Ixile M2

Fitted my new exhaust From brspecialtuning today looks tidy and didn't take to long. The only problem both hooks pulled out of the springs, no stretch in the springs at all so ordered some 75mm exhaust springs of ebay. now for the tail tidy will I be needing indicator heat shields ?

well several people have melted the rear indicator on 790's
I suppose it will depend upon the tail tidy of your choice and how much clearance there is

Joy is riding your bike to it's limit

Comparing the positioning of the stock exhaust with that of the Ixil M2, the Ixil appears to be a lot shorter. I'd be surprised if it would be close enough to the indicator to do any damage. It may not even be in line with it.

Hi,
I'm thinking to buy this exhaust. Good looking and sound nice from youtube videos.

There is another option with similar styling, the Austin Racing exhaust, it's a titanium exhaust not homologated and it's overpriced in my opinion.

Can you review us your exhaust?

It does come with a euro 4 compliance certificate, waiting for the salt on the roads to stop being put down then I will be out on the roads.

It's probably the one I'm going to get too. I'm in Vancouver, and having a problem finding an Ixil dealer here (or at least a dealer who will reply to my e-mails!) I could buy from the UK, but I'd likely get slugged for import duty etc. Think I'll end up buying from Ixil USA, having it shipped to Washington State, then picking it up from there. Roger, looking forward to your review on it, and hopefully a sound clip!

What did you mean with "its crazy how much power you loos, but the look is really nice."?

The slip-on decrease the engine performance?

If it's been known for a long time, this loss of power caused by the Ixil M2 on the 790 Duke must be documented somewhere. Couldn't find anything online about it. Anybody else found this an issue?
