I need to treat myself to a new end can. Not a full system.

I quite like the Scorpion

Is that a Scorpion can with the blackout look??

Looks really good either way.

The end can in the photos is the black Scorpion one. . That photo has black covers on the exhaust link pipe.

only thing to bare in mind with scorpion cans (and I love mine) is that most that I have seen involve taking an angle grinder to the original system to fit on. If you are happy to do it then no worries, but if you think you may ever wanna go back to stock just something to check out and bare in mind.

Cheers for the heads up. I'll check with the seller before I decide.

Just been on their website and downloaded the fitting instructions, looks like they are fine for your bike, but you can always double check, it just says remove orgigianl, replace with scorpion exhaust basically, mine specifically told me where to cut so think it is fine!

Nice one (y)

I have emailed them anyway just to make sure it can be fitted with the panniers.

Thing I like with scorpion is you can get the end an and then just get the headers and downpipes to swap it to a full system at a later date if you want to.

£950 doesn't seem to bad for a full titanium system when you look at what Ducati and Akrapovic charge.

Agreed. The akrapovic end cans are 2700 and the full system just over 4k. Completely ridiculous (devil)

I'm not particularly bothered about a full system.

I like the Scorpion. Looks like the same as mine Carbon Serket slip on. The quality is top notch and the customer service is excellent. I was on the fence of Yoshi or Scorpion and due to price and customer service just thought scorpion were a good way to go.

Suits your bike too Kwacky

Datatag

Quickshifter.......

(wasntme) No Crash Bars (as per your image), or does it come with them & the skidplate anyway.?

Fwiw I think the Scorpion can is an attractive looking silencer.
However to me it actually looks worse in black & with the black covers on the link pipe. The effect is to make the bike as a whole to look visually much heavier.

I personally prefer the Arrow, or something like the offering from SC Project.:

Crash bars and skid plates are standard. This is what the bike looks like in standard trim

That SC project is a full system. That's probably why it looks lighter ;)

I need an end can that will fit with the panniers. A lot of the aftermarket cans on offer don't do that.

MRA Light tint sports screen and black Scorpion can on order.

The screen is slightly shorter than the stock and has a different profile. A few owners have moaned about buffeting from the standard screen and a taller screen makes things worse. If I don't like I can always sell it.
