Re: MUFFLER CHIRP FIXED!!!!!!!!!!
Written by joelstaruck on 7/16/2013 at 12:00 am

I actually tried a screwdriver, but didnt work. I ended up using a long prybar. There is no obstruction, just a loose baffle. I tried denting the OUTSIDE of the can, but that doesnt work. The key is to slowly move the end of the prybar around in the muffler until you here the chirp get noticeably louder. That is the spot where you need to pry. Leave the bike running and keep working it until the chirp is gone. Hope you end up chirp free! I cant guarantee it will work for every chirp, but it might. This is the easiet way to stop the chirp unless you cut open your muffler or drill holes and put bolts through your muffler. My way causes minimal damage to the expensive stock muffler.

MUFFLER CHIRP FIXED!!!!!!!!!!
I fixed the chirp!!! It was easy!!!!!!!! Ok guys, here is how to do it!!! With the bike running, I stuffed a crowbar in the muffler outlet. If, all the bikes are the same, the chirp will be in the last 2 inches of the muffler. I moved the crowba

    Nice. Just what did you do, not that I have the chirps. You need a bent bar or screwdriver and the noise is from an obstruction or sharp edge only a two inches in the exhaust? Alfred

    Basically, the last baffle is pooling water up and the lower weld fails, I'm guessing (Cant' find an open one on Google.) However it happens, this piece of metal, now released from the weld, becomes a 'reed' like on a clarinet or obo

    Trust me, if you get the chirp, it will drive you crazy! My chirp got very loud and sounded just like a VW bug. I was embarrassed to ride it. Now that the chirp is gone, I love to ride my PC again. The prybar trick was a last ditch effort to stop

    So it sounds like this last baffle in the muffler is about as useful as the aerodynamic attachments on Formula 1 car front wings. I often see a car loosing one or more of these (very expensive) gadgets and the driver continues to go around the track
