Hey Guys, Here's wishing that your day goes well for you.
We have a newbie " Letsgorace 48 " that a "silencer exhaust" was mentioned in his write-up. I'm very interested in making such a muffler. I'm forever out in the National forest and would like to be just as quiet as possible. I put out a trail camera in different locations to "see" just what type of animals are "out here".
The day before yesterday I had a deer "blow and wheeze" at me while setting up my camera and yesterday while crossing a ditch - - - had a deer go airborne passing in front of me not more than 50 feet away. [ Thinking about mounting a camera on the front of my ATV with a grip trigger.
Waaaaaay back in 1957 while in the army I had a motorcycle that I put steel wool in the tail pipe. That was great until it blew-out while "pushing it ' [ 70 +] and it made so much instant noise I almost wreaked it going out of control.
So - - - - just how would a person MAKE a real quiet muffler. My ATV has plenty of power to spare 250cc and 4 forward gears/ neutral and reverse with manual clutch. Would it do any damage to the engine - - backpressure ? What else have I missed ?
It would be great to "tip-toe " through the forest.
Your in-put would be GREATLY appreciated..
Have a good one - - - - - Norman
