Tips for a SuperTrapp Exhaust
A signature feature of SuperTrapp exhaust systems is the patented diffuser disc technology. (chopper motorcycle image by itsallgood from

Supertrapp Industries is one of the top five motorcycle exhaust manufacturers in the United States. A key factor contributing to its success is an innovative patented diffuser disc technology. This innovative system, developed in 1971 by the company founder, allows the rider to adjust his motorcycle to a specific riding environment. It sets SuperTrapp apart from all other exhaust manufacturers. Simply add or remove discs to increase or decrease the exhaust outlet, increase or decrease back pressure and increase or decrease exhaust tone. Depending upon the chosen self-adjustment, either top-end or low-end torque is improved.

Three-Inch Disc Installation

Every SuperTrapp exhaust system is accompanied by full, easily-understood installation instructions. The following simple steps will illustrate the disc installation. Based on what you wish to achieve with your exhaust system, stack the recommended amount of discs with the end cap. Align the three screw holes. The flat surface of the discs must be against the core--the outer lip must be angled away from the core. Insert the three screws through the end cap and stack of discs. Apply the high-temperature lubricant, supplied with your system, to the threaded end of each of the three screws. A T-handle hex key is supplied to insert the whole assembly into the muffler. Align all three screws with the threaded inserts in the core, as per the diagram. Tighten the screws evenly as per the diagram provided. Tightening should equal two full turns after the initial screw-head contact.

Four- and 5-Inch Disc Installation

To install the 4 and 5-inch disc exhaust system, stand the muffler on the bench with the outlet end right-side up. Place the recommended discs for your riding environment, and the end cap on the outlet of the muffler. The discs' flat surface must be against the core, outer lip angled away from the muffler. Align the six screw holes with the threaded inserts as per the diagram provided. Insert the screws through the end cap and discs and into the muffler outlet inserts as per the diagram. Tighten screws evenly in a cross pattern as per the instructions provided with the SuperTrapp exhaust. Four-inch discs need to be tightened to 15-15-in/lbs. and 5-inch discs should be tightened to 50-50-in-lbs. or two full turns after the screw head contact the end cap.
