    I don't think so. No moving parts.

    Yeah but you could wash it out with solvent.

    What would a good solvent be? Would denatured alcohol be sufficient?

    You could use denatured no problem... Also rinsing it with fresh fuel won't hurt it either...

    Plug the stinger put some fuel or Denatured Alcohol in it, plug the other side,,, shake well, let it sit for 20 minutes, shake again, rinse. I do this about every 5 gallons..

    In all actuality the pipes should perform better with age as they tend to hold heat better and a hotter pipe = more torque in most cases.

    Is it normal for these pipes to keep getting louder?

    Humm,,, never noticed it..... The only thing that's different from when new is they now have an coil coating cooked into the metal which definitely helps them retain heat better,,, that's a good thing with 2 strokes...
