Needs some insight or resolution to my exhaust fume flow…

:icon_stud

I have the 03 cbr 600rr. I love the look of the undertail exhaust. My issue with it is that the exhaust fumes seem to come up over the tail and onto me. Especially on my lower back near my waist. It smells like I was standing with my back right at the outlet. And that’s just after a 8 mile ride to work on county roads. As I set here at work I just smell the fumes on my jacket and my work shirt.

I have a PCIII with a brand new Jardine RT-1 exhaust with 10 miles on it. I had a older Two Bros and replaced it with the jardine figuring maybe that was it. But I was wrong.

It’s a nuisance to carry extra clothes around and I bought the bike salvage and fixed it like new and do not want to part with it.

Any suggestions?

I think it's normal. Just gotta get used to it, or store your jacket somewhere further away.

Regardless of exhaust brand this problem wont go away just like the
yellowish residue found all over the tail light and edge of the the tail cowl

New exhausts will smell a little, see if the problem goes away after a bit more riding.

either ride faster or buy some stronger deodrant.:icon_lol:...I;m afraid its par of the course..If you wear a textile jacket perhaps a leather one would resist the odour more effectively....

burning dinosaurs... thats awesome.. i might steal it lol




yep, its normal.


So far i've found that ALOT girls have liked the mix of exhaust and a couple other components on me (deodorant + cologne) but i might keep it a secret as to which kinds

took me about a year to find a good combo... my g/f loves it and i've had people around me after riding that have said they smelled the exhaust but it actually smelled good with whatever it was I had


oh yea, and Leo Vince exhaust smell is better :all_cohol

spill the secret man!

leathers do cut down quite a bit with the exhaust smell. with my mesh jacket the smell is horrible so i tend to wear the leathers more often. bringing extra clothes in a backpack is the best alternative, if this is an option for your work.

Trying not to thread jack here... but i have the same question. Would a rear seat cowl help eliminate the vacuum behind me and thus eliminate some of the fumes? Is there anyone who has a rear seat cowl that still gets the strong smell? (BTW i have a full yosh from the headers back on an 04 600)

Thanks!

it's unstoppable, only girlie men fret over such things.

Make sure your exhaust like many others is not leaking at the slip on joint by adding some hi-temp copper grease.

I'm not "fretting" over anything, but thank you for your input. I am hoping to hear from someone who has an 03-07 600rr with a rear seat cowl that STILL has the fume smell on a regular basis. Any takers?

Thanks in advance

take it to honda and get it fixed right... probably a loose ring or something that is making the oil burn?
