    For Sale 2016 Carpenter Rocket - SOLD

    SlimReaper, nice bike, I also have a carpenter race kit with sidewinder, can you explain a bit more about the "Exhaust system (wrapped and heat painted)", did you do this or have it done and if so who? I'm looking to do something for the heat, mine is bare and super hot. Thanks.

    For Sale Help Assigning Value 2017 R3R w/Carpenter Racing Kit

    For whatever reason, mine doesn't have a lot of decel popping, very mild, I barely notice. I do have the baffle in which dropped the decibels, i ride with ear buds without issues, and my wife rides with no ear buds, just helmet and no complaints from her about exhaust noise.

    How to clean burned material of the exhaust headers?

    I had a grocery store plastic bag hit my header pipe on one of my bikes while out riding. Melted all over the pipe, turned black and gooey. After I got home, with the pipe still hot, I poured water on the plastic bag and it hardened quickly and fell off, no residue on the pipe no polishing or...

    Carpenter tuned the bike with the baffle out. I had to ask for a baffle when I got the bike back and he shipped me one. I asked Bob if inserting the baffle would require a re-tune, he reported definitively no, might drop a couple HP off the top end with baffle inserted but the ride would not...
