Beowulf exhaust
« on: 07 April, 2020, 09:29:28 AM »
I've now fitted my carbon fibre Beowulf silencer on my MkII and am well pleased with the quality of both the silencer and the service from Beowulf. And the nice shiny radiator guard is a perfect fit.

Maybe I'm going off ma heid during these strange times but I thought I read somewhere that there is a ballast plate which compensates for the weight of the exhaust and can be removed.

Can't find any mention of it now !!

Can anyone help me please????

Ballast plate? Or balance plate?  :084:

Not something I would ruminate over.

Those plates are only 300g each, I've carried heavier sandwiches in my pocket.  :119:

Thanks Shed.

On searching for "balance plate" I found the threads I had seen before.
