To ensure many miles of safe, trouble free use, please follow the recommended procedures:
• Always read through the model specific instructions prior to installation.
• Remus exhausts are designed to work with standard fuelling settings and will give trouble free, smooth running without the need to refuel.
It is not recommended to use aftermarket air filters in conjunction with Remus exhausts without also fitting a fuelling device to compensate for any possible change in fuel / air ratio.
• When installing any Remus exhaust, initially fit all parts loosely and make sure that they are aligned in the correct position before finally tightening. This is particularly important with full systems which should be fitted loosely, aligned properly and then tightened at the rear first and then finally at the cylinder head. Failure to do this can result in components being fitted under tension which, combined with vibration, can reduce their life expectancy.
• To prevent the fitting of Remus silencers under tension (Which can cause premature failure) it is sometimes necessary to adjust the rear mounting bracket to suit the individual motorcycle. Do so by adjusting it until it aligns and mounts the silencer without any stress or tension placed on the captive bolts.
• When removing OEM exhaust valves, the usual procedure is to remove the operating cables but leave the servo motor in place, which prevents the ECU from detecting a fault.
• Clean titanium silencers with WD-40 or similar.
• With prolonged use over time, the internal packing material in absorption type silencers will begin to degrade and will require replacement. Failure to replace worn out packing material can allow excessive heat to build up which can eventually damage the outer sleeve of the silencer.
Heat build-up can also be exaggerated by certain conditions such as the use of luggage systems which sometimes block cooling airflow and rolling road dynamometers where the engine is working hard with no natural moving air cooling to the exhaust.
An early indicator of silencer packing degradation is an increase in noise level which, if not remedied, will then be followed by slight discolouration of the outer sleeve; continued use would then result in permanent sleeve damage.
To prevent heat damage, ensure that your silencer is maintained periodically with a readily available repack kit.
