Pro circuit pipe spark arrestor. I didn't like the spark arrestor that the pro circuit pipe came with as it was like a quite core insert and they don't make a performance model. So I ended up getting a FMF 4.1 spark arrestor and carefully cut off the rings that hold the screen on without ruining the screen. Then found a perfect piece of 1 1/2" muffler tubing at Autozone on the shelf that got pounded in the end of the exhaust. I left a little bit of an overhang in case it needs to come out with vice grips.

 

 

Mine does not have the 'smaller' insert/spark arrestor.

 

Have you ridden with the steel clutch basket yet?  Results ?

The Hinson momentum clutch basket does as advertised. Acts like a larger flywheel. That's the feel I got while riding up in Kennedy Meadows last weekend.

Your pipe end should be the same as mine? This is what mine came with and Pro Circuit said that's the only one they had. image_zpsla40dilg.jpeg

If anyone does the Hinson momentum steel clutch basket, I had trouble getting the stock gear back in the basket. They say to heat the basket and freeze the gear. I did and tried to pound it in with a shot peen type of soft hammer. It didn't go and Hinson was nice enough to put it in for free they are in Upland Ca. so they weren't far. The basket and gear had grease on it and they did it in a minute, so pretty sure they pressed it in.
It might work with the freeze and heat method but I would recommend a little grease on the gear while freezing it. That might help to be sure it goes in straight.

It wasn't that hard to modify. All the auto places carry 1 1/2" muffler adapter tubing. It goes from one size to another and was about 5" long. Cut It to size drill one hole in it get the FMF screen and Shazam it's done.
