Where else could someone possibly get such a focused product, unless it was being built specifically as a one-off at a massive cost for a race team? Racefit production products offer focused bolt-off, bolt-on for your bike – no need for an engineering degree to fit it or a development team with works mechanics behind you. To this end Racefit products are high-end focused.

WHO IS RACEFIT?
Racefit partners Jon and Phil started the company in 2004 both having lived parallel lives with regard to their early interest in motorcycles and without pressure or persuasion continued with this into adolescence and then related jobs expanded their horizons into engineering and a passion for the exotic side of engineering, materials and race details. Phil and Jon had been on the other side of the counter for a long time so knew what it was like to get good/bad service, products that fit/those that came with fitting issues, good/poor quality, so they knew they had to set the bar at the highest level. Simply, their motto is ‘either it’s right or it’s wrong’. Again from their previous experience realizing the measure of a company is then the level of service received when problems occur and how the company then deals with it. Their main goal is that products have to be exciting and for the public to be able to buy something truly unique.

CAN I FIT THE RACEFIT EXHAUST MYSELF?
Racefit exhausts are relatively simple to install. However, please read the Fitting Instructions and safety notes carefully before attempting to fit the exhaust to your bike. If you do not have the correct tools or have any doubts about your mechanical ability Contact Us for advice or have it fitted by a recognised bike dealer or a competent technician. Please use the Contact Us section should your require further copies.
CAN A RACEFIT PRODUCT JUST KEEP GOING?
Yes. For when your exhaust is looking a little tired and the packing is past it's best - send your exhaust back to us and we will strip it, rumble it, put new packing and rivet it all back together - in other words, give it a 'birthday'! Please see this item on the webstore.
WHAT IS ETCHING?
Etching is an electro-checmical that permanently marks the titanium sleeve - see photo below. This is available on request (no extra cost). When checking out either select the option for etching or write "Etched" in the notes section. All orders will be shipped with stickers/decals unless requested. Please note: this is ONLY available on titanium sleeves, NOT carbon.
CAN I FIT A BAFFLE WITH A BLACK EDITION?
Simply no - there is no place to attach the baffle with a Black Edition exhaust. However, if you want a baffle you can simple request a Growler end cap - please see photos below. There is no extra cost. When checking out either select the option for your choice of end cap or write your request in the notes section.
WILL I NEED TO ADJUST THE FUELING (DYNO SET UP) AND WHAT SORT OF BHP GAINS CAN I EXPECT?
Be aware that your motorcycle is a production item and is subject to manufacturing tolerances – therefore no two motorcycles are identical. The performance of your motorcycle is in effect a compromise to comply with various noise and emission laws in various countries. However, making changes to your motorcycle exhaust will not suddenly cause it to not run, lose power or be damaged – your bike will run correctly. Generally there are power gains due to our exhausts being less restrictive. There may be more power gains if the fitting is combined other aftermarket fuelling products.
HOW LOUD ARE RACEFIT EXHAUSTS / WILL MY EXHAUST BE ALLOWED ON TRACK DAYS?
Racefit exhausts (depending on which design on which bike) combined with our Noise Reduction Insert (NRI) are designed to comply with current FIM/ACU (superbike) regulations. Generally track days are run according to these regulations and if your exhaust is correctly maintained you should have no problems.
WHAT WEIGHT SAVING CAN I EXPECT?
World Class weight savings…! Generally Racefit Exhausts weigh between at 350g – 1100g OE exhausts can weigh between 3 – 10 kilos!
HOW DO I CLEAN MY RACEFIT EXHAUST?
Clean the exhaust with a multi-purpose spray lubricant (WD-40 or equivalent) with a soft cloth. Do not use aggressive chemical cleaners. A change in the colour of the exhaust system is normal due to the high temperatures.
CAN I BUY SPARE PARTS?
Yes! See Spares in the Accessories menu on the webstore!
WHAT IF MY STICKER/DECAL COMES OFF?
Replacement stickers are available from Racefit (either over phone or webstore). Wipe down with Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)/panel wipe before replacing with the new sticker.
HOW OFTEN DOES MY EXHAUST NEED REPACKING – CAN I DO IT MYSELF?
The nature of the product means that at intervals the exhausts will need to be repacked with sound absorption material. Racefit only use Acoustafil branded premium packing. Service intervals will depend on how hard, how far and how often you ride your bike. Regularly check the exhaust visually and listen for any changes in exhaust note. A service / recharging kit is available separately or your exhaust can be returned to Racefit and we will do it for you at a reasonable fee.
Damage caused due to not repacking when needed may not be covered by warranty.
I HAVE HAD AN ACCIDENT WITH MINOR DAMAGE – CAN RACEFIT REPAIR MY EXHAUST?
This depends on the extent of the damage but we will try our best ot repair it. Once the exhaust is returned to us we will assess and provide you a quotation of works.
WHAT IF I WANT SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT; COULD I SPEND AN EXTORTIONATE AMOUNT OF MONEY ON A FANTASTIC PROJECT THAT YOU GUYS WOULD FIND INTERESTING??
WHAT ABOUT MY BACK PRESSURE AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Talk about exhausts and very often the terms ‘back pressure’ or the ‘right back pressure’ come up. Back pressure is only caused by restriction and has little or nothing to do with performance exhaust design. Although modern OE superbike exhaust systems are very well designed and can reduce noise levels to conform to emissions laws without offering much actual back pressure these systems are to some degree restrictive. Performance exhausts work by “pulse tuning” which is the use of the correct pipe lengths and diameters and correct collector configurations to tune the exhaust pulses to help to fill and scavenge the cylinders. This will increase the volumetric efficiency, which will increase power and torque. Therefore only restrictive exhausts would suffer back pressure. Racefit exhausts do not offer any restriction.
VALVES? WILL LOSING THE VALVE LOSE ME POWER?
(Also known as Set Valves, Exup Valves Etc…) To fit Racefit exhausts on some models it is necessary to disconnect the exhaust valve. The primary function of this valve is noise control and not to boost power (if it was a power valve it would be on every race bike – it doesn’t appear on any!). Therefore disconnection of this valve will not result in a power loss or affect in any way the running of your motorcycle.
