The Tekmo Racing Titanium System is comprised of three key items which will assist in greater weight reduction as well offer greater performance. Their unique header design with a crossover pipe will allow exhaust pressure to become more balanced by reducing the amount of exhaust gasses that would normally be forced back to the cylinder before the piston begins its intake cycle on the downward stroke. Without this crossover pipe, the exhaust gasses that made their way back to the engine during valve over lap would be forced back into the cylinder and into the intake ducts, which can delay the intake process thus reducing torque at that given RPM. We know what you are thinking, what does this actually do for me? The crossover tube will help broaden the RPM range by allowing the cylinder to work more efficiently.
Next in line, the beautifully put together mid pipe which will connect the header to the muffler. Tekmo had taken an extra step to include packing inside of this mid pipe to help retain back pressure while simultaneously reducing decibel levels. This mid pipe alone is substantially lighter than the OE catalyst while also allowing exhaust gases to exit more freely, say hello to a torque increase! The muffler is composed of Titanium with a Carbon Fiber end cap, it is a true dual core muffler which produces a unique and refined deep tone that barks when the throttle is whipped open.
With improved exhaust flow and performance paired with reduced weight and temperatures, the Tekmo Racing Titanium Exhaust system is the perfect performance upgrade for your 790 or 890 Adventure.
For the best colorization, after installing the header and BEFORE starting the bike, it's a good idea to wipe entire header down with rubbing alcohol to remove any grease or fingerprints from the system. Any grease or finger oils that are on the header may show up after warming up the pipe.
