DRZ Exaust

On my new DRZ, there is a small hole where the muffler is welded onto the pipe. The hole doesn't go all the way through, it looks like the metal is layered and the hole goes through the outer layer (can't see all the way through because the inner layer stops from seeing into the pipe). When the bike is running (I realize this would be impossible if it weren't), exaust escapes through this hole. I asked the dealer about it and they told me it was to allow condensation to be blown out. This seemed kind of weird to me. Anyone know anything about that?

Re: DRZ Exaust

No, not removable, it's at a weld, it's definately supposed to be there. I haven't seen another one running so I don't know how it acts on another machine other than mine. If you see one and can check it out, I'd appreciate it.

Re: DRZ Exaust

I'll probley be at a dealer this weekend, I'll look then.

It still seems weird though, as you'd think that all the condensation would just evaporate anyhow?

Maybe it's kind of a drain Brian. If you got water inside it would soak through the packing to the outer layer of the muffler then to the hole; instead of just sitting there or running down into the headpipe.
