    ok cut it off laqst night and now at about 2000rpm with gas on the cruiser starts to whistle and the whistling gets worse the more i lay into the gas. what gives? i thought the resonator was what made the cruiser whistle? any one have this prob? what should i do? i linda like haveing the resonator off so i dont bash it on rocks and it sounds a little better. does any one have any pics of the mount they used to re mount the pipe after the resonator was cut off? GUMBY????

    thanks
    mike

    of course it will whistle more. you should have asked [glow=red,2,300]BEFORE[/glow] you hacked it off.

    I don't mind the whistle. I get whistled at by chicks all the time. ::) :eek: :flipoff2: :D

    I think most cruisers whistle. Mine stopped the day I put on the Borla.

    Kurt,
    I can supply you with a whistle or you can blindly hack off your resonator and create your own. I'll send you my PayPal address if you can't find it with a Search.

    I'm still saving my pennies for the S/C. C-Dan is gonna sell it to someone else if I can't come up with the $$$ pretty soon. :(

    I think the whistle is cool :cheers:


    EDIT:

    Couldn't resist....think the whistle is an indication of a failing muffler bearing?

    I sure haven't noticed a whistle. i'll take a pic of the mount tomorrow when I'm back in the shop, but it's just a universal hanger.
