Those of you with the singled sided exhaust setups...

Those of you with the singled sided exhaust setups, does your exhaust can itself still smell?

I know that moving to the single sided exhaust set up gets rid of the exhaust smell in terms of it not coating your tailbag/riding clothing in the exhaust smell because the exhausts are no longer under the tail.

I have the Danmoto dual undertail exhaust setup and when I have my bike in my garage after riding, it stinks out the entire place with the exhaust stink smell.

I'm trying to figure out if the smell will still persist with the single sided low mount exhaust, or if moving to that set up gets rid of the smell 100% completely entirely - be it on clothes, riding jackets, tail bags, exhaust can itself etc.

For me it got rid of it 90%, but could still smell it at stoplights and a little bit in the garage. Definitely got it off the clothes though.

Same here. I can still smell it when at lights and for sure when I park it in the garage. If I kill the bike with the garage door closed and open it after the engine is off, garage doesn't smell as bad. Just push her into her stall. Plus side is my clothes, bags, and jacket don't smell and I can actually ride to work without ha in to change.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

It got rid of about 99% of mine. If I fire it up in the garage and let it run, then I can start to smell it.

Didn't have the stink with the stock set-up, and don't have it now, either.

Have you still got your stock headers?

I'll give you $5 and a bag of chips

But seriously, I would be keen on purchasing them if you still have them. I'm wanting to go down the route NZSpokes did - stock headers with single sided low mount, but it's all a case of availability and here in NZ there isn't much floating around...

Yeah, I've still got the whole stock set-up, but I'm holding on to it for the moment, thanks all the same

Wierdly, with this 919, when I first got the bike a few weeks ago the stink was really bad. But it seems to be going away. My first 919 (same year '04) had it pretty damn bad. Maybe Im gonna get lucky with this one. Not that I care that much anyway.

I've got the single sided 2 brothers ( under the seat) no stink. Bought it that way and have decided to keep it like that just because it doesn't stink.
Also, my last 919 had stock everything and did not stink.

The low side exhaust does not eliminate the stink, it just redirects it lower so it does not get back to the rider. I don't get the stink on me anymore but with the bike idling I sure as hell don't want to stand behind it!!!

There are bold motorcyclists and old motorcyclists, but (OK) there are few old bold motorcyclists

Bringing this thread back.

While my question isn't about stink, the title is perfect for my case:

For those of you with the singled sided exhaust setups, how did you sort out PC setup ? For example, I'd like to go this route but I want to get a shorty exhaust (not sure which one), is there a way i can properly update my PC map without taking it to a dyno shop ? (not that we have any here in Vancouver ) ?

Thanks

Sorry to hop in. Does anyone have a link for a write up for a single sided exhuast with the stock header?

I don't think I have seen any. Try the search. I know it involves cutting and welding before it sweeps up into the Y. You're better off Fong a CBR900rr header.

There have been a couple done, but does require some work if I remember. I think Wolf went this route, with a different mid pipe.

Mentioned here, but I think the pics are toast:
