Had a 1100 that was a beater bike we built just out of boredom.anyway ran straight pipes,and ran like @^%$.Lost about 1/2 HP.The back pressure was non-existent.Solution we came up with was adding some of the washers from a old set of rear air shocks from another 1100 on the end of the pipe.Gave it enough back pressure and still had the loud sound that we were looking for.The pipe was 2",and once we welded the washer on the end had a 1 1/2 opening.But I would not recommend as each bike is tuned different,and we got lucky,did a lot of trial and error before getting it close enough to right.And if the mixture isnt right you can run too hot on the pipes and blue them if chrome.Since the one we chopped was a wreck to begin with it was more a fun thing than a everyday rider.But did turn into a daily rider for someone else.But I am a firm believer in a bike is a extension of the rider,and I have never been the norm,currently have a 1200 that is getting a make over this winter.
