Fuel exhaust 1050xt
« on: April 27, 2021, 09:05:39 »
After a lot of thought and research, plus a phone call to Fuel exhausts, I decided to buy their oval Diablo mini in carbon fibre. I am well pleased with the decision, it works and looks well and saves a shedload of weight (3.6kg). At £330 all up with postage and silicone sealant I think is reasonable. I ordered it on Sunday and received it three days later. The fit is perfect, unlike a lot of aftermarket kit that needs fettling and swearing to set up.

It really suits the bike, enjoy. :thumb:
To be happy, I don't need private helicopters,a Florida house or a yacht. I'm fine with my motorcycle,a trip to a forest in Bavaria and some lunch money.

How does it sound ?
Noisy, just a little louder than stock ?

Hello,
It is not noisy with the baffle in, but has a deeper  more pleasing tone. Sounds a lot better than stock. I guess it would be noisy with the baffle out but do not know, and won’t be finding out.

Do you need to do anything with the fuelling?  One of the big plus points of the 1050 for me was how smoothly it pulls from lower down.

Thanks Monkeyman - that's the kind of reply I was hoping for - I don't want loud, but a nicer deeper sound would be nice !

On my older but not much different 2014 Veek I  found the Fuel can to loud, sold it and bought a Remus, quieter and better finished but expensive.

That was a bit of a worry for me, but I was reassured that all would be well by Fuel, and they were right - no fuelling issues whatsoever. They told me problems only occur if airbox or other fuel system mods have been made from standard.
