Now, have an issue...with these pipes on, I am fouling plugs like MAD... Dont really get it though as the stock pipes are literally 1 3/8's with a 1 5/8's "heat shield"...these are 1 1/2, so they should flow plenty... It ran allright when we had these cut down all short, but when we extended them..foul, foul, foul...

Any Ideas??



Thanks!

Cab-
The 'Brown Bike' is such a boring name. I'd call it the "Turd Burglar" maybe. Or the "Skidmark".
Just kiddin. The bike is looking good.

Not sure on the fouling problem. Maybe the bike has some sort of blockage?
Oh, Man. The brown paint jokes are just too easy.

Rock on-

Man that thing looks great!!
I dig the bars.
Did "Sit here" make it to this paint job?
Seriouslly....I love that bike....even if it is BROWN. :D

I'm guessing the carbs have to be readjusted as well....how long is it taking for them to foul?

Oh!
Have any shots of it straight on from the rear?
That's my favorite bike pose.

Great job Cabbie!

Did you adjust your carbs after putting the longer pipes on? You are running rich.
Shooty, I know Im running rich..but does the pipe length affect it that dramatically?? It ran fine last year with diff pipes on it.. I know that it could affect it, but that much?
