    Big Red Muffler replacement option

    Hey guys. I know that Big Red (85-87) mufflers are getting harder and harder to find. They rot out on the seam on the bottom and are pretty hard to repair. Aftermarket replacements can be expensive, and loud. I came upon a real nifty fix that a good friend of mine made. It's cheap and effective, and looks good and it not loud.

    Tractor Supply has these in stock. It's a Stanley brand muffler for a Farmall Cub. They cost $30, and with a welder, can be fitted to your ATC250ES very easily. See picture for details. Just wanted to share as this is a great, easy, cheap fix for your Big Red muffler woes.

    Is the IH-1 muffler as listed on their website for $29.99?

    Nice option! I like TS, finally got one out here in NV.
    It would be easy to hit it with some black stove paint after mounting it.

    I wish I had thought of that. I think I am going to do this mod on my 86 BR, but I am going to make it removable and not weld it to the pipe. Thanks for sharing this information. I think you may have just saved some folks a bunch of cash and frustration versus trying to find a decent OEM muffler.

    I used a muffler from a 250sx it fits right on, but has the wrong bend and rubs the air box.

    There was also a thread some time back about using a Ford FO-4 muffler too. I've never tried it myself, but I remember people saying it was quiet.

    I am currently in the process of fitting a tractor muffler to my 83 Big Red. Original was rusted beyond repair, Rural King had muffler for $19. Welded on nicely. Gonna cut the heat shield off OEM and weld onto the replacement. So far it looks great, I will provide an update on how loud it is once I get the bike out on some trails.
