Horse Thank You!

I want to get a muffler that I don't have to repack twice a year, and I don't want to remap the fuel injection.
The information that you posted for me is very valuable.

Thank you again,
Kenny G

Thank you Esc,

I am hoping that I can use a slip on muffler on my new Rebel 500 that was designed for the CB500X since they share the same engine. There is a forum for the Rebel 500, but it is not established like this forum and their are no answers at this early point in the life of the forum or the Rebel 500.

What seems to be the most popular muffler on the CB500X ?

This has been discussed on advrider. The CB-X/F/R exhausts are not directly compatible with the Rebel. It would take reworking the pipe and mounting to make them work, then it's still a toss up.

If you're repacking a muffler that often, there's a problem somewhere. I had a Hayabusa muffler I installed on my GS blow out the new packing in less than a couple thousand miles. It turned out that the screen that goes over the baffle was missing and the exhaust flowing through the muffler was dragging out the packing material. When I got the muffler, someone had gutted it and all that was left inside was the baffle tube and end caps.

Esc,

I ride a lot and I have to repack the muffler on my Buell every 5000 miles. The reason I bought the Honda was to get out of doing maintenance work on motorcycles. I am old and want to ride as much as I can.

Same here. I bought my cb-x to get out of working on my bikes. I have eight. I thought I had found a reliable bike, but I'm one of the few that has been plagued by water pump problems. I made the repairs today. I hope to have the CB-X back together over the weekend, or first of next week. Then I can move on to finishing my other seven bikes and deciding on what to sell and what to keep. I'm medically retired and I want to put my time into building a residual income for my retirement in a few years. I also want to find the area I want to live the last years of my life.

As far as packing mufflers, in 40 years, I've never heard of someone needing to repack a can every 5000 miles, except on race bikes. I'm at a loss on that. It usually takes me 30,000+ miles of hard running to burn out fiberglass packing. :027:

I've had my LeoVince for 2 years now and it seems the same as the day I put it on.

CB,

Thanks for the reply. I contacted the distributor of LeoVance mufflers and they have no information as to fitment on the CMX Rebel 500. So I am going to wait and see.

The rebel was just released this year. I think it will be a while before companies start to take up with it and produce farkles for it. It's had some pretty mixed reviews so products may be slow coming to market.
