Aftermarket exhaust + Aftermarket centerstand

Hello my fellow versysers! (Pretty sure that`s not a word, sounds fun tho)

I ordered my 2016 Versys 650 and since it`s going to take 2/3 weeks till it`s delivered i`ve got plenty of time to look at centerstands and aftermarket exhaust options.

Turns out you don`t need allot of time to look at centerstands for the Versys 650 2016

Anyway, I can`t imagine my new Versys not having a centerstand, or not having an aftermarket exhaust on it. Just one big question, are there exhaust`s that fit together with any of the centerstands out there? Is there anyone on this forum that has a centerstand ánd an aftermarket exhaust?

(Edit! Forgot to add that the Hepco & Becker would for sure be my favorite choice since it doesn`t have the love and hate relation with the side stand )

I personally like the IXIL SX1 allot since it comes with 2 DB killers and it`s tucked under the bike like the stock exhaust.


Same goes for the Leovince underbody, but just one DB killer.


Besides these two, the MIVV or Arrow aren`t bad either..

Any help at all would be very very much appreciated

Center stand a good idea. Unless you can show me on a dyno where aftermarket exhausts improve performance in real world use at real world rpm's, I can't see it. The main function of aftermarket exhausts for street bikes is to produce profit for the makers and sellers. I know that's heresy, but I say it with over fifty years experience in every facet of motorcycling. Your bike and your $$$$, do as you like, but I think there are many more improvements that produce value and safety rather than annoying noise. Happy motoring.

It depends on the bike, how its ridden, what RPMS your happy at etc.. Some bikes respond really well, especially when you dig a bit deeper into fueling, etc. My ULY had very noticable gains all across the RPMS with the drummer exhaust, however I had a laptop with ECMSPY hooked up to and tweaked the fueling and timing as well..Others, you are correct all you get is more noise. From reading this forum the last nearly 2 years, it seems the Versys falls into that category, with an average minimal gain. But, some folks just like the sounds, I suppose that's good enough reason to buy one as well.

I know, I know.. it`s not like I will be riding without the DB killers out, deafening everything that surrounds me. I just really like a bike with a more growling sound and I feel like the stock exhaust won`t give enough growl satisfaction

Anyone have any opinions on this? I'm digging the look. Anyone ever hear of the company and how they are? Not looking for something loud.

The ixil sx1 has a catalytic convertor too so it wont screw up you pollution control.

Looks like an old thread, but I am curious about centerstand + aftermarket exhaust combos. Any updates from anyone?
