I did the Clayton Deep Mod yesterday and it sounds freakin awesome. I used a 12" 7/16 bit and drilled 4 holes in the shape of a smiley face.
I just got back from a 165 mile trip and no pops or backfires. I actually think I'm getting better gas mileage too. I haven't even hit reserve yet.
I'll see if I can get some pics up soon.
Best 15 bucks I've ever spent.

Poolmaster. I did the same mod last week. I now have alot of popping on Decel. Its funny how 2 of the same model bikes have 2 different results... O well, i guess i did something wrong.

Are you running stock jet? I've got a Dynojet Stage II kit with K&N filter. Maybe you should try that or adjust the A/F mixture.

Almost everyone has popping after doing this mod. Removing the PAIR valve is the solution. :wink:

Here's pics of what I did. The left 3 holes are drilled into the baffle. The far right is just through the outer plate. I did the same on both pipes.

I did the Claton mod using the 7 15/32" holes, I like the sound, have put about 1000 miles since doing the mod, only once I noticed a pop on decel when the bike had not warmed up good yet. Mileage seemed to increase a little as well. Stock air box and filter.

I put 7, 1/2" holes in each pipe... Still got my Pair valve, and the stock jets... hasn't backfired or popped one time.

It is funny how the same model bikes will act differently.
