Bike Exhausts Made of Bamboo Shame Standard Ones
Little did Fang know about how good bamboo was for motorcycle exhaust pipes: he thought the bamboo silencer would soon burn off, but he did many miles on his Dayang bike and the custom exhaust is still in great condition!
A local TV station got wind pf this peculiar way to customize a bike and visited Fang Jen. They were all astonished to learn that the bamboo “can” was in fact quieter than the standard metal exhaust.
No dynojet tests were carried out to see if the bamboo silencer was also improving the power of the bike, but we can vouch some riders with the sense of humor and a dyno will soon try this.
Now, a bamboo silencer might not be the best visual addition to your Panigale or Electra Glide, but aftermarket exhaust manufacturers should really look into this.
