after market exhausts

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by Drew, Jul 21, 2006.

  1. with al the concern over the volume of after market pipes and such like, is there a way at all you can tell before installing one if it gonna be too loud??

    i was thinking that the price of some of these upgrades is quite substantial and to find it is too loud/illegal AFTER buying it would be a right royal PITA.

    also what need to be considered to fit an aftermarket exhaust to a bike thatit is not made for. ie older bike and new 'zorst? Assuming the bike has carbies.


  2. If you specify it has to be legal then you have some recourse on the supplier if it turns out not to be.

    Exhausts aren't usually generic, they are normally designed with that specific model in mind. You may need to rejet your carbies or re-chip your EFI bike though (in fact it's usual that you need to do that).
  3. ok just saw some nice pics of a afterarket job on an older bike.....


    its an srx250.... (with disc brake mod as well) not sure of the point on a 250 single though
