Default BME 44 muffler options.

Cans or tuned pipes are out due to placement. Anyone know of a wrap around pitts that will bolt on to the 44? Have a side mount and looking for something quieter. Custom is an option as well. Thanks in advance, Joe

Hi Joe,
I think that bisson makes a pitts for it. I used the banjo stock muffler and it was pretty painful! Could hardly call it a muffler!~). Good luck.

I looked at Bissons site and they don't list for a BME. Without calling I don't know if one would work from a different brand engine. Size, bolt pattern and all. Thanks for the response. Joe

Thanks, CUB1. I"m assumeing its quieter than the banjo muff. Hows the performance? If you tried both, how do they compare? Thanks again, Joe

Joe,
The J&A pitts is much quieter than the bango, and I didn`t notice any difference in the performance of the engine.
