First off no i am not planning on doing this to sound louder it's because the bike came without the silencer, so my question is will running with out the silencer cause any problems other then getting the jetting in line? the bike is a rt100 if that even matters

would using a pocket bike silencer be better? it looks almost identical to the stock one used on these bikes

Anything would be better than nothing, but Id search ebay and see if you couldnt find a used one on the cheap.

haha, getting a cheap one on ebay is the easy part, paying for it to be shipped to canada makes it cost more then a brand new one:bonk::ride:

Well, then buy a new one :ride: Is there no one offering anything from Canada over ebay?
If I have to get stuff from ebay it sets me back about 30 to 50 US. Still it beats the price or unavailability over here on my little island.

To answer your question no it will not hurt anything. I rode my 1991 rt100 with no silencer for 4 years with no problems. You will be fine.

I would also remove the air filter to really make that engine free flowing then head straight to a sand pit or dusty track.

Everyone will be very impressed.

I would also remove the air filter to make that baby really breathe. Also would be an excellent idea to not wear a helmet so you can hear how sweet that thing will sound.

Any freestyle ramps close by?

clearly u didnt read the first sentence, i am not doing this to "sound cool" im doing this cause i bought the bike with no silencer, and im not doing it for any power performance of any kind, and there is no sand pits here just mud mud and more mud.

It won't hurt the bike once you get it jetted correctly.

However, it will definitely be louder than stock and I believe that the RT series silencers came with a spark arrester built-in to them. You will lose that benefit also.

I would think that you should be able to find something on eBay that won't cost an arm and a leg to get (shipping included). Plus, it will take a while to get the jetting figured out and after spending some bucks on jets and a new top-end (after you sieze it a couple of times) it would probably be cheaper to just find something that will work.

I am assuming your just a kid with no money.. Well heres the solution.. Do yourself a favor and GET A SILENCER!.. Theres nothing more annoying that a bike or quad with the silencer removed or the baffle torn out. It sounds like crap and its not gonna help with power it will hurt your low-end if anything.

How much is a silencer? I understand your probably just a kid with no money, but this isnt a hobby for people with no money. You will find out soon that if you dont keep up with the bike it wont last long.

Look around and find a complete silnecer off of any late 80s or newer 80 or 125 mx bike. Repack it and find a decent welder that can make a mount on your frame to connect to whatever mounts are on the silencer.

DO NOT ride it w/o a silencer. We will find you...

In the old days, people modified lawnmower silencers to work. Better than nothing..or not riding.

I'd keep watching Ebay. I've shipped stuff to Canada several times that I've sold there, not really a big deal.

Also, keep in mind that DT100 and MX100's are practically the same bike as the RT100. I believe the silencers all interchange.
