Cap for removed exhaust...
« on: February 26, 2020, 07:59:13 PM »
Hi,

In looking to remove the left side muffler. Anyone has done this?

Any ideas what and/or where I can use as a “cap” to block the exit from the cat?

I have tried copper fitting caps, but the diameter is well off. I gather the graphite gasket is 38mm, but i can only get 40mm or 32 mm....

Any suggestions?

Also, has anyone tried any of the mufflers or exhausts from Aliexpress???

Cheers

It's easy enough to make a 'cap' as I doubt you will find one.

The only thing that comes close is an exhaust 'rain cap' which would be easy enough to seal?   https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/262581633178?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=262581633178&targetid=882158301572&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9045481&poi=&campaignid=9446200282&mkgroupid=96107825455&rlsatarget=aud-629407027345:pla-882158301572&abcId=1139366&merchantid=101734082&gclid=CjwKCAiA7t3yBRADEiwA4GFlIz5W9xONy_0QtEl18a2moFN6AlJt7ZRYHBcNszZJGFkVFNksIuPrtBoC2ycQAvD_BwE

Or
Just fabricate one from a piece of aluminium and you could hold it in place with a jubilee clip or pop rivets.

Have to ask though - what is the reason for this?

Well, several reasons:

1 access/service to the chain
2 weight
3 sound (i would replace the right muffler).
4 want to try it.
5 got bumped by some AH on the right side and the connecting pipe buckled somewhat (not serious). But to repair it is about the same as getting a link pipe and separate muffler...

Ideally I would of gone for a 2 in 1... but thats out of my budget. Not to mention that I would have to import it and that would be a MPINA!!!

One of the link pipes on aliexpress shows a “cap”, kind of a stainless steel tube end cap

mmm  :084:

Well like I say it would be very easy to fabricate one with a small aluminium sheet.
Whatever you do will very likely be a temporary measure because I doubt you will like the way the bike will run.
The caps I think you are referring to on Ali Express are hollow - so you again would need to fabricate an 'end cap' to cover it?

The attached photo is of something that I have seen used previously but am uncertain of where to get them in your location.

I have had a few bits from Ali Express previously and found them good value.

Would be very interested to see how you got on.

If you were in the UK I have a few bits of old exhaust that you could have had to experiment with.  :003:

If you look in RoryD's photo album he fabricated a blanking cap and posted about it in one of the exhaust threads on here...it'll probably turn up on a search using his name. HTH
