gonna cut it down to just past the logo and cap it off, just to try some different things on the stock maxi. once i get my project build ill be getting a proper pipe, i just want to see what i can do. if the price is right might take 2 to experiment with.

preferably if you have the main head tube as well, complete with or without baffle. if it can be mounted and not leak at the head, its all good.

ive heard of it done in the past, either cut the pipe and baffle screw down and shorten it, or cut and cap with some stuffing. i was wanting to try a combo or two.

the bike i have used to belong to my grandpa and he had said something a long time ago about "the kids in town would cut up the pipes on them. seemed to make them faster"

i just think it'll give better back pressure and maybe some better low-mid. also i found something on the MA wiki about it, so i guess its been done, i just like experimenting. and the stock puch pipes seem a dime a dozen.

Hey Greg, I don't know if you know this but Scooter is the MAN when it comes to home-made tuned pipes. He knows a couple of things ...

thats why i was posting it here, the more i learn, the better lol i'm accepting any and all input

trying for something basic and easy to start. this one is for the maxi, not the project. basically i'm limited to "don't wreck it or put anything else on it" but i got a middle ground of a modified stock pipe.

i'm still looking for a motor for my project. among other things. also, front axle, entire rear wheel, modded bars, the longer seat and a different carb. i have a 12mm bing to rebuild, but its siezed and missing parts and may just end up being a spare body. hopefully next weekend i'll have my workspace setup in my garage, gotta move around some boxes and things and build a bench.

Definitely several at the shop. I don't think any one who has a Puch engine actually uses the stock exhaust. I've got two I'm pretty sure. Your welcome to use either one.

also, sorry if i came off negative, i didnt mean any offense. i heard you guys talking about the scooter having this amazing ability to make perfect pipes just by looking at a bike.
