Question Exhaust Tech Question For The Experts?

Hi Gents,

Forgive me if I've asked this before. In regards headers/exhaust (I'm thinking of a longterm project) I note that a few chaps have fitted straight through headers (no x-pipe/cat). I like the clean, simple lines of this set up and such would fit in with my retro look.

However doesn't the computer diagnostic need the exhaust to be 'connected' (via the x-pipe) to do something (more technical than I'm aware of)..?

Or is is okay to have have something like the Delkevic headers coupled with cans run independently and not connected?

Is this not recommend or okay?

Cheers,

Roy

I am running that exhaust system and I have not had any issues with the rideability with the system. I already have 3000km on this in the past month.

On my TTR I have Arrow headers, on the bobber I run verex headers both 2 - 2 (independent pipes) on my Street Twin I use a meerkat x pipe. The independent systems are good for top end power & noise,
the x pipe is better for low/mid range grunt, losing out by a few of hp at top end, if you do not push your bike quite hard you may never notice the difference then it is down to aesthetics.
Ecu is happy whichever you choose, TuneECU is on the case & has cracked ecu so we should very soon be able to alter the map ourselves, I already have PCV on all of mine so too late for me.

Thanks for that @trirocket3 ,

That's a great help. I'm a sedate rider and was thinking only of aesthetics, so it sounds as though this won't be a problem down the road. I was just worried that I would mess things up.

Good to know and very helpful indeed.

Cheers,

Roy
