since this bike is almost all stock but for the engine and exhaust I decided to get one of those clone stock exhausts off ebay since im going for that look
I had no problem with the exhaust I had, but it has no heat shield and is getting all nasty from my shoes melting on it
and the chorme is chipping a little where the hanger is
Plus it doesnt go with the look



although it said it would fit a 140cc engine I figured it wouldnt, I was correct
as the engine is longer then the stock, not sure on a 125 but the hanger was off by an inch

so I just moved it back as far as I could while still keeping the clean hanger look
I could of went further back but it would of been hanging over the original pad it was mounted on

So I took out my plug because I was going to sand blast it, and rejet for the new exhaust
I saw I was super rich I was running a 110 main
When I had jetted it I checked the plug once, and never checked again
but it ran fine like this

so I went do to a 97 I think cant remember I just soldered and drilled the jet with one of my drill bits



Runs eactly the same speeds as the other pipe
and I think it accelerates better I used to pop up the front all the time
the quick ride I took it on was more controllable not sure if it was the exhaust or not

Super silent all I hear is the intake
I like it, wont attract any attention

Plus I think it goes way better to the vintage look the bike already has

well got the bike back out from storage, got it registered so its street legal again

decided to put back the aftermarket pipe it had, like the sound it always made with the silencer in and looks better




also wanted to get the bike ready for bigger rides, since the internal tank is only good for around 35 miles, and my spare tank good for 15 miles I wanted to be able to use a roto pax fuel tank I have laying around

sure I could carry it in a backpack, but 1 gallon of fuel does get heavy, and why not let the bike carry the weight since I did put on a rear rack a while ago. The only thing is the rack was very short, so pretty useless carrying anything

aesthetically the fuel tank looks a little too big, but since it sits flat I could also strap a bag over it and use it as a base for gear. so that is a nice feature

if they had made a 1/2 gallon tank then I think it would fit the size of the bike better
I just really cant find anything small enough to either mount good
or fill from a gas pump good

I did use to carry the small msr fuel bottles in a bag that ended up being really heavy, but its impossible to fill those at a gas station without spilling most of the fuel out
and I did try old military metal canteens but I was afraid they would leak and still hard to fill without spilling all over the bike

The roto pax has built in nozzle for spill free use and tucks away inside and large enough to fill from gas stations and not have fuel spill all over




as you can see because of how large the tank is, I was limited on figuring out how to mount it trying not to make anything too crazy and still keeping it simple, so I had to make my rack a touch longer so the tabs I welded will be supported, it was the best I can figure out how to do it

plus when not carrying the tank doesnt look to bad, once I decide how im going to finish the metal
I may just to primer over the new stuff, keep as much chrome as I can

or use spray paint chrome to hide the new stuff

even though I do have chrome powdercoat I could use, its a 2 step process and its such a big piece to do for such a little area I need to cover
