Have you ever bought a motorcycle exhaust for free? No? Well, I have bought! Before I tell you the secret of buying a motorcycle pipe for free, I think it's important to know about stainless steel 304. So, what is stainless steel 304 and how is it linked with buying a motorcycle pipe for free is the question that I have to answer.
Stainless steel is a widely used grade with unique qualities and that's why it becomes the only choice for so many manufacturing materials. Type 304 stainless steel is Austenitic Cr-Ni stainless steel alloy. There is Chromium in the range 17% - 25% and Nickel in the range 8% - 20% and some other elements are also added in the alloy to achieve the desired results. This composition of type 304, equips it with multiple properties that become very important especially in terms of motorcycle exhaust manufacturing (as we're discussing it for motorcycle pipes). Mainly it is corrosion-resistant, ductile, weldable, very resistant to extreme temperatures and beautiful looks.
Type 304 stainless steel is very resistant to corrosion. It saves materials from intergranular corrosion (IGC) aka intergranular attack (IGA). This attack damages the boundaries of a material. However, this attack can't damage the type 304 stainless steel as it has low quantity of carbon in it. However, it can be affected by sea waters.
Type 304 stainless steel is very resistant against extreme temperatures. It is excellent resistant even against cryogenic temperatures. This makes its materials durable and long lasting on one side and the materials remains the same even after long periods of as long as 20 plus years.
Malleability of the type makes it suitable for customized exhaust pipes. There is a big number of motorcycle lovers who're brand conscious but also want to put their unique choices into their vehicles. Type 304 allows them put their unique personality in their vehicles. The extra malleable and ductility of the type allows the manufacturers fulfill the maximum choices to the motorcycle lovers. For example, choice of exhaust tip style varies from Slash-cut, Straight-cut, and Upper Cut to Side-cut depending upon your choice. If a material is malleable, it can help the manufacturer make all these tips and what if the material is durable as well?
An added feature of type 304 stainless steel is its beautiful looks. It's natural that everybody wants to look beautiful. Don't you? The best part of this story is that this beauty is long lasting. In the light of Keats saying, 'A thing of beauty is joy forever', I'd like to say, 'A forever beauty is an eternal joy'.
Another advantage of this type is that it's not costly. So, you can get stainless exhausts at affordable prices.
Now let me tell you the secret:
A 20 plus years guarantee, unique customized looks, increased horse power, better sounds of your choice and very affordable prices collectively make stainless exhausts FREE for you. If your motorcycle mufflers remain the same for more than two decades and you don't have to spend even a single penny on them like others, you got them for free and that's what I was trying to say.
