Hope you guys were serious when I read about burning out the sludge by throwing the pipe in a bonfire. Got invited to my sons house for an ice skating party and he said he was having a fire....so I roasted my JT pipes. I'm pretty sure they were lighter when I carried them back to the truck once they cooled down.

I just recently did the same with my RT2 pipe. It's the best way I've found to clean out all of the old oil and carbon build up. You know it's working when you see tan / yellowish smoke coming out the ends. I know my RT pipe weighs at least 1/3 less after its "roasting".

I understand this is the accepted method but it seems like this would weaken the metal?

How many times can you do this to the same pipe?

What about the sound deadening/packing?

Thanks
Jonathan

I’m by no means an expert on metal but from what I understand is that it’s rapid heating or cooling that weakens it so a bone fire would be fine.
Since I live within city limits and can’t have open fires what I do is use a map gas torch and put that into the cylinder end of the pipe till I get a fire going inside the pipe. Last one I did on my RT2 burned for ten minutes and I got a good amount of crap out after knocking the pipe on a block of wood.
Also I’m pretty sure there is no packing in these pipes so no problem there.

I will make you a deal Rick.

I will write the song. All of the lyrics.

With the assumption that you will sing it, and put it on YouTube.

Do we have a agreement?

a

“THE SMELLS OF BURNING 2 STOKE OIL.”

“The smells of burning two stroke oil”
“Makes me think that the hours and expense is worth the toil”
“To hear that sound and experience that smell, to know that I alone brought it back from a life of abandoned hell”
“The wife abides but doesn’t understand the hours of work it takes to reach the payoff in the end”

Lol!
I call it “bohemian two stroke”

My part is done:

“SILENCE IS GOLDEN”

SILENCE IS GOLDEN
TILL THE RING DING DINGS
POPPING AND HUMMING
MY MOTORCYCLE SHE SINGS

THE BURNING PIPE
NO SILENCER ATTACHED
THIS TWO STROKE MACHINE
THIS BITCH GOES ON ATTACK

THE SMELL OF SUCCESS
SHE BURNS ON THE FIRE
IF YOU NEED TO ASK WHY
YOU JUST CANT ADMIRE

OUT ON THE TRACK
SHE PUFFS AND SHE RUMBLES
BEST BE WIDE OPEN AND AWAKE
AND EVER SO HUMBLE

WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
THE MUD ON YOUR FACE
YOU’LL KNOW IN ADVANCE
YOUR IN THE RIGHT PLACE

AMONG FRIENDS WHO UNDERSTAND YOU
THEY DON’T HAVE TO ASK
YOUR BRUISED HEAD TO TOW
FELL FLAT ON YOUR ASS

TOMORROW’S A DAY AWAY
2 STROKE HEAVEN AWAITS
TWISTING THE THROTTLE
AT THE DROP OF THE GATES.

ASCO
