  1. hey all hope u guys/girls had a good weekend

    im in a little situation at the moment
    my bike is pritty loud and i wanna make it a little bit more quiet
    one of my mates suggested shoving steel wool into the exchaust
    is that a good idea like would the wool damage anything to my bike or affect it in any way besides sound??

    cause i dont wanna go shoving steel wool in there and finding out the bike wont work
  2. What type of bike is it? Is it the original muffler or an aftermarket one? Maybe the muffler needs replacing as its all rusted and falling apart?
  3. yer tht was my first idea
    the bikes an xr200r
    its an original but the bike is a little old
    and i got some price quotes on the muffler and they(honda) and a few after market shops want to charge me like $800 for a new one so im trying to get an alternative instead of buying a new one
    its not really rusted or falling apart it has a small hole but thats about it
