Scrambler Question

How may scrambler riders still have the stock exhaust. I'm trying to decide if I want to make the trade to an arrow or zard, and if it's worth the trouble.

The stock system is way too quiet for me. Fitted the Arrow and now it sounds lurvly.

I have to agree...every time an Arrow-fitted Scrambler goes by I marvel at the glorious sound emanating from the pipes. But, if you are budget minded, the TechBikeParts Scrambler exhaust is basically a close copy (both in looks & sound) of the Arrows, at a fraction of the cost.

I've got the stock exhausts at the moment. I bought the bike with them & haven't been able to get the cash to change.
To be honest I like the look of the arrows but I'm not bothered by the sound. I'm defiantly looking into it because I think the bike looks 'right' with the arrow.

I do still have my stock exhaust system, sadly I've never heard it running on my bike as it was taken off new. So I'll never really know just how much better the un-baffled Arrow really does sound...........

It'll be no trouble and worth it just to find out.......

Having heard a '16 Scrambler with the Arrows pipe just last Friday, its awesome. If you can swing it w/out giving up other more functional gear/mods, go for it.

I heard that bike and the new Street Twin fired up and both sounded simply awesome.

stock scrambler just doesn't look right to me ... too big or sticks out too far, and too many pipes! Arrow looks so much better. Don't know about the sound comparison.

Bought the Scrambler so I could buy an Arrow, not the other way around.

I put the Arrow on my Scrambler and couldn't believe how much the stock exhaust weighed. That is really heavy.
