Question about 1984 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
Im interested in buying a 1983 honda shadow 750 and I really like the look of the exhaust pipes when its just one big pipe why is that only on some of the bikes and not on others?
Many factors go into the style of a bike.
Changing the exhaust is a major issue in regards to position of the current hardware and wiring. Designers at the time the bike is being developed determine position, size heat shielding etc. Local codes, restrictions and generally what sells today. Once the fabrication starts on a specific model it is rare that major changes like the exhaust system are allowed.
That is what after market exhaust pipes are for.
I for instance can't stand the one large big pipe.
Dual pipes on each side have a better sound and seem to balance the bike.
But that is only my opinion and everyone has one. :)
Keep in mind, There is no dumb question. Only the one not asked. :)
Have a great day!
