Thats cool, I respect that philosophy, but your stock exhaust wasnt broke and you fixed that. Which by the way I feel was a major improvement.pauljo said:Basically, my take on this is that you don't fix what is not broken. The AN650 runs great - no driveability issues like surging or excessive backfiring. I'm not at all tempted to look into removing this part.
My stock exhaust was broke. No sound was coming out of it. :roll:G said:Thats cool, I respect that philosophy, but your stock exhaust wasnt broke and you fixed that.

Well what about if its it working fine.................strip it down, tinker a bit and find out why! :wink:Randy said:For what it's worth (very little I am sure ) I agree with both theories
On the one hand if it's not broke leave it alone.
On the other hand almost anything can be made better.And on the other hand I have to much time on my hands.
I am refering to the Burgman650. I dont have one yet but I am interested in this new super scoot movement, because they seem to offer more of what Im looking for than any other ride. I got the information from the offical Suzuki web site. If you look under scooters then go to the Burg650 then look under features, in the engine section it list the PAIR valve. This system does not inject into the intake side for combustion as that would defeat the purpose of it. I havent had a first hand look at the system on the burgman so I cant explain the routing. However I have seen bikes that route the external lines to the intake side of the head "LC1500/C90 & Warrior, just to name a few" only to have an extended internal port directly to the exhaust port side of the head. All the import manufactures have a sytem like this, in which raw air is injected into the exhaust port for EPA emission purposes. The system is usually easy to remove or bypass causing no harm to the bike but in many ways improving performance and eliminating clutter. Just curious if anyone has removed this in case I go with the Burg650.magyver said:G I have to assume you are refering to a 650 and that you have a US model that being correct then where do you see that system having any thing to do with the exhaust?
I went back and looked again thinking I missed something nope all that system does is control the air into the crank case and back out to be run through the engin to be burned in the normal combustion then it goes out the exhaust not injected down stream in any way. However some other models outside the US do have a different set -up where they do run into the exhaust down stream from the engin.
