Barrett Exhausts on an SMT?

Post by djtrik » Wed Dec 30, 2015 10:52 pm

I've searched the Google machine and I couldn't come across anyone that has installed a set of Barrett cans on an SMT. The cans look good, seem to sound great and are very affordable ($437 USD). They're an Aussie product but I'm not sure if they ship to USA.

Here's their website:

They say they'll fit the SM and Adv.

Here's the install and how they sound (in a garage)

I'm about to pull the trigger on these and just order them. I'll post an update on them.

Blimey don't let them neanderthalls near your bike. A fookin grinder puking sparks all over me bike, don't think so :shock:

Hah, I'm not sure why they cut the bolts off instead of just unscrewing them. I guess they were seized.

They could have put a bloody heat matt round the bike, rough buggers :?

I guess this is the reason why they didn´t unscrew the bolts from the muffler...

I tried to demount the bolt from the mullers on my SMT 2010, and "succeded" with only 2 of them. All the 4 others were damaged...

I know this isn´t the right thread to ask - but anyone with suggestion "how to" demount the rest of the bolts in the muffler?
Yes, I´ve drilled holes in the bolts to try to get the rest of the threads out. Didn´t succed that good...

The bolts are not stainless steel, but the threads in the muffler are. Or am I wrong?

Wow those are rough. Do you ride in the rain a lot? I'll be sure to put some high-temp anti-seize on all the bolts for the new exhaust.

Oh and have you tried a screw extractor kit yet? Just google search them. I haven't had to use them yet...

Also, heating the them can help as the different metals will expand at different rates with hopes to break them lose.

PBlaster also works well - it's a penetrating catalyst.

I bought the bike last summer (in June -15) and it had about 1600 km. I drove in rain and sun and almost snow (in Norway...) and at the end of the season it had 2450 km.

Didn´t tried screw extractor. But I will try to heat the rests of the bolts to make them come loose.
Also bought thread repar kit, but hope not to use it!
PBlaster is most likely not available in Sweden... :/

I´ll be back later about how the work is proceeding!

So to answer my own question: YES the Barrett exhaust DO fit onto the SMT. I just installed them last night. They bolt up great to the header pipes, no issues. It does require modification to the hangars though.

The stock hangars have a threaded bolt sleeve with a rubber bushing that it slides into. You have to cut the old bolt sleeve off of the old hangars and re-use it with the new hangars. I recommend just a straight cut across and don't worry about grinding it to a pretty circle. The straight edges will sit up against the back of the exhaust mount, preventing it from slipping when trying to tighten the bolt. This also requires drilling a larger hole (1/4") into one side of the new hangar to fit the sleeve through.

The cool part is the new bolt that comes with the exhaust will thread right into that bolt sleeve.

They sound great man. I have a walk around video but I don't have a proper ride video. That'll come when it stops raining. I loaded your map but only had a chance to ride it up and down the street but I can surely tell a difference. Thanks for the map, I really appreciate it.

Here's the video: ignore the dirt. It's been a mess around these roads lately.

Despite that video they are much louder than that. They're loud but sound nice. Here's a video of my dad taking it down the road at night. Sounds good except when he nails the Rev limiter.

Alright I have a proper fly by vid. Sounds best on a system with a sub or headphones.

They look smart with the silver tips. Sound good too.

Ya know I actually ordered the black tips but they said the colored anodized tips tend to chip off with the higher Temps of e big road bikes. I think the turned out nicely as well.
