It's a shame about the loud, but great news about the start!

Ride safe, Ted

Its not big problem. I have already started the fix.  I had the same problem on one of my magna's where the previous owner removed the baffles. It was too loud to ride in my neighborhood.
 
just takes a couple hours and $25 .

It is still sitting where i left it. Its too cold to get anything done so I spent a week in George Town Grand Cayman.  ;D

Maybe it because all the plastics are gone but it seem to be sitting lower than my other Connie.  I'll have to measure  to be sure.

I was walking through the garage and had a thought ...I wonder if it will start? Well certainly not without carbs. But I had a can of starter fluid. So I gave it a couple squirts and hit the starter switch.  No  hesitation. It roared to life and man it is loud. There is no baffles at all in the pipes.  Fixing that will be the first thing I will do to it. I can't stand it the way is is now. It is deafening.

Dude....don't you know loud pipes save lives?  :D

Loud pipes save lives...and also get your reported to the HomeOwners Association.

My neighbor next door said it's not that big a deal just drive faster than the speed of sound and no one will know it's you.

that's why I moved out of an HOA and will NEVER live in another one.  I keep my boat parked in the driveway and my motorcycle trailer on the side of the house.  :)

There's a guy with a Mustang that has louder pipes than my Indian.  Leaves home every morning at 630am.  No need to set an alarm.

BTW and off topic... has anyone dealt with making an injected molded part? (another project i got roped into).
I have a prototype part about the size of a bic lighter.  I need to make about a thousand of them.  (cheap)
I don't know where to start.

That's how I made the prototypes.

But they take a couple hours and they are not that great of quality. printed parts always have that rough texture. 
I need a thousand of them so printing is not feasible. 

Anyone? send me a PM.
