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.

Hey Chay - did you have any issue with fitting the Link pipes? I remember on my A9 i had a bit of a mare with them. Thinking of doing this to my FAC model now.

cheers

Hi Mark.

I had no problem fitting the end can.

Nice bit of kit and was a straight swapover.

After a few weeks I decided I'd like it a bit quieter so spoke to Beowulf and they posted a baffle which help a wee bit .

I also removed the ballast plate on the opposite side to even up the weight.

I seem to remember it was cheaper ordering direct from Beowulf - as opposed to going through Ebay.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Chay
