      Can we convert the stock classic fiero silencer to a free flow exhaust? Does it give any improvement in top speed?

        Hi guys.
        Good stuff going around here, been closely watching this forum .

        Its been some time that my bikes taking all the thrashing and everythings intact except for the chain and sprockets .
        Say if I was to downsize to a 17"(planning for impulse spokes) on the rear and I wanted a longer gearing or at least as good as the stock. what options are available with the sprockets ??
        Im using a f2 .

        Thanks

            Hi rIbu,




            Best to go step-by-step to see which mod/alteration will suit your needs best...


            - change front (gearbox) sprocket size
            - change rear wheel sprocket size
            - change rear wheel rim size
            - change tyre size


            One tooth in front is equal to almost 3 1/2 teeth in the back.


            In this way, you can see the pros and cons regarding performance of your bike.


            On a personal note, I have 14T GB sprocket on my FX and that gives me more top speed.
            I have noticed engine is more free on highways.
            Plus, not much drop in pick-up to complain about.
            (quick fix!)


            Impulse has straight pull spokes AFAIK, so please check if your bike's cone / wheel hub needs to be changed. Don't know how that will work. Or try Yezdi's rim or other 2 stroke 17-inchers.


            Hope this helps

              stock sprocket goes well with 17 inch rear. actually it depends on what u want from the bike. by the way,what is the advantage of 17 inches rear wheel with 18 at front?

                Hi prd8r
                Thank you for your reply . And sorry sbout the late reply .

                Like you said I was thinking about long gears only . I prefer longer gears most of the time . Without the 5th cog its a pain in the highway otherwise .
                Well i should have made myself clearer .my doubt is regarding what is available in the market that can fit the fiero .
                I asked a nearby mech and he said to go with the apache setup , he has no idea what their sizes are even . Should I get that(apaches @ rs1050~) or the original spare of the fiero (rs 950 ~) or am I sposd to change part by part . If someone could shod some light on what part to get. I could go and source . Im looking for longer final gear ratio .

                About the spokes yea I guess its not an easy swap . But since I have to change the tyres as well . Impulse has 110 section gripp tyre from ceat . The section It's not too less not too much so thats why im a bit attracted to those .will have to ask around.

                Thanks

                  Hi Dev_111
                  I hope you understand that your engine needs to exhale out harder only when it breathes and works harder . That said your gearing plays a crucial role here too . If you want more top speed u need more power !!! And a longer gearing . By removing the catcon of your stock exhaust ur going to achieve literally no results worth the effort .
                  If you really want to get a free'er flowing exhaust . Why dont you fabricate a bend pipe and pop in one of those mufflers and leave the stock silencer aside(its getting harder to find stock stuff ) .
                  ^^ this is just my personal opinion .
                  Hope It helps

                      Hey read post #4215 on fiero ownership by gsxr . He has explained on how to convert your stock exhaust to a free flow .

                        my bike is emitting black smoke at full throttle checked the spark plug. it is little oily. I think I need to go for new ring piston set. friends , shall I get it done immediately or wait till it loses its performance? so far, its running well. this is the 2nd time I need to go for engine work in 2 lac kms which include some harsh rides like Ladakh & Spiti trip. This bike indeed a quality stuff!

                          seniors pls advise!finally I have decided to go for rtr180 bore and piston for my fiero. pls clarify my last hour doubts:- do I need to change the timing chain also? if yes, why is this required?- can I manage by adding few extra gaskets instead of lathe work on the head?- do I need to change the valves?- will a pulsar 200 carb be fine for the new set up?-regular engine oil or 20-50?looking for yr quick guidance.

                            Hey dev_111
                            I have just upgraded my engine now to 180cc . Its a great set up. But im using an apache head . Didnt have to change the timing chain so probably neither with the fiero head . But please confirm before you proceed .
                            If you add the gaskets its going to raise the compression . The lathe job that is required is to reduce compression .
                            P200 uses bs29 carb ?? Then that'd be fine .
                            Do check the valves for seating and replace if required.
                            20w40 works fine . This is one tough son of a bike .
                            Since you've run close to 2lakhs. Better get your connecting rods replaced as well.
                            Hope this helps .

                              thanx for reply bro.currently, I got it rebored and kept my old 150cc setup. I m looking for a used rtr 180 head . once I get it, I will go for upgrade. my only worry is its reliablity in harsh conditions as I m planning to do a ladakh trip next summers. so not taking much chances.
