Silencer options on the '97 620 EGS-E Adventure
What a top bike the ’97 620 EGS-E Adventure is! And what an awful exhaust system (dual low pipes) – I’m sure that any ’97 Adventure owner will concur that the standard system chokes the engine somewhat.
Here is the solution I used for the last 2 years: I cut off the left hand pipe as it was just extra weight (it didn’t even got that hot anyway so it was obviously just for looks). I also cut out the inside of the right-side pipe, which freed up the engine nicely in the lower rev range. Great for Asia, but now I’m back in the UK and need to get it through the MOT.
Any self respecting MOT man will laugh me out of town (after he gets his hearing back) – obviously a side effect of cutting out the inside of the pipe is an increase in decibels…. and, as I am getting a bit older in the tooth, I also like the idea of reducing the noise (but without losing power).
Any suggestions? What solutions have other ’97 Adventure owner’s come up with? I noticed Ro’s solution (in the thread below) was to stick on a CBR600 can – any further info about this would be gratefully received (i.e. model no, noise, power, durability, cost, etc):
What other exhaust systems have people found that work well with this bike? Has anyone put on the complete exhaust system from the new 640 Adventure?
Cheers in advance.
