Weird Cans

Post by Guest on Fri 03 Feb 2012, 19:04

I sold the Akrapovic Evo system that has been on my bike since March, so today I refitted my standard RRW system. I made a weird silencer back in January to test some zorst theories and I fitted it today.
It's about 600mm long, 63 mm diameter with a 35mm perforated tube baffle. Currently packed with stainless wire wool. I know it looks odd , but bare with me, it will be modded over the coming days/weeks. Opinions greatly appreciated and orders taken , should you see summat you like.
So here is weird can 1;



Video to follow if I ever get it to upload!

Thought I'd start with the usual standard length can , but with an O/D approx the same as the link pipe, with a 35mm perforated tube baffle. It will get shorter and maybe fatter? It needs some more absorption material coz it's a bit loud!!!

Not in favour of usuing wire wool Alan this will either catch alight at some stage or rot with the amount of condensation. There are kevlar refill packs available for that purpose.

Well I was sent some proper silencing material by a very kind gentleman on another forum. So I packed the 250mm long by 35mm bore baffle , polished up the "silencer" and refitted it today. Whadya reckon;



Double click on the piccy to listen to video.

It ain't gonna get any quieter than this unless I fit a pre silencer under the engine. The standard exhaust system has a four into two into one which is about 48mm diameter welded to the linkpipe which is 61mm diameter. Not sure what goes on inside the link pipe, but there aint much silencing! Here's a coupla pix of the collector and link pipe;


So I will either redesign the link pipe with a silencer in it or fit a 4" diameter pre silencer and a serpentine link pipe, as fitted to late model Blades with aftermarket Yoshimura or Akrapovic silencers.
