Just wondering if there is anything simple you can do to get a little more sound out of the stock can other than getting rid of it, Im one of the few who likes the look and size of the stocker, Just wish it had a little more growl. SZ.

I have a FZ6, and a lot of guys take a 1/2" x 12" drill bit and make a couple of holes in the stock cans for a bit more noise.

I also just read about several doing a similar thing on Ducati GT1000 cans, though those were smaller holes.

Definitely saves $$$

Ive done that to cruisers where the plate is inset and out of sight but it might stand out like a sore thumb on the bandits big chrome end cap, Im sure it would sound better though, the end cap has screws for removal but they are tack welded to keep you from tampering, Thought about chiseling at those welds but afraid it would really guff up the finish. Thanks for the idea though.

i have never done this to a bandit.

using a stick welder, drop the rod down inside the outlet tube, and burn a hole in the first plate it touches.

clamp the ground to the centerstand, uplug the black box.

YYeeaahh, if there,s a plate in there, or even a long drill bit, like a 1" or longer, Id like to know whats down there, I have visioned a tube with fiberglass packing around it but i may be way wrong, probably metal channels with plates at angles.

rworm,

You're not going to find an exploded view of the muffler, as it has no serviceable parts inside of it and was never meant to be taken apart

Hey rworm make sure and let us know how the trip to the dyno goes ; I'm really curious about the numbers on your intake and exhaust mods

I went to the depot and bought 2 long drill bits, a 3/8 and a 5/16, I put them thru the exhaust exit hole and drilled 4 holes in the wall which is about 11" into the can and now it has some tone, nothing drastic, just a nice tame growl.

I don't know how safe it is to be drilling down into your mufflers guys , metal shavings could concievably be sucked around by back pressure waves. Make sure to clean 'em out

using a stick welder to burn a hole (down deep in the outlet tube) was actually suggested by US Suzuki so cal service rep, for a problem muffler back in the eighties.

I drilled the mufflers on 3 past cruisers with no side effects but now youve got me scared, as soon as i read your post i went out there and pulled the can off and shook it up and down and can hear a slight tinkle in there, I put the air hose in both ends and blew about 100 psi and got nothing, would stick burning a hole in there not create some metal waste of its own? I know several riders who have cut out the entire inner wall with a sawzall, not on bandits but on the big metric V-twins while the pipes are still on the bike, That came from a web site with step by step and photos so i really pray i didnt hurt the bandit!

Only packing is behind the metal screen-notice the tabs(welds)front and back there are 2 round plates welded where tabs were and a 1-1/2 pipe ran from beginning of muffler to back-if you drill thru them you would have a hard time getting shavings out the way it is built
