Finally found the perfect exhaust for my build, I think it's just right for the look I've been after. I originally had the Termi exhaust, I bought it before there were very many exhaust on the market. It was a great exhaust but once the Zard came out I had to have it.

I've been making a few changes this winter , still have a few things on the list to do, but I think it's looking good so far. Let me know what you guys think.

Looks good, I had the same Zard on my Triumph Scrambler and loved it, it can get pretty hot, is your seat going to be OK? it looks pretty close, maybe a seat cut and infill side panels?

I'm hoping it will be, I plan on checking the heat out, making sure its not to hot there, I assume Zard has taken the necessary precautions but I'm going to double check myself.

Looks good. Question about your handlebar cable routing. How did you get rid of the big loop in the brake hose? Replace the cable or creative rerouting?

That looks great ! Looks like you've routed the clutch cable down the other side of the headlight, I need to do that too.

Will be interesting to hear how hot that exhaust gets once you've tested it. Also wondering how it would affect the position of pillion rider? I do love the look of that exhaust and I believe they do it in black too.

How is it?? Does the seat get hot/burned, or your leg?? also how was the install...i was looking the termingnoni and it looked painful to install... this looks a little more plug and play friendly? thanks

I think I just responded to your thread, lol. It was really easy actually. You don't have to remove the pipe under the seat it just connects up to it, everything else is replaced though. It's been rather nice for February so I've rode it around the last couple of days, it hasn't been very hot at all, and the seat has been fine. I'm sure if I was stuff in traffic in July it might get a little warmer but I don't think it will be a problem at all. I had a Termi exhaust before this one so I have a Termi fuel map on my bike, seems to work well with this exhaust. If you have the stock map I recommend doing something with the fueling. ZARD says you don't have to do anything to the fueling but I like to play it safe, better performance anyways. You should get a Rexxer Tune, or a booster plug, power commander maybe.

I was trying to get a good view of how the muffler mounts under the seat... any chance you can post a picture of that or explain how? I just grabbed a Desert Sled and I'm curious if this Zard might work with it... thanks in advance.

I mounted mine thursday. Took me about two hours, and I'm useless at anything mechanical. The silencer bracket fits onto the mounting holes under the seat.

The finish is incredible, the sound is.. lets just say characterful. A bit loud for inner city traffic but perfect for the open roads.

User manual quite straight forward - what it doesnt say is that you need to unscrew the plasting casing in front and reroute the lamda sond as the cable is too short.

IMG_1353.JPG Awesome thanks. I didn't realize those plastic plugs under the seat were tapped. I think everything should mount up to the Desert Sled fine. So you went with the "black heat shields" and "black ceramic coating" options?
