    I got a kerker oval can with 2 1/2 " opening. Just wondering if anyone ever used one. Im going to an auto place to get a midpipe made but already have kerker headers. I'll post a pic in a few. Thanks in advance.

    I hope so. He said it was. I thought it looked like a smaller one so I asked.

    I had 2 of them on my Gen 2. They looked, sounded and performed great.

    Kerker mufflers are available with different sized baffles. I think they are interchangeable. Mine were the "race baffles"... ..2.5".
    2" are also common. Not much performance difference if any.....but the 2.5 " is LOUD.

    You're on point though.....the exit pipe diameter is the same as the internal baffle.

    KERKER has been around since the Phillips lockhart (80's) catalog days. The only down side to the KK's? the packing becomes brittle and will fail. So, repack with any FMF motocross packing, should be gtg there after.

    Got it in today. Its a 2 1/2 with a 2" out. It's pretty long (bout 16" or so)but should work good at an angle with a shorter midpipe.
