    Time For A New Pipe

    Post by 2ToneJake on Fri Aug 31, 2012 8:13 am

    my revolver pipe on the px is about on its last legs, it bottoms out pretty much everytime i go up the steep ramp on our driveway and is bashed to hell on the underside so i think im gonna change it sometime before brid

    question is, what pipe to go for?

    running a 166 malossi top end, 24 SI carb and wider back tyre - want something pretty torquey and good for 2s up cruising aswell

    If you want loads of low down torque then go for either a SIP road pipe/sito+, or for a more mid range pipe I'd say go for a PM.

    But bear in mind that a 166 wasn't really designed with low to mid range power or cruising in mind - it's a malossi it's all about the top end...

    i know, i think i picked the wrong kit tbh, i love screaming it in 2nd n 3rd but when i get into 4th i just chill out and plod along

    the noise of the sito plus does me tits in, rode me mums scoot with one on and weren't keen - might have a look into the sip road though

    TBF that's my plan for the P2. Any idea when it's going into production?

    I Managed to rust through the sito+ in about 12 months. Wouldn't mind but I've taken off and repainted the fucking thing twice

    I'm sure this German company called pipe design make a pipe that is super torquey. But the thing is with a tourquy pipe I'm sure they are usually longer and have worse ground clearance.

    You ain't ever going to find something that's perfect. Depends what you want more stump pulling torque or good feline clearance. Or you could just buy a box pipe, and that mb one does look sweet.

    I think the mb clubman will be manufactured around the new season. Im sure they were in talks of producing them for 125/t5 and 200. Even a smallframe one which im interested in seeing.

    Have heard good things about the SIP road. They're not an expansion chamber, more like a sito performance wise I.e. a good response lower down and allowing for a few more revs at top end.

    The SIP road compares pretty poorly to the MB clubman, they also need repainting every 5 miles
