We have a member that goes by the name "Honest Abe", I believe.

Yup. Many moons ago, the posted his modifications of the stock exhaust. Back when the bike was so new, there was almost no aftermarket support for it. We had to get pretty creative back in the day.

Actually, there was a member from the 2001-2003 crowd who originated that exhaust modification on a Volusia.

Member Honest Abe more or less updated the mod on a C50, and His user name stuck to the procedure.

I'd kinda like to do the mod, not so much for a "Cool" factor, but more for making my presence more known to 4 wheelers.
The thing is, it's irreversible.

Someone on this site may have a pair of mufflers or complete pipes already modified.
Some folks may offer the modded mufflers or complete pipes just for the cost of shipping.
Keep Your eyes on the swap meet and vendor forums.

Loud pipes annoy your neighbors.

It's funny, my neighbor Corey has a stupid loud fat boy (one he's gotten tickets for before). When he passes my house, he shuts off the bike and coasts down the hill to his driveway. My peace is no longer disturbed and he is not receiving weekly visits from the local constabulary.
