Bumpin Banana Blaster Baffle Bonanza

DrGeorgeTompson (Alan) /

Anyone else buy this sick pipe yet?

If you did, you sure are a cool guy. But do you know how the hell you get the baffle apart?

I was able to put a socket in it to prevent jacking it all out of round while only marring the piss out of more than 95% of it by clamping on it with vice grips.

The southern end where it bolts to the master banana doesn't have any way to take it apart so I'm under the assumption that the smokey end is the only way to take it apart. Looks like it's pressed into the can. I can get it to twist a little bit probably 90 degrees or so but it won't move away from home.

I'll bet you it's got a barbed lip thing or some other alien technology that's holding it in there in a groove in the can and that's why this damn thing is so expensive.

Any take one of these apart yet? Mine has gotten super loud and I guess I'm afraid of breaking cause I'm a little bitch.

Nice pipe though.(edited)

Ok, so I did the thing where I wait 10 seconds for a response and then went ahead and broke it.

Here's why it was loud as shit. Pretty much cooked the packing into a hard shell on the inside. Maybe it got wet? IDK

Here's how the tube comes apart. Wow that makes sense! I'm just stupid. I have garbage welded it back to ok. Welder doesn't work well at low wire feed rate YOLO.

Repacked it with this lovely stuff which fit very well.

Sounds good now.

Ive been using stainless steel 3m scrubby pads for years they never burn up and I get them for free from the bar I work at.

Lets see some pics of the pipe mounted up! How does it perform? Does it clear the pedals/centerstand?

Re: Bumpin Banana Blaster Baffle Bonanza

Got a tach to show off what the pipe can hit?

Re: Bumpin Banana Blaster Baffle Bonanza

Never buy this ! Is it a good product ?

I put it on a DS-50. It was super easy to fit. The pedals did clear but i have since taken them off stand is out of the way. It sit's kinda low to the ground, but not quite as low as a big muff or the other pipes.

Im just running an un-ported flatreed with a 4-petal reed block and 21mm carb. It will hit 50.017 mph on not uphill. Not sure of the exact rpms of the band but, I believe I need a kit or to do some porting to really make use of this pipe.

So it happened again. The malossi packing lasted about a month. It got wet and then got loud.

I repacked with some ceramic material this time. It sounds nice but it's still itchy.

I also got one of those tacky doucher butt plugs for the exhaust so it might last longer. IDK.

I'll have to do that.

I'm still not 100% sure if I'm ruining baffle packing by not being tuned right or what. My temps are really low and my exhaust is really smokey. Makes me think I'm not getting complete combustion.

I'll mess with it some more.
