Danmoto XG-1 Stainless Steel slip-on exhaust.

Very light, very loud, $AU195.00. very cheap, but good quality material and workmanship.
Great pipe for off-road. this is a nasty exhaust. :biggrin-new:

Second video is with Danmoto baffles fitted.

Sounds to me like a Harley on tick over, and like my 900ie Monster when given a few revs. Both free breathing, but a touch noisy, requiring some restraint of the throttle hand from time to time to avoid giving offence.

OK, just got back from first decent ride on the Scrambler with the Danmoto XG-1 zorst.

The introduction to the Duke and it's ECM appeared to go very well with both parties adapting to each other, maybe even faster and better than I expected.

The bike does have the Termi Race MAP installed so that might make the difference .

It is loud, and it might be in my mind, but the bike feels lighter and quicker.
Even the tendency to want to lift the front wheel under power in first cog is more evident.

At this stage the XG-1 is staying on the bike, no bad's, I like it.

I saw your youtube video and with a drunken mind I pressed buy it now on ebay at 1.30 this morning! I've already got a sc project slip on but like the look of the danmoto so for £99 it's a steal.

You still liking your danmoto? Mine should arrive on Tuesday so off with the sc project and on with the xg-1, I think I might alter it slightly and bend the link pipe so it is closer to the pillion pegs also I'll see what it looks like upside down and fabricate a better looking bracket.

Armo, Yes, the XG-1 is still on the bike and going well, I do like it and it is running well.

The XG-1 leaves plenty of room for variation so you'll have no problems experimenting.
It comes with two brackets, one long, one short.

Because it is so light, the mounting bracket does not have to be substantial, another plus for the Danmoto XG-1.

Glad you are still liking it! I ordered one as well and it should arrive this week. Also ordered the baffles as my neighbors probably won't be as enthusiastic about the sound as I will be. :)

Once I get mine I'll make a comparison against the sc project, maybe a video for different noise levels, I'm running the sc with no baffle so hoping for same noise levels. I've got the booster plug installed which seems to make the fuelling spot on.

Those baffles look pretty good, they might just knock the edge of the raw crack, might give em a try myself, geezuz, they're cheap enough, post will cost more than the baffles ! LOL

Fit mine last night, looks better upside down, I then asked my engineering manager to put a greater bend in the link pipe, he couldn't but ended up putting 2 dings in it !! What a dickhead

I received my XG-1 today. Love it! I agree with you Armo that it looks better upside down. It flows well with the curve in the swingarm. I'm glad I ordered the baffles with it; sounds perfect with them installed. It cuts the sound down just enough to keep your eardrums from bleeding :)

Stock right now. Seems to run fine to me at the moment; sounds amazing. But I know once the weather gets back into the 90s, it will start doing the hiccup/stall scenario because of the lean condition. So I plan to open up the airbox and install a booster plug eventually. Probably in the next month or so as long as it doesn't become an "issue" before then.

I might be blind, but does scrambler stuff only appear on the Dan-moto international site and not the US site? I saw free shipping on US site but can't find the exhaust on there.

You are correct. I guess they haven't made it to the US site yet. I ordered from the international site which is FOB Hong Kong. The pipe itself was only $86.00, but the freight was $43.00! Still a steal at that price and it arrived 4 days after placing my order. Much faster than I expected. The baffles were only $18.00, which I would definitely recommend if you live near other humans ;-)

Is this exhaust really that loud? I watched the video and it sounds great. Just hard to tell exactly how loud it is. I have a shift tech slip on exhaust now and while its loud; I wouldn't mind getting even louder

Exactly my question. Luckily, Scowa is relatively close to me. I'm near Orlando. I may see if he is willing to meet me somewhere down that way so I can hear before I order. I'm ready to hit the order button, but concerned without knowing how loud they really are.

I would be up for meeting somewhere so you can hear them. But if anyone else is curious about how loud they are without baffles, just pop off the muffler and cat. Literally just 2 screws and a few springs. Takes about 5 minutes. Since the XG-1 is an open pipe, the sound level is almost the same as having no pipe. I think the only difference is the XG-1 is lined with steel mesh (spark arrestor?) that makes the tone a little deeper. I would run it without baffles, but I live in a fairly uptight community so I'll try not to kick the hornets nest for now. Baffles are easily removed with 1 screw in each outlet (2 total). I still can't believe how great it sounds for the price paid. And it looks like it was custom designed for the Scrambler. I'll post a pic of mine tomorrow.
