Result for low priced Motad exhaust

Post by liverpool_f_ on Tue 09 Feb 2016, 12:24 pm

Just thought some people on here would be interested to know that I picked up a brand new  pair of Motad down pipes for £93 delivered. Thats almost half the price from most sellers. Motad list their own exhausts on ebay sometimes under the name motad1 but they don't use the words "Motad" or "exhaust" in their ebay titles so they don't show up in peoples searches. I know I missed out on them before in my searches. I was the only bidder so won for £79 + postage. Also they had an end can and a full system that didn't sell so I guess no one is finding them.

The listing was titled;

Honda CB500 R-Y2 Downpipes and Collector

Worth a look because I think that price is probably closer to what they go for second hand rather than new.

Any suggestions as to what can I should put on there now?

good price, big saving over what I paid for mine..... in my opinion I love my Beowulf one (if you can get one) and Delkevic would be my 2nd choice but I'd imagine most people would say Fuel one.

Wow, thanks for this. Very good. I will soon be in need of some new downpipes so will definitely keep a look out. A set of those on wemoto.com is £167 including postage!

£167 would have gotten you the full system with end can on another one of their auctions. Well worth it if you want an OE style replacement. I decided I wanted to keep my options open for more belligerent exhausts!

Thanks for the info just grabbed a set of downpipes for myself. like you I was the only bidder so £93 inc postage great buy especially as my LH exhaust flange has pretty much disintegrated.

Many thanks

Be wary of those downpipes @wornsprokets. They don't have the mounting bracket just before it meets the link pipe. It might not make a difference but I prefer the belt & braces approach & these bikes do vibe a bit.

I'm not aware of blackwidow but if it helps anyone from the research I did the ones to stay away from were made by Sandy Bike Spares.

Just had a look at the blackwidow/Sandy Bike Spares and it would appear that the link pipe has the bottom supporting bracket on that rather than on the downpipes. So the link pipe is longer than normal form the images so maybe you're only able to use their end cans depending on the diameter?

Was it this listing?

If so, the mid bracket definately isn't there.  The link pipe does have a centre stand stop bracket though.

If you wan't decent stainless downpipes with all the brackets it's best to stick with Motad or Delkevic.

I wonder if they're old stock and just mild steel rather than stainless.......... can't see why they would be selling stuff so much cheaper on Ebay.

Latest listing has gone up to £90 + delivery, full system is up for £170.
Doesn't actually say what flavour steel it is.

Happy to confirm this is still going. I picked up a full system for £200 today (apologies to the other bidder if you're on here). Worth keeping an eye on if you're in the market. If only Hagon did the same for shocks...

they usually go unsold on ebay at £169.99 but it's still a lot cheaper than on their website.

Yeah it's a shame someone else got in there. Needed it though, my current one is mostly made of rust now (not too bad for 14 years I suppose). Still a decent saving compared to wemoto.

motad sell their stainless systems on ebay when they don't meet their strict quality controls.

I bought a brand new, full stainless system for £159. well cheaper than normal. I already have a full stainless system fitted but this was too good to ignore.

all it has are a couple of tiny black marks from welding on it, but they cannot be seen if fitted

Good to know. If the discount is purely down to cosmetics, I'd be interested.

I'm on the lookout for stainless downpipes. Could be something to have a go at while the snow is here. In Denmark it has suddenly gotten quite nippy and I have decided that this year I'll actively stay clear of any salt and snow. So when the council sends out their salt-spreader-lorries, that's it! Curfew...

Still, lots of stuff to do in the shed. Stanchion seals+oil, engine oil+filter, two new tires, cleaning the air-filter, having a beer with the neighbour and putting a few hours into my little engine rebuild project. Looking forward to quietly tinkering.

they don't use the words "Motad" or "exhaust" in their ebay titles so they don't show up in peoples searches. I know I missed out on them before in my searches




Well, you must have done "an exhaustive" search!!! Wink
