Honda AT exhaust pipe replacement

Hello!

My Honda AT -99 exhaust pipe has gotten quite a bit of rust on it. Especially both clamps are almost gone and have eated the metal underneath with them. Seems that I have to replace almost the whole thing as gas escapes the pipe system half way throug...

Now, does anyone have an original AT pipe system for sale in Finland? I would need the whole system all the way down from the cylinders.

Or any advice for a replacement pipe? I do not need more power but would not mind if the weight goes down a little bit.

Hello!

I have still problems with my XRV750 RD07 1999 exhaust systems replacement. I need to change both downpipes and muffler but have not been able to find a suitable one. Original Honda parts are very expensive. Front down pipe alone costs more than 400 euros in Finland!!!

Aftermarkets parts, on the other hand, are hard to find. For example Arrow makes models up to 1998 bike - not for mine Sad

Simply said, I have not been able to find any alternatives for my bike!

Any ideas what to do? What muffler/ pipe system to look for and where?

Hello to Finland,

sorry, but I did not see this post earlier.

I ride an 1995 AT as well, but I just bought it in October and I am not so familiar with all the models yet.

The 1995 is an RD07, right, in 1998 it became the RD07a.

I think an aftermarket exhaust for the RD07 should fit the RD07a.

But I cant recommend any after market exhaust because I use the original.

In Germany it is not that difficult to find a used one over Ebay. But I live in Switzerland.

Do you want me to try to get some more information, posting you question at www.africatwin.de ??

Greetings Mika

As you probably know there are a lot of manufacturers making mufflers for the AT; Remus, Arrow and Lazer seem to be pretty popular. I have an RD07 with a BSM. The problem is the front down pipes. I have seen them come up on eBay from time to time, but I recently saw a post on www.xrv.org.uk/ with a link to a company that apparently make bespoke stainless kit fairly cheaply, certainly less than your quote of 400 Euros. Have a look at the discussion at http://www.xrv.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3361.

Good luck!

Stig

I have a muffler from my old 99 RD07A it was removed from the bike after 15000 miles in favour of a Remus. It has been in my shed for two and a half years and is in perfect condition..Let me know if you are still interested.
I'm in Ireland and postage here can be very expensive for heavy items.

Hello electric_monk,

I know you posted this way back in 2006 but is there any chance you still have the muffler available. Im based in Dublin. Thanks.
