At first glance, the silencer points to the elongated part of the exhaust pipe. Moreover, it serves to evacuate the exhaust gases. Besides, the motorcycle silencer reduces engine noise and limits noise pollution. This is because this chamber in the exhaust line also slows down and cools the gases while acting as a sound absorber for the noisy engine.
On the other hand, motorcyclists tend to change the original silencer to an approved silencer to increase the noise level and the sound of the engine. However, the noise level of a motorcycle is subject to regulatory limitations. Moreover, failure to comply with this limitation is punishable by a 5th class penalty (€ 1,500).
Type of exhaust silencer of a Harley-Davidson
First, there are different forms of silencers and several materials (aluminum, carbon, stainless steel, stainless steel, titanium, titanium ...). So you should always look for the part that best suits your tastes and your motorcycle.
It appears in fact, original type silencers are often characterized by their large volume, because of the stresses that manufacturers are subjected to.
Besides, you can change the silencer, like all other motorcycle parts (clamps, valves, catalyst, chassis, saddle, indicators, brakes, end pieces, stainless steel manifold, etc.). Thus, you allow yourself to personalize it and have a unique model.
Mini glossary of the silencer :
Mini lexique du silencieux :
Bolt-on : silencer with a machined flange connecting directly to the original manifolds with screws
Slip-on : silencer connected to the original manifold using a sleeve
DB-killer : removable sound attenuator
Cartography : injection times stored in the computer and determining the carburation
Exhaust silencer: how does it work ?
First, the exhaust manifold collects the gases that go to one or more mufflers. Thus, this chamber slows down and expands the burnt gases to reduce the noise and the temperature of the engine at the outlet.
It appears in fact, the complete exhaust line unifies the flow of exhaust gases from the engine, following a wave-by-cycle pattern. Thus, the silencer baffle clogs the exhaust pipe, reducing the diameter of the outlet. Hence, the speed of the exhaust gases decreases, thanks to the particulate filter.
Also, the muffler usually consists of :
On the other hand, the noise reducer is surrounded by rock wool, for better sound insulation.
Finally, the muffler harmonizes the sound of the bike and brings elegance to the machine, while helping to keep the engine running smoothly.
Silencer / Pipe Pseudo Left chrome for Bagger
First, your HolyDeath store offers you the best spare parts for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, including the muffler.
Thus, the pseudo-left chrome silencer for Bagger “95 - 2008 is suitable for the Touring model. It appears in fact, this spare part is for use with certain Bassani Road Rage 2 in 1 system. Thus, it attaches to the rear exhaust pipe and the original left muffler bracket. Because of this, you can enjoy a motorcycle with a True Dual look.
By the way, you can find matching megaphone silencers with billet end caps. However, you should always opt for a stainless steel silencer with approval for a pollution-controlled motorcycle. Likewise, discoloration of exhaust pipes and mufflers results from tuning, cam timing, carburetor jets, engine overheating...
On the other hand, installing new exhaust systems can change the air-fuel mixture of your motorcycle. Thus, you should always check the condition of the air filter.
Finally, you should never install a cantilever silencer without an anchor. Indeed, it risks breaking the exhaust manifold. Likewise, you should always watch for access to the oil filter and the drain plug.
