question of pros & CONS about a slip on
im sure theres probably been a post in the past about this but ill try anyway,,,,,,,,,,
as a few people know,,,, im manufacturing my own (akra imitation)slipon , 70% titanium.
now im wondering if the larger exhaust diameter will through any engine settings off on my bike (95 zx6R) or how much ,,,if any back fire will i have goin on?????????. this is just a little side project of my own and if any person/s has info that i should be aware of it would be greatly appreciated.
and hopfully when it turns out nice i'll post a pic..
Well... if you increase the diameter of the outlet too much and have simply a straight-through w/baffle can design, you may drop your backpressure too much.
Too much backpressure == bad
Too little backpressute == bad
My suggestion would be this: let me go measure the outlet of my Akrapovic for you, and you copy its dimensions, more or less. That way you get the advantage of their R&D (and I assure you that the size of the outlet / pipe / baffle / etc is carefully calculated) without having to pay for their work.
Let me know if you're interested and I'll haul out the tape measure.
its funny cause im actually using the front and rear titanium flanges from an akra slipon that a fellow gave to me, cause the muffler was written off in a crash.
so i got the inside diameter of the centre tubing at about a 1/4 inch in diameter larger than the output end so im gonna machine a sleeve to press on to the titanium flange inside and then i'll slide the perferated core stainless tube over the sleve and VOAAALA
so all and all i got the akra inlet at about 2" diameter then it goes into a 2.25" ss tube and then steps back down in diameter ,,,and the exhaust exits out of the stock akra outlet.
2" to 2.25" exits out the 2" diameter.
hummmmm,,,,, im wondering if thatll be fuk*d up or if it will work alright.
I wonder if it will sound the same? Are you going to get it packed by a shop and are there different types of packing? I Just put a Vance&Hines S4 slip on on my bike but I am now starting to wonder if I should have paid the difference for the Akrapovic pipe. It would have been a huge difference cause I got my brand new pipe for a hell of a deal! It is pretty loud and I do like the sound of the Akras. Is there anything that sounds like them for less money or anyone have a used one they want to sell or trade?
Hope your can works out. I am interested to hear. Maybe you should start a side business cause you can buy akra end caps from the manufacturer for dirt cheap.
On a related topic...... What is the diffrence in hp gaines between a slip on and a full system?
Does a slip on give anything other than a nice sound?
And if does and there is minimal difference betweent eh two, what is the advantage of a full system?
SHIT dude i didn't know that,,,,,,thats cool
do ya know if they sell the inside perferated tube for cheep,,,,,(how cheep)
ummmm, ya,,,,,ive been told by a few people that you can buy packing for slipons ,,,(two stroke or four stroke) apparently.
so i think i'll go to BK or R. motorsport to pick the packing up
i hope the tube i got works?????
