Wanted bantam high level exhaust

Unread post by Iand » Thu Jan 05, 2012 1:28 am

I'm after a high level exhaust for either a d3 or d7 bantam engine, I need both the front pipe and either a d7 or d3 plunger type silencer, any condition considered!

Thanks
Ian

Probably best off getting a new un, not many about it seems. I want a big bore high level, I recently saw a scabby old one on fleabay go for more than a brand new one! I've got a little bore one in use, if you find a big one I'll swap but mine has been cut down for odd pipes. In fact you might be as well to get a big one, get a bit more go.

Do you think the big un will make that much difference?

The exhaust port is the same size there is just an adaptor ring. The air-flow isn't ever going to be perfect through such a system. I'd like to try it but I don't really want to spend the pennies on a new one unless I'm sure it's going to be an improvement.

Yeah I guessed as much greeno, skint at the moment though, guess I'll wait and see if the new condenser, plug and different carb and reset timing do the trick, I do love the look of the fish tail pipe!

Oh, you mean the very early type? Same applies though, don't see many on ebay other than new uns.

Got it running sweet today, spark plug and condenser, timing in vaguely the right place?! Few laps of the car park, job done! Oh and fixed the leaky carb too! :D
