Mine showed up at the shop today, just under $50 from Amazon so this weekend I'll be able to see if a BKK can be cleaned from the inside-up. When cutting the whips, do you guys cut according to the chart, or leave it long or what? I'll need to cut for the 8" pipe, and hope it might work for the future 6" pipe when the 13 is in place. EDIT- After looking at this thing, I may cut the whips @ 5" from the side of the center ball. With side compression from bending the rods, I'm thinking the whips will smoosh down only so far, before whipping out again, and through a 45 or 30 degree bend, should work. Thoughts?
