I gotta get in on this calendar deal....



I found I needed to turn my intermediate pipe inward a bit to make it line up properly. The "U" shaped piece I fabricated allows the "S" pipe to align both of it's springs and corrects the position of the exhaust outlet so as to avoid the turn signal...

Creep, Your advice to attach the springs and then let it basically align itself was what helped most in my install. Now I am seeing ChrisC's photos... Looks like like these bikes all require some tweaking with this exhaust.

Everyone, is this common with Akra, Big Gun, etc. to anyone's knowledge?

I think it may be a situation where every bike is different and it is up to the end user to detrmine best fit, thats why I recommended installing the exhaust with the springs and see where everything lines up the best, then adjust the mounts to suit.

I don't know if there are any actual power gains to be had by getting rid of the pre-muffler... might be a bit lighter.

If you read the very first post, Supertrapp lists the fitment as pre-'99, so... anything after that is a "make it fit" kinda deal.
So far, no one has had any major problems, with ChrisC having done more to get a good fit on his bike than anyone else I am aware of. (good idea Chris )

My reason for using a Supertrapp is near unlimited tuneability, substantial weight reduction over stock, a built-in and very effective spark arrestor... and it can be made very quiet, should I chose.
I post what I know when I know it, and should someone choose a Supertrapp because of that post... that's nice, but be prepared to use your brain... just a little, to install it.

Here is that picture you asked for AdventurePipe. I apparently exagerated a bit on the diameter, it's the same size as the original hole.

If you want the original 371kb version, I can e-mail you that.

As to the calender... send it to who ever comes up with the most creative reason for needing it.

I need the calendar like I need a hole in my head...

More spurts of wizdom there creeper! A lil self sufficiency is a good thing; very parental of you to give the others a little shove outa the nest! I am always impressed when I read and see this person fabricated this piece or reconfigured that piece. I dont have a machine shop out back - actually I don't even have a garage or lil shop . But if I did, I probably couldn't do half the stuff all y'all are!

Baby steps to greatness...

Spurts is about right Meat.

Nothing special... just a drill, and the knowledge that an exhaust system doesn't last too long if it's in a bind.
Your just trying to sweet talk me into that CF airbox cover... ain't ya'? ...ya' bastidge you.

Creeper,

Thanks for the pic of the drilled hole. Perfect. If you every need discs, clamps or anything give me a holler.

BTW - I cut off the end of those clamp bolts that stick out like that.

OK, on the calendar, these Garage Girls are not exactly Playboy material. Let's say more like the ones that did not make the first cut, or second, or third. First to PM me gets the calendar. Thanks for everyone's help on this project. It'll be up on my web site in a few days.

I think ChrisC must work in the media; I have been misquoted by a pro!

Luckily, creeper took all the heat (or giz as it were)...

recieved my IDS2 in the mail! everything looks structurally fine but there are a few dings and scratches on it. they are actually marked with a yellow paint pen of some kind (hope that comes off). If the yellow comes off I doubt anyone will notice the dings/scratches - they are minor. i may have to leave neutral feedback for the eBay seller as he didnt mention this. i don't really care as it is minor but some people might blow a gasket.

but now I have to wait b/c the carb setup and airbox are stock... so its sits in the garage until I get some jets and mod the airbox.

IDS2 + Airbox mods

hey Meat,

What kind of airbox mods are you planning??? I got my bike in the shop getting ready for Dyno Time with FCR 41mx and IDS2 pipe going on.
I just pulled the Snorkle off. I do have the side airbox screen sitting here (from KTM sommer) but can't seem to bring myself to use it when I think of all the Hurricanes and other water hazards I encounter. Should I decide to skip it, I could be persuaded to give you a deal on it if you are interested.

Swamp,

Conventional widom here seems to point to Sommer's testing that claims the side screen with the snorkel intact is the best combo. But that's with the BST. With the FCR it might work well snorkel-free. I'm still usin' the BST, and I like drawing cooling air across the regulator, so it's screen only for me.... (and I'm too big a pussy to cross that much open water...)

Got mine at prts direct for $190 something

It's for a dr650 but sure looks the same as the pic of the ktm.
some one posted about small scratches, metal polish takes em right out and the super trapp looks like new again.

Best feature is spark arrestor... Being able to tune the pipe is nice too! I paid $240; how much for yours?
