Brituro Exhaust silencers

Post  teapot on Fri 27 Jun - 18:12

I was after a new exhaust for one of my T80's so contacted Brituro as I've had one of theirs in the past and the quality was good. After a few emails back and forth, the chap confirmed that they don't have any left, and don't intend making any more (not cost effective unless it's an order for a large number of them).

So that leaves only two options - either a very expensive genuine one, or the cheapo £40-ish ones that appear on ebay and some other parts sellers. I've also used one of these in the past, but the angle of the end that goes into the cylinder head didn't match the head, so i had to use exhaust paste to make it seal properly against the gasket, which would inevitably start leaking after a few months and have to be refitted.

Are there any other viable options?

Thought that may have been the case with Brituro when I rang them they gave me a price but the woman on the phone said she would check with the boss & get back to me, she never did. They still list it though on their web site.

Motor Cycle Products do the correct system for the T80 at   £45.54 plus £3.95 p&p. I have bought one of these & they are good quality, & it came in a couple of days. Good supplier
Its not worth buying a genuine Yamaha one at £200 or what ever they are now. You can buy 4 pattern ones at that price.
The same one also fits the T50.
