With the world moving towards increasing safety of vehicles and the rider, a key emphasis lies in the ability to brake effectively and effectively. This is even more prevalent in motorcycles, where rider safety is paramount. The concept of the exhaust brake is a relatively simple one. With the help of a valve, a portion of the exhaust gasses can be trapped, creating a back pressure on the engine, slowing it down. This project aims to analyze the extra braking power and effeciency of the exhaust brake system on a typical motorcycle engine, by modelling the engine and the gas flow using a fluid modelling software. The results of this analysis can be used to determine if the application of exhaust brakes are useful, and in what cases it will be the most effective
