Low mount exhaust questions?

Ive searched and searched but cant really find any info on a low mount that isnt offensivley loud.
Ive looked at the GPR, Mivv, Sc project and Comp Werkes and they all seem great, but im not sure on how loud they will be.
What are your experiences?

Also, should i be expecting to loose power from this style of exhaust (compared to high mounts)?

Thanks

Hi, I've got the GPR GPE low mount slipon on my 1050 -05 speedy and I love it. It is definitely not too loud since it comes with 2 removable baffles.

Here's a pic of my bike with GPR exhaust.

I have a Scorpion as it was the only low boy I could find that doesnt stick out at an odd angle. It follows the lines of the subframe and doesnt cover much of the rear wheel. It was also the only full carbon exhaust I could find. It has a large baffle that cuts the noise down so its not overly loud. Just about right for me, makes a great noise but certainly not race bike loud.

Don't listen to them.
Get a Comp Werkes.
Nice and loud with the baffle out.
Just "nice" with it in.
Here's mine.......
It sits at a good angle and leaves the SSSA on full view.
Lovely.
And I can't honestly say I can notice any missing power. But I do notice the reduction in the weight.

Funny seems like everyone likes their own.
I run an SC Projects oval carbon. It did not seem overly loud..... so I took the baffles out. Weight savings for we seemed noticeable esp where the weight is; up high.

I like the Competition Werkes exhaust too. If they had been available with the baffle when I bought the Scorpion, then I might have got one instead.

So go ahead, follow the crowd and get one like everyone else...

As far as looks go ... I voted with my wallet already . COMP WERKS

That said the Only other pipe I would choose is the SC low pipe .

I don't think there is a low pipe out there that is going to make the Speed sound like a sewing machine , and the SC has the baffle to give you options .

The scorpion looks nice too , but with the comp werkes you need not remove the pipe to remove the rear wheel . Time saver .

I ordered a comp werkes last friday. I got an e-mail from them today saying there would be a 2 week lead time on the pipe + the 7-10 days for the finish I wanted. If your in a hurry for it might want to check with them to see if they have any in before you order. I will attempt a video when I finally get it installed.

HPCorse Hydroform. Ran it on the same dyno with the stock pipes, then again with the pipe. Gained next to nothing at the top of the graph, however the mid-range gained 2-3hp between 6500 and the peak. Some TuneECU changes are on the cards though. Either way the pipe looks sexy and sounds epic





Weighs 1Kg so big saving there
