I think my exhaust may have a hole?
« on: March 04, 2021, 01:40:10 PM »
Riding home from work the other day and my bike started to sound rather beefy in comparison to normal.

I don't have a before video but do let me know what you think, I'm not losing my marbles right? that's not a normal stock vara exhaust sound? The wife being the wife says, sounds normal. :faceplam:

You should be able to feel it blowing out. Try holding a small piece of tissue near the joints and you will see it move as the exhaust gas hits it. Does sound like a blow to me.

You know I looked everywhere but had an idea after reading your comment, its cold out today, started the bike, sounded even worse today but immediately saw where the hole was, looks like I need a new exhaust.

Thanks.
