Was it listed for a Versys, and does it have the crossover pipe like OEM?
Who did you order it from, and for how much $ ?

So it is an EX650 header without the Versys crossover pipe... They mention:

•Delkevic down pipes are manufactured from 304 Austenitic Stainless Steel which offers truly exceptional value for money and superior corrosion resistance to that of Ferritic Stainless Steel (grade 409), ensuring your bike continues to provide miles of service and pleasure.

Then they go on to say:

•Delkevic uses high quality 1.5mm section 304 Stainless Steel tube for the primary section of the exhaust, which is mandrel formed to ensure uniform cross section and dimensions, ensuring a guaranteed fit and performance.

That's just like the original with grade 304 SS primary tubes (magnet won't stick to it), and grade 409 SS collector... You can confirm it when you get your nicely polished Delkevic header.

I e-mailed them about the difference in price and here's the explanation.

If you purchased this off the website you would get an immediate message that these are on back order for 5 weeks and we can ship it at that time. Or you can purchases this off eBay like you did and receive the product in 7-10 business days as we'll ship it from another Delkevic stores stock. We have Delkevic stores located in England, China, Japan, and Australia hence the higher price.

Thank you
Luke

Wow... 5 weeks wouldn't be so bad after all.


Oh Well... I don't like to wait and 70 bucks is about the cost of a good lunch.

Nice shiny.

Just thinking of an alternative to get a Full system for the V.

The 2012 ER6n and F (ninja 650) have the cross pipes in their headers, the same as the Versys. Pre-2012 ER6n and F doesnt' have the cross pipe. It was an interesting note since Akrapovic has just released a 2012 Full system for the ER6 and it looks sweet. The protruding tail pipe is now covered up. Maybe it fits the Versys ??
