    cane 700 why has the main pipe been cut

    Hi im rebuilding my 1996 hurricane, tonight im cleaning up the main pipe, and i find it looks like 2 inches 50mm has been cut out and rewelded up, the mount has been reconnected and the end pipe extended,
    you can see this at A



    1. why was this does
    2. is it a common mod
    3. does it give better power (how much)
    4. more topend or more bottom end power,

    i am doing a full rebuild due to a blown crank, so i think may be other things may now be non standard, i belive the previous owner raced the ski, what do you think

    Mick

    It looks like some of Randy's work.

    The pipe was probably shortened. This shortens the pressure wave in the expansion chamber, and the resulting effect is an early powerband.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    It is a little known mod to cut the stock pipe and reweld it on the 700 twins. It will yield higher rpm so more top end. I say definitely keep it.

    would the ski have been upjetted to deal with this, the more i clean the parts up to rebuild it the more mods i find ,
    when running the ski ran 7100 rpm max and gps 58mph, so i am guessing other mods have been done to this ski , there are fire arestors insteed of filters and carbon reed valves and the crank case is all smooth and shinny like its been ported out, there is no oil feed and requires pre mix, and its fitted with renthal bars,

    Anyone with a bandsaw and a welder It's about time for Wet-Wolf to chime in here because he knows all about this mod and the Canes. You can check out his site at http://www.wetwolf.com/hurr/hurr.htm .

    Yes, I'm here. definately keep that pipe. It sounds like you have a Cane that was raced a little. It also looks like they have lengthened the stinger out 2 inches as well to use the same hose. It is hard to see, but I think I can see a water inlet at the stinger, thats good.
