Suitable exhausts for 1995 Connie.
« on: March 06, 2018, 08:02:16 pm »
Hello all,

I have a pair of motad neta exhausts on my bike (they came with when I bought her). Anyway, noticed a sizable hole in the right end can when doing a bit of work on it recently and it got me thinking about maybe replacing the end cans. So would folks on here mind offering a few suggestions and maybe posting some pics of what you've got on yours? I was looking at some delkevic ones or has anyone any experience with black widow exhausts Budget is not huge at the moment after springing for new tires filter etc. All suggestions and advice greatly appreciated as always.

I had Cobra F1s Slip-On's on 3 of my C-10's.
Still have a set I removed, Their in the attic.
Hadn't thought about it, but might be willing to sell.
Anyone interested?

Ride safe, Ted

I have a pair of motad neta exhausts on my bike (they came with when I bought her). Anyway, noticed a sizable hole in the right end can when doing a bit of work on it recently and it got me thinking about maybe replacing the end cans. So would folks on here mind offering a few suggestions and maybe posting some pics of what you've got on yours?

Interesting...
Those are Euro cans, and were a good design, and quality build back in time.. I would hold onto them, and take the cans to a good welder, to repair them and keep them working as such.  Many of them were stainless steel, and I'm surprised you have a rust out, what model cans? Can you post a picture?  I hatento tell you to dump them, as they went out of business last year, but some enterpreneur bought the factory/bussiness, so they may be back up shortly...
Just for s&g, I actually had a set of them, given to me once, back in the early '80 s for my KZ, and I tried them out to keep my bike a "sleeper" concept, as it was a drag oriented machine.. they worked well, were semi quiet, and gave the look I wanted, but I ended up going full drag race on the bike... which is now, again, back in sleeper mode.. a bit loud, but still a danger to kids onncrotchrockets.

Shownus what ya got, and look into repairing them, its way less $$ than a new system, and its a Conni man.. be frugal.. :rotflmao: :great:

MOTAD N-Eta mufflers were mild steel, so rust is an issue. MOTAD headers are stainless.
Delkevic are good mufflers and should last well.

I got a set of used holeshots.  one of the cans had a hole in it from rubbing on the wheel nut.  it had been repaired and works fine.  look into repairing them if possible.
