Choosing The Right Aftermarket Motorcycle Exhaust System Makes a Difference.

Cruiser Exhaust SystemWhen choosing a motorcycle exhaust there are many choices in todays market. If you have a main stream motorcycle meaning something made by Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Harley Davidson, Ducati, Aprilia or Victory just to name a few of the top makers of bikes. Finding and aftermarket motorcycle exhaust will not be a problem. Some of your more popular manufacturers for pipes for these types of bikes are. Scorpion, Yoshimura, Muzzy, Bub Rinehart, Jardine, Cobra, Vance and Hines these are just some that come to mind but not nearly all.Full Race Sport Bike Exhaust System

So now how do you decide which motorcycle exhaust to get? Also do you need a full system or are slip-ons good enough to achieve your goal? In order to make the best choice on a set of pipes just ask yourself if you are looking to increase horse power, looks or exhaust tone or all 3 as well as dropping weight off the bike. Will the bike be used for the track or just on the street?

Sport Bike Slip OnsSlip-Ons for Sport Bikes:
Lets start of with the simplest thing to change out which is the mufflers which bikers call cans. This can easily be done with some slip-ons which basically involves removing the stock cans from the bike and slipping on the new muffler therefore the term Slip-ons. This modification will generally increase horse power and give the bike a more aggressive exhaust note. Replacing the stock cans with aftermarket performance ones will also generally drop 10+ pounds of the motorcycles weight. Making this change will require you to adjust the fuel to air mixture to compensate for the new system.

A Full Performance Exhaust Race Motorcycle Exhaust System:
This modification is the best as well as the most expensive one. Replacing your whole stock exhaust system with a race system will give you the most gains in horsepower as well as the most aggressive exhaust note and the maximum of weight removed from the bike. For sport bikes you will find many systems by Akrapovic, Jardine and Yoshimura makes some real nice performance systems to choose from. There are many more these are just a few that come to mind. This modification is a bit more involved since the pipes and mufflers have to be removed completely. You might decide to tackle it yourself if you are mechanically inclined, if not find a motorcycle shop to do the install for you. Either way you are going to have to remap your fuel injection system once these systems are on. So finding a competent wrench is going to be a must unless you know how to do it yourself.

Replacing the Pipes on a Cruiser:
On a cruiser bike slip-ons are not a choice. On a cruiser the muffler is one long piece of pipe therefore when you are looking to make this modification you are going to be looking at completely replacing the bike's pipes. This type of modification is pretty much the same as replacing the full system on a sport bike. You will need to remove the whole system and then have the bike's fuel injection system adjusted to compensate for the difference in back pressure which will make the bike lean out.

No matter what you ride and what type of motorcycle exhaust modification you are thinking of making there is a quality system available for your bike. It might be harder for some exotics but generally all motorcycles will have some sort of aftermarket performance system to choose from.
