Seems counterproductive to me. Go to all that trouble to get shot of the supposedly restrictive stock exhaust and then shove a glorified pan scrub up the chuff of your free flowing full system.
At least it will look good down at the pub.🤑

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

ive noticed increase, i was able to pop a wheelie on 3rd gear, going around 100km/h.   but ive reverted then back to stock headers, and was not able to repeat the same trick

Why did you revert back to stock?

1) cops. I like to wheelie, but here penalty 2yrs off licence and fine 800-1500eur. With the full exhaust, any cop hear you mile away
2) didnt like the vibrations in the footpegs and to handlebars

Hi guys,

I've been reading this topic a few times because I think I might go for the chinese headers (aliexpress). Don't want to mess up the forum to much by creating a new topic, so that's why I'm kicking up this topic.

Saw a few users here who already fitted them. How's the exhaust after a few months of riding? Is the quality really that good?

For now I have a slip on from SC project, the SC1-R. Got the baffle out and still missing a nice sound. Gaining torque or HP's is not the main reason for choosing the chinese header, so if the gains are not big, that's not a problem. I just want to know if this header would be a nice option and has enough quality for my purpose. I'm only riding in warm and nice weather and don't drive a lot of miles.

Hope that somebody can give me some advise.

Thanks! :152:

Hi, everything is fine with headers, done nearly 1000km with them fitted. Been a monent when i tired of loudness and put back oem headers. But few days ago i went back full ex route, but using 2 db killers. Now loudness acceptable, while hard accelerate.
On idle its hardly noticable.

Nice!

Is there a modification needed for the air intake? I saw a guy on YouTube blocking his AIS hoses with vacuum caps. I've heard that this is neccessary to stop the backfires right? But, is this a must? Maybe I do like the popping sound, heheh. If it isn't a must I first wanna give it a try without modding the air intake.

When reading the forum I also saw an option to block the AIS with block off plates, that must be the proper option but vacuum caps must have the same effect as the block off plates?

Putting caps on or blocking ais will eliminate backfire.  But as i said, i have db killer , so there is isnt much of backfire left, just sometimes i can hear. I didnt blocked anything
