to cut holes out of it to help increase air intake. Standard intake holes are usually too small (another way of slowing bikes down). So i have done as he suggested. But make sure you guys cut your holes out before the foam insert, do not bypass the filter.
I'm going to refit the can and air box on my return from work. I will keep you guys updated on performance changes. But I'm sure this will make a great difference!
