So I installed the exhaust today. Seems like I am going to gave to get some of the exhaust silicone sealant because there is a exhaust leak coming from where the muffler meets the middle pipe. It isn't nearly as loud as I was expecting, but I think the way it currently sound is affected by the leak causing the air to be forced out the front and rear of the pipe. I will stop and get the exhaust sealant tomorrow after work.

I used a 45 degree exhaust elbow. with a 1.75" OD on one side and 1.75" ID on the other. I then cut slits on the ID side so that it could be clamped down.
The pipe coming out of tha Catalytic converter is slightly smaller so I used an exhaust reducer sleeve to make it fit firmly.

Looks good!

Can we assume there'll be a video/audio clip once you get the leak sealed up?

I am assuming this was a universal slip on? Not bike specific? I'd like to get a slip on, but don't wanna do all the monkey'ing around to get it to fit properly, lol. Call me lazy. haha

It looks good!

But... It also looks kinda.. puny?
It's my opinion, ofc, it just would have looked sooo much better if it was dual.


Be adviced kids, the following image is pure p*rn!
That looks sweet as f. Should be black thou, ofc.

But yeah.. Guess we all gotta wait a while before something like this might be an option for us elsewhere in the world away from Thailand.

DAMM! I want that. Or even just the floor pegs be nice. But stock exhaust pretty sure be in the way, but that looks sweet. lol. But looks custom, can't see if the pipes are secured in place by bracket, but assume they are.

Those floor boards are the standard Honda add on for this bike. They are not released in the USA yet.

Sounds good Shorty, better than I expected actually. What was the effect on performance? Is the computer able to adjust for it, or will you have to tweak anything?

Hard to say. It started raining right after I took the video so I didn't get much riding time in. Once the weather clears up in the next two days I will get some extended riding in and test it out. I am not looking for any gains, I am just hoping to not have any negative side affects.

Post cat shouldn't change the AFR?
I am hoping it doesn't, or at least doesn't change it enough where I have an issue.

It actually still isn't really loud, which is a good thing. I was expecting to have to mod the exhaust to add more baffling but it is still pretty quiet with a bit deeper sound.

Me and you both...
Ain't too sure either what it is exactly, if it's custom, or pay and plug and play.
What I do "know" thou, at least pretty sure about, is that something like this will hit the market sooner or later, so we'll just have to wait! Sadly... So much waiting....

Didn't find any other pictures of it either, sadly..
Found other similar ones thou, but not as pretty as this one.

Yea I like the exhaust you posted, though Chrome is not my thing I would prefer it Black. Couple things about it though.
1. It is a complete straight pipe. No muffler, No Cat.
2. I don't see the exhaust joining at any point so I am not sure where they were put the sensor. On our bike it goes right before the cat after the exhaust has joined together.
3. Though it won't matter to most people, this exhaust is illegal, but in its defense pretty much every exhaust you will get will be so.
4. I know some of the people who got the early exhausts from thailand had issues because there was no back pressure at them at all and the bikes ran really crappy, on the facebook group a lot of people changed back to stock.
5. Obviously you can't tell from the picture, but I wonder how loud that is? With no cat and no actual muffler I bet it screams. I want to hear it though I bet it sounds awesome.

Finally 6. This isn't really anything special, you should be able to go to any exhaust shop and have them fabricate an exhaust like that. Likely cheaper than what TwoBros is charging for their slip on.

Are there any videos of it with sound?

So I got some extended riding in today so here are my results.

Before I got rid of the leak the bike was not running great. It kept sounding like it was going to backfire. And while I couldn't really feel a change in speed, it did feel like the bike was Hiccuping if that makes sense.

After fixing leak.
After I used the exhaust sealant and got it running right a lot changed.
1. The sound was deeper, you can hear the difference just by listening to my video clips.
2. The bike is still not loud, which is a good thing. It is a little bit louder than stock but by no means obnoxious where it will annoy neighbors. I am still the quietest bike on my street by far. But it sounds better than stock in my opionion. Stock sounded like a wind up toy lol, this at least sounds like a bike.
3. Performance did not change much if at all, which is fine because I wasn't looking to gain anything. In first through third gear it actually felt better. Though that could very possibly be a placebo from the exhaust sound. At highway speed I could not tell any difference than stock.

Next step, either tomorrow or friday I will be doing an exhaust wrap. I will post pics up once it is done, but may take a bit since to do it right I will have to remove the exhause, and then spray it with high temp silicone spray so that the wrap does not change from black to white.

I've never really understood the whole exhaust bandage wrap. What is it good for?
