NOTE: This slip-on system will NOT fit CB500X or Pre 2016 CBR500R/CB500F without the use of a different mid pipe.
Race-Tech exhaust range was the first series of silencers designed with the new diamond-shaped section.
This design replaced (quite completely, but not at all) in the past years the older silencers sections, oval and cylindrical. The advanced profile (looks like a diamond, with smooth corners) makes it possible to reduce dimensions with respect to an exhaust with a more traditional shape and with an equivalent section surface. This feature is important in reducing weight and dimensions, increasing the internal volume with excellent advantages in noise damping and high performance. Internal structure is generally made in stainless steel, TIG welding.
The internal parts, the sections, the exit pipe and the rear endcap are designed to allow for the smoother flow of exhaust gasses possible reducing back-pressure-generated losses.
Included with this pipe is the mid-pipe required for installation.
