Is this standard or aftermarket?

Just wondering what exhaust this is, the bike came with a Hindle slip on when i bought it back in 1873, but never really gave it any thought till recently.

Re: Is this standard or aftermarket?

Not that i have noticed. It appears to be thin-wall steel that was chrome plated but now just rusty. The muffler said Hindle Stealth on it.
The plastics are back on now, but might get it out during the week so i can clean it up and give it a coat of flame-proof paint. Will look out for any numbers as i go.

Definitely aftermarket. If it had a Hindle can on it I would just assume it's a full Hindle system. No standard system on the 900's ever had spring retained joints.

Makes me wonder if its got a jetting kit too. Any way of telling by looking at the carbies externally?

Not really. On the older ones like ours the factory would seal the fuel/air screws with an aluminum plug (before the advent of the D shape screw head). Sometimes if the aluminum plugs are gone it's a way to tell its been jetted. My guess would be yes, as it would give you signs with a full exhaust that it may be running too lean. Pop the carbs off and then the choke rail, or if you're daring leave the carbs on and take the choke rail off. Pull the vacuum top off a carb and remove the slide. Using a screw from the carb top, thread it into the center of the slide. Give it a good tug and it will come out, allowing you to push the needle out. Be careful, there's probably a washer in there under the needle. If you have multiple grooves in the needle and a c-clip they are adjustable, and more than likely a jet kit is installed. It's uncommon to only have adjustable needles and no added jets.

Re: Is this standard or aftermarket?

^ ok thanks. Well it hasn't been running lean so probably does have something going on.
Im taking it in for a tune and general check over hopefully this week, will be interesting to see what comes up.

In other news, just installed a K&N air filter after reading about how useless they are. I was just hoping for a bit more induction noise. No appreciable difference in noise or go.
Thing i found funny is they have re-invented the divider between the front and back of the air-box for some reason. Instead of fitting into the groove like oem, it comes down further and overlaps it (and requires slight trimming to fit), thus changing the shape of the insides of the box slightly, as well as loosing what ever seal there was between the front and back of the box. I dunno about it. Might have to get an OEM Honda one back in there.
