Which exhaust on a Mk1?
« on: 09 April, 2019, 10:20:01 PM »
Looking to put a new slip-on on my Mk1. Not looking for increased power, just a deeper sound.

What make have you put on and would recommend and what to stay away from?

Very subjective, but I have Scorpion ovals on mine, build quality is excellent.

Good deep rumbly sound, and opens up to a mighty throaty growl when you're giving it some beans.  :134:
Baffles come out easy enough if you so wish, but I'm happy with mine as standard.

Thanks Shed.
Just the sort of thing I'm after. Not interested in removing the baffles. I've been looking at the Scorpion ovals; like the lifetime guarantee.

I had a pair of Beowulf’s on my GTR 1400. Similar to Shed’s comments on the Scorpions. Still running stock on my Mk2

I had Delkevics on my Mark 1. Lovely fruity sound with the baffles in, and a superb roar without the baffles. But I went back to the standard cans as the bike runs much smoother with them on plus the sound from the Delkevics was a bit wearing on a long journey.

Ive just fitted GP Round Black Widow cans in black s/s. they fitted superbly  sound bloody amazing and look wonderful on the bike.No power loss and look so much smarter. AND £249 with Link pipes, a bargain.

What length did you go for?
Looking at the intermediate 300mm ovals.
