"Dime City Cycles" Has Plenty Of Cool Parts...

(1/2) > >>

I just heard about & checked out the web-site for Dime City Cycles. Very nice web-site & lots of cool parts for sale!
Check them out at: http://www.dimecitycycles.com

They have a lot of Cafe & Bobber conversion parts, pre-formed exhaust system tubing, many different mufflers, exhaust brackets & hangers, lighting, helpful fabrication odds & ends, gauges, etc.

They also have a real neat "Tech Section" with a few articles on how to shape, fabricate & mount a seat, polish aluminum parts, plus gauge face rehabilitation: http://www.dimecitycycles.com/dccdiatribe/category/tech-articles

The pricing seams real reasonable & lots of parts to choose from. Check them out when you get a chance.

Good luck

+1 Have ordered from them in the past, good customer service, fast shipping times.

Got looking at one of the supertrap mufflers, good price and looks nice. Seriously thinking of getting it, anyone running a supertrap currently ?

I have a "Supersound" which is a Japanese version.  Takes the same discs & baffles. I have it with 7 discs ATM and no baffle sounds good, not too annoying for the neigbours weighs about 3kgs  ;)

I believe that forum member "thumperdh" is running a ThumperStuff header with a SuperTrapp on the end. You might try a search on his posts, as he discusses some of the tuning disks, etc.

My VT500FT Ascot has a custom dual exhaust that was fabbed up & has a pair of smaller SuperTrapps. It sounds great! Throaty, but not too loud or raspy. If you can afford a SuperTrapp, go for it. It's the only tunable muffler that I'm aware of.

A less expensive option is the reverse megaphone muffler sold by EMGO. Look for part #80-84030B. It is a 2-piece design that can be disassembled & re-packed when needed. The muffler is a straight through design with a perforated core, much like a glass pack muffler. You can usually find them on eBay for around $60+ to $80 something. Here is one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/17-Shorty-Dunstall-Style-Muffler-Reverse-Cone-Flat-Black-1-1-2-1-3-4-1-5-8-/161359782035?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2591cae093&vxp=mtr

(If you order any parts from Niche Cycle. Make sure that you tell them that you are a member of the Ascot Forum & you might receive a discount.)

I run the older 1-piece version of this reverse megaphone on my FT/CBR hybrid bike. It's a bit on the loud side, but not obnoxious. You can make the 2-piece unit quieter if you'd like.

Good luck
