Default Exhaust Leak Indentifiers

Hi,

I have a few questions regarding exhaust leaks as I attempt to identify and remove them if they exist.

1. How do you know if you have an exhaust leak?

2. Would extreme high values in a cell(s) of the fuel map on the PC-V be an indicator? If so, what is extreme?

3. What test can you do to see if you have an exhaust leak?

Thanks in advance for indulging me.

The easiest way to spot leaks is to look for bluing feathering out from the pipe connections.

The way I do it is to get some wd-40 and spray the exhaust joints and manifold area while the bike is running. If the idle sputters or changes then you know that their is a leak in that area.

Vic has cheap flanges and cheaper studs.
You have to check bolts more then once
