engine sound Modifications

back in the olden days we did all kinds of hair brain things to our rides. i was woundering if this one is a forgotten trick. we would take a certain sized washer cut it in half and weld it to the end of our mufflers to produce a similar sound of a jet aircraft. no more putt putt putt. in my town they made it a municipal code to not do that back in the 70's.

Here you go, the Folgers coffee can mod. LMAO!!!

Folgers Coffee Can Mod for Hondas

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

yeah that bubb rubb is much like we did but they did it a bit wrong. the washer worked better. here is an interest exhaust wistle for the hunters. kinda like to see that on an atv.

In the old days I have used many a can to patch exhaust pipes, but would have been ashamed to have come up with something like that, even on a dark night all by myself. lol
