I fitted a ZX10 exhaust to my XT600e. Initially worked well and sounded nice. Then on a recent trip it started making a turbo whistle. Stripped it. Insides still good. Repacked it real tight.

The whistle is still there and driving me insane. What could be the causes ?

Suig of blaas hy nie waar hy in die header in steek? Dis mos al waar hy geluide kan maak.

Hy is hoed geseël. Mens hoor nie die geluid daar nie net agter by die uitlaat.

Ek weet van watter geluid jy praat. Die ou Supertraps het dit soms gemaak. Klink soos n plaatjie of iets wat toesuig aan die binne kant?

Het hom heel gestrip. Die cage is in goeie toestand. Niks gebreek of los nie.

Do you remember those OEM KLR exhausts, that used to lose a baffle and sound like a VW Beetle. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

On this exhaust the insides are intact. I still have the oem exhaust. Going to fit it this weekend and see if its the can causing the whistle or somewhere down the connector and header pipe

So, is it still whistling at you? Maybe it's now wanting to be one of those Audi supercars that always went "Chi-Chi-Chi" on the over-run.

Dalk 'n baie fyn krakie in manifold of iewers?
Ek het so Navara laasweek gehad, daai ding klink soos Mimi Coertze op fyndraai as hy Revs kry.
Toe net BAAAAIE fyn krakie in manifold.
Ek eis om te dink hoe jy weet hoe Tannie Mimi op daai oomblik geklink het. 🤣

Ek dag toe sal die laaste baffle uit haal n sien. Die kort weergawe is ek skryf die exhaust geheel af. Sit toe die oem exhaust op. En hy loop sommer mooi soos die fabriek jom ontwerp het.
