I was wondering if anybody can give me an idea where to look for two stroke stingers?  I've looked online, but can't find much.  Not looking for the FMF silencers, but an actual slip on or flange type stinger.  Thanks.

im in the same boat as you, but, look at some snowmobile aftermarket places also for stingers. not just bikes or dirbikes. otherwise, just make some..

There was a silencer that came with the pipe I bought a long time ago.  It looked like a piece of crap, so I never thought about using it, but after looking at some videos of how to actually build one, I thought I could use the outer piece and build the insert.  Short story long, it looks like I can use everything.  I have it soaking in the parts washer right now to get the oil build up removed, then I'll take it out and take some pics.  I learned quite a bit just by looking on Youtube, and am excited to actually have something functional here soon.

I actually did a couple of things on the bike.  The first is that I had to cut the exhaust system I have in half to reweld it to fit.  While it was apart, I put it in the parts washer and cleaned all the inside baked oil off.  Squeaky clean!  Then I welded it back together with no major issues.  Then I took the old silencer apart, but couldn't figure out how it was constructed.  So I just started beating the shit out of the internals and it all came apart.  The inside looks a lot like my old Blaster silencer.  So I took the center tube piece, drilled holes in it, and then went to a local store and bought stainless steel pads for washing dishes and shoved that in there around the tube I drilled holes in.  I saw a guy do this on YouTube that builds race bike exhaust systems.  He says it works, and it was only like $3.  And it's super easy to take apart and clean and/or replace the stainless steel.  So it looks like I'm good to go.  Almost done with the exhaust!!  Of course I didn't take any pictures, not that they will be worth anything with my crappy phone.  I do have another phone on order and will be here next week.  Looking forward to actually taking some decent pics.

I remember reading an article about a bloke who built a similar muffler for his atv which caused a large bushfire due to the steel becoming red hot and blowing out the back.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Aaen Performance in Kenosha Wis. has a variety of steel and alloy silencers.http://www.aaenperformance.com/snow_exhaust.asp I have made several from scratch using aluminum tube for the body. I have a sheet of perforated stainless I roll my own baffle cores.I have a roll off 1" ceramic matting I use for packing. Kind of fun little projects, really.
