Is this the FI version? If yes, I would suggest you check with your mechanic if a remap is required for this silencer. The silencer might improve mid-range grunt.

More than the pollution norms, I should be worried about the sound it creates. I understand you want a better sounding exhaust, but on long distance trips it is irritating to have a loud exhaust ringing in your ears. I hope the sound does not increase correspondingly with the revs rather than saturating at a tolerable level. You don't want a bike sounding all show but no go. Loud exhaust will definitely attract traffic police.

As for affecting engine, it shouldn't. Use it for a few hundred kms and check for smoke, random sparks from the silencer. If yes, there would be engine oil leakage. Make sure you service your bike regularly (general advice but still).

Came across this gem of an interview and thought I should share it here for people who don't follow Bike Exif, which is probably zero, but still.

As rewarding as creating custom motorcycles can be, there's a degree of frustration that goes along with it. For instance, you build something that any red-blooded gear head should appreciate - then here come the trolls.

Even through the positive comments far outweigh the bad, we're human, and the trolls have a way of getting under our skin. Not because what we build isn't their cup of tea, either.
It's more that they're so freakin' arrogant. Presumptuous. Uninformed. Typing their little quips and assuming the few minutes they've spent looking at a bike on a screen, trumps all the hours we spent on it. THEY are the experts after all.

"Your butt is gonna catch on fire with that exhaust. Good luck riding it in the rain. That thing ain't gonna turn for shit. All your bikes look the same." So say the armchair builders. Who have loads of time on their hands to opine, while the rest of us are hard at work trying to make stuff happen.

The second one, Nagesh silencer, definitely is at home in this thread.

The shaft drive do you think would be efficient? It's a pretty good piece of engineering work must agree.

"Scarlett" - 2013 Duke 200

The stock headlamp and pilot light fail to illuminate the road properly. Getting an HID was hence the first modification I was definitely going for. The wrap was done after Marquez won his 2013 MotoGP title. I am obviously a bigger Rossi fan, but I wanted a red or orange livery hence went for Marquez.

1. 6000K, 55W HID
2. 3M Wrap

For the lack of any other suitable thread, I am posting this news here which I came across today. RE has built two custom bikes for Wheels & Waves custom bike show in Biarritz, France. This is the first time that RE has done any factory customizations on the bikes. One of them, named Dirty Duck is built on a Continental GT platform with deep water wading capabilities by providing snorkels , sump guards, wider rubbers.

Another one is turbo charged classic 500 with a lengthened wheelbase and lowered stance. This is named as Mo powa and is RE's take on drag bike. Both are one off factory custom bikes.

Amateurish smartphone PS Himalayan mod . Lowered the head lamp assembly. Added tank covers to conceal the odd tank. Removed the beak. Vola, we got ourselves a scrambler.

The lowered headlamp and the second mud guard being removed reduces the adventure tourer image, but really widens its appeal to people like me, who would use it more for office commutes, than for mountain trips.

Maybe RE should look at introducing this Himalayan OE (Office Edition) to increase sales

Meccanico, you got a tastefully done up Duke 200 there. The colour looks apt for the bike and the HID with evil eye projecteor is giving it a mean machine look.

I am glad someone digs my bike Cheers! I was worried about overkill at every step but it ended up pretty neat.

It looks even more mean with a set of knobby tyres and a flying mud guard.

Saw this beautifully modified RE Bullet in my area day before yesterday. Was 95% sure it is a Bullet. Looked simply amazing. Was registered in the capital city. That rear tyre was quite a sight!

Sadly it zipped past me so couldn't get my phone out in time.
