Title: Aftermarket Stainless Exhaust System
Post by: Taught2BeCautious on October 06, 2018, 11:51:43 AM
I found this website accidentally whilst looking for something else, and thought it might help someone:
https://www.blackwidowexhausts.co.uk/varadero-77-c.asp (https://www.blackwidowexhausts.co.uk/varadero-77-c.asp)

As far as I can tell, they are true to the original design and have systems for all model years, but I would probably want to ask them the internal diameter of the front pipe before buying (it should be the same as the rear) and if the later version has a catalytic converter.

They don't list a separate link pipe (for fitting your own back box) but you could phone them and ask.

I have no connection to the company, and am not a customer.

The BlackWidow system fits well to my 2014 Vara, but has, as others I have seen, a too small dia. rear pipe.  And their short dampers are LOUD.  Go for 400mm.

Looks good!

The original front downpipe has a double wall tube, so the internal diameter is probably not far from the rear downpipe.

Don't forget, the rear cylinder is de-tuned compared to the front, so it probably doesn't make a fat lot of difference as there's nothing you can do about it an the injection models.

I'm guessing that the O2 sensors transferred over to the new system, and you could use any make of end can with the same inlet diameter??

The "TurboKit"  ; https://www.motorsportgoetz.com/Exhaust-Honda-Varadero-XLV-125-stainless-steel-edition-with-e-mark
will probably give better performance... (but does not look so good, and other rear-pipe & muffler combos will not fit).
