    Cool...I saw that bike for sale. Just went through Vernon twice in the last month.

    You will need to ditch that Motad exhaust. They are extremely restrictive.

    Alternatively, bang out the first baffle, which is about 8 - 10" in from the end of the pipe.

    But be careful the chisel doesn't follow through, or you'll never get it out.
    Not that I've done that.

    It went away after a few tens of thousands of miles.
    Still in there, but even though I've taken that system off the downpipes are scraggy but the muffler is still good, and I'm not cutting it open to retrieve the chisel.
