Did you end up buying/installing this slip on?
It has caught my attention recently as well... seems to fit the theme we were going for with this bike. j
Just hoping for my wife's sake that it isn't too overbearing and loud for her, with the DB Killer installed.
She gets embarrassed if she misses shifts or revs too long, but I keep trying to tell her that she won't be able to correct it if she can't hear what is going on! :)

Yep, bought it not long after the opening post. I looked around for quite a while before settling on it. Suits me perfectly - good looking but simple exhaust. I don't like the multi-material or intricate pipes. So for me it was either the 60s Spark, Leo Vance or Sil Moto twin.

I initially installed it without a remap and it ran fine. The immediate freeing up of the exhaust flow makes all the difference with the aftermarket pipes that remove the cat. Not long later I installed an aftermarket air filter and a rexxer remap. Like others have said before me, this transformed the bike.

Back to the exhaust, with the baffle out it is loud and harsh. Cracks and pops too much for my liking. I've tried to ride a few times like this but it just wasn't what I wanted. And besides, with the baffle in it was spot on for me. Baffle in gives the bike a fantastic purr, just like the sound file above. Pops occasionally on decel at high revs but almost never around town. A touch louder would suit me but I'd prefer not to wear ear plugs when riding so I'll settle for it as is. I imagine not too dissimilar to most of the slip ons. So it comes down to looks.

The clean lines make cleaning a sinch. Bit of aluminium polish every now and then as, probably due to the remap, a bit of soot comes out the back. Cost me $800 aud delivered. I really liked the look of Sil Moto twin but I couldn't find a review at the time, or a sound file, and the price was significantly more so I went with this one. No regrets.

Thanks for the reply.
Solid input!

This is definitely high on my list, for many of the same reasons you just reaffirmed.

I like some of the dual can vintage style mufflers, but you're right, they are wildly expensive. More expensive than a SC Project low mount FULL exhaust system, with header pipes!? I don't understand that.



So, does your heel still rub on it a bit when standing on the pegs, like the factory exhaust?

Any chance you happen to have any photos of your Scrambler with it installed?

Not that I have noticed. I have the multi pegs on now too. I don't recall having an issue with the stock exhaust though either. Might be a riding style difference.

Here you go. Let me know if you want specific angles of anything.

Where are you located? Happy to meet up if you are on the East coast of Oz.

Appreciate the photos, looks good.

And yeah, heel rub on the exhaust is an issue for even my wife with a small foot.


I'd really like to come check it out in person, but I'm quite a distance from you living near Detroit in the US.
Ha, maybe one day I'll make it to Oz! Could use an excuse to travel now.
