Ixil carbon exhaust....
on: June 03, 2013, 05:38:07 PM
Hi peeps,

Well, I popped into Doble Honda near Croydon today to order a new Givi airflow (as per this sites recommendations) and there was a Crostourer pulling up outside. I thought it was a fully blown Moto GP bike, but no - t'was a CT with this exhaust:

http://www.motorcycle-exhausts.co.uk/IXIL_Euroline_Carbon_Silencer_HONDA_VFR1200X_Crosstourer_201213--product--15677.html

Feck me, burble or what? I put my bike up on ebay at the weekend, but pulled the listing as I thought me and the bike needed more time together!

As a way of an apology to the red baron, I got her the Ixil carbon exhaust. Will update when I've fitted it. And it's very unlike me to get an after market exhaust - I just don't get the people who want to be anti-social!

So - I am now officially a hooligan.... :431:

That pipe looks really nice on the black CT  :028:. Any chance of a sound clip when you get it fitted?

Glad to hear that you've decided not to sell the CT yet too.

Hi Telbert - the can should arrive today and I'll have it bolted on at the weekend. I will definitely put up a sound clip.  Maybe it will bring the soul I'm searching for....?

It won't do any harm mate. Half the reason that i loved my 955 Tiger was because of the TOR exhaust i fitted to it. It sounded like a bloody sewing machine with the standard exhaust  :110:

Has anyone got the Ixil?

{EDIT} - because I am an idiot.

I meant to say, has anyone got the Mivv?
