Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
Hi guys:-)
So the BMF is coming up next weekend and im heading up there to buy a new exhaust. Unsure on the brand atm. Anyway, I was looking over the whole exhaust system today, and im abit confused. To me it seems like I couldnt just buy an end can and be done with it... I need to buy the can with that large exhahst link pipe. Cant explain it.
Basically how would i swap my 2000 s exhaust (standard) for a new can. Is it a simple swap or any cutting involved??

The link pipe isnt a simple pipe, it goes into the back of the engine. Im at a total loss???

What bike? If it's an SV650 then you need to cut the original.

Yeah i ride a 2000 sv650s. Everything is standard and i want to change just the end can. Give it some style and some sound:-)
Where would i need to cut it?

You need to cut the pipe, and then reconnect it with the link pipe supplied with the end can, if it needs one.

The link pipe is sometimes needed to get the correct angle for the new exhaust hanger, or if the end can has a different diameter connecting pipe

You'll cut the OEM exhaust somewhere between the pillion footrest and the riders footrest usually

Okay i think ill need to get some tools in hahs.
Can you recommend any exhausts that are not to expensive to buy new, and are nit ti loud?

The link pipes that come with the end cans, do they slip straight on or are some a different size?

I think its usually 50mm further back than the weld you can see before the end can.

This may vary depending on brand, mines a beowulf if that helps

same size to fit the cut exhaust and then connect to the can. usually 52mm if I remember correctly.

Fuel cans are well made and quiet. I've got one

They were giving the Org discount on cans

Also you could give them a call to see if they have any seconds, with slight manufacturing faults

but beowolf also make nice cans

Re: aftermarket exhaust swap?
 
A Fuel can was a good contender, i have to admit. Its either do this at a small cost, or go all out and buy a full system:-)

otaylor38 11-05-13 10:25 PM

Re: aftermarket exhaust swap?
 
I guess youll just have to ask yourself if the cost of a full system is worth the money for the amount of gain you get. I decided on a slip on as its only for road use for abit of a tastier sound haha.

Anyone know how big the performance benefits are for a full system? M4 etc?

Go for the fuel, tasty exhaust. A nice noise with baffle in, plenty of meat with it out.

Am soon to be cutting the exhaust on my 2000 curvy.
I have a link pipe and end can.
Whats the diamiter of the standard exhaust?
Where do I cut and how far from the standard end can do I go?
(roughly will do,i have a "bike-it" link pipe and have a renegade end can)

These are the instructions that came with my beowulf end can and link pipe. When cutting, ensure you cover the bike if you are doing it whilst the exhaust is still attached. Use a steel cutting blade (couple of quid from homebase). I remember the diameter, will check later if I can.

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
Hey thanks, thats going to be a help. 50mm from the weld, I can do that.
I think I will roughly measure the Renegade end can I have and the link pipe first before cutting anything.

SV Shaun 26-05-13 07:43 PM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
No worries. It helped me cut mine. Dont do what I did thou, I cut ryt through and made the slightest mark on my swingarm
Not easily visable but its there.
The sound you get from a simple end can is amazing. Take the baffle out and oh my god:-)

Knobby 26-05-13 08:27 PM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
I measured the Renegade can I have. Only roughly with a tape measure and about 54-55mm across.
Its an oval and doesn't have a removable baffle. Usually Renegade make loud cans but this one was cheap as its got a little ding in it. The link pipe I have flares to meet the standard pipe.
Whats the standard pipe measure?
(2000 SY curvy)

The picture shows how much pipe was left attached to the original can. Ill measure the width iof the pipe when I get up haha.

SV Shaun 27-05-13 06:32 PM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
I just measured the diameter of the original pipe, and mine Is cumin in at 55mm
Should be the same on yours providing its standard.

I have a full M4 system which came in at about 750 fitted and dyno-ed. I didn't need a Power Commander as the shop had the software to play with the Suzuki ECU. The dyno bloke managed to get an extra 10 BHP for me but that was from a lowish 65BHP starting point. Possibly helps that the dyno bloke has been racing and tweaking SVs for some years now...

Others have cast doubt on the gains which is fair enough. It seems like a lot to me too!

On the road the bike feels a lot more lively everywhere but it is a trifle loud. M4 build quality is up there and I like the look of the thing. I'd recommend them whole-heartedly!

I have decided that I will get the mechanic I use to cut and fit the end can I have after the MOT.
Its due on my bike this month so will get him to MOT the bike then fit the end can.

SV Shaun 02-06-13 10:31 PM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
I would say do it yourself as it doesnt take a huge amount of work. Saves money In labour fees too.

Knobby 03-06-13 05:58 AM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
I was thinking that but he's got other jobs to do anyway, changing the forks and front discs and a mini service.

SV Shaun 03-06-13 06:52 AM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
Ahh okay. You swappin your forks then? If so are you gettin gsxr forks?

Knobby 03-06-13 06:51 PM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
Yes need to change forks on My bike.
This is because the right hand one leaks badly due to the fact sombody has damaged the chrome and its got all sorts of marks in it which means of course it ****es out oil.
I have a later curvy set which have good chrome and nice new seals with medium weight oil in ready to fit.

SV Shaun 03-06-13 10:31 PM

Re: Which exhaust can, where to cut? Curvy.
 
Ahh not so good. Im after a new set for mine as they have corrosion and looks s***. Im doin everything to combat it with no joy.
