stainless steel ehaust
Hi guys, Approx 12 months ago, when my steel exhaust reached it's sell by date on my 145 twin spark, I was advised by the local exhaust centre to fit a stainless steel exhaust system which carries a lifetime guarantee. However, after the new stainless steel system was fitted, I realised the exhaust tone was a lot louder (some would say sportier) but I found the noise was to my mind, excessive.
I complained to the exhaust centre about this but they said I should give it some time to build up some carbon in the system and it should quiet down and although it has quietened, it is still noisy especially when accelerating up an incline.
I wonder if any other members have experience of this type of exhaust system (stainless steel).
