I was wondering is anyone knows how the weight is distributed on a GTS 300. I would like to make a custom exhaust and it should weigh the same or more than stock exhaust?

With all the ways to mod out the Vespa, it seems like a good idea to have inserts that make it possible to customize the back pressure.

Stock exhaust is heavy. Like 20-25 lbs heavy. Doubt you can make one heavier.

You should compensate for any imbalance automatically. I rode two-stroke Vespas, with the engine all on one side, for decades without it bothering me. Some guys ride with the scooter leaning slightly left, and some slightly right, just depending on how you sit on the saddle.

It seem like it would be harder to make a lighter one, bra...
