Sleeper Pipe Review #1
I received my "sleeper pipe" today from Meis and DVM for my CT3 and here is my review:

DO NOT DO THIS MODIFICATION!!!!!........ Because if you do......and have more than one Yamaha Enduro........You are going to spend a lot of money doing this mod to ALL of your bikes. This is one of the most ingenious performance improvements I have seen while still retaining the stock look of the bike. I am thoroughly impressed with the performance of the pipe compared to stock.

I put the pipe on this afternoon and knowing how the bike normally runs I took it out for a test ride. Where before I could get to about 7500-8000 rpm (my and the bikes comfort zone) and it would sign off, this pipe revs to about 9500 rpm. I took it up a somewhat flat road and did about 65ish MPH and still had more left but it was in a neighborhood so I was being cool. The low end off idle is like stock but the mid range and top end is very impressive for a little 175. Be aware it is a little louder than a stock pipe but not much to where it is annoying.

I would give this a rating of a 5 being the best a

:OnFire :OnFire :OnFire :OnFire :OnFire

Scootern29 has spoken!!!!! Great Job Dave and Don

Sleeper Pipe Review #2
We are glad you like your Sleeper Scott !
I know your tach is being a bit generous on the RPM's you are seeing...but you definitely have power where you didn't before on the upper-end.
The CT175 , DT250 and RT360 and also the piston and reed versions of each all have their own unique power curves. The reeded CT175 Sleeper pipe does really open up the midrange and upper end power. Sleeper pipes all work a little differently because of each engines characteristics.

In regards to the pipe being slightly louder....
The additional sound the pipe is making is the sonic pressure wave we are reflecting back into the motor. It's the signature Sleeper pipe crackle.....the pipe works on both sound and pressure as do all good expansion chambers. .

We have been building these pipes for a few years now.....we strive for 100% customer satisfaction !


Thanks for the great review on Sleeper Pipe #29 !

Hammer....your pipe just showed up! :Ugh

thanks for the review, I thinking about trying one in the future.
I am liking my hooker pipe but man is it LOUD and its also a leg burner if your not careful.
Its fun for now but I am sure the noise is gonna get old and I dont want to give up my performance
These sleeper pipes sound like the best of both worlds :)

? Meis - is the 125 and 175 pipe the same? I still have my 125 pipe to mod but im running a 175 top end
thanks

72 AT-2 with some mods

Here's Clint Beastwood's SP30. Sleeper Pipe we just finished.
Its based on a CT1 pipe versus Scootern29's SP29 based on a CT2/3 pipe.



We test each Sleeper Pipe is on "the road" for at least 10 miles....
we check performance and if there any issues of any kind.

Quality control is important...so we don't rush or cut corners.

Another close up of SP30

Looks like SP31 will be Hammers' RT3 pipe as it just arrived yesterday.

We wont start on that till after Full Moon Fever !

My sleeper pipe is on a 69 AT1 with a CT1 top end. I need another gear, it`s that big of a difference.
