Cheap no-name slip on exhausts on AliExpress

So after spending thousands on gear and my new bike, I am now looking to spend more on an aftermarket exhaust.

I'm not one to believe that loud pipes save lives... but I would rather a meatier sounding note for my own riding pleasure.

Wife would murder me if I spent $500 or so on a pipe.. but I've noticed there are tons of cheap China no-names on AliExpress. Some as low as $20USD.

Anyone have any experience with these? I would not expect long lasting quality but would give one a try if it's not going to do any harm to the bike or the performance.

There are alternatives between $20 and $500.

First I would do some internet sleuthing and see if a Ninja 300 exhaust fits the Versys. With patience you could find one for ~$100 on eBay or a forum. Or be really patient for someone to sell a used Versys 300 exhaust

Without a tune, any exhaust will have little positive effect on performance. An exhaust would have to be really poorly made to damage the engine, but backpressure is important to performance, so a bad one could hurt performance and be obnoxiously loud... so for $20 a China experiment is low risk, can always put the stocker back on. I balk at the high prices for new exhausts too and just watch eBay and forum listings for used ones, eventually works every time!

Im about to fit a danMoto JISU

Kawasaki Versys 1000 2012-2019 JISU Black [EX-00738] - $145.80 : Danmoto, Motorcycle Racing Parts & Accessories

Seen them on plenty of other bikes over the last 10 yrs and they are standing up well, the only ones ive seen that hav'nt were their first of Carbon ones that have started to fade only.

Kawasaki Versys 1000 2012-2019 Carbon GP [EX-00735] - $135.00 : Danmoto, Motorcycle Racing Parts & Accessories (this a newer version so might be ok)

I'm finding it hard to find used ones here in Australia, there are a few overseas but shipping makes it not worth the trouble unfortunately.

Considering giving one of the cheap Chinese ones a go! If I end up going ahead I'll post the results here.

Delkevic were the first ones I looked at. I prefer the look and sound of them over the other more expensive ones like 2 brothers etc..

Hoping to spend under $100 AUD, here in Australia the delkevics go for around $400 AUD 😥

Those look pretty good. Decent prices too! Let us know how you go would love to see pics and hear it on the bike if you're able to record some video for us.

Thanks. Sounds pretty good, probably not as loud and deep as some other options. But looks great and seems to be the cheapest of the quality/branded ones available.

Will likely pick up a danmoto later in the month 👍

This muffler looks good, is a very reasonable price, and has a removable baffle if you want it louder. https://delkevic.com/stubby-13-stain...300-2017-2018/
