I purchased a Bassani pipe for one of my DT360s and it didn’t come with the Bassani silencer. So I had to get creative and found a way to fit a universal DG silencer. Sorry for all the Imgur links, but I can’t seem to get the BB code using my IPad.

This photo shows the DG silencer next to a stock silencer so you can see the size comparison.

This photo shows the gap that I had to fill between the outlet of the pipe on the right, and the inlet of the silencer on the left, once I had both items installed.

I tried bending a mid pipe, but that proved beyond my skill set. I had a severely rusted rusted IT silencer that I bought off eBay thinking it might fit. Wrong! But I was able to cut off the inlet pipe which did fit snug inside the Bassani outlet pipe. However that IT piece was not the correct shape. So I got a free KX silencer from my son thinking it might fit. Wrong! But I was able to cut the inlet pipe…. It turned out that I was able to cut a portion of each piece and form the perfect length S-shaped pipe to act as my mid pipe. The IT piece fit inside the Bassani outlet, and the KX piece fit inside the IT piece and the DG silencer. I still haven’t welded the joints, but they are solidly in place between the fixed silencer mounting and the rigid Bassani pipe. Hopefully this link allows you to scroll thru several photos.

the end result looks and sounds like this.

Looks good & sounds sharp.
Just asking & not for any reason, but are you using the side spark plug for 'a reason', not that it matters as have no choice on my older motors.

Ha. I didn’t even realize that I capped the side plug instead of the centered plug. I will swap that tomorrow.
The stuff you guys notice is amazing.
