    I’m trying to build a 250 sprint kart on A budget . I currently have a 2011 Kosmic lynx and a strong running 1997 CR250. My question Is, can I use a 125 pipe I already have? I was planing on welding the exhaust flange from the 250 pipe onto the 125 pipe. Is this worth It? Or should I just buy a 250 pipe? Wondering how much the performance would suffer ? Thanks in advance for any input on this matter!

    250 pipe if you want any real performance.  Pipe volume makes big difference…

    Thanks for your input Ted, I’m gona try and modify the fmf 125 kart pipe I currently have. The volume is very close to the Bills (after market pipe) that came off the cr250. Unfortunately the fmf expansion chamber length I’m using is 14 ” shorter. I’m trying to do this build on a budget so i’m just going to go for it! This could go horribly wrong but worth a shot.. Wlhen i get everything together I’ll post my findings.
