i did go to the place where i saw the bike but it had gone. on inquireing with the mechanic he said it was a 1100 and the wrong stickering was put on it by the previous owner.

The B King uses the 2008 Busa's engine with a reworked fuel map to give more low down torque.
thanks Rtech. i got one part atleast right that the naked busa of sorts is the B King

i dont agree with you and so would most of the biker boys here. the can on heating does not turn blue. performance wise it must be crap or whatever. but it definately does not turn blue with use. even a novice like me knows that metal on heating turns red and then on cooling turns back to its original colour not a different colour curveahead.

Not in reference to the exhaust, but just in general - there are exceptions to your statement!
For eg. a few metals form a patina when heated (looks similar to the exhaust fyi)

rehaan i am talking in reference to the exhaust can here. so are you saying this exhaust can changes colour on heating up. i do not agree to it. other metals do change colour at various heating points but not to a shade of blue as the can. this is done via various oxydiseing processes. if i do know my chemicals and metals right rehaan

yes it does change color when the exhaust heats up, the color you see on the bottom half spreads to the upper half

quoted from Two Brothers

3Titanium canisters may shift color when exposed to elevated temperatures. This shift in color may occur at different rates resulting in color gradations ranging from blue, purple, red and even gold in some instances.

IIRC, even the greddy headers that GTO, ajmat, quicksilver have changed colours on heating up. Because when I saw them brand new they looked in a different colour.
