    Cheap Exhaust

    Has anyone bought one of those cheap exhaust's from eBay.
    Brand names are hundreds of dollars but on eBay they are about 50 bucks or less.

    You would have to come up with some sort of link pipe to go between the muffler and header pipe. Then if you have a center stand, there is no bumper.

    If you want a cheaper exhaust that still retains quality, buy a Delkevic.

    Ditto on the Delkevic, mine was about $185. I have the stainless steel 9" Oval. It is great quality and sounds really good. It has the centerstand stop included.

    Here's my 14" Delkevic

    Fit was perfect and has the bumper for the centerstand. I wouldn't take a chance on a one-size-may-fit ebay brandless that will require even more money and work to fab up the parts that are missing. If you work in a muffler shop I can see it.

    +1 Mainsail..! I chose the DanMoto and really like it. Mine was about $140 shipped to my door and an easy install i did myself. It came with all of the necessary parts and looks great IMHO. :{)

    I would be concerned about an ad that distorts the logo.

    An exhaust is not just a straight pipe. Each bike has a specific exhaust flow which is critical for proper engine operation. I just can't see how an exhaust can be universal.

    I would not trust that kind of 0-design Chinese knock-off. Or any unknown brand.

    Seriously? The engine in the NC produces less than 75 Hp/liter. That's 2 Hp/liter less than the engine in my Honda CR-V. Exhaust tuning is critical for racing engines, but not so much for street bike engines. Street bike engine exhaust requirements are primarily driven by pollution / noise emission requirements and aesthetics.

    And the fact that the ECU piloting injection is expecting specific behavior for the flows. When you change exhaust flow you alter intake flow, the ECU usually does not compensate that (measures "only" concern temperature, throttle opening, outside air pressure, O2 level).

    And the worse part is altered shock waves propagation that if not properly tuned may damage exhaust valves.

    Well, do what you want, there is a reason most owner do not install cheap pipes.

    There's a reason it is cheap; because it is. Would not recommend anything under Delkevic; I would consider that the low end of acceptable with any hope of it lasting a while. I've seen poor reviews on Danmoto also; consider it suspect; and apparently no center stand stop. Or wait it out and pick up a used Akro/2Bros/etc when one comes available.
