  1. I believe I used 1” pipe. That sounds better for sure. I had to play around with different pipe sizes to get the sound I wanted. It’s all trial and error.
  2. By design the screen of a spark arrestor doesn’t restrict much at all. In the case of the 250l you can see the screen is wrapped around a tube with slots in it. Therefore it’s the slots that create the back pressure. You can see here there are 3 opening for the gas to escape through.
  3. No tuner, no intake, in fact I read ppl say not to mess with the 2017 air box it is sufficient with the improvements from the factory. The main reason I decided to mod the stock exhaust is because the 2017 has a larger header as well, so it made more sense because it’s already an upgrade over previous years.
  4. No codes at all. Runs fine, in fact feels like it picks up a tad more
  5. Yes the second video is my bike [emoji106] I wouldn’t worry about a lean condition. All your doing is uncorking the exhaust a bit, not ramming more air into the motor.
  6. Here is a link to how a stock 250l exhaust sounds. There are plenty of others on YouTube this is just for example. Here is how mine sounds after the mod I did myself. It was a noticeable difference for me and it’s just right. Not too loud, not too quiet.
  7. I live in the Bay Area, I like to ride around town mostly, a few times a year I’ll hit the trails but nothing crazy, mainly fire roads.
  8. Sweet I see some 705’s in my future
  9. I’m not completely sure but the other thing to remember is the 250l is fuel injected. That being said I would assume the computer is constantly adjusting the fuel ratio to meet conditions such as elevation and so on. So if opening the exhaust a little effected performance in a negative way I would assume the ecu would adjust. But again I’m not completely sure, just my experience with electronic fuel injection.
  10. I’ve been thinking about putting a set of shinko 705’s on my 250l. To my knowledge they are tubeless. However the 250l wheels require a tube. Is it ok to run a tube in the 705’s?
  11. Never heard of that one! I was thinking to start with 42 in the rear.
  12. I did it, I think I posted the link to it In your other thread. Either way here is is again. No issues at all for me, a little better sound, all legal. 250L Exhaust Mod
  13. Mounted right onto the mirror stem
  14. I’ve been MIA for a while due to life. I kept thinking how am I going to mount the led lights I have. I was thinking possibly make a bracket and attach to my handguards and that brought my attention to my mirrors. They have a very sturdy mount, and I found when I took them off there was plenty of thread to sandwich a bracket. So I made a couple simple brackets out of cold roll steel and gave them a coat of rustolium. When I have some more time I’ll get the wiring done.
  15. It is larger, I wanted to let it breathe better so I used a piece of conduit that was a slightly larger diameter.
