WR450 exhaust mods

I used an angle grinder with a zip-cut disc (3/32 thick)
Here is the end cap with the tip running through it.
Here I've cut away the end cap from the exhaust tip. I used a dremel and carefully cut between the end cap and the weld that holds the exhaust tip in place. (on the outside)
At this point you have to cut the pipe off between the weld and the loose end cap. Obviously so you can remove it. :-)
Quite a bit shorter! Forgot to measure it though but I basically cut it in front of the last baffle (or first if you are going from the exhaust tip)
This is the first baffle looking from the exhaust tip.
This is the new exhaust tip. After trial fitting I will be making some changes to it. First off the mitre isn't right and second, I don't like the fact that you can see the tip of the second baffle tube. You can't see much of it, but it is visible (refer to last image)
I cut the original tip out and used a piece from inside the exhasut to fabricate my new tip. Not quite long enough though so I guess I will have to buy a piece. I used a dremel to cut the hole to except the larger diameter tubing. Stay inside the line and use a stone of some sort to clean it up and get the size exact.
A shot from the back. As you can see, I need to lengthen or change the angle so you cannot see the pipe from the first baffle. I want to keep it forestry legal.
Nothing is welded yet so changes can still be made.
