Loud pipes on a C50 are for children. Hope this helps.

I always think of these kids who put an aftermarket exhaust on a Honda Civic. With a small displacement engine that runs at high RPMs you end up with something that sounds more like a weed whacker than a Hemi Cuda.

The C50 is a small displacement engine. It'll never sound like a partner displacement engine, no matter how much you spend on the exhaust system.

So golden pony, enjoy the bike for what it is, it is a great bike and you will have lots of fun on it. Buy yourself lots of other accessories and chrome parts, its a sickness! I use my bike for cruising around my town. I don't want to start another topic, but I feel this bike is awesome for cruising around at 65 and below. So that being said, I'm done ...I'm off my high horse, I hope I haven't offended anyone.

The header pipe is only 1" in diameter. You'll never make the connection work, as the ID of the slip on is too large. In general, there are no shortcuts here.

I really wanted that Harley sound too.
So I got a fairing, installed some big speakers and a powerful amp.
Then I made a recording of myself and put it on a loop.

You can hear me screaming from blocks away going, Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato! :grin2:

That's the best idea I have heard yet. I wish I could find a motorcycle that sounded like a Harley but ran like a Suzuki! LOL, no I'm just kidding I'm happy with what I got.

Hope you realize that they may not be in business anymore or product may have changed. I noticed the last review was almost 4 years old.

He may have also been shot by local gang members who thought they were under gunfire.

I actually put a set of those on my 2001. VERY LOUD under load. Sounds ok, but at 65/70 they are truly loud. I will be putting an OEM used set on this fall. When I got this bike it had NO Mufflers at all. The shorty's helped and it does sound better than naked pipes.

I reversed the shorty (used smaller diameter end), bought a reduction ring set, used muffler repair cloth to build up pipe enough for the reduction set to grab.

I will say: If you really want loud, do it. Just know that Loud is really LOUD with these on this bike.

Sorry guys, I've been working strange hour. so getting back on here or anywhere on line has been hit n miss.

I just posted what I finally did: Shorty's. Until the fall when I plan to put an OEM on it. If I can find a decent set I can afford. We are currently remodeling and most of the cash is going right into that.
