2013 Blur 220i, I guess this is not the original exhaust? Makes me concerned because it now makes me think the guy who sold it to me was lying.

Looks original to me, thought pretty rusty for a 2013. Nothing on my 2006 is even close to being rusty like that, but then it's always been parked indoors when not being ridden. That bolt head on yours is a plug for an O2 sensor bung. That exhaust clamp is definitely original PGO.

i am thinking he dropped the bike and ruined the old muffler and had a used one put on it. It makes sense now that you say the rust seems a little much. He had it garaged.

What did you pay for the bike? How many miles on it?

My '13 does not have that carbon fiber styled muffler cover, your mounting point is angled and you are missing the wire guard over that section. Something fishy is going on with your bike Han.

Thanks for that picture pcsguy! Yeah, he told me he replaced the muffler guard but not that he did anything else. He might have bought it like that so I have no idea.

I really hope to get this bike back in perfect condition, such a fun ride but I can tell something is off.

At least you got a good deal on it. My muffler heat shield is like the second pic without the texture. I wonder if that is the one the Blur 150 had? I think they are the same size with a different look. i just ordered a new heat shield as mine has started coming apart at the attachment points over time. My bike has never been dropped. The shield costs $75 at Scooter lounge which is very pricey IMO, but what can you do?

Edit- just received my new cover- it is exactly the same as what you pictured so I assume they changed the design since the Blur was manufactured. I don't think they are making the Blur anymore, but the PGO GMax is sold elsewhere so this must be what the newer versions use. I wish I could buy an older version, but I guess this is the only choice I have.
