Scorpion Option Ready For 3rd Gen

Not sure if this was posted yet, but apparently Scorpion has the 2015 covered ;-)

Don't know if I'm gonna commit though. Mainly because of emissions and price (compared to a slip-on). When installing a full system, is a Power Commander obligatory?

P.S. Is it me? Or does the exhaust look Photoshoped in?

Bumpin' this thread up.

Anyone happen to have the full system installed on a 650?

Any tips on the installation?

Thoughts on the exhaust overall?

What I have been able to find is the instructions are completely lacking. Only a parts reference picture.

Thanks.

Unless you really need the extra HP than a full system is good otherwise go for slip on. As it is , we normally don't use the full potential of everything we have...including our brain

NO OFFENSE MEANT.

Can't install a slip-on unless I cut the OEM system. It's one piece. Hence the full system requirement.

I installed a mivv on my sons 17 versys last night. took about 1.5hr, had to grind a couple parts to fit. Same thing though, no install instructions just 1 pic (which actually showed wrong mount point) and a parts diagram.

Raspadoo, that Mivv is pretty sick sounding! Like a baby Tuono or something...

According to Motorcyclist magazine there is negligible change in power output and perhaps a decrease in runnability with an aftermarket exhaust unless a power commander or similar device is installed to adjust fueling to suit lower backpressure exhaust.
