    Not forgotten about this one,been a lot going on behind the scenes, so to speak
    Our semi tame master fabricator " mistacat" has come up trumps again and waved his magic welding torch over the frame,bracing the head stock,making the rear frame and making the Enfield 500 tank fit,plus a load more besides
    Chris , you are a star

    Well that's the dry build done!
    Loaded the wee beastie into the van and taken to have the exhaust made!
    Once the exhaust is made I can strip it all down and prepp for powder
    Then the fun can begin

    Also has extension piece for when panniers are fitted,
    And a DB killer so it will pass noise tests for LDT

    I understand what you're saying. However, I did take guidance, not just from Mikeyboy, and the straight out and into a 'Y' piece was favoured.

    We'll just have to see how it runs.

    I have a Gletter can about that size, on a 1000cc R80 G/S with a Staintunne OEM style system with a balance pipe and the small flat collector.
    it is still either far to loud or too restrictive, there simply is no substitute for volume.
    That db killer wont make much difference, you want one about a foot long with almost the complete length wrapped with exhaust packing and only a few holes open on the end for the MOT, then you can gradually slide the wrapping down until you have your preferred combination of sound and performance.
    Good news is that it only starts getting restrictive as the revs build up, so if your motor pulls well from low revs and you rarely get past 4500 revs it will be work fine but if you regular use involves drag races reving out to max in each gear expect your times to stretch out about 10%.

    The silencer has a full length absorption baffle in it, but until the motor is running I have no idea what sort of noise levels we have to deal with.
    Day to day it doesn't really matter,but the bike will be noise tested for the LDT,s hence the additional baffle pipe!
    If needed we can tailor an additional silencer with that to really shut the thing up,
    As mr boff says,on the trials the motor won't be revving hard so all will be fine
