there are two designs for the Hiper silencer... the original one was two thin steel baffle plates werlded onto the central thin steel tube...


THESE SUCKED ASS!!!!!! :bitching:


I had 3 of them literally CRACK on me in less than 3 months of usage
the baffle platres would regularly crack off the central tube.. .creating a NICELY shitty sounding buzz/ rattle at the muffler from the inner baffle & the central tube vibrating around in there..... :x


I took them all in to the local muffler shop & had them rewelded again... HKS used only 3 tiny tack welds to connect the two baffles to the central tube... & the material was SOOO thin that the exh heat & vibrations just caused them to crack like the POS's they were... i then lost two of them, one was my fault ( don't ask... :x ) & one was lost when the foking bolt worked loose & it fell out somewhere on the way home...........the final one i sold with my 1st hiper ...



NOW there is a new design that is better... it is made from thicker steel material & it is all flat black painted... not raw ss like the last ones... & it has a " funnel" shaped baffle that is welded to the central tube...just one baffle & it is a much nicer looking design much like the tanabe & others etc... but it STILL only uses 3 slightly larger than before tack welds to keep it all together... :roll: i will be taking this one in to reinforce it soon...

these are the now referred to as the " black" silencers... about 45 bux ea., 50 max or you are getting ripped.....

??????????????

All the silencers I spoke of were bolted in that way... :roll:

OH WAIT.........actually the new "black" one only has ONE hole in it....????


.....I thot of only using one bolt but that ends up kinda pulling it to one side... & then it rests SLIGHTLY off center in the muffler & i figgered that might cause it to rattle or worse... work loose & it'll fall out again... so i just bolted in the one side loosly & drilled a new hole in the silencer thru the second hole in the tip & added the 2nd bolt....

it is solid as A rock now....
