Hi There

I wonder if you can help.

I have recently posted this up on the forum and believe the answer is related to the valve however thought I would seek your advice.

I have one pipe that is black and the other that is nice and clean (see photo attached).

I tend to run the exhaust fully open and switch between Mid and Sports mode.

I cleaned the pipes last week and within 3 days this has happened.

Since this time I note the other tile pipe has stayed nice and clean.

Is this normal?

Thanks.

I have the stock exhaust on my MCS and both pipes have about equal blackening. If you are spending the majority of your time with the exhaust uncorked then the open side will get more blackening since you are bypassing the muffler and the left tip isn't seeing much, if anything, pass through it.

Are you just using this as an excuse to show off your Remus 'zorst? ;)

I assumed it came through both pipes not just one?

Surely it would take the path of least resistance? So if the flap is closed it will go through the silencer and if the flap is open then the bulk of the gasses will go straight through the open pipe.

@Unkle Paulie I hope you are enjoying your REMUS system and thank you for the support. The gents here on the forum are correct. This is typical when the valves are run partially/fully open. If you look at the location of the valve you can see when open most of the exhaust will mostly flow through the open pipe which would lead to the slight discoloration of the tip. When closed the exhaust is steered to the silencer.

There is no real way around this unfortunately. One solution would be to rotate the tips so they both receive the same wear and will look the same. Let me know should you have any additional questions.

Mike
