Exhaust Does any one know if the V50 with 32 mm exhaust will take the later 35mm exhaust? If any one has a V50 set of pipes/silencers we could do with some for Nick's V50 mk 2 Cheers

I have had this issue before. The problem is that you don't have enough back pressure. which is basically how much pressure it takes for the exhaust to exit the pipe. what you would need to do is add baffling the plates and tubes in the end of the pipe to add back pressure.

Ive got a truimph bonneville t100 2008 exhust pipes tuening blue at the head and golden by the silences is this detremental?

It is 100% normal and caused by the exhaust heat. A pointer though; if you do any work to the bike and had touched the exhaust pipes, clean them thoroughly before running because you will end up with fingerprints on the pipes that will be extremely difficult if not impossible to remove. Safe riding.

My silencer is blowing between the silencer and the link pipe how can i repair it

Remove the silencer and clean up the down pipe and silencer ends. Use a liberal amount of exhaust repair paste and push the silencer back on. Refit the clamp that holds the pipes together and replace any perished rubberised band that may be used. Run the motor on idle for about 10 mins to harden the paste and the leave overnight. Recheck the clamp for tightness and hopefully all should be well with the world, the sun will be shining and you can go for a ride.

Purchaced a slip on exhaust. gp moto style from radiant cycles. can't seem to get the exaust to tighten to the header/down tube. could i be doing something wrong

hi, quite often i find people come to me with this problem, and the most obvious reason is that they clamp the pipe to high up, if your exhaust came with a supplied clamp, and the silencer has been manufactured with slots cut out where it fits onto original headers, place the clamp on the silencer but dont completely cover the slots, covering them will not alow you to tighten the silencer, remember you cant tighten up on a solid peice of pipe, you will have to leave about 3 or 4mm of the slot visible on the uper side of the clamp, the slot will soon seal up after rideing for a couple of weeks. hope this helps

To mitigate the exhaust Aquila 250

exaust silencers or 'mufflers' as we call them in the US could be purchased at a motorcycle parts supplier.measure the outside diameter of your exhaust pipes to determine the proper size ''slip on'' mufflers you need to buy & clamp onto pipes.if you can't find them locally,visit

Pulsar 150 - Some knocking after i got a service 3 days back...

It could be the exhaust baffles which are in the exhaust pipe tht have given away, you can remove the exhaust pipe assy and get it cut underneath and get the baffles electric welded..or rather spot welded and weld the exhaust back but the chrome will burn off and rust may thn take over ..or unless you paint tht area black( heat ressistant paint.),or better off is to replace the complete exhaust pipe assy.
Hope this helps!

Stock exhaust made louder.

my friend has the same bike and wanted to do the same but unfortunately the exhausts have a catalyst in them so if he had altered them they would fail the mot. best bet would be to buy an after-market slip on silencer etc. hope this helps

Dirtbike eahaust pipe comprison -which is best

I know there were a few different models: X440S only FMF Powercore aluminum silencer/stainless header combo E440/C440 standard header/silencer with midpipe attached (long can) (2 spark arrestors) S440 standard header/shorty silencer with seperate midpipe (1 spark arrestor) X440 standard header/silencer (NO spark arrestors) Just wondering whether anyone has ever done any hp tests between these. From my experience the X440 can would flow the best because of the lack of spark arrestors but I'm wondering how the FMF powercore compares? The FMF has shorter header runners leading to the merged portion so the shorter header should deliver more low end torque. Also do I have the S440 can info right, only 1 spark arrestor in the shorty?,The so-called S440 pipe did not have a separate midpipe. It had a fixed welded inlet, same as the longer can, and was full open. Also, I have a New 03 X440 here with the SAME exhaust, ...but another with a long and full-open version. So, you really cannot tie all exhaust versions to a particular model, since too many owners will get confused. Everybody would need to check their own machine to be sure. But if ANYBODY out there has a separate midpipe?, I'd really like to confirm wazzup -- Up until now, I have thought that the only ones around are from the small batch that I had found over in Holland. And, on just a few bikes that were assembled in Europe just prior to the bankruptcy. ,,,
