I'm starting to grind away the standard Termi Shotgun exhausts when cornering, I assume that the shotgun style gives more ground clearance than the Termi race slip on?

I'm yet to see a high level exhaust that I like on the Scrambler, so am looking to replace the Shotgun Termi with an aftermarket system that will offer better ground clearance and allow for more lean angle.

High on my list (well at the top really) is the SC Projects C-RT system. The can looks to be a lot higher than standard and should give me what I'm looking for.

Question is..... Other than the C-RT, what else is there available that sounds as nice?

Cheers

I think you're just showing off.
I wish I was. It was stomach churning hearing it scrape the first time, the bike is only 3 weeks old and is (was) pristine!

It's not scraping on every single corner, of every single ride. Don't get me wrong. But it has touched down a couple of times now.
The thing I am concerned about more than the damage, is the possibility of lifting the back wheel and losing the bike mid way through a corner.

I'm guessing now that other people haven't had an issue with scraping the shotgun style exhausts then?
I know when I saw videos / pictures of Icon's from press launches etc ... that the larger conical style exhausts had been worn pretty extensively.

Hello

I have FT shotguns on my Classic and they never touched the ground while riding, although it seems I have been as far as you on the angle (regarding your tyre wear zone). I'm weighting 85 kg and my bike has got a rear Ohlins shock and a modified front fork, so it may be higher than usual.

You should consider adding some more constraint on your rear shock, this will raise the bike a little bit.

You may also consider leaning your body more on the bike, in corners. I know some pilots prefer to keep their body vertical, for better road sight and lean deeper the bike. Their bikes oftenly touch more the road than bikes where pilot lean outside the bike in corner.

You can see a flat zone on the tyre side, you can lean farther than that and use this zone. Just imagine what would happen to your exhaust, in such a case.

shows the hanging-off style of riding, but honestly if you're going to chase bigger boys (or girls) on "faster" bikes then you're going to touch the exhaust... It's great fun.

I'm moving from the stock Classic exhaust to a high-level Termi, and am looking forward to increased lean angle on right turns... my boot / peg regularly go down on lefts, again it's great fun. The Scrambler is a handling gem, and I'm on stock shock / forks / tyres combo... just go for it! :D

I'm impressed you didn't catch your boot first! It was time for a change of underwear last time I got that low. Never scraped my shotgun termi, but I don't typically get as low as you probably are.

There aren't many low slip ons that also replace the stock pipe, which is really not going to help. The race termi, scorpion, and SC do seem like they would give you another inch and would be the loss of the cat convertor.

How much room do you think you need? Once you lose the cat, you open up your options for modding the exhaust after the headers but there isn't a lot of room under the right peg and rear brake.

I'm rocking the Termi race slip on (2nd one now) and am loving the clearance on the right side. With no cat to drag, I find the next lowest bit to hit pavement, after boot/peg is the pipe itself just behind where the two pipes join (see attached). Thankfully, it's only happened once! With the way the heads are shaped on the high Termi it might still be a point of contact on the right if you plan on getting low. For what little that's worth.

I catch the toe of my boot all the time, I don't mind that so much to be honest.

I have a SC Project CR-T exhaust on the way now though, so my clearance issues will be sorted by next week hopefully.

Huge thanks to Andyjig76 for sending me his titanium C-RT can and booster plug.

Got everything fitted yesterday, and I couldn't be happier.

Those C-RT cans are loud by the way - VERY LOUD!

I have the SC CR-T - I think.
I can confirm it is fecking loud and requires the diligent use of earplugs.

I can also confirm that I have gotten nowhere near hitting it on the ground.
That is more likely because I am in the top 1 percentile of shit cornerers. :)
