You will need to change main jets and adjust carbs because of the back pressure change. Make sure the straight pipes are at least 24 inches long past the head connections or you can burn your valves.

SOURCE: 2009 triumph thruxton still popping even with power commander installed with d&d exhaust

Hi,I just had my 2011 EFI Thruxton serviced.The mechanic I used is an ace with Triumphs and he recommended removing the air injection which he went ahead and did for me.I told him that the Triumph dealer said this should not be done as it may damage the engine.He told me this was not the case .The air injection is there to make un-burnt fuel in the system ignite in the headers.This is what causes the bluing of the headers and over the long term will burn out the valves.Since he made the modification there is no more back-firing ,he also tunned and mapped the standard ccu for me and has got it within 0.5% of the power commanders 'claimed performance specs.A cheap quick fix.Hope this helps.

What will cause bluing on front exhaust pipe on 2003 yamaha v-star 1100


Ronald, All stock single wall pipes will blue some time or another. A big cause of Bluing is a badly tuned bike, burning rich or lean putting more heat into pipe.
There are polishes available to remove the Bluing, and some people on forums, they suggest to remove and with high heat paint, put several coats inside of chrome pipes.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

98 Chevy Silverado Exhaust


go for deep and loud and the road department will love you for the extra revenue you will be providing with the fines
next the fuel companies will be loving you as well because deep and loud is poor performance and that means extra profits for them
you are replacing an exhaust system but leaving the stock headers on and not putting extractors on
what you need to do is go up 1/2" in pipe size, refit cat converters ( gets you past the smog tests), remove any unnecessary bends and fit the correct muffler
best if you rethink what you want and talk with an exhaust shop specialist as to what you need to get performance , pass the regulations , get economy and still come up with a lower frequency noise
one thing that you haven't considered is this fact ---
deep and loud contribute to driver drowsiness on trips and that makes you loose awareness and fall asleep at the wheel

Yes. take it to a Triumph dealer and get them to install the correct ECU map. They are very good at helping in this way. You didn't really need a power commander as Triumph fit a reprogrammable ECU for just this reason.

Diragram on how to change the water pump on a 1995 z24 cavalier 2.3


Check this procedure, according with the repair guide for...

2.3L and 2.4L Engines
(see Figure 9)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
  2. Detach the oxygen sensor connector.
  3. Properly drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. Remove the heater hose from the thermostat housing for more complete coolant drain.
  4. Remove upper exhaust manifold heat shield.
  5. Remove the bolt that attaches the exhaust manifold brace to the manifold.
  6. Remove the lower exhaust manifold heat shield.
  7. Break loose the manifold to exhaust pipe spring loaded bolts using a 13mm box wrench.
  8. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
It is necessary to relieve the spring pressure from 1 bolt prior to removing the second bolt. If the spring pressure is not relieved, it will cause the exhaust pipe to twist and bind up the bolt as it is removed.
  1. Unfasten the two radiator outlet pipe-to-water pump cover bolts.
  2. Remove the manifold to exhaust pipe bolts from the exhaust pipe flange as follows:
    1. Unscrew either bolt clockwise 4 turns.
    2. Remove the other bolt.
    3. Remove the first bolt.
On the 2.4L engines, DO NOT rotate the flex coupling more than 4° or damage may occur.Pull down and back on the exhaust pipe to disengage it from the exhaust manifold bolts.
  1. Remove the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan and transaxle. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the exhaust manifold brace. Leave the lower radiator hose attached and pull down on the outlet pipe to remove it from the water pump. Leave the radiator outlet pipe hang.
  2. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  3. Unfasten the exhaust manifold-to-cylinder head retaining nuts, then remove the exhaust manifold, seals and gaskets.
  4. For the 2.4L engine, remove the front timing chain cover and the chain tensioner. For details, please refer to the procedure located later in this section.
  5. Unfasten the water pump-to-cylinder block bolts. Remove the water pump-to-timing chain housing nuts. Remove the water pump and cover mounting bolts and nuts. Remove the water pump and cover as an assembly, then separate the two pieces.

Fig. 9: Water pump and cover mounting - 2.3L and 2.4L engines (click over image for zoom)

To install:

  1. Thoroughly clean and dry all mounting surfaces, bolts and bolt holes. Using a new gasket, install the water pump to the cover and tighten the bolts finger-tight.
  2. Lubricate the splines of the water pump with clean grease and install the assembly to the engine using new gaskets. Install the mounting bolts and nuts finger-tight.
  3. Lubricate the radiator outlet pipe O-ring with antifreeze and slid the pipe onto the water pump cover. Install the bolts finger-tight.
  4. With all gaps closed, tighten the bolts, in the following sequence, to the proper values:
    1. Pump assembly-to-chain housing nuts-19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
    2. Pump cover-to-pump assembly-106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    3. Cover-to-block, bottom bolt first-19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
    4. Radiator outlet pipe assembly-to-pump cover-125 inch lbs. (14 Nm).
  5. Using new gaskets, install the exhaust manifold. Make sure to following the tightening sequence and torque specifications given in the exhaust manifold procedure located in this section.
  6. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  7. Index the exhaust manifold bolts into the exhaust pipe flange.
  8. Connect the exhaust pipe to the manifold. Install the exhaust pipe flange bolts evenly and gradually to avoid binding. Turn the bolts in until fully seated.
  9. Connect the radiator outlet pipe to the transaxle and oil pan. Install the exhaust manifold brace, if removed.
  10. On the 2.4L engine, install the timing chain tensioner and front cover.
  11. Install the lower heat shield.
  12. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  13. Fasten the bolt that attaches the exhaust manifold brace to the manifold.
  14. Tighten the manifold-to-exhaust pipe nuts to specification.
  15. Install the upper heat shield.
  16. Attach the oxygen sensor connector.
  17. Fill the radiator with coolant until it comes out the heater hose outlet at the thermostat housing. Then connect the heater hose. Leave the radiator cap off.
  18. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine. Run the vehicle until the thermostat opens, fill the radiator and recovery tank to their proper levels, then turn the engine off.
  19. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

Hope helps; remember to rating this answer and leave a testimonial comment. Thank you for using FixYa.

I would like my vtx 1300 to be a little louder. can i drill a small hole in the back of the muffler to make it louder will this work any pros or cons please


Honda mufflers typically have several baffle walls You may need a drill 14 or more inches in length to punch through enough of these walls to make a noticeable difference. Changing the back pressure of the exhaust will also lean the mixture. This may cause a bad hesitation on take off. This will happen if you change the exhaust system also. To correct the hesitation you may need to install a jet kit on a carburetor model (about $100) or install a Power Commander on a fuel injected model (about $400 plus programming). In both cases your fuel economy will go down. Your stock system has a five year warranty, should not blue like an aftermarket pipe (unless you leave the choke on too long), and have a good long service life. Unfortunately there is no easy solution for your problem. Any aftermarket system will be way to loud (especially on the freeway) and drilling may not give you the desired sound you are looking for leaving you angry and frustrated. Consider a different option, One of the best sound options I have heard was a set of stock Harley pipes adapted to a Yamaha Virago 1100. Most Harley riders change out there exhaust systems before they even ride there bikes which should offer a cheap high quality system that can be adapted to your stock headers with common automotive adapter pipes and custom build it yourself supports (a simple modification of your stock pipe support/mounts). By not damaging your stock system you can always put it back on if you do not get the desired effect.

Loss of power with new exhaust


You didn't say if the new exhaust was the factory stock unit for your bike or an aftermarket pipe. The aftermarket pipes are generally not well manufactured. The factory pipes are well made but even they have internal flaws at times.

The flow of exhaust gasses is being held back by the baffles in the muffler. Some mufflers have an end baffle that can be removed from the end of the pipe. If one is present, remove it. This may help. Aside from that, return the new pipe and ask for a refund or replacement.

Stock pipe


You will see a lack of performance by removing the stock pipe and doing nothing else to counter the removal. Yes it will be much louder but it can also adversely affect everything in the motor from valving to spark plugs to a significant reduction in engine longevity. rather than outright removal have you looked into an aftermarket pipe? I agree that stock pipes can be a bit on the dull sounding side, but I would recommend staying away from drastic steps such as removing the whole can,,,
