Got a Japspeed Twin Silenced, Im struggling to remove the bung from teh backbox....

Anyone got any home made devices that I would be able to make up to get the bung out?

Or what have you used to get teh bung out, its in there tighter than a ducks arse...

Cant say for a japspeed exhaust but every other one ive ever seen is held in place with a bolt, not wanting to seem patronising or anything but have you looked underneath if there is one? normally take that out and they slide striaght out

I had the same problem with mine Blitzer - What i did - i had some domestic twin and earth wiring knocking about and made a crude hook with the end. Stuck it in the pipe + hooked the bung. Came right out with a good tug.
how did you "hook" the bung?

tie one end of the wire around a rats tail, then kick it as far down the exhaust as you can, start the engine and it will naturally run back out, hooking the bung in the process.

I use the end of a trolley jack handle ( with the little pin bit ) to slide into the bung and gentle tap/pull till it comes out, ( on my Japspeed twin silencer system ).

They are quite tight!! i got mine out with the tool i use to jack up my jack! worked a treat, its just a bar with a metal hook at one end.

Quality exhaust!

I eventually had to get a steel 10mm hex rod and get a nut welded to the end of it, so it could hook the end of the bung. It took 5 minutes hitting a hammer to the other end to come out. It was VERY tight...
