exhaust removable baffle
« on: 07 March, 2020, 03:45:40 PM »
Hi All,

I have a 2009 CBF and I am struggling to get an exhaust that sounds a bit louder than the standard twin exhaust ,can anyone tell me if the baffles are removable on the standard exhaust.

Not that I'm aware, but others may know what I do not.

Struggling, why? The only limitation is cost. I replaced my standard ones with "Viper" branded exhaust's and link pipes, and then went on to discover that the O.E.M ones I got with the bike had basically rotted away over the years under the clamp -- so can be glad that I did.

In honestly unless you've got a large amount of rust I wouldn't because you don't really gain anything. My bike sounds louder, sure, but that's about it. The engine on the CBF really doesn't have enough character to make a loud exhaust worthwhile. I had a Kawasaki before this and that thing popped and made smile inducing noises from time to time, the CBF just sounds dull in comparison.

If you do get aftermarket exhausts then make sure that they're oval so that you can still use the O.E.M panniers -- if you have them, or use them.

I put round cans on because they were way cheaper for some reason.

Expect to spend £200 on aftermarket exhaust set-up, and that's on the budget end.

I kept an eye on Ebay and got myself a pair of used Hawk cans, they only cost me £75.00 including the link pipes, they make a lovely deep sound with the baffles in, they are also loads lighter than the OEM Honda ones!!!

No probs edger.  :028:

I wouldn't worry, some days I feel like I'd struggle to find my own arse with both hands.  :067:  :015:
