DLE 170 Muffler mod

My Buddy Mike Stout had a hard time getting to the needles on his DLE 170CC twin.
He suggested this muffler mod and I made it happen!
I also made the exit pipes the same length... Then re-media blasted both pipes to match.
Later I made him a custom long screw driver to reach through from outside the cowl.

Now Mike is Happy....

Be like Mike

THAt is awesome!!!

I wish other manufacturers would keep this in mind when making headers and mufflers.
Also, on almost all twins, the carbs enter on the bottom, same side as where exhaust is?

Why do they not make it so that the carb is on top, and the exhaust is on bottom?
Makes more sense to me. it would be way so much easier to get to the needles, and also the air coming in would be way cooler than between mufflers or headers

what say you?
