I was averaging 53mpg, but now, I'll have to wait and see. I hope to do better than 53, if not, I'll close up the lollipop up a lil more heh.

Good info in this thread as I want to chop the mufflers off and lolly pop the headers. I get about 54, 55 with my VLX 600 at the moment.

The welded washer method works much more efficiently though, and depending on the OD of the washer you can tune your exhaust a bit more effectively. I've since removed them.

Keep the rubber side down, unless of course you have a rubber head!

Installed the straight pipes, now waiting for my carbs to get back from the tech.

my old 750 had home made drags, with exhaust tips and reducers to the head pipe. I made a bct baffle at a local exhaust shop and then used a lollipop to hold it in, turned about 25% to the side. I did in the high 50s for mpgs and sounded really good.

I really like the washer idea because I'd assume it quiets the pipes down a bit, but how on earth did you get those inside the pipe?

This is what the lollipop baffles look like. Mine are installed between the header pipe and straight pipe. I just cut two small slits with my cut-off wheel and slid the baffle in, then welded the slits closed.

Note: I do not own rights to that image, just posting it as demo*
