It is very important that you always keep the exhaustion system of your vehicle perfectly
in tune, not only to lessen the sound and air pollution caused by noises and gases spewed out
by a poorly maintained exhaust, but also to improve the comfort and safety of the people
inside the vehicle.
We recommend that you run a complete overhaul of your exhaust system at least every
A broken support or pad, for instance, will cause greater damage due to the vibration, a problem
that might be easily overcome with a periodical overhaul.
Another important reminder: a parked vehicle with the engine running generates 400ml of water
steam every 18 minutes. When cooled down, this steam accumulates inside the exhaust. Moreover, fuel
burning generates gases expelled through the exhaust; since the system does not evaporate all the
liquids (acids) caused by the combustion, after some time they end up oxidizing and corroding the
internal parts of the system.
It is also important to bear in mind that the life of exhausts is related to the type of riding
vehicles undergo. When there is too much driving in the city, but split into short periods each time,
the exhaust system cannot manage to evaporate the acids generated by the operation of the engine, and
the extent of its life is harmed.
Look at some symptoms that usually affect exhausts and their most usual solutions:
