Quill evo 2 for the Crossrunner
on: November 15, 2012, 10:05:11 PM
Hi all....As some of you may have read I have been looking at exhaust options.

I went to Quill exhausts today and they sold me a short Quill EVO 2 oval exhaust to fit the Crossrunner. It fitted superbly and sounded fantastic...

I had to change back to my original exhaust though, as my bike has only done 159 miles from new. So the Quil unitl is waiting to go back on after the bikes first service, I was told by Hunts Honda to keep the original on for first 600 miles to let engine management settle in....

I shall post sound clips and pics up soon :152:

Sorry not yet....But believe me it sounds nice...Crossrunner in bits at the moment..I am just spraying the rear hugger and the two wind deflectors in the same colour red before putting back together

Spannerman.
When fitting the air deflectors, follow hondas instructions for removing the tap when applying.  It works.  However the measurement they give you is very vague because of the curve of the fairing.  You are far better lining them up and marking with a soft pencil or felt tip before removing the adhesive tape covering and not bothering with hondas measurement from the back of the fairing where it joins the tank.

Easiest is youtube, but you could convert to mp3.  I take it youve used a fruity firm product to get that kind of file.
