What is the best exhaust for a motorcycle?
There is no real best but one of the most well-known and highest quality exhaust manufacturers is Akrapovic. They’re used by many of the top motorcycle racing teams as the exhausts are developed specifically for each model of motorbike, meaning it helps the bike make more power.
What exhaust system sounds the best?
This is completely subjective. Each brand of exhaust sounds different and it also depends on the type of engine and the type of sound you like. Some bikers like their exhausts to be quiet, others prefer them loud.
Are slip-on exhausts universal?
No. While the slip-on exhaust may fit onto the header pipe, it’s unlikely that it’ll bring out the best from the motorcycle’s engine, as exhausts create a certain amount of backpressure which helps the engine run properly. If this pressure is removed, the engine needs to be tuned or re-mapped to suit the exhaust.
What does an exhaust do for a motorcycle?
An exhaust keeps the engine noise down and also processes the exhaust gases to ensure they are less toxic and damaging to the environment. Fitting an aftermarket exhaust will probably result in the catalytic converter having to be removed, which will cause more untreated exhaust gases to be released but it’ll also make the bike louder and allow the engine to produce more power as the gas will flow faster through the exhaust.
What is the best sounding motorcycle?
This is entirely subjective. A motorcycle’s sound is dictated by the number of cylinders the engine has, the engine firing order, the exhaust and many other factors. Most people closely associate the sound of a v-twin engine with that of the best motorcycle sound.
How can I make my motorcycle exhaust quieter?
If you have an original exhaust fitted there’s not much you can do. If you have a race exhaust, then you should be able to fit a baffle of a decibel reducer (also known as a dB killer) to reduce the noise from the exhaust.
Does exhaust wrap reduce noise motorcycle?
In many cases, exhaust wrap can help reduce the noise emitted from the motorcycle’s exhaust
How can I make my stock motorcycle exhaust louder?
You can drill through the baffles that are built into the exhaust. However a stock exhaust is expensive to replace, so if you damage it, you’re looking at a big bill to replace it. It’s a far better idea to fit an aftermarket exhaust which will be lighter, louder and help the engine produce more power.
Are aftermarket motorcycle exhausts illegal?
Some are, some aren’t. Your exhaust will need to have a BS AU 193a: 1990/T3 British Standard on it for it to be deemed road legal. IF you change your silencer for a non-road legal or race version, then you may fail your MOT.
Is an aftermarket exhaust bad for an engine?
An aftermarket exhaust will alter the airflow as the exhaust gases will be able to exit the system faster. This may mean your engine ends up running lean or possibly too rich if the ECU tries to compensate. It’s always a good idea to get the bike’s engine mapped to suit the exhaust.
What causes bluing on motorcycle exhaust pipes?
Exhausts get hot, very hot. This extreme heat causes the metal to change colour, most often a blue tint can be seen as a motorcycle exhaust ages, depending on the material it is made from. Titanium will almost always end up turning blue, as will a chrome finish.
