Question about 2000 Honda CB 500 S

1 Answer

There's a hole where my exhaust meets the silencer.

At the welded join near the start of the silencer can, there is a hole where it's rusted.

Can i get that welded? Or tapped up? Or do i need to buy a new silencer? If so ... where from?

Silencer problem xcd 135

Not really. Likely the ceramic catalytic converter element has broken loose. If you get a blockage, you'll fry your exhaust valves, maybe hole a piston. Replace it.

I have an 04yz450f and there is a slight exhaust leak where the mufflet meets the headers, will welding the muffler to the headers cause any issues? also would this be a reason why the bike has problems...

Just get a new gasket for the exhaust connection. Welding would be ugly, cause the area to rust quickly and lower the value of the bike when you sell it. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_98.gif

Where is the restictor washer located in the exaust of a Yamaha PW50? Disregard the YZ125!

It is in the exhaust where it bolts to the barrel. most dealers remove them before sale. it reduces the exhaust to about a 10mm hole

Which engine oil to be used for Bajaj CT-100? also due to rust my bike's silencer is having holes,will that cause problems?

Any major brand of motor oil is fine. Use 30 weight oil. Other than being noisy, the rusted silencer should not be a problem.

Pin hole in silencer

If you are not too worried about looks, a small self tapping automotive screw will plug the hole.

But the hole, if not caused by crash rash, will likely be rusting from the inside out. Welding a repair in this case would be futile. A larger section would have to be covered, making for a very unsightly repair.

Better to replace when practicable.

How do you replace the exhaust downpipes on a ZZR600

Well, the hole can be welded using a new half piece pipe if the rest are good, else it is an easy job for a muffler shop to do it, but it is your call.

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!
