Is it normal for my downpipes to glow?

The downpipes are made of a single skin of stainless steel and are quite short, so any heat build-up is quite concentrated and uninsulated ...

Beowulf exhausts

Adam Walker, 21 May 2012 12:42

I had a Suzuki SV650 with a stubby Beowulf stainless steel exhaust which sounded great. So when I got my Aprilia Tuono 1000 I wasted no time in giving the people at Beowulf a call. They were very helpful in telling me to avoid the carbon cans (as the Aprilia would blow them up) and stick to the steel ones. I ordered ...

Pipe Werx Stainless Steel Oval exhausts

Dan Aspel, 02 November 2011 12:29

Pipe Werx Stainless Steel Oval exhausts, £330 Time used: One month What’s good: The finish is excellent – including the carved “X” design in the removable baffle – and the sound is pleasingly raw and brash on my Street Triple. With the baffles out they’re viciously loud, with an electrifying over-run crackle. They’re extremely lightweight compared to the stock cans ...

Exhaust review: Arrow exhaust for Moto Guzzi V7 Classic

John Westlake, 27 June 2011 14:31

Arrow exhaust for Moto Guzzi V7 Classic, £857Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: They look a darn site better than the originals – the titanium finish is superb, the quality is top notch, and their simple styling matches the bike. What’s not: They’re so quiet. Having lived with Ducatis for the last few years I’ve become accustomed to the ear-bleeding ...

Remus GP Revolution silencer

Andy Downes, 22 June 2011 11:27

Remus GP Revolution silencer, £342 Miles covered/time: 850/six months What’s good: This satin black Remus GP Revolution end can weighs less than half the standard Honda CBR600F-W exhaust it replaces, sounds fruitier but remains road legal, looks better and needs no mucking about with the jetting in the carburettors. My main reasons for fitting the pipe were so I could make ...

Ped Baker, 14 June 2011 12:27

Sandy Bike Spares Stainless steel downpipes for 1999 Honda CBR600FX, £153.26 Miles covered/time: 200/one month What’s good: £150 for a set of four-into-one stainless exhaust downpipes is an absolute bargain, £100 cheaper than similar pipes from Motad. These UK-made pipes are well made from thick gauge tubing, bolt on as neatly and as easily as the original Honda pipes and even ...

Exhaust review: SuperTrapp Superlight Stainless exhaust

Simon Relph, 08 April 2011 14:00

SuperTrapp Superlight Stainless exhaust, £220Miles covered/time: 1450/three months What’s good: When I wanted to replace the silencer on my BMW R100R I discovered there is a very limited range of aftermarket products available. But SuperTrapp produce a range of universal silencers to suit most bikes. The only fiddle was getting a piece of link pipe made up to go between ...

What's causing NC24's backfire?

Anonymous, 22 March 2011 14:05

Q. I’ve got a 1987 Honda NC24 and I’m trying to decide if the problem is loose tappets or a holed exhaust manifold. The symptoms are: backfiring on deceleration, however this has been severely reduced when I found a small crack where the collector box attaches to the end pipe. Now it will only backfire if I nail it down ...

Product review: Motad exhaust system

Steve Farrell, 10 November 2010 13:09

Motad exhaust system, £296 Miles covered/time: Seven months/1000 miles What’s good? A full stainless exhaust system for under £300? What’s not to like? Motad cater for a wide range of bikes including many older models like my Kawasaki GPZ550, in sympathetic no-nonsense styling. It looks and sounds vastly better than the standard boring black system and it won’t rot. It ...
