PostSubject: Drain pipe tail pipes   Thu Aug 16, 2012 11:50 pm

Hi All,

With spare time on my hands, thought I'd finally try my hand at the muffler tailpipe extensions. Also am new to uploading pics to the forum so bear with me. Threw in a couple extra pics just for looks (now that I'm an expert uploader thanks to JeffR).

I cut the slants by freehand after marking a couple dots just for reference. Did not cut the threaded portion off. As a matter of fact, I even tried putting the big nuts on the threads and then just tightening the 4 screws down on the plate. That 'did' work to tighten it all down but without a solid screw plate (it's open in the middle), it let the 2 pipes become unparallel by squeezing them together in the center of the plate.

Anway, I wound up using a couple stainless self-tapping screws to hold them on and all seems well so far.

Nice Job!!

I just put the "flanged end" over my muffler pipes and re-attached the cover over them and it has held them tightly in place w/o screws (although you can move the up and down slightly) if you use a lot of pressure. They never move in many miles of normal highway riding on all types of roads. They DO make a nice look to the bike! billc.

DickO,

They look great! I've had mine on now for over 5 years and have never had a problem. I did drill and tap two #4 holes in each piece far enough back (towards the canister) to secure them.

Exactly which plumbing parts are these ? I quite like the appearance but I'm not sure what to look for in the hardware dept!!

Thanks for the kind words folks,

"bikerboy", I threw all the wrappings away but believe they are simple inch and a quarter diameter by six inch chrome under-counter sink drain tails that would normally attach to the sink drain. Just cut and fit as best suits your taste. I've heard that some folks have cut off the threaded portion to eliminate a lot of the larger flared out area.

"billc's" method of holding them on by simply tightening the chrome screw plate down on the flanged pipe ends sounds interesting too. Wish I had tried that; might still try it. It just didn't work with the big nuts on it so I took the route that "masscoot" did. Hope mine lasts as long as his has.

And yes, "SCTLVR", that is a potential slice-and-dice area but I did take a smooth big file and worked the slant edge down flat plus rounded the edges best as possible.

All in all, I'm very satisfied.

DaveR did this several years ago. He had several posts, as well as photos in his album, as I remember.
