I know this may sound rather stupid but my father has bought a brand new bike and he only intend to use it on our farm. Now the trouble is that neighbours complaint about the noise from the bike and we have asked the dealer if it was possible to get a more quieter exhaust, but he just said that you only were able to get exhausts that increase noise. So what we need is a exhaust which is less noisy (The standard one is direct flow, or what you call it) and one that doesn't sacrifice too much of the power. You can hear it miles away I love it, but my father tells me to only put a maximum of half throttle when I ride it, which is a little boring Can you help me ? , As for a quieter exhaust for your bike, your dealer wasn't very knowledgeable on the subject. While most aftermarket exhausts do increase noise, there are some to help decrease as well, without saraficing power. I can think of a couple over here in the US, but I'm not sure if you get many distributors for our stuff over there. There's also a European exhaust manufacturer that comes to mind, which is Leo Vince. And four-stroke exhausts aren't exactly cheap. Some ones that you could look into are: -FMF Powercore IV Q2 (around 96db) *slip-on* -Pro Circuit Type 496 (I'm not sure around what db level this is, but I know that the body is longer and it uses a special packing to help reduce noise) *slip-on* -Leo Vince X3 (every leo vince exhaust includes inserts for 99 and 96db, and also a spark arrestor) *full exhaust*,,,

you might consider the fuel mixture being too rich and that excess gas is getting into the exhaust and exploding there; it could also be that the exhaust valves in your engine are not closing all the way and excess gas is pouring into the exhaust, last is timing...if it is off, the exhaust valve will be off cycle too and might do the same thing...Check it out!

Hello, I'm installing new Thunderheader 2 - 1 exhaust pipes on my 2001 Fatboy. I need to know the torque specs on the bolts. Thanks!

Nuts (cylinder studs) - 60-80 inch pounds.
Nuts exhaust support tubes to frame - 19 foot pounds
Muffler support nuts - 19 foot pounds

Keep in mind that these torque values are for original stock equipment and may not be correct for your aftermarket parts applications. Use you common sense when installing the exhaust system. If a bolt looks and acts like it won't withstand the torque, don't try to apply it. People have been working on Harleys for years without the benefit of a torque wrench. It's not rocket science.

Good Luck

Hello I have a suzuki gs 400 ,timing good compression good new battery carbs have new floats ,needles and diaphragms it idles well but when on the road over 3000 rpm the bike has no power and...

The exhaust system may be the problem. Old mufflers will corrode internally and will sometimes collapse internally. This can restrict the exhaust gasses causing back pressure at the exhaust port. The engine can not get rid of the burned fuel, it can't breathe. Disconnect the exhaust system and go for a quick ride down the street. That should tell the story. The only other things that would cause the problem are bad valves, restricted fuel flow, partially plugged main jets, dirty air cleaner, bad spark plugs, bad ignition points / condenser, and the spark advance not working properly. Babbitt's has all the ignition parts except the spark advance (governor). Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Power seems to run out early running through the gears and there is a hollow sound in the exhaust at the end

Hello...from your comment it sounds like your bike needs a valve adjustment. The "hollow" sound in the exhaust and the powerband loss is usually a good indication of this. Have you had them adjusted lately? This first adjustment should be done at 5000 miles and then every 7500 miles there after.
The settings are:
Intake .003 - .005
Exhaust .007 - .009
Always set valves on a COLD engine.

I hope this helps...good luck with your bike.

If I do full headers and exhaust on my 08 Suzuki gsxr 600, do I need to do additional upgrades


Yes, your carbs will have to be tuned to your exhaust - this, usually, means upgrading the needles/seats in your carbs. I bought a Cobra exhaust system for my Suzuki (earlier model) and it came with the upgrade kit for my carbs.

Some people are happy adjusting the jets out further and living with poor fuel mileage, fouling plugs and lousy performance.

Do some research by calling your parts dealer and ask them if they have the carb kit for the exhaust you are wanting to buy. I use one of two online dealers; Bike Bandit or Old Bike Barn

Hope this helps. If you find this information useful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

Hello my bike is not starting very well, always

you might find one of two things,the carbureetors need cleaning out and rebalancing and is quite likely that the points are out of adjustment,the points on this model and most of the xs650 were critical in getteing right,i think you have a combination of a couple of small problems but get these two things sorted out and the bike should go a lot better
