CBR125R Exhaust

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' at netrider.net.au started by Levih, Jun 29, 2009.

  1. Hey guys,

    Just wondering about a bit of a performance boost with a new exhaust.



    + I want it to sound like its a bike and not a lawn mower engine strapped to a push bike :p

    What would you recommend for an upgrade from a stock exhaust?

    Cheers,

    Levi.

  2. As for sound, I have heard one with a can, imagine yourself locked in a big tin silo. Now take your forearm and do a big "raspberry" on it. This is in effect what the bike will sound like. A wet fart in a tincan.

    As for performance, meh, spend it on the LED indicators, you will probably gain more from the lower voltage draw.

  3. Zilly on these boards upgraded her exhaust with a Micron, very different sound, I've no idea if it helped with power but she's upgraded now.

  4. Yeah I'm not to worried about the performance, you can only milk 125cc to a point.

    But yeah i would like a nice sounding exhaust so cars can actually be aware that theres a bike around.

    Seeing im pritty new to this what brand/models would you recommend?

  5. Apply to exhaust. I cannot see how it will sound any worse than a proper "exhaust" for your "bike".

  6. Save your cash, exhausts are not cheap and you won't gain much if anything (sound or "performance") on a cbr125.

  8. I have a Megacycle exhaust on my 150. It was expensive but man is it sweet sounding :LOL:

  9. A few Repsol stickers will add more power than an aftermarket exhaust.

  10. This one you can tune to your particular bike for optimum performance.

    (Yeah I ride a 150 - I have one too!)

    Edit: And my bike comes standard with Repsol stickers - no wonder I'm fast :woot:

  12. I've heard some with an exhaust and they're not too bad, interesting character in tone - kind of like ptwin but not quite...
