Which slip-on cans require least rebuilding or maintenance
I'm looking at a bunch of slip-on exhaust solutions for 2010 V. Some of the big name popular ones require rebuilds every 15K miles! That means removal, drill out rivets, removing old baffle material, reinstalling, re-riveting, reinstalling can...sounds like more work than I want to do. (I'd rather ride.) Any recommendations for slip-ons that don't require frequent maintenance or rebuilds? (The other criteria is no requirement to re-map engine, etc...just slip-on and go.) Thanks!
Yeh, that'd be a problem. Rebuilding is not a big deal. It's not very hard to do. And, if you don't do it, you probably won't notice anyway. It will get a bit louder and lose a touch of power, but it's so gradual you won't notice it.
"2 years and 17,000 miles on my Ninja 650R so far so good."
Compared to other tested slipons (ER6), Scorpion's is said to offer the most peak horsepower increase, with good gains between 5000 and 6500 rpm. One decibel louder than stock at 4000 rpm, it emits a deep racy sound:
I´d most surtainly would advise you to give the Acrapovic titan a go..
Beautifull craftmanship.. lovely sound..
I bought mine from www.ridersdiscount.com..
They don´t have it on their web page, but drop them an e-mail.. Great service and fast shipping..
"The durability of the damping material depends on the type of motorcycle, riding style, mileage etc. Normally, single and twin cylinder engines produce a stronger exhaust gases wave pulse and a higher temperature. Often, riding on a race track requires noise control.
The insulating material should be replaced when you notice any visual changes on the muffler sleeve material or when the muffler exceeds the noise limit. Please check the muffler visually before every season. In principle the damping wool should be replaced every 2 years."

Get an Arrow slip on for $249 from Pipe City. It comes with a baffle. Stick the baffle back in when you find the muffler is getting too loud. Just thinking out loud. I just bought the silver Arrow for my 2010 Versys. Good color match.

All I can speak for is Arrow. They are affordable, their build quality is excellent, and they don't need repacking.
Yours doesn't seem to need repacking yet at how many kilometers now?

"When do I have to change the glass fiber cartridge on my Arrow silencer?
-Duration of the glass fiber cartridge depends on the bike and on the mileage. Speaking generally, when the cartridge is exhausted, noise levels start to raise up. On the silencer itself, some areas with different surface colour may appear. In this case, we suggest to renew the cartridge as soon as possible."
