Hi all I have a ‘92 Gen 1 Vmax... are the exhaust header gaskets the same for front and rear downpipes please? Also, anyone have any experience of Marvin exhausts for the Vmax? Are they any good etc ...
Yes, the front and rear exhaust header gasket rings are the same. The rears are different numbers from the front gasket numbers on the fiche picture (shown below), but as you see, the part numbers you would be ordering are the same.
Yes Marving is a good system. I only know their product as a slip-on, using the OEM header pipes F & R .
Please consider adding your location, click on your name in the upper-right of the banner, and under 'signature' tell us what year your bike is, and if you're in someplace besides the USA/Canada, what market was your bike built-for? Look on the decal on the steering head.
Note the Marving has a cross-over pipe but not as-large a resonator box as the OEM 1-piece megaphone and resonator system. No slp-on does anything for adding/increasing power. In fact, the notorious Cobra 4-into-4 slash-cut slip-on costs-you horsepower! Yes, they look 'cool,' but if you want to lose something like 15% RWHP, and end-up with soggy throttle response, that's your ticket! Look-cool, lose power, get lacksidaisical throttle response. Uh, no-thanks.
