My LI 150, with Casa 185 kit, runs really well with a 42mm AF Clubman fitted, but I find it a tad too loud! I know loud pipes saves lives, but I am fed up of setting dogs off barking, folks turning around to see what's coming, etc.Has anyone adapted one to fit an end can/muffler, and if so, how, and did it quieten it down? Tia.

bgm do a little end can for their exhaust (clubman type) perhaps you could adapt that.

Torbaylambretta have some for sale on their website. Have made enquiries re compatability with Af Rayspeed clubman, but it seems the AF flared tailpipe is an issue! 🤔

I saw your post on Faceache and was also interested.
I was hoping you would get an answer for this.
The other problem i have, the tail pipe is angled upwards.
This causes black oily deposits to end up all over the back of the side panel.
I am sure im running too rich and a bit too much oil. But i prefer slightly rich than weak. And i should look at the jetting.
I did consider cutting it and angling it down.
Reading some threads on here though...it would seem that restricting the tail pipe with a smaller diameter can cause a heat build up and seizures.

I have emailed Torbaylambrettas today. They replied and suggested that the flared tail pipe of the AF Rayspeed clubman would be a problem. I have emailed back and asked for the dimensions of the bgm tail pipe to see if it would be feasible to modify an AF one. I will post their reply in due course.

Would reducing your exhaust port timing cut the noise enough?
