Can you drill out tip using a regular electric drill with a 2inch hole saw blade(for metal) or do I need a hammer drill? I've been trying for the last 45minutes and it doesn't seem like I'm making any progress. It doesn't appear to be a deep cut so i wouldn't think it should be too hard to drill through. :thumbsup: If needbe I'll just go get a hammer drill, been wanting one anyway, instead of spending 100+ bucks for HRC tip. thanks

Either your hole saw is dull or your drill is drilling back wards. It does not take all that long. I prefer to buy the power up tip from Honda but I did drill my first one out and it only took me about 5 minutes if that.

Something is not right. :thumbsup:

I'm drilling it straight on, but I'm not getting any fragments, maybe I am bottoming it out, but how can I correct it.

That is a very good deal. You shouldn't have any trouble selling it.

How much louder is the HRC tip vs. the drilled out stocker? I may be interested.

The HRC tip is a bit quieter and throatier sounding in my opinion. Both are somewhat loud but not anything like the Yamaha 426's were.

Were there any noticeable power gains over the drilled setup?
