Hi guys, Need your assistance quick!
I am in the process of building a Stratus with a YS91 and will be using a Hatori SB16H muffler on it. My Friend is painting a tempest canopy but needs to cut out for the longer hatori Pipe to fit. Can anoyone who is using this set up post some pictures and most important take a measurement of how much in front of the muffer they cut/removed from the stock canopy to allow it to fit without touching?

Thanks for your assistance

Thanks Please let me know. The reason I need the measurement is that the ship will be built long after the canopy is painted. My friend is ready to pain it now, so I can't measure off a completed ship..

approx 36mm wide. depth into canopy to hard to measure. i started with muffler unbolted. and cut a little at a time till got kind of close.then bolted on muffler. and keep trial fitting canopy cutting a little at a time. it will take a while but canopy will fit perfect around edge of muffler when done.

Check the Latest version of the Stratus Manual

If you take a look of the manual you will see on page 187 a Cut-Out template which works wonders for both Hatori mufflers. I sent this information to Bill (Arizona canopies) and he did a great job when painting my canopy. The muffler clears the canopy with no problem.

I have a picture of the canopy I use on the regular basis.
