    Default Hey Rune family! I just bought a Rune and I need your help!

    My name is Joshua and I am located in Greenville, South Carolina and I am looking for someone that can drill some holes in my exhaust. I have read the threads and I see everyone is saying 1/8 inches or 1.5 inches. I asked shops around me and they wont touch it or don’t even know what it is. Haha Also if there’s any Bike or Rune trips in the future I am down for that too!


    Thanks,

    Yea, I'm pretty sure no shop would offer to drill the holes. That's more of a "home" project You just need to buy a step bit for cutting holes and go for it. Unfortunately, all the pictures we had on here of folks that had done it always seem to eventually get deleted....folks pass on.....servers die...posts get deleted....etc.

    We used to have a "hole drilling party" at the Rune rally every year. But we stopped having Rune rallies a few years back (also sadly!)

    Hey Tim, how far is Tom (Wiz) from Greenville? It might be within striking distance for Joshua to get some PRO assistance in locating the proper hole positions at the very least. ?...thinking out loud here.

    Drilling in Rune exhaust is not a cheap way to modify motorcycle sound. The biggest problem is if you do it too much, you can't fix it back.
    Why you don't go with a new modified exhaust of your choice?

    Drilled mine from the beginning and never looked back. Super simple and makes it sound like a Rune should.

    I'd much rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air than being in the air wishing I was on the ground.

    I'm not sure that I can agree on "like a Rune should". At every one of the "parade" rides during the Erwin rallies, I always thought the drilled exhausts around me sounded just like my Kubota tractor.

    It's too bad that "common sense" isn't
