Anyone have a muffler with.. Personality.. to suit a 250 they might want to sell?

Or recommend a brand who makes a suitable one?

I look on trademe, but I don't see much for me.

I know I am asking for trouble asking to hot up a 250, I hear the cries of "why bother" but then as someone else wise (or crazy) said "Somebody has to do it" ;-)

Just trust us on this one, keep the stock muffler, save the coin for when you get a bigger bike...

Heh, worse! No flange, just welded straight onto the collector. So I'd have to flange it, or just get a new one welded stright on like the current one.

I don't have a photo right now. But I could do one.

nope thats even better news if you ask me, do you have the diameter of the pipe? - I got one of those mufflers off Henry (www.motorcyclewrecker.com) I had to build a new flange up but it did the trick and sounds the part, you can easy polish it if ya keen - I am looking at doing it when I get some free time.

Does it make the bike go any faster? probably, does it sound cool? heck yeah.

Funny that, some wally did it on my old '90 GSXR 250... I see thats what you own!
Never got much more than 19km/L compared to my other one where I was getting 24km/L
Admittedly when were raced the two, the one with the f'd baffles had the better top end, but it also caused the can to start rusting out!
