PostSubject: Installed small lillipops - awsome results   Mon Jun 03, 2013 6:45 pm

First i want to say thank you to Bluesman for coming up with the idea of using lillipops. I love the look of my cobra drag pipes but the stock baffels in them were too quite and with the baffels removed it was too poppy. I installed small lollipops today and they worked perfectly. Even better than i could have hoped for. I have all the volume of straight pipes with none of the high pitched cracking and popping when letting off of the throttle. Now when I back off the throttle is a super low grumbling sounds. It sounds amazing now. It's the exact sound I've been looking for. As loud as unbaffled straight pipes with none of the high pitched cracking. Another plus is it adds a bit of back pressure so the bike just feels better coming off the the line from a stop. Fan-fucking-tastic mod with amazing results!

Here's a pic. As you can see I used much smaller washers than the guys in the other threads. I wanted to keep all the volume and top end power but just turn down the volume on the high pitch cracking while adding a little bit of back pressure. Perfect result.

Nice work, did you mount them in the same holes that are used to secure the baffles?

Warm welcome to the lollipop land Jambo

I will try smaller diameter washers at some point, when boredom takes over.
Maybe winter time :)

Oh...what did you use for brackets and have you managed to break any flat with acceleration? ;D

Nice job I like the sound of straight pipes without baffles

Nicely executed, they look very strong from what I can see of the bracket center.

I did use the same mounting holes that the stock baffles used. The brackets I used were heavy duty. Very thick metal. They'll be no bending of these brackets.

So i took it out for a longer spin around town and I'd say that the volume is about 80%-85% of what it was with unbaffled straight pipes. Almost all of the volume reduction was is the midrange to high notes of the exhaust. The deeper tones were unaffected. As such, it creates a much deeper and pleasing over all tone. The bike actually sounds like it has a bigger engine because of this. The bike is much more torque-y off the line and when you get on the throttle. It's much more fun to drive now. This is the best mod I've done so far and it only cost me $3.88. I also sprayed them with satin black paint so now you can't even see them in the pipes.

Well done! I was just thinking about a double lollipop - 1 outer and one further in, each small rather than one bigger one. Might make for a better sound. Damn - haven't got an Intruder to experiment on! Suppose I could practice on the Hoover!
