I’m curious to what exhaust people are running on the versys.
sounds cool can you post some pictures?I run a custom hybrid exhaust with a Muzzy header and mid-pipe, and a welded Magnaflow muffler with Yoshimura quiet insert on my 2007. I also smooth matched the engine's exhaust port outlets... Power and performance are outstanding.

These are from 2011 -Here's the custom Muzzy/Magnaflow/Yoshimura exhaust completed... According to the forecast, I'll have it out on Monday finally, and see how it runs and sounds.
That’s the one thing I’m worried about is it being to loud.Had a Full Exhaust Arrow system when I got my bike: View attachment 187416
Van's, pick up trucks, and cars keep tailgating and racing me which stopped when I reinstalled the stock exhaust (good thing the previous owner kept it).
Aside from others getting triggered and aggressive, I also can't last as long even with the silencer installed. The aggressive engine braking is also tiring to manage in comparison to the stock exhaust (all without ECU related modifications).

In my opinion stock also looks better and cleaner, with only the disadvantage of being heavy.
My 'across the street' neighbor started-up his H-D (muffler-less?) yesterday while I was working in my shop. IF it was legal I'd walk over and shoot it (the Harley!) dead.Original Kawasaki exhaust systems on BOTH my '08 and '15 V650s.
Stock exhausts on the Versys, and on all our bikes except the first one. I prefer a quiet ride. And I'm a cheap bastard.
Watch when a fire-truck or ambulance w/ sirens blaring pulls up behind MANY vehicles, who do NOT pull over. IF the drivers can't hear THEM, how will they hear the H-D "loud-pipes-save-lives" crowd...?...A loud exhaust is tiring and unless it is deafening the cager with their windows up and talking on the phone will not hear you until it is too late....
