so firstly I drilled out the pop rivets
that hold the outer cover on



then with the outer cover removed I then use a dremel to cut the end spout
off the inner baffle pipe


now that I have removed this you can see another restricting baffle
that goes from the end spout to in inner baffle pipe



again the drill and dremel comes to the rescue to remove this.

so now this is all the parts you are left with now that the can has been fully gutted



the baffle inner pipe(which weighs a ton) can now be thrown in the bin...look at all that restriction



and this is what the can looks like with all that rubbish taken out(note the smaller inner pipe where the cat used to be)



for lagging I seen this stuff
that apparently a lot of the bike makers use now seeing its so good.

a small net holds it all in place then the heat of the exhaust melts the net allowing
it to expand and fill every inch of the can with a real nice tight fit.

so now I use 2.5" perforated tube for the internal of the exhaust,
the end cap is 2.5" oval so I oval the end of the tube using a vice
and this makes it a perfect fit.with the cat removed the house for
the cat is a nice tight fit for the perforated tube to slide into.
a couple of spot welds in the end cap and the perforated tube isnt
moving anywhere.
this is how it looks



now its just a case of wrapping the tube in the new lagging
which I got next day delivery Smile



then pop rivet it all back together.
so now when you look in the end pipe you see this



sorted, now you have some phantom brand cans lol!


oh and here is a video of the new cans in action.......(bike was pre warmed up before I took this)

cheers, go down to mc callen an tell him to fire mine up to let you hear it......bring ear plugs lmao

can make yours really loud without removing the cat,baffle or cans from the bike..
all you need is a dremel and drill.

these are with the can already took apart but for this imagine they are still together.

step one, drill loads of holes around the inner spout like so

step two, wiggle the drill side to side and it breaks the holes into larger holes like so.

step three, a good set of tin snips or a hacksaw blade will cut the rest of the spout out
and using a pair of plyers pull the spout out like so


post image wordpress

step four, now use the dremel with the sanding wheels to polish off all the excess metal
giving a smooth finish like so

and from the front they look like this

the bike will now have that super loud duke noise but still has the cats and main baffle fitted.
cost of this mode........free if you already have a drill and dremel Smile
