I tried to raise and extend the pipe. Did not work. Too little back pressure. The flexible exhaust pipe is leaky. Took a picture before putting it back to stock.
So with the pipe back. Added universal ATV shock covers and used the brackets for the pipe to add a can for tools since the holes were drilled in the fender for it. Even with a simple bike I like to carry some tools for whatever may happen.
The cheap and easy road isn't so easy, but it is coming along.
Still, fun as hell to ride.
