Exhaust silencer

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I just finished riding my bike and when i killed it the silencer started to smoke.

What could be the problem?

Also, i have not yet put in the new silencer packing as i just got it 2 days ago, so inform me if old oily packing is the problem

Thanks

it could be old oily packing, or it could be something got spilled on the exhaust or is leaking and flying back on it and burning off. how hot was you bike? ive seen old old packing with dried oil almost catch fire before so maybe thats it?

This happens to my sons bike everyonce and in a while, the pipe gets loaded from not being ridden hard or lugging the motor. Unspent gas and oil( almost all oil) builds up in the exhaust chamber(not alot, but enough). Then the bike gets ridden really hard and the unspent oil starts to heat up and burn off. then you get the smoking pipe. Keep riding hard, on the pipe to clean it out.
