Burgman exhaust innards
« on: September 18, 2017, 06:13:59 AM »
Howzit,

My Burgie has 70k+ km. I want to lighten the exhaust. Does anyone have photos of the inside or has anyone done a decat and can share details.

Are there reasonably prices slipons?

"Lighten", as in less kilograms?

Please give us more details of what you are trying to achieve.

Hi Motor1, did a partial decat this weekend. My Honda exhaust weighs at least 5kg so will probably do a full decat some time soon. I was looking at importing the Mavromac to replace it sometime. I'm not sure if you can get a can to fit yours locally. Try surfing the Burgman forum for that.
Unfortunately there's no such thing as reasonably priced slipons for the Maxi's. (That I know of).

Home is where your bike sits still long enough to leave a few drops of oil on the ground.

Stan, yes, lighter in weight. I also recon it will 'breath' easier.  After 70k km the cat must be pretty caked.

MM, did you take any pics?  Or can you tell how you did it?

There must be companies up your side of the country that can make something suitable.

Down here we have 2 well-known places, http://www.scorchberserker.co.za/ & http://www.bossonperformance.co.za/, who have a variety of canisters which can be made to fit & mounted to just about any bike or scooter.

I am sure that there must be technicians / workshops in your area with the experience and skills to achieve what you wish.

A partial decat is only what you can reach through the intake pipe using the most delicate of tools....a large masonry drill bit and hammer! We removed around R500 of platinum before deciding to send the zorst to a guy in Roodepoort who specializes in opening up and removing such stuff. I'll post details when I know them myself.
