So I pulled the pipe from the frame. I can not hear or feel anything clanging in there. I can not see anything amiss.

When I blow into the stinger side, the air seems to flow quite easily. When I blow through the header side, the air does not seem to flow so easily. I mean, it flows fine, but I feel back pressure. Is this normal?

Tell me about it,I got two months worth of flying out of my ES pipe on a MVVS58. I quit using pipes not long after that. Went to a KS 1060 for a while,it responded better than the ES,but still wasn't what I was looking for.I'm a factory side dump guy now and always will be.

you have been using too small pipe, it shoud be for 80... (1080) because it is a long stroke, see recomandation on their page. I have one yeaars ago with original pipe, pulling out 9.2 hp...

My Saga Continues:

First, Thank You to all who have been helping me so far !!!!

Now, I have the pipe out. There is nothing banging around in there. It SEEMS rock solid. If I blow into the stinger it feels like I am blowing through a large straw (no resistance at all. But if I blow through the front end, it feels like there is some resistance. I can not get my head around that. Is this normal?

Is it possible that the glue got hot, and allowed the cone inside to slip aft? I can't imagine that it is clogged with oil after 8 flights???

I have tried to call Ed with no joy. Someone said he was active in the Jeti thread? Can you point me to him? What is his avatar name?

Something let go inside,you really shouldn't feel any resistance from just blowing air into the entrance of pipe.When you think of how much air is going into it from the exhaust.If it is brand new it certainly shouldn't be plugged up inside.Even if it was I don't know what you could clean it with, without harming the carbon fiber.
