Need help with cut, weld and sandblast project

Got to be someone out there with the skills who wants to make a couple of bucks... This is the can off my Speed Triple. Need about 12" cut off the end of this pipe; the primary baffle ends 12'' from the very end and the secondary about 10" so it's convenient to cut it about right there. Then cut off the end cap and weld it back on what's left to make a shorty. I know next to nothing about welding but I'm guessing if its all sandblasted first it will weld easier plus I can paint it afterwards.

Either that or is it easier just to fab one up from scratch? I had an aluminium Muzzy on my last bike, the end cap was secured with pop rivets. Once those were drilled out all that was inside was a perforated tube with some packing around it held in place with binding wire. Once a year I'd open it up and repack it. Dead simple and light too.

I ran the bike without a can and it really doesn't pop on the over-run too much so I won't need to go the Power Commander route.

I got your message about the pipe for your bike , unfortunately I don't have a welding machine or anything to make or bend it with in my garage . Otherwise I would help you out on it . Matter of fact the only thing I have in my garage is a fan for my bike lol

Cut the pipe with a porta-band, saw-saw or other.
Cut the tip off
Slip tip over pipe
Drill holes and rivet together

Scuff it down and paint it black, because chrome won't get you home.

Chromed. The secondary inner tube is flush with the very end so it has to have welded in place. At the other end it terminates about 2 inches before the primary so there appears to be a gap between the 2.

The end cap is very narrow so there's no option to cut that off and screw it back on.

I'll send a sketch of how I think the OEM pipe is constructed.

I'm thinking it would be a lot less hassle just to knock something up from scratch just like the Muzzy I had.

if its chrome its pointless to do any of it with good results. the chrome will have to be completely removed from the base metal around where the welding is and then its likely to begin flaking off once the fab is done.

so its up to you if you want to screw up the finish. ??

Anybody find a good sandblaster here? I'm looking for someone to sandblast a front bumper from my truck to remove the chrome so I can have it painted
