If you could choose one saw that needs a tune up....

Recommended Posts

....what would it be ?


I'm interested because I have a few years experience tuning two-strokes and frankly the exhaust design on saws has more in common with a 1950 DKW than a modern Aprilia.


Drilling holes in a flawed design will not help much, the shape is just wrong.


So, if I fancied designing a proper pipe for a saw, which one would be most popular ?


Bear in mind that the pipe would be a fair bit bigger than standard and might need some awkward routing - otherwise the manufacturers would have done it themselves - I won't pretend to be better at this than the manufacturer so specialist applications might be required.


Any ideas ?

if your gonna make one make it to fit the stihl MS341/361, i reckon its one of the most popular saws in commercial use :)

Prob a MS200T but I doubt it would be very practical.


Failing that a 046/MS460 since they are a brilliant saw from the start.:thumbup1:

Here is a pic that may interest you.Although this is a full on racing saw.



That's a good pic that shows what a properly designed pipe would look like, not very practical for normal use though.


I'm wondering if something half way between that full size efficient pipe and the stubby inefficient standard pipes might be possible.
