Looking for slip on exhaust recommendations...

I'd never broached the subject to my wife of putting a new exhaust on my V, then a funny thing happened this weekend. A family member showed up at a family event on his Kawasaki Ninja with a Yoshi carbon fiber exhaust. I took it for a spin and she loved how it sounded and requested that I make my bike sound like that.

Score!

I knew she'd never be okay with me spending the money on an exhaust unless it was her idea.. turns out I was right.

Now I'm looking for your recommendations.

I've previously done a bit of research and was leaning towards the Yoshi before this weekend, but need to know which model works on our V. Plus I'm interested to see what other brands you guys might suggest.

Thanks!

If I hadn't have picked up a modded Jardine I would have dropped the coin on a Leo Vince.

I love my Leo Vince underbody. Looks great, sounds great; it gives the bike a distinctive tone without being a droning sound or overly loud (at least with the dB killer in). I'm very impressed with the build quality.

I have the Leo Vince underbody exhaust also. Nice low growl, I left the db killer in as I don't like obnoxious. I liked that it mounts in the same place as stock, centered under the bike. I would think it's not a great option if you're going to do a lot of off-road riding, but I don't expect to leave the asphalt.
Good fit and finish, easy to install.

Almost four years runing between the stock muffler and a Cherry Bomb. Lots of info on it here and I still think its the best sound for dollor spent. inho.

It will be very expensive to put a 4 cylinder motor into your Versys. That is the only way to make it sound like a Ninja. Sorry

Hey there,

This mod has been done quite a bit, a search would give you more information than I can but here is a cut and paste from my video.

The muffler is a Cherry Bomb Turbo #87701. You can get it at any NAPA Auto parts store for around $35 plus a "1-11/16 to "2 connecting pipe and pipe clamps. The exhaust tip I just made out of some "2 I.D. bent pipe I had lying around the garage. To hang the muffler I used "1 aluminium flat bar bent to fit and bolted it to one of the factory mounting holes.

Ninja 650R has basically the same engine, and the same sound.

You guys took me too literally... haha.

It doesn't have to sound exactly like a Ninja... she (and I) just wanted it sound lower and sportier.

Thanks Invader. That Delkevic looks pretty good.

Which Yoshi model is this and how/where did you get the 6 inch extension? I like how the exhaust actually comes out from below the bike like this.

I ordered a Delkevic SS70 last week. It should arrive tomorrow and I hope to install it on the weekend. I'm excited to make a little noise in the neighborhood.

This is the only exhaust I've seen on the Versys that comes out and up the side a bit, as all exhausts should!
