Cagiva Navi - Modifications and suggestions
« on: September 16, 2017, 16:47:22 »
New thread specifically aimed at creating a help centre for Navigator owners (only a few of us about)

1st Question
how do the exhaust cans connect to the collector box?  I have removed from the bike but can't separate the cans from the collector, does the end can slip in between a double walled collector box? it is it like standard I.e not double skinned?
they are very well fused Together , no go with WD40 etc, will apply heat tomorrow, just enquiring what might be holding them:(

Exhausts are TLP's specialist subject! I'm sure he will have lots of knowledge to impart...

This must be a wind up.

No one ever asks me a question about Nails without an element of pity.

I'll play along for now.

The standard end cans are just an interference fit, a good,well aimed wack will separate them.



The Navigator is restricted in 3 areas, the exhaust, the airbox and the ECU. The standard exhaust system is 38mm I'd with the "H" collector. I made a new system in 50mm and fitted a Tuono collector splitting initially into 2 50mm cans. After much googling and head scratching I decided to go for a single 63mm can and made a 63m link pipe. Much more mid range and no apparent loss at the top.

if this forum supported 'likes' that comment would certainly get one.

A suitable Sat Nav with Petrol station locator is a MUST.  :stirpot:

Thanks TL Power

After a bit of heat and a beating with a hammer and chisel I have got one off, as I thought the collector box is double skinned, which explains the reluctance to do as requested.  Will engage the other at a later date as I'm pooped!
primed the belly pan and luggage rack ready for paint, was thinking of bright orrange to contrast the blue bike, but seeing as I'm a tight arse and have some blue from a Yamaha, thought I would try it, can always change later.

Ha ha....
Was thinking either orange (but a bit KTM) or Rossi Yellow (luminous) but will be tight and use what I have!
Looks like you have both KTM and Rossi covered in tose pics........

An old picture, the orange is Ford Electric. Sadly the bottom engine cover dissintegrated (as most of them do) and has been replaced by as SV1000 item. It came in Suzuki blue and had never been fitted for 15 from ebay. The lower screen mount has been mummyfied is carbon wrap, the fuel cap surround is now Volvo Titanium.

Finally got the end cans off, proper welded on, one is still serviceable the other butchered.  New GPRs on and she sounds like a proper bike, excellent.  now onto the siezed choke cable.  and re-bleed the brakes.
Have applied some paint but although the blue applied well the colour is not really to my liking, Rossi luminous yellow is looking appealing  :)

The cable you refere to is the fast idle cable. The ultra basic fuel injection dumps in loads of fuel on the cold map, hence it needs some extra air. The same as the TL. Front calipers are Honda Hornet 600 and the discs from the VFR750. I find EBC HH work very well. :thumb:

The high viz look sounds interesting.
