To my ears, it sounds just fine.
If I ever decide to go in another direction (who knows) I'll really need to think which system I'd want. I have a '16 red/silver Scrambler and just haven't seen anything that would go with that color scheme.
If anybody has some pictures of the red/silver Scrambler with aftermarket pipes, I'd like to see them.
I didn't mind the sound of the stock pipes, but they were a bit too big, flashy, and chromey for my taste. However, I loved the double high pipe look and have always thought that the Arrow 2-1 looks incongruous with the otherwise retro styling of the bike. I tried a pair of VW peashooters for a while and while they look good, they sound absolutely silly. I ended up going with the British Customs shotgun pipes, even though they are a little pricey for what is, as far as can tell, little more than two 1-foot pieces of polished steel pipe. They look fantastic, though, and sound great if a bit loud.

There is an Italian company whose name escapes me that makes a very nice looking set of double pipes for our bikes, but they are expensive and obscenely loud.

Check out the Scrambler photos thread, I am sure that somebody has posted some aftermarket pipes on a red/silver Scrambler, that makes up half of the last few years of Scramblers!

When the Scrambler caught my eye a few years ago, the mat green is what did it.
Fast forward to present day and it's not available so I let my better half pick the color.
Who knows, maybe the Mrs will get a street scrambler in green. The '16 model is just to tall for her 5'3" body.

I've had a 2-2 stainless steel system fitted to my Scrambler by Down & Out Motorcycles in the UK. It looks great and sounds wonderful.

I went with the TEC.....it's only $375 bucks and sounds great. I personally love the look and wasn't going to shell out $1,000 for an Arrow.

Bottom line.....Get what you like.

Unpopular opinion here, but I like the stock exhaust a lot. The twin, high pipes were one of the reasons I bought the Scram, and, although they are kinda quiet, I do tend to drive into my complex at 2 or 3 AM quite a bit during the summer, and the sewing machine pipes are unlikely to piss off the neighbours.

If I were to replace them at some point, I'd definitely go for another 2-2 style system.

I love the stock pipes.. it's what makes the bike. I'm not a fan of the aarows or the zards. You basically have to make it a more modern looking bike to look good with those..

I have a Zard special edition 2:1. Love it. Looks great and sounds better than it looks. Expensive and worth it.

I agree with you that the modern 2-1 exhausts look out of character for the bike, but to each their own. I don't have to ride those guys' bikes. I'm sure there are plenty of things that I like that others would think are silly. They'd be wrong, but whatever.

Fenders (or mudguards, if you refer) are a different story...
