Added a 96 4th gen to keep 91 company in garage,.... Stock silencer that has been gutted. Have read just about every post on topic and still in dark. I will post a couple of pics of existing with back cap removed. I am 3rd owner. Work was done cleanly by 1st. Cap is retained by 3 stainless Allen head screws. One pipe seems to have been removed and I assume there was a plate at tail with exit port that has been cut. My goal would be to modify to achieve DB somewhere between this gutted can and stock. Currently this must be acting a total straight pipe as what is left has no affect. My plan would be to remove what is left, install a perforated tube and pack. I am thinking of a front space to allow expansion. This would be a disk with OD equal to ID of can, with 2" center hole, set back 5" from front. Perf tube into that and carry to tail. Use tail cap to center and hold all pushed to front. ? - Can the entire existing inner perf sleeve be removed by drilling/grinding the 3 rivets that are directly behind the rivets that secured the rear cap? If I go with a 2" center perf tube that will be packed then this sleeve is just weight,... Any thoughts, info greatly appreciated! Any science in layman's terms?
Hi Guys and Gals, So spoke to my nearest Honda motorcycle dealer Rick Gills Motorcycles and Paul from their parts and service was very helpful. Turns out my bike hasn't had the recall work carried out as shown by a lack of punch/stamp below the J on the head stock VIN stamp. As shown below. There should be a dot punched/stamped there below the J if the recall work has been carried out. So if any of the Aussie 6th geners are reading that's what to check if you have a bike with a VIN between JH2RC46U*2M400005 to JH2RC46U*5M700241. (Don't know if the mark is standard across the world/regions). So the part(s) have been ordered and I'll get a call in a week or 2 to book it in for the work. On the exhaust front I got some great feedback (for once ) with Gumtree. A couple of interstate riders willing to help out but shipping would have defeated the purpose of keeping the cost down. Ended up getting a pair off of a great bloke named Simon locally on Monday for a 100 buckaroos. Local exhaust shop said $25 a side to weld the ends back on so I got to it last night as shown. I marked approximately 6mm in from the centre of the weld to cut with the hack saw. Sorry about the photo quality. A bit of persuasion and BFI and I got it out.. Got the other side done and called it a night. In total it took about 1 hour and a half and a few beers. I dropped the cans off at the exhaust shop this morning, as they are flat out and my job is no worth much to them it could take a day or 2. I'll be annoyed if I can't try them by the weekend. I'll try to get some audio recording as well to put up. Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Cheers.
