Exhaust smells a bit funny on first start up

Recommended Posts

username
So yesterday I installed the L3XB and started the bike up. Shortly after I could smell something burning. I noticed when I first looked at the exhaust that there was a little weld spatter in it and some sort of oily substance in the header pipes. Is this normal for a new exhaust? Did anybody have any other situations likes this with a new exhaust? I'll keep you posted if my bike lights on fire while I'm riding it.

I'd day its normal and will go away... a combination of oils from manufacturing and the packing material in the muffler.

That oil will burn off, it's not going to hurt anything.

It's normal...it's all the production junk getting burned off...totally normal, wouldn't be surprised if ppl say it smells like burnt cooking spray, which is used as a lubricant to make exhaust... I used to make car exhaust systems and catalytic converters...

Ya it's better already just had to put some kilometers on it. There was a fair bit of junk in there my word! It was a good idea to take the baffles out so it could clear all the junk out. There is a catalytic converter also.
