ANODIZING RACING full exhaust review

Recommended Posts

Grant31781

I uploaded a video so you can hear how my bike runs with the exhaust without the baffle  Exhaust sound. 100% stock except the exhaust.

I did put high temp Rtv on the slip joint so it would not leak. Not sure if a leak there would cause popping.

Sorry the sound quality is crappy wind noise with my phone in my pocket.

Thats weird ive had pops form the day i installed it. I have a 2017 im not sure if that has anything to do with it but even with the ejk i have a pop or 2 on decel.

Hmm. Thanks Grant. I just used the old rings for seals. Maybe I should have used sealant.

i have it out but the tune online has it for the baffle in 

 

Thanks RiderFZ. I installed the EJK today and put the settings to those shown for the Yoshi on EJK site. Power seems ok but I am still getting bad backfire. Any tweeking you had to do? I know I have the baffle in...

Also the engine light is on. Do I need a O2 sensor Delete? is your check engine light on?

Doh.... Yes that is it.  I looked up that part and was like 'yup, forgot to put that back on.." t's late and I have to drive to work in the morning on the bike. Do you think that can wait till tomorrow or does that have to be done asap.

Thanks Rider. So are you saying that would fix the engine light issue without an O2 sensor delete?

yea thats why its on as well as why your dash has that funny code on it. ejk recommends you unplug the o2 sensor tho so it does not fight the fuel tuner for fuel

Ok thanks a bunch. I would have never guessed that and it was very helpful you knew right away what my dumb but did lol.

I will reconnect the air intake temp sensor tomorrow after work unless anyone chimes in between now and then and says thats horrible idea.

I reused the header gaskets. I put grease on them so they would stick to the head. The rtv is for the muffler slip joint.

Was able to get some time to reconnect temp sensor this morning. Engine light is now off. Thanks.

Still getting much backfiring between 4000-3000 RPM on engine breaking decel. What settings have you been playing with to tune them out? Is it the green or G/B settings?

ill have to check my settings when i get home i have all my notes on the whiteboard in my garage. From what ive read there isnt a sure way to get rid of ALL the pops on some of the older years (17' and under). Someone elses 18 with no tuner didnt pop at all with the exhaust so im assuming its something you need a full flash to get rid of. Someone told me the injectors lower duty cycle on closed throttle or something and thats also why the engine brake is harsh as well.

I am not getting any pops or backfire with this pipe. Did you recheck the header bolt torque?

Thats a good question. I did get a torque wrench from Harbor Freight lol. I could check this cause popping is like popcorn as I decel between 4000-3000 RPM. No settings seem to fix it on the EJK

So after some digging i think ive found the answer. The reason there is a backfire from 3-4k at decel is because on the 17 and older models, the injectors lower the dusty cycle as the throttle closes and runs a check to see if it should switch to eco mode to put it in simple terms. The sudden wide open or acceleration to closed throttle causes gas to get trapped an boom you have the popcorn backfires until you get back on it or stop. The flash kit from rev zilla has a setting to turn Injector Decel Cut to false and it apparently stops this and allows a much less harsh engine brake. But the pops are nothing to worry about. the bike isnt running lean and hopefully my afr gauge will be here soon and ill be able to find the sweet spot for the ejk,

Thanks but if thats the case why so many reviews that ejk got rid of backfiring? I have the 2019 model too. Its way too much poocorn pop to be acceptable. They are not loud pops but crackle pops lol.

 Ive had plenty of aftermarket exhausts and a little pop here and there is fine. Its definitely possible i have a leak though. I dont think i can return a used EJK can I? If i could maybe i would and try the ftecu.

You have the 02 unplugged? It sounds like the ejk isn’t working

I think that thing sounds pretty dang good, and runs smooth as can be.  Just in case you decide to put the baffle back in, would you mind to post another video for comparison, please.  Thanks!

Sarah,

 

Sure I will make a video. The baffle is very easy to swap in. One screw.

Yes 02 is unplugged. Ejk seems ro be working cause when i change settings it definitely changes fuel/air ratio lol. 

Also i think it gained hp after ejk. No complaints on power. Just the pops. 

Is there a good way to confirm if you have exhaust leak? I used the old header washers and used no sealant on that or the slip joint. Could just be leaking.

This exhaust sounds much better in person too. Ive had nice yoshi pipes and MRD before and this sounds just as good as far as i can tell. Im waiting to find another FZ/MT 07 rider locally that has a yoshi so i can compare but i doubt there would be much difference.

look for black spots around the header. take a small piece of paper and hold it with long needle nose. while the bike is running move the paper around the outside of the flanges and see if any air is blowing it. Its oldschool but will work for any noticeable leaks. I have on the muffler joint and i never got around to fixing it and it tuned a spring black. Note, keep watch on the swing arm and axle nut as they will bronze over if you dont clean them (exhaust points almost right at it on mine)

Here is the video: Exhaust sound with baffle

I put the phone in the same pocket so it would make a fair comparison.

Oh my goodness, lordy lordy lordy!  I don't know how you could ask for anything to sound much better.  Has anybody taken a look inside the muffler?  I think back to my dualsport days, and I don't look forward to repacking an exhaust.  Not a constant issue by any means, but the chore will roll around more often than you think, if you tend put on the miles.  Thanks again Grant, enjoy!!
