I replaced the exhaust on my 2011 CBR125R (with CBR150R engine) recently. The stock exhaust was rusting and a friend welded it together in a spot where it started to leak near the flange a couple of years ago. I decided that I wanted a higher quality exhaust and my only requirements were that it be relatively quiet and well constructed, and I didn't want to have to re-pack the muffler every few years. I suppose I also didn't want to lose low-end power like my experience with other full exhausts in the past either. If it performed as well as stock - I'd be happy.
I had a musarri on my 250. To fix the backfiring I cut the end off of a colgate toothbrush and jammed in the hose on the side, problem solved.Haha! just saw this thread. I threw on a Masurri exhaust, cheap and pretty. Came out perfect, good looking and all.
I noticed some backfire if i shifted and kept the rpms higher than usual.. wasn't sure if it was really this or my head playing games... but I try and reproduce the sound whenever I shift.. it's dope!
My understanding is that the exhaust is pointing away from the direction you're travelling, so loud pipes are moot point.My BMW is loud as hell. Full Termignonl.With good reason. The avg Thai driver is in koo koo land when behind the wheel. If they don't see me. They will sure as hell hear me.
Not true. Sure it's louder behind the exhaust, but sound waves travel out in all directions. Unless you're traveling faster than the speed of sound, the noise will proceed you. You still hear trains coming, trucks approaching, and loud muscle cars even if you're not standing behind them.My understanding is that the exhaust is pointing away from the direction you're travelling, so loud pipes are moot point.
