Well, it was cool and gloomy today and I got bored...so what the hell...I pull the Muzzy can off my bike and headed to the shop with it...I was not real happy with the overall lenght of it, and my taillight was showing signs of getting too warm...so it was time for the can to meet up with the chopsaw...








I'll post some daytime pics of it tomorrow...and my CA taillight should be here monday, so I can ditch the rear blinkers and the ugly black plastic...

I haven't ridden it yet, was too late by the time I got it all back together...and I wouldn't recomend this to someone who is short tempered...the endcaps are a PITA to get back on...the oval body tries to take on a round shape without the ends on...

ill need better pics to tell... especially w/o the black plastics around it.

but... one of the reasons i bought the muzzy slip on cause i loved the length of it compared to so many others. it was shorter than the tail and didnt stick out past it, but wasnt to short.

def post better pics tho!

My thoughts exactly. But maybe it was getting hot from the radiant heat from the can, and this way it probably won't get as hot. I don't know... But I love the way it looks! Let us know if it starts melting anything.

x3.

but then again, maybe it's like the other guy said... maybe it's ambient heat. I don't know. It'd be cool to get the canister ceramic coated.

The way the cans are put together, the majority of the heat is built up in the entrance of the can...this is due to a steel plate cap and asbestos covered mesh trap that forces the exhaust through the baffle tube...you can see where the outside of the can at the rear has tried to turn yellow from the heat. This should keep some of the radiant heat from the taillight, and the exhaust itself flows straight out, not up...

Pics coming soon...the sun isn't up good yet...

He who has the most toys still dies, he just has more fun before doing so...lol

Note: My CA Green taillight is installed now, and the factory black plastic is not on the bike anymore. My ex has the camera, but I'll try to post pics of it ASAP, all I have right now is my shitty camera phone...
