Exhaust modifications

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by Marick, Apr 3, 2013.

  1. Hey,

    I'm interested in converting a VTR250 that Ive got a home into a project bike and Ive designed how I want the bike to look and sourced parts for a completely new design. When it comes to the muffler Im more out of my league than usual...I know nothing about what can and cannot be done.

    In short I want to achieve a certain look, but Im not trying to gain performance. I want to replace the existing stock muffler with something a lot more 'classic'. Am I able to just whack on any slipon muffler that will fit or do I need to actually consider how the muffler will affect the engines performance? I know this sounds like a completely newbish thing to ask and Im prepared to start researching but Id love to hear any advice beforehand.
