Anybody know how I can get the DB killer for the Scorpion exhaust here in the United States? My dealer has had no luck with Tucker Rocky even though we got the exhaust through them.
I guess I'm getting more responsible in my old age. The stock exhaust was too quiet but the straight through Scorpion is a little too much. Plus, I really don't like the tone; kind of a ratty sound. Almost like there is no muffler at all just straight headers. I'm looking for something with a deep rumble and I think I would be happy with the DB killer; if I could find one.
Guess I got spoiled with the Suzuki twins I had (TL1000S, SV1000N and the 2 SV650Ns). I put Yoshimura cans on (the TL had a full system with race cans, it was LOUD but what a sound) and even the 650 SVs had a good deep rumble. I know it's a different engine configuration (parallel twin vs L twin) but my old Triumph with a straight through muffler has a deep sound also. Maybe it's the lack of a mid pipe on the Versys but it just doesn't have that same deep sound.
I have a Leo Vince SBK, and with the dB killer in, the nice deep sound goes away and it sounds kind of tinny. It's a bit noisy, but then I don't ride around town in second gear all of the time like the squids do. Ride it for awhile, and you'll get used to it.
