A Worthwhile Change
Looking at your own motorcycle, you might be wondering if it’s time to make a change. Taking a bike in for modifications is always tempting, but usually a bit too pricey for most owners - especially if it was a recent purchase. The most irksome problem is usually the muffler, as the standard stock pipes are not the ones that anyone really wants. If you are considering a slip-on motorcycle muffler but have never made a modification yourself, there may be less of an issue than you think. A slip-on motorcycle muffler can improve the styling of your ride, and also reduces the weight. For some it can even provide greater horsepower.
The Purpose of the Switch
A slip-on motorcycle muffler will function much like the original stock product the manufacturer installed, with a few important differences. Both the original and the slip-on motorcycle muffler do the same job of directing the exhaust gases away from you as you ride. The difference is in how the two muffles are typically built. The stock muffler will have chambers and baffles which lower engine noise, and unfortunately also reduce the flow of exhaust as well. The slip offers greater flow, more engine noise, and helps to pull fresh air and fuel into the motor. This allows the motorcycle to generate even more power.
Don’t Be Fooled
Some make the mistake of believing that any slip-on motorcycle muffler will automatically create more horsepower, but this is not the case. Check with the manufacturer or dealer and you will often find that in order to see improved power, you will still need to make sure the air and fuel intake is increased to compensate for the increase of the out take of exhaust. This can actually result in a loss of power. When adding a new motorcycle muffler, it is a good plan to also add a fuel injection controller or carburetor jet kit to allow for a better mixture of air to fuel, which can generate more power.
The Real Benefits
If the other issues are resolved at the same time, you can maximize the flow coming from the exhaust, which will give the motorcycle more power. At the same time, the reduced weight on the motorcycle from the standard product to the new slip-on motorcycle muffler translates to less drag on the bike.
Making the Move
It’s possible to make the move to a slip-on motorcycle muffler purchased straight from the shelf, or you can also look for a custom piece. Depending on the quality and materials, this can be cost effective. Stainless Ride, which specializes in high quality stainless parts, is an alternative that offers parts that have a longer life expectancy under even tough road conditions. A better, more efficient ride is possible by simply making a few changes, like a new muffler on the motorcycle you love.
Key Features of the Right Bike Exhaust
There’s a reason why mufflers such as the Triumph Speedmaster Exhaust are so popular. A good muffler is more than just an extension of a bike. It plays a significant role in the functionality and lifespan of your motor bike. Unfortunately, finding the right muffler isn’t easy. There are hundreds of different OEM and customized options available. If you’re in the market for a muffler, the following are some of the vital factors that you need to consider.
Sound: Bikes aren’t all the same. There’s an obvious difference between riding a motor bike that sounds like its wheezing and one with the deep fluid sound of power. You can improve the way your bike sounds with the right mufflers. High quality mufflers are designed to create rich sounds that are not too distracting when you ride. If you’re looking for a great response when you drive buy, look for exhausts that provide such options.
Durability: Don’t just settle for any muffler. Look for machine parts that are designed to stand the test of time. Our Triumph Speedmaster Exhaust is a popular favorite because of how durable it is. All our mufflers are constructed out of high quality stainless steel which is particularly resistant to corrosion. Unlike chrome plated mufflers, stainless steel mufflers are far less likely to peel or crack because the exterior, interior and core are all made from the same resilient material.
Ease of Use: When it comes in to installing an exhaust, some people appreciate the prospect of a challenge while others don’t. There’s nothing wrong with either option but it’s bound to affect your decision. If you have no technical experience, look for mufflers that are fairly easy to install. Slip-on parts are a great option since these will not require that you make any other change to the bike. You should also pay attention to the weight of the muffler. Look for options that are not too heavy.
Performance: Adding the right muffler can increase the performance of your bikes. Mufflers such as the Triumph Speedmaster Exhaust have been known to add an extra 5-10 hp to a bike’s performance. Finely crafted mufflers are also designed to improve your bike’s mid-range torque as well as the gain in throttle response which is great when you’re out on the open road.
Finish: Finally, you may want to consider the construction and finish of the exhaust. Very few will challenge the fact that Triumph Speedmaster Exhaust is a thing of beauty. It’s finely polished surface splashes of different hues of light depending on the time of the day. More importantly, because it is highly resistant to corrosion, mufflers of this nature are able to retain their beauty for many years with little maintenance. For the best results, look for mufflers that boast similar craftsmanship.
