Thanks for sharing this Umoth.

I've just ordered a Danmoto 2 into 1 Exhaust system and this post will be very useful to refer to.

You’re welcome.
Fitting it helped when it came time to fit a new exhaust to my bikes bigger, older, brother.

Received my Exhaust and am going to fit it on Wednesday.

Did you have any problems with corroded bolts?
In particular I'm thinking of the bolts holding the pipes into the cylinder and also removal of the O2 sensor.

Finally, does removal of the catalytic converter have any adverse affects on performance ?

Thanks Umoth,

John Journeyman.

On really cold days, sub zero, when the injection system is running very rich, it stinks.
But once upon a time all cars smelt like that on cold days.

Rusty bolts, 2 of the header bolts were rusty.
On one I had to use a bolt-extractor hammered on to it, the head was no longer a hex, just a rusty nubbin.

Performance wise, I think it is a bit quicker, but the real difference is throttle response and gear change.
I can now blip the throttle on down changes and instantly match engine speed to road speed.
Up changes can be made equally instant.

It also back-fires a lot, I’m suspicious I fire flames out the back on occasions on over-run over 5krpm, but that does seem to deter tailgating.....

You will need ear-plugs, it is LOUD.

Put mine on and had a bit of work to make it fit.

Before it warms up it ran poorly without the baffle, but it runs much better with the baffle fitted.

Yeah, Ive got a bit of popping on the over run too.

Overall its working fine, and its also much easier to access the chain now.
I'm pretty pleased with it.

I would recommend to fit a piggyback if u change the exhaust, loud bangs, back firing and else aint quiet normal. Changing the exhaust is only half the job

I can confirm that the XG1 is a problem for the MOT.
Got a different system from another company on order, that is claimed to be street legal.
If that fails the MOT as well I hope I can send it back, as it would be sale of goods act. If it fails the MOT then it is not exactly street legal, as advertised.
