Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

mini or midi

Post by mcalvert39 on Sat 06 Jun 2015, 7:53 pm

Thinking of splashing out soon. MOT is due in July so its going to get a new set of boots (probably avons).
But while im feeling all generous I might go for a new FUEL exhaust.

But WHICH ONE!?

So much choice! My personal favourite is the Diablo, oval in coloured titanium,, but it aint cheap!
Once ive decided, which size will fit? the MINI or the MIDI? Or both?

Any size listed on the CB500 page (http://www.fuelexhausts.com/exhausts/bike-and-range/honda/cb500-fv-fy-1996-03) will fit. 

There's a chance that the bike will run a fraction leaner with the mini than the midi. I've had both over the years but haven't really managed to compare whether it ran differently from one to the other. I decided that the proportions of the midi size suit the CB500 slightly better to my eye, but they both look and sound excellent.

Iirc if you want it to be road legal, it needs the midi can (& the baffle in)

No, the mini is also road legal when the baffle's fitted. They do a race can whose size is 'MicroMini' - this one of course is not road legal!
