Fixing Leaking And Rattling Exhaust
Well, we have to fix our exhaust leaks and rattles caused by some claps we bought on Amazon. We were using the EVIL ENERGY clamp which worked pretty well but after 2 years just didn’t hold up. We went back with some simple clamps, everything is shown below and they worked great. We did have to do a little welding because of a larger gap on the Total Flow Muffler when using the Walker pipe. After everything was done, things sound great!

The Forney Flux Core Welder we used is their entry-level series that has held up with use using it for years. My son loved it when he first got it because he could learn and it is very easy to use. Now after going to school for welding and using industrial equipment, he would like to upgrade, but that is on his dime. For me, this weld does everything I would need for quick small jobs. If I had to work with thicker metal, would just pull out the arch welder and start melting metal.
The TotalFlow Muffler I think has a great sound for a very budget price. They have a very large selection so you can easily find the right sound for your ride. Now on the size of their pipe for the exhaust, our 2 1/4 pipe seemed a little big. Maybe they sent me the wrong size in the box, but we made it work. Just a little cutting and welding and the exhaust leaks were gone. Also having my son weld instead of me is great, he can really do some pretty welds, there was just a lot of gap to fill and he wanted to hit the trail.
