and u have worked with carbon fiber before cause when i made the silencers for my 125GP machine, i bought carbon tube stock ($25) and cut it to length. then machined the end caps, welded the baffle tube in place and wrapped the packing around it. final step... rivit it all together w/ ss rivets and wala ! a kick 125 silencer. my buddies nicknamed it "the HUDSON Stinger"

just curious how u where gonna roll this thang outta carbon sheet...

friends got an oven to cure the piece, it's a SS coffee cup, & i'll wrap it, after welding on a mounting tab, then bake it. it should stay tight since it's a 'coke bottle' shape, & i've got the inlet sides end cap fabbed out of SS. might make the exit end cap out of a cutting wheel...& once i get it opened up (2.75") i'll probably wrap it on...

this is my first time working with CF, but i'll consider it practice.

Be sure you use good quality resin.
Less resin is better.
