Maybe someone slipped a hot dog in your tailpipe. :D On a serious note, every new bike I have had would have a funky smelling exhaust for the first few hundred miles. Although I cannot say that any of them smelled like burning hot dogs!

Yeah, my slipon did the same thing. Been used to that "new exhaust smell" as I've put aftermarket exhausts on all my vehicles.

I had just done the needle shim mod, so I was a little nervous myself. I was about to take the tank off again before I remembered that I had just installed the slipon.

Strange smelling exhaust fumes?

G'day all,
I've recently noticed that the fumes from exhaust have taken on a different scent since I changed oil/radiator fluid/exhaust. The bike also feels like it's struggling a lot more when riding at high revs and taking off.

I'm running Motul 5100 10W50 and the bike has 4100km on it. The exhaust was changed from a MGP Growler to just a generic aftermarket sports exhaust.

Cheers

HMF Slip-on question

I recently purchased a HMF racing slip on exhaust for my 09 250r.
I put it on yesterday and everything seemed like it was working good.
But today when i got back from riding, there was
an excess amount of exhaust smoke coming out of the pipe and it had somewhat of a burnt smell. In addition, there is a little water drops from the bottom of the exhaust.
Is there something wrong with my HMF or is this weirdly normal?

Was it slightly cold today? Water droplets would be indicative of condensation I would think. And the burning smell/weird colored exhaust would be normal as well as it's probably burning off anything on it.

I would agree with CylonMech.

The burning smell could just be from the exhaust getting hot for the first time(s). Think after you put exhaust wrap on a header/downpipe. It smells kinda sweet like pancakes for the first 500 miles or so.

Water condensation could be the cause for the water droplets if it's actually water.
