    High level exhaust

    I bought a used high level link pipe and a used Black widow silencer from eBay on the off chance I could make it work.
    I’m probably going to fix the bracket to the rack for now as there really aren’t many options, unless I make a hanger that comes down from a grab handle mounting bolt.
    I’m waiting on some stainless spacers and bolts.
    It does clear the rear indicator when in the correct position.
    I may have to get a link pipe made up eventually so the silencer follows the bikes lines a bit better, but I think it looks pretty good as is.

    I like what you're doing there Bikespod and takes it back to lookish like the original vfr. Could never understand why have a fantastic look of a full wheel that the single sided swingarm gives, then stick a massive exhaust over it. I think mv Augusta have done a fab job with their take on it. Looking forward to see how this progresses. :062:

    I believe the thought was that a high level exhaust would interfere with passenger seating and luggage carrying due to the physical presence of the exhaust and the heat generated. Honda solved it on the 6th Gen/Vtec (02-13) VFR by moving the exhausts under the seat, but then changed back after that.  :087:

    If you neither carry passengers nor use panniers then it makes sense to reveal that beautiful rear end.  :169:

    Was just about to say the same 😉
    No panniers or passengers for me.
    Can always throw the Arrow can back on if it’s necessary.

    Went with stainless fastenings and spacers into the rack. Was just the cleanest and easiest option

    It’s rock solid and sounds meaty

    Thanks. I’m a bit worried it’s too noisy though. I guess if I get pulled by the police I’ll know it’s definitely too noisy. 🤷‍♂️

    Looks great and definitely the place to mount it. Are you going to remove the pillion brackets? My mate had a similar end can and they do sound loud. Might be an idea to do a wee YouTube video I think. After that, post a link to it and let the forum members vote if it's too loud or not. :121: :725:
