Ha!

One day, when this isn't my daily.

There is also a 855cc kit but I don't think going for a resleave is a great idea on a daily.

30 day post warning. Excellent.

Work has been kicking my ass lately. 5 days off this year so far.

Anyway after having ridden this bike as a daily for a few months now I can note that the stock exhaust is horrible. It is the first thing that needs to go once cash permits. Not much in the way of aftermarket exhausts unless I import one from Europe or Japan. I have had one quote done for a 2-1 which came in at $1000.

So the stock exhaust is a dual wall fulled welded to the muffler system. The only join is the link pipe between the headers but even the T off is welded on. There is a cat in each muffler and from what I can find the stock exhaust weighs somewhere around 14kg. Most after market ones come in at around 7kg.

Here is a photo from late last year on a ride out to Boonah.



Ohh and the US gets the updated version of the W800 this year. Slipper clutch, ABS, rear disk and a bad paint job. Not sure I like it. But there might be a few parts that can cross over we will have to wait and see.

I picked up a power commander today for once I get a decent exhaust. The bloke I bought it from was kind enough to give me a stock exhaust system as well.

So in the interest of information gathering I decided to weigh it. My scale only reads to 8kg so I had to weigh each side seperatly. This exhaust also has the end baffles removed which would reduce the weight slightly. I left the flanges hooked on to compensate for that.

Kawasaki W800 stock exhaust weight.
15.13kg

Hey Brodie, I think Staintune make mufflers for your bike, probably worth a call if you're interested.

Thanks Pete,

I had a look and they have them listed as sold out. Price was $1900.

A quick quote I had done was for $1000 for a 2-1 mild steel exhaust.
A mate of mine has offered to weld up a system for me if I buy all the pipe work and lay it out how I want it.

I am in no rush though. I want to keep a really high standard for this bike.

Well, if you were in a country with one less "L", I'd say we could fabricobble a stainless exhaust for you in about a day (because you never manage to pull one of these jobs off in an afternoon)

I would rather be over there. Too bloody hot here.

Wet 'n' cold overhere...

(enough ranting)

What's the ID of the stock pipes? The overall layout looks rather conventional, but well sized. So with the right mufflers you should be good to make some nice flow...

Don't be fooled. They are double walled pipes with the ID coming in around 30mm. I will cut one once I am home and get a proper measurement.

My first plan was to run some reverse cone mufflers on the stock pipes but after having a look the system is all welded from flange to muffler tip.
