Honda elite 150 deluxe help

I've got a 1986 Honda elite deluxe I've been putting some work into. I'm trying to find a performance exhaust pipe for it to give it a little kick. Does anyone know of a pipe that will fit? Has anyone done this upgrade themselves? If so how did it effect top end speed/performance?


Thanks

You will need to have it custom made.
I've seen that done to a 125 Elite, don't have a picture though.

The stock exhaust is shaped like a paper clip.
I like the quiet exhaust note of the stock unit as well.

If you have something made by a welder, show us pictures.

You could use a lot of different things & mate it to some of the existing exhaust tubing, different 150cc GY6 exhausts & what not. I really want to put a FMF Shorty pipe on mine! No matter waht, you're looking at some cutting/welding & again there's the mounting issue. . .

I'll look into the gy6 exhaust, I wouldnt mind doing a little welding if its gonna pay off. Any other suggestions that will give the bike some extra speed on the top end?

You could go with different variator roller or slider weights, or you can ditch the CV carb for a Mikuni VM26 or something else non-CV.

1. No "off the rack" performance exhaust available for your engine, at least not in the states that I'm aware of.

2. While it's gone, Doug Simpson used to have a great website about the Honda Elite including a sketch of a performance exhaust he was working on. It's still available at the Internet Archive:
http://web.archive.org/web/200706240...n/Elite_4.html



3. That engine is the older vertical cylinder model, not the horizontal (Gy6) so you can't just toss a Gy6 exhaust on it. Best bet is to take the exhaust manifold, hack it at the turn, then work out a Supertrapp or similar exhaust cone. Tuned-length is important though.

More info here:

Have fun!

Stick to your New Year's resolution and lose weight.

Cheaper than buying parts.

I let a friend who owns a repair shop do the labor and I bought the part online. Not exactly sure how much re jetting was needed but I can tell you he was done within 20 Mins tops.

Thanks!
I got this scooter for free because it has been sitting outside for 17 years unridden!!
What a filthy pile it was. furry little rodenrs had been living under the body work creating their own little eco-system.
After tearing off all the body work (and listing it on Ebay ) I discovered that the motor is not frozen.
The p.o. came through with a clean title, so I decided to do a naked scooter based on this puppy. I am discvering that these were pretty reliable and have a big following. I'm also discovering how much people need unbroken body work, as shown by all the bidding that's going on. That's gonna work great for me since I will use any $$$ made from the auctions to fund the build.
Thanks again for the info.
Robert

Holy crap! the plastic auctions ended last night on E bay and I did better than expected!
several hundred dollars has been alloted towards the build now.
If you're thinking about selling the tupperware, now is the time.

Anytime you notice prices seem to be high for something you are selling you have to realize the reason.The bike you are stripping out is rare and becoming collectable.You might think you're making out on the deal but actually devalue your scoot in the process.Some people care.some don't, thats what makes the world great. Good luck.

Very true, If I didnt have a spare elite I definitely wouldnt be stripping my 86 Deluxe.
