Alternative Silencers

Post by Rotating588 » Wed Sep 16, 2020 2:36 pm

Hi has anyone fitted different [lighter] silencer to the IP2?

I would like to do so provided the noise is not too loud.

Thanks Roger

I doubt it,the reason they are so heavy is they have to be made of Stainless Steel,anything else melts exclaim,('cos of the extreme exhaust heat)J.B.

I would imagine a good quality fully stainless steel silencer would do the job, there are lots out there but would need to be a heavy duty item.

Hello Roger,

Not sure this is a route you’d want to go down, but my bike is essentially an IP2 and I made a 2 into 1 system with a lightweight race silencer for my bike. I had to polish out any race markings for obvious road use reasons, but it works and sounds good. Certainly about 20% the weight of 2 original ones.
