I need to redo the exhaust and muffler. What pipe should I use? I was thinking 1" black from Home Depot/Lowe's. Is that ok?

Hope you are talking about steel pipe, not plastic or PVC

I'm hoping that is what he meant by 'black'.

you should use black pipe instead of galvanized. The galvanizing will burn off anyways, and you will be breathing the fumes the first few times you run it. You wont get much, but that stuff isn't good for you.

If you want to spend lots of money, you can buy stainless pipe from some hydraulic shops I think.

No, I did not mean PVC!
I don't want to spend alot and I remembered reading that something in either the black or the galvanized was not good when it burned off, but I couldn't remember which.
Thanks!

Yes the black pipe sold at hardware stored will work. I believe it is 1" npt. Just don't have it hanging out there too far without any support for it. Most of the exhausts on the garden tractors consist of a nipple straight out of the block then the muffler. Some put elbows in with another nipple to have it in different locations. Depends on the manufacturer or previous owner LOL.

If you want to get an exhaust that won't rust use BRASS pipe and fittings. It's more expensive but I plan to use brass on my next restoration project's exhaust, tired of seeing rusty pipes on shiny tractors.

Personally I would try to get the factory manifold and muffler for it, it fits better, sounds better, and the engine will usually run better too. I have tried all kinds of different things on my 125 and nothing worked better than the factory muffler and manifold .

I have a stock muffler that came on the spare K301 I traded for. I'll donate it to a good cause. Doubt I'll ever need it. I am in Huntersville if you are close
