The exhaust pipe is normally spring mounted to the cylinder head and bolted to the frame.. The spring(s) may be missing and ther pipe held in place only by one or two bolts to the frame. If the frame bolts are removed and the springs are removed and the pipe seems stuck then that is exactly what is wrong. The pipie IS stuck. Just get a medium to large rubber mallet and hit the pipe away from the engine at the bend just outside the cylinder head. Carbon and or dirt have built upat the fitting and are holding the pipe in place. Why are you removing the engine? tombones49@gmail.com.

How to decrease the exhaust sound of Vespa PX150


Hi, Saleh that all depends on your current muffler if it's a stock OEM muffler that is in excellent condition then you would have to seek the advice of a muffler expert to fabricate something for you but if it has rusted holes or has a broken baffle or you have an aftermarket performance muffler installed then a new OEM muffler would quiet down the offending noise..

Tired of the black stock exhaust on ur cat?


If u want to change ur stock black exhaust to a chrome exhaust without cost, and with out changing the sound. Just take a car buffer/ or by hand (by hand takes more time) and polish the muffler it takes the black right off and under neath is a true shimmering chrome pipe. just thought I though out a little idea for some customizing.

My car seems to all of a sudden shake when I accelerate and then the muffler makes a weird noise and it dies. I try to restart but will not restar...then I leave it for like 15min and then it will start....


Coil or ignition module may be getting hot and failing but the Most common cause of an engine that stalls and will not start back, but starts after it sits awhile:

Clogged catalytic converter. It lets your exhaust gasses build up backpressure and it can no longer breath. The pressure releases over time, allowing your engine to start again, only to build up the backpressure again.

Need to replace muffler on 2004 buell blast


If it is a stock muffler then buy another stock muffler and put it on - they are ALL the same. Buell never changed the exhaust on the blast at all. If it is aftermarket(vance and hines) than you need to measure the pipe and find something that fits.

As long as you get a muffler that is comparable to a stock muffler then it will have no effect on the performance. Most aftermarket companies make stock mufflers that would fit your bike though it would likely be cheaper to just replace them with stock kawasaki pipes.
As to replacing them, using an impact wrench will make removal easier and be sure to use a new clamp even if the old one looks good

Quite honestly, seek out a trusted muffler repair shop nearest you. They may have to replace if it is too rusted ($100-$150?) or with any luck they can weld it back into place ($25). Not dangerous (unless it falls off) but definately annoying!!

Engine will only run on 1/2 Choke


Hello edv40026:

Have you Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Restriction?
From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust Port or Muffler is Restricted with Carbon Deposits, the Carburetor Metering Pump Actuator Gap is Incorrect or the Compression is Low (Worn Rings/Cylinder).

Is the Fuel Line from the Fuel Filter Staying Full of Fuel?
The Carburetor Metering Jet Actuator is Set so the Pump Diaphram Dowl is Just Touching the Actuator Arm. These Components are Located Under the Cover with 4 Small Screws Holdong it to the Carburetor Body.
