Supertrapp Exhaust

Does anyone have any experience with Supertrapp exhausts? I found a new Supertrapp slip-on for my 93 xr600 at a great price. It has the disc system which I am not at all familiar with. Nice looking pipe though.

When I die I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did....not screaming in horror like the passengers in the backseat of his car.

I have not heard that name in a long time!

So in other words, no. I don't know much about them.

A signature feature of SuperTrapp exhaust systems is the diffuser disc technology, created and patented for the XDUSOR, the first motorcycle exhaust product sold by Moller in 1971. This technology allows the rider to adapt their bike, or ATV, to a specific riding environment. This is accomplished through a series of discs with a precisely aligned diameter that form the exhaust outlet. By adding or subtracting discs, the rider can tune the powerband and sound of their machine in just a few minutes with basic hand tools.

Removing discs decreases the exhaust opening and increases backpressure. This effectively decreases the powerband to create more low-end torque. It also decreases exhaust tone and enriches carburetion.

Adding discs increases the exhaust outlet and decreases back pressure. This widens the powerband at the top end. It also increases exhaust tone and leans out carburetion.

All SuperTrapp systems come with installation instructions that indicate the recommended number of discs for each application.:-)

A innovative system that was very popular - Supertrap was purchased some years back by one of the other big brand US pipe makers (can't remember who). If the price is good buy it.

I had one on my '89 XR600. Sounded sweet!

I should have swapped it for my '95 stocker (I had both bikes for a few months).

I had a Supertrapp 4 into 1 system on my '83 Honda 650 Nighthawk. No issues and nice tunability. I would think they are more state of the art almost 30 years later?

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

No point hiding it from her as she will 'hear' something has changed after you fit it!

Right the post got me thinking and searching.

Supertrapp is alive and well - they now own Kerker. Hmmm a pair of those alloy shorties would make a nice under engine kit for a custom 919 pipe ......

I have bought one for my DR650. I bought a second one for $50 off of thumpertalk because it was too cheap to pass up. I was thinking about trying them on my 919 for laughs.

With my wife that's debatable. It's all just noise to her.

well the point has already been made, but the supertrapp is a great exhaust. I had one on my XL250. It sounded great and performed well too!
