View Full Version : Force Exhaust

06-07-2009, 09:02 PM
Yes, I know there are hundreds of thousands of exhaust posts on here. I'm sorry to beat a dead horse or wake the sleeping giant or whatever........ What I need is some up to date professional advise:

I currently own a force exhaust system origionally installed on my bike by Nallin racing in 2003 when the converted my xb9r to an xb12r.
I bought the bike last month from a guy who dyno tested his own custom exhaust (actually just long headers). They are powerful and loud as hell! Just worried about back pressure issues to my valves.

The bike only has 1500 miles on it and I am unsure of how many miles were put on either exhaust (the stock got changed to the force at 300mi).

Now, I would like to put on the force pipe again, bit the mounting brackets are broken at the welds (the pipe from 03 had two circle brackets welded to the pipe. These brackets fit in the two stock "crescent shaped" muffler mounts on the bike.

I called Nallin and they said to just buy a new pipe.

No shop will weld the brackets back on for me.
I have a friend who is a master welder- I can have him do the welding and I can mount the pipe myself, but is it worth it?

Should I just buy a new Force pipe?
Should I forget Force and look at a different exhaust system?

Any advise helps-

Thanks guys!

If you have a friend who is a master welder why not have him weld it [confused]
Force exhausts are really nice but if you got the money to fly around go ahead and get a new one.
Force is one of the better exhausts for hp gains

I don't have the money to throw, but if I need to I'll starve for a month to help my baby breath better-

My "friend" is the kinda guy who will "get around to it". It's pretty much a pain in the ass either way!

Well if I was you I would try to take advantage of the exhaust if you think it can be repaired. (Post pictures if you want advice). New exhausts are expensive no matter what. Especially headers!! Brand new I believe, Force is about $700.

Where are you located? I have done every kind of welding you can think of and do a lot of custom fabricating. I can possibly help you out. Also you have the force exhaust and what else? You mentioned long headers. I have been thinking about getting a set of these my self. Would you be interested in selling yours? Please email me and we can hopefully help each other out. tuneport67ss@hotmail.com Just get with me and let me know. I will be more than happy to weld up your other pipes.

That is a Ti-Force. Not the Force pipe JakeCheez means.

I guess this is it...

with the force pipe your best bet is to have a welder on stand by because they are known to crack.

Not the newer version, like the one in the pic. 15000 miles and counting. Pay atention to springs, front hanger ( can get loose due to vibes ) and stud nuts.

You will need a complete mapping. Also some silicone sheet for the front mount, it wears.

Great exhaust once tuned.

jake- any chance you can copy your maps from that so we can add it to the buellmods site?

That would be great. Currently I am in the process of remapping with a wideband sensor-controler from Innovate.

So any help is welcome!
