Hi to all! I just bought a Rune (the bike I’ve always wanted).
I’ve searched this board for exact instructions or pictures of the famous 1 1/8 hole in the exhaust, but I don’t seem to find instructions on the process (only some good discussions on its sound)
If anyone can help I’ll greatly appreciate it.

IMHO, a hole diameter of just 1 1/8" is for sissies. :) If you're going to drill your Rune exhaust, do it right the first time and go all the way up to 1 7/8". That's what the wife chose for her now noisy IB way back when the guys were laying the bikes down on a blanket at an Erwin TN rally. She's never regretted it. I still enjoy my totally quiet CBC with it's non-modified OEM exhaust.

I don't have any pics of her drilled exhaust, but I can tell you that the holes in the exhaust cans align perfectly with the cross-over tube visible from the bottom of the bike.

I always remember to precede her when leaving our gravel driveway to go on a ride together, because her holes blow the dust all over the place and I end up with it in my contact lens and all over my nice clean bike otherwise.
