Hey, my first post here. Very nice Jim. I did the exact thing 25 years ago to a Craftsman 4" and still have it to this day. Like you found out, it is heavy but it doesn't bother me all that much. A reasonably priced ti one would be just the ticket! Years ago, I actually removed the muffler from my Kawasak 900 Z1 during an emergency and reinstalled it using my mini.
