Bought set of Rinehart 2 into 2 chrome pipes. Sanded pipes and end caps. Polished end caps, welded bungs into pipes and painted with flame proof VHT. came out nice. Bought Fl Vied 10, haven't rode it yet.

Added some welded washers for a little back pressure.
Were you ever able to test this out? I feel like this is an old school thing to do maybe on an air cooled twin. None of the current nicer exhausts incorporate anything like this and it makes me wonder if this is all just a myth?

I know I'm a newer member around here but I would like to see a picture thread for our DX's. I've been floating around the forum and searching but haven't seen one consolidated place to view DX pictures only. I've been a member of numerous other forums with specific picture thread for anything and everything. I think it would be great idea to see what everyone is running from stock to one off customs especially since we already have our own sub forum. So lets see what you have, anything to show off your DX!!!!! Mods...if its a good idea can we sticky this???? If im off base or it's something we can't do please let me know.

Looks awesome! What exhaust is that? Other than the muffler it looks like Akrapovic. I currently have. V&H Competition 2-1, but I'm starting to feel it's bit too loud.
Thank You !
The exhaust is a hybrid Akrapovic headers and collector with the Remus muffler. I made the adapter for the muffler to fit the collector pipe and the bracket to attach the muffler to the bike.

I originally had the V&H competition but it was too loud for me, even with the baffle in place.

Then I switched to the Remus Custom Cone but the heat shield would sometimes make contact with the ground on right turn leans...

Good job there! Looks amazing, too bad there's nothing like that ready made. I like Akrapovic headers but dislike the muffler part just a little bit. I should buy the quiet baffle to V&H, but as you (and others) has said, it's still propably quite loud...
