Hi guys,
Just a short one, does any of you guys clean the exhaust muffler??

If so, how it is done?

I'm having an Akrapovic on my 91 Zx7.

Thanks.

If you are talking about the exterior of the muffler, Akrapovic's instructions say to clean my titanium exhaust with WD40 if necessary, but I usually just wash it with the same soap and water I wash the whole bike with.

Oops... sorry I am concern about the carbon deposit inside the muffler. Does the deposit affect the performance? Does it need to be opened up for cleaning to remove the deposit?? Or are there some solvent to pour in and flush it out.
Thanks Strider007.

I don't know of anybody who cleans the inside of the pipe unless they are opening it up to replace the packing. If anything, I would say to use a dry stiff bristled (not wire) brush to scrub the deposits off, and then start the engine to blow it all out. I wouldn't recommend pouring anything in it though, as this would saturate the packing.
