I wanted to see anyone can recomend what I should use to cut CF. I'm making some shorty CF pipes "ala strati". I just need to cut through the cans. I've got a band saw as well as a chop saw. I was going to use the band saw since it has a much larger vise. I'll post pics when I'm finished.

Your band saw will work fine. Use a fine blade & mask the cut line to minimize fraying. dress the edge with fine sandpaper when you're done.

Don't forget to not breath that dust. Bad stuff.

They are CORED inside. Nothing in there. I'll be getting my bike back next week after some post lowside fixes. I'm going to post a sound file.

Thanks. I'm calling two bros. on Monday. I have another piece of cf a little longer with their logo on it. I'll see if they can sell me the two end pieces and I'll make another set to sell on ebay.

Man, I thought my 9 1/2 in pipes were small. What are those like 5 in not including end cap? They should sound sweet and load.

careful dude... although they look pretty snazzy, i'd be wary of running them totally hollow. works well enough for stock cans, but the carbon shells will discolor from the exhaust heat. if it's not too much trouble, slip a straight tube in there and stuff with muffler packing or wrap with headerwrap.

Thanks for the advise. I'm going to use the stock perforated tube and wrap it with headder wrap.

nice... another benefit is it'll keep the can shells (relatively) cool to the touch.
