drilling the muffler

and opening up the air box.

it looks like the air box sucked hot air from between the cylinders to meet noise regulations

we used a HUGE drill bit with a hex end on it.

gotta duct tape it all together so you can pull the drill bit back out.

That may slightly increase performance but I don't like the fact that you're bypassing the air filter when drilling hole in the air filter housing.

a hole saw install bit is 2 1/4 standard

the drill bit used for the exhaust is too small for a 12mm wrench to fit over it,
but a 13mm wrench will

the purpose of taping a socket around it is to keep the bit centered in the bore.

those holes are OUTSIDE the air filter. go look at the PBucket page to see , lmk if you need more pics, the filter is only around the TB

Based on your last post you're saying that the hole that you drilled in the exhaust is 13mm?
If that's the case then a ˝" drill bit will work.
If I'm wrong please correct me. Thanks
