Purchasing a New Muffler for a KTM Husaberg Motorbike
Adding any parts to a motorbike can be a daunting task. Components can be expensive, so care must be taken to make the best decision possible. Look, feel, and even sound factor in, as well as function. Before switching out a muffler for a different model, motorbike owners should consider the following:
Large mufflers have been known to melt pants when poorly positioned. This happens because the protective side panel that covers the stock exhaust has to been omitted to accommodate for something too big for the bike’s frame to handle. Buyers have to decide whether the large muffler’s overall attributes outweigh the side panel cover’s absence. If not, there are smaller mufflers which present a better physical fit.

Finding a part on eBay that matches in style and function can be easy with the thousands of products available.

The noise from the exhaust is a big factor when choosing large motorcycle mufflers, though this is not to everyone’s taste. Some enjoy more noise, while other riders try to keep things as quiet as possible. This plays a large role in component selection. In addition, local authorities often set noise mandates that should be considered before purchase.
The muffler’s appearance has a big impact on the overall style of a bike. Some of the common options for finishes include chrome, stainless steel, nickel, and perforated finishes with texture. Buyers should compare the impact different finishes have on their bikes before making a final decision.
