So that's why they're called crap speed

Bought a decat for the S2K a few months ago and had it fitted with our good friend TRM in November.

My exhaust started blowing a couple weeks ago, got round to sorting it out on Friday and found the decat like this;

The crack goes all the way around too :-(

Morale of the story, don't buy one of these if you've got an s2k :lol:

They make some of their own exhausts, but most if their decats, manifolds and exhausts are made in China out of melted down tin foil.

*Edit.

Give them a call it will still be under warranty.

That's incredible. They might as well have made it out of soft-cheese. At least you could have eaten it afterwards.
