Aftermarket cans

#1 Post by Tankbag » Wed Jul 11, 2018 10:05 pm

Well bike nuts, I like that my bike is stock but it's time to change those boring & quite heavy exhausts. I've read that some folks think Suzuki should have Yoshi & not Akras, plus any other suggestions. Cheers ears
If it cant be fixed with a hammer you have an electrical problem

Scorpion or Arrow exhausts worth looking at.

Akras are the best.

I've had scorpion and to be honest I wasn't impressed with the quality of them for the price they cost

Also a word of warning on certain models the exhausts form part of the support for the subframe and replacing them can cause the subframe to crack! But I reckon you know about this already

Yoshi :thumb: ... Akros as always look to big and long on most bikes

My opinion based on nout but my tone deaf ears...

Akrapovic = deep throaty purr with bafffle, loud aggressive roar with baffle out.

Arrow = loud and smooth growl.

Yoshi = asbo loud and angry without baffle (never heard one with baffle)

Scorpion = seems to vary drastically by bike if it growls or roars. Sounds more grumbly than the rest too me.

Black widow = avoid if you want it to last more than 14months.

Fuel = some where in-between akra and arrow. They purr then roar.

Just buy 8 cans and tape them together then shove it on the end of your standard exhaust, you now have the perfect sounding bike :D :D :D

Or if you want something a little less common you might consider the GPR range . I have one on one of my bikes so I can vouch for the excellent build quality. https://www.gpr-motorcycle-exhausts.co. ... 00-2007-17

Don’t rule out these guys. I have one on my Versys and even though the CAT 4 stops it being LOUD, the tone it gives out is sweet.
I don’t know what year you bike is, so I guessed between ‘99 -‘07 and this is the massive choice they give you.

Does it have a cat/collector box?
If so the silencing mostly happens in there, and the end can is mostly cosmetic.
If not, get an Akra with removable DBkiller. Straight pipes with carbon cans look awesome.
