MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

So...I’ve got a e50 Magnum with a gila kit, v force reeds, 24mm pwk oko carb, new jammer clutch with lightened clutch bell, tomos super Tom Cdi with parma box. Running 15/45 and gps at 49.5. Currently running a honey 8p but looking to swap exhaust for something with a lower start to the power band. Anyone have experience with the homet 8p and the mlm bk100? Hoping the bk100 is the answer to my questions despite the price tag

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

I have both. 8p Revs out higher and the BK100 is snappier in the mids. Both are great pipes

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

Do you have the regular bk100 or the side bleed? If the regular bk100 has a lower low with better mid than the p8 I’d take that over the side bleed which would be even lower for a start to the power band with more sacrifice up too. I don’t hate my setup, just trying to make it more commuter/traffic blaster friendly

Thanks for the input btw Erich

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

Oh I get that. I should have stated it is a side bleed.

Overpriced Parts /

For commuter/daily use I went with estoril pipes on all my bikes years ago with header bent/modded to fit angle port gila cylinder and never looked back, you can run stock 2 or 3 shoe clutch and use motor oil instead of tranny fluid which is better for gears and bearings

You need to buy the derestricted version or cut open the stinger and remove the “funnel that’s inside normal version, It’s been in this bike for around 8 years

i hear there is about a month waiting list but the crank pipes are really good too. they dig out real low and just keep revving to the moon. they are also built a lot heavier than the MLM and cheaper.

Agreed, from the ones that I have seen on bikes! Definitely worth getting. If I was doing another Gila build I would 12/10 get one of those.

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

8p sucks. It's way to high of a pipe to be usable for anything that isn't racing or multi-geared bikes. Had one and sold it promptly. I have a bk, davinci, lk90, and an estirol now.

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

6/8p is the best moped pipe, If you can’t hit it then your tune sucks. Anyone who disagrees, I don’t trust their abilities.

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

8p is a great pipe, when I had one on a slightly modified stock Korado E50 I saw 45mph (GPS’d) and could still pull the hills around Seattle.

6p/8p kicks ass! For the money, cranks pipe cant be beat. I bough one of the first models and it rules. I'm sure they're even better now.

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

no groms no blasters /

buy a smaller front sprocket and get into that power band faster for under ten bucks

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

Thanks for all the input guys. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the mlm bk100 side bleed. Glad I did because my 8p decided to cracked in half last Week. No fun. Got the new pipe and a new gila kit installed (last one was in rough shape). Did some heat cycles and took it out for a quick 5 minute or so ride and the acceleration is absolutely night and day. I’ll try to hurry up and get thru a break in and put it through the paces and I’ll report back.

After the install. Hit 50.1 gps on 15/45 before the changes btw before the day the pipe broke...curious to see what the new setup will do. Will post back after break in

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

I’ll buy that 8p off you

Re: MLM bk100 vs Homet 8p on e50 gila

I love my bk 100. Had the Naz hack and weld a 7mm nut to the end like the Estoril with adjustable end bleed and I can't be happier with it.(edited)
