Default burning exhaust valves?

can you burn up an exhaust valve if you are running an open pipe? (as in no muffler) someone said something about that today, i know you can run an open header on cars and not burn up your valves i just didnt know if it was different with a bike, if it matters i have a 2000 zx6-r.

i think without a long explanation, the answer is basically no.


but, why would you want to do that?

You really shouldnt run without an exhaust system. The bike is designed to run with the back pressure the system provides.

i know you are supposed to get it tuned after you change the exhaust, but i am going to have a custom pipe made with fewer baffles in it. im still running the exhaust i just dont have the muffler on it. I am going to be taking it down to him so he can make his measurements, and it is kind of a far ride. i didnt think it would do anything to the valves.

Youd do more damage running without an air filter.

you can burn seats, but it takes a long time to do it. 10s of thousands of miles depending on the tune you have.
