Postby dagodave » Sun Sep 23, 2012 10:16 am



Hello Has any one ever fabricated their own exhaust system i ask this because my recently purchased project Aspencade 1200 circa 1984 came with everything but the middle and back boxes .My welding skills are up to this but it would be nice to talk yo someone who has tried, one of the reasons to make my own is cost a new system is 500£ + secondhand £200+ any one got any suggestions best wishes dagodave

Hi,
I've never tried to do something like that, and I do not know of anyone who has done so, but here in Italy you can mount only original exhaust systems or certified as the original. ;)

Because of the proliferation of "loud motorcycles", the Australian Design Rules for Vehicles (ADR) now states that you can only fit exhaust systems that comply with the standards, and the system has to be stamped with the Standard number as well as the DBa levels to be expected from that system.

It must be a safety thing, because those "loud motorcycles" must have trouble hearing the police and emergency sirens with those loud exhausts giving everyone else a headache. Obviously, I am not in favour of loudness in the interest of safety.

Same here in New Zealand, originals only and if you do fit aftermarket they have to be certified and your vehicle has to be rectified. If you fit uncertified "anything" your vehicle gets stickered, and then you have to take it to a testing station to get rectified etc ........ can and does cost lots of money.

The other thing to bear in mind is your insurance. Insurance companies are becoming increasingly vigilant in their efforts to avoid paying out for accidents etc, Even if a modified component isn't anything remotely to do with the claim, they can (and have) refused to pay out because of undeclared modifications to the machine. However, declaring modifications can result in much higher premiums being demanded.
