2016 fj09 exhaust

Recommended Posts

Um. I may in fact have just that. I’m receiving a new full Yoshi exhaust to replace a warranty header issue I had. Long story short Babbitt’s does not want my original (600 miles on original) exhaust back. The warranty issue was a small hole in the header weld. Nothing that could not be easily fixed, yet something that deserved a warranty swap. The system was basically brand new. I live in Webster NY, so shipping would not kill you. I should have it in the next two days. I’m still not fully convinced I want to part with it, but if your interested let me know. It’s a full R77 system. Sounds really nice.

I have an original '16 exhaust just sitting here. I got my bike used with 3300 miles on it and it had already been swapped out for a black widow system. no idea how many actual miles in, I would guess just a few, but don't know.

Been texting all day with Joe. I have a  conundrum. New exhaust showed up today. Freshly manufactured. Babbitts warrantied my exhaust (I have another thread to update on the Babbitts warranty issue) and it came today. First, the placard now says Tracer and not FJ. A nit pick I know, but I was born the be particular. Second, and more conundrum-ish is the finish on the header. For some reason Yoshi went back to a silver power coat on the header.  Booo. I so much like the patina on the header what I have now. If baked in properly, it has a multitude of colors I don’t think I’ll get from the new one. I think I’m going to the header on, break it in properly and see what’s what. Either way, I’m thinking If Joe buys this bike he’s going to get a great deal on an exhaust. Babbitts did me a solid, I’m passing on the favor when I land on something. 

Thoughts anyone.

Meaning dump what I have and add the new header?  I was never good with color, not to mention I’m slightly colorblind in the blue/green “Duetan” region. Lol. Truth.

Um I need glasses. Works and Worst are not the same. But due to beers I still confused.

It's just an optional purchase and or service they provide... But yeah, nothing special, just a cosmetic look...

Ah. Gotcha. Yes. Read about that before I had the beer. I think that’s only for the exhaust and not the header. However, beer has proven me incorrect and wrong at the same time.

Off topic: best pizza I ever had was from a place on Empire Blvd in Webster, NY. Right beside the frozen custard place (Abbott's I think). Love Webster!

We have something like 32 pizza joints in a 3 square mile area - we Webter-ites love the pie..  Cordell's Pizza i think is the place you are referring to -
