Options for aftermarket exhaust
« on: August 17, 2019, 03:49:51 am »
Hey guys been thinking about doing a little exhaust work, I want something that will rumble a little bit not crazy so  touring is not an issue i saw these on amazon today and it says "loud and aggressive sound" was not sure how subjective that was and was wondering how loud are they really. Any more cheaper muffler options would be great as well as long a** they do not require a whole lot of carb tuning.

Best thing to try first would be a baffelectomy . Its free and just gives it a little rumble like you want .

You posted a link for Delkevic 9" slip-on mufflers. The Delkevic mufflers are high quality and sound great (look good too). But, I would get at least 14" cans. I have the 14" carbon fiber version and love it. There is a removably baffle if you need to make noise or reinstall it for touring. If you are only installing the slip-ons, you won't need to rejet.

Maybe you do want the 9" since they're a bit louder. My Delkevic is pretty mellow at idle and low rpm levels. A lower tone, throaty growl, when you crank it up, it starts to wake up. I'm old, so I like the 14" with baffle in, it's a good fit for me. I think you're gonna be the guy with the baffles out. Yeah, 9" no baffle, that sounds mean. There are a couple youtube vids, one has 18" Delkevic slip-ons before and after. I need to get a sound clip made of mine one of these days. The photo is my 14" Delkevic, so you can imagine the 9" is five inches shorter. Do you ride much with the bags on?

Yeah i usually have bags on most of the time unless I’m doing some hard riding, haha maybe not the 9 w no baffles but the 9 as long it’s not droning at highway speeds
