Still getting rid of parts on craigslist, I saw a guy looking for a stock muffler for a 660.
I emailed saying I had a supertrapp I would let go cheap.
He said he had an FMF titanium and would I be interested in trade + cash. I said sure, grabbed a $20 even though I want this to be a straight across deal, and met up with him local venue.
He explains that every time he goes out, he gets stopped with the DB meter on the sand (we always do as well, but we test ok) no matter how much packing his friend puts in the muffler…
I show him the supertrapp and he pulls the FMF out with $40.00 ! I lol to the bank
The old POS
The winning new one
And I lol’d more when I looked down the bore and saw this – Two pieces of expanded mesh as the “spark arrestor” and the “packing” was steel wool from end to end… WTF
At some point a while back my ankle started hurting like a mofo, but being a guy I just said fawk it.
It’ll grow back… till I stepped off a curb and felt shooting pain up my spine.
Thought “sh1t I should prob listen to the wife and get this *ish checked out”
They found a couple of bone fragments that look like they may be the cause…
In fact that may be why…
Moving on… the stock 32hp 660 engine on these short wheelbase 660’s is already a problem.
That would prove even more problematic when you add a 124hp 600cc 4 cyl into the mix
So I decided on and built a 8” swingarm from scratch
Mocking it up just to see if I like the length before I built a jig for the arm
Gotta have a chain guide so I don’t kick that sucker off and wrap it around a body part
