Welcome. If your new bike has an excellent condition OEM exhaust fitted and you feel the urge to throw it away, please throw it my way. Thanks 😀😁😁😁

Welcome to the forum. Great place with plenty of great advice so a good place to start. Once it arrives the good folks here love pictures. Good to have someone join with a cb550, it was in danger of becoming the cb400/4 forum. The cb550 is a great bike.
Got a 500/4 with rust and a sidecar and loadsa bits. nice and original and been round the clock

sadly it has a very poor looking exhaust julie, with what looks like a car cherry bomb as the silencer

I love some of the improvised exhausts fitted to these bikes, one of my favourites belonged to a mate, he had a cb550f2 with a alloy plate with sponges wrapped in gaffa tape as the seat, those metal industrial 13amp twin plug boxes from someones shed wiring as the air filters - more poundland's sponges inside! And a Massey Ferguson tractor exhaust being the 'silencer' Following that was interesting, especially at night, flames from the exhaust were a regular thing. I miss being around Rat bikes.

One of the best sounding exhausts I can remember was back in the early 80's and a mates 400/4 with a real Dunstall Decibel 'silencer' fitted, incredible sound. I would always ride behind him to hear it.
