Turning your motorcycle into a personal expression of yourself is always great fun and especially so when a custom part enhances the performance of your bike. One such customisation we offer our customers is a selection of premium aftermarket motorcycle exhausts in NZ, including the highly regarded Scorpion exhausts.
For most people, the primary function of an exhaust is to act as a muffler to reduce engine noise, which is also why some riders remove the exhaust as an attempt to increase the noise output of their motorcycle. However, this is not the primary function of an exhaust system, which is why riders should never remove it.
The most important function of the exhaust system is to channel the toxic and noxious gases produced by the internal combustion engine away from the rider. In most countries, a catalytic converter is also incorporated in the system to reduce air pollution and may not be removed for any reason.
The internal combustion engines’ valves require a little assistance in both clearing the piston chamber of left-over gases and the drawing in of fresh air. The exhaust system helps in this process by creating both positive (pressure) and negative (suction) sound waves in a very technical manner that is commonly referred to as “tuning”, thereby increasing the overall efficiency of the engine.
The length and diameter of the pipes used in the exhaust system have a noticeable effect on the power output of the engine at different RPMs. An incorrect replacement or modification of the stock exhaust system is the main cause of complaints regarding loss of power at specific times, such as acceleration or high torque situations.
When Buying Motorcycle Mufflers in NZ, Consider This
The Scorpion exhausts are imported from Great Britain, where they are handmade to exact standards and precise engineering specifications. Benefits of Scorpion exhausts include:
Each exhaust is designed for the intended motorcycle and is thus a direct replacement of the original equipment and does not require modification of the motorcycle or adjustments to the engine system.
The exhaust kits are available in different levels of “completeness”, depending on the specific model, ranging from half-system to a full replacement of the exhaust system. All parts are compatible with each other so that you can upgrade your motorcycle in convenient stages.
Different visual finishes are available, like stainless steel or titanium and muffler styles, depending on personal preference.
The exhaust system of a motorcycle adds to its overall aesthetic appeal and contributes to the distinctive sound of the machine. Fitting a custom exhaust system to your motorcycle as a replacement for the original exhaust is a wonderful way to customise and personalise your ride.
