I live outside of the EU. Do I have to pay UK VAT?

If you live outside of the European Union then you do not have to pay UK VAT (currently 20%). VAT will automatically be calculated based on your billing/shipping address as you progress through our checkout. Please note you may have to pay a Customs charge in your Country but this is up to you to check.

What is the decibel rating of my exhaust?

It varies between bike models. Our road legal exhausts are manufactured to remain under the UK road legal limit when the baffle is fitted. With the baffle removed it will be louder. Where possible, there are noise ratings on the exhaust option page for your bike model. The basic theory is the smaller and / or shorter the exhaust, the louder it will be. Please note that packing material will wear out over time and your exhaust will get louder.

What type of sealant do I use when fitting?

You can use everyday bathroom and shower sealant as long as it is silicone based. Just use it sparingly around the inlet of the end can and also inside the pipe which mates up with the OEM system.

Yes, if you require your Fuel exhaust repairing or repacking, we can offer the service to do just that. Please email if you require details.

A repack is recommended every 2 years or 12k miles, whichever comes first. Please be aware that on single cylinder bike models a repack is advised every year or 6k miles, whichever comes first.

Exhausts get louder as the packing material wears out.

Will I need to rejet or remap my bike when I fit a Fuel exhaust?

No, you should not need to rejet or remap your bike when fitting one of our exhausts however on the odd occasion, some bike models may require some slight adjustments to the standard set-up.

As a general rule, when fitting aftermarket exhausts, a dyno test is recommended and if you do choose to rejet or remap, you will see further power gains and improved throttle response.

Will I need to change the exhaust for an M.O.T?

If you have purchased a UK road legal exhaust then providing the baffle is left in the exhaust you should have no problems with an M.O.T.

If you have purchased an exhaust from our race range, then there is no guarantee that this will pass an M.O.T although it is now down to the M.O.T testers discretion.

Is the baffle easy to remove?

Yes, the locking nut and bolt can be removed easily using an allen key and a 10mm spanner.

Back to Top

Are these exhausts road legal?

If you have purchased a UK road legal exhaust then yes, it is UK road legal when the baffle remains in place. The British Standard reference for road use is stamped accordingly on each exhaust. They are not road legal outside of the UK.

If you have purchased a race exhaust, then this is not road legal as it is intended for off road and track use only.
