Hi mate...as per pics will do tomorrow sorry having go pro problem...with the muffler i just removed end cap..cut muffler back with out opening it....left the fiberglass in as it deadens the sound so it's not tinnie sounding...also this leaves one or two baffles in ..and removes short 30mm baffle pipes...Was scared to remove the lot as I saw YouTube video and it sounds like a big can...as for power...a bit better...1s to 3rd noticeable...Now back to topic. @joelo , pics of it on you rebel? . So you left the baffle in place and just removed the fiber mat ? Thanks. I did this mod a while ago as what another member had suggested but I removed the thing inside where the fiber mat if rolled up. I did not place it back. I don’t like the sound. And it lost some ommmph in the mountains.thanks .
Hi all just did an exhaust mod on my honda rebel 500........so easy
step1 remove muffler
step2 remove end cap....drill out spot welds with 6mm bit...tap off with timber block,cloth and hammer
step3 cut 120mm max of muffler with grinder...this will leave last baffle in place ...important for best sound
step4 re fit muffler ...loose
step5 re fit end cap for position /alignment
step6 remove muffler...tap end cap on with rubber mallet and cloth....drill out holes in cap to muffler end
step7 rivet end cap on
step8 re install muffler....tighten and clean....
step9 FIRE IT UP..........
BY FAR THE BEST SOUNDING REBEL 500
BETTER THAN ANY SLIP-ON SOUND
SHORTER STOUT MUFFLER LOOKS SO PERFECT
DEEP LOUDISH.... GRUMBLES AND POPS
