Exhaust scrambler 1200 xe

Hi there. Do any one of you know of any brand that already fabric a non homologated exhaust for this bike. I had a non homologated arrow on my old scrambler 900 that was fantastic. The current homologated arrow for the 1200 xe is a fake. The 90hp of this 1200cc aren't enough to give spark to the bike. Your comments are very welcome. Thank you.

I’ve been educating myself on this and as far as I can tell, free spirits is the first and only one to make anything exhaust related (the de-cat pipe).

I am certain that a lot of the aftermarket manufacturers have something in the works. If I come across something, I will come back and edit/reply to this post.

"Spatk" you mean you find it slow?

YES. In general is a great machine but am missing 10-20hp... very comfortable but I would rather like a little bit more of nerve. Top speed for example 185km/h. It exceeds legal speed by far but for a motorbike of 1200cc I expected 200+.

Wait! I answered before checking the Web you said. What you found it is exactly what I was looking for!! I already contacted my dealer and said they can become a distributor and order one for me. As a private I can't do it, they only work thru distributors. So THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND HELP. Once I have installed it on my bike I tell you how it goes... 👍💪👊✊👊&#x270 a; thanks.

Happy to have helped. 😎 Below is the link for reference.

If/when you get it installed, try and post a video of it. I’m sure there are more than a few people that would love to hear it.

Being old and brought up when 100mph was the benchmark, now owning bikes with a top end of 130+ /0-60 in sub 3 seconds I suppose I'm a bit past the time of wanting more. These 1200s are quite capable of well over 120 rwhp because I help build the air/oil cooled from their pathetic 50-55 rwhp to 100+ so I guessing with work they will deliver. When these bikes really take off I am sure plenty of upgrades will come along, cam/maps/exhaust/head work. I think they will be competitive in adventure events like Baha and Paris Dakar ( no longer Dakar).

I got my Free Spirit H-Pipe de-cat in the meantime. Sorry to say but I don't see that it makes any difference or if there is any, it's practically imperceptible, whether it concerns sound or power. I don't recommend that upgrade while a silencer with db killer removable is not available. If you find one of those or a tutorial abt how to remove the db killer on the fabric Arrow kindly let me know. I don't complain to have made such an upgrade but let's say it is a good upgrade provided you can also remove the db-killer of the silencer. Thanks for the information. Kind regards.

How old are you vitesse? Am 52. Interesting what you say abt that you help build the air/oil cooled! Actually the this bike is a marvel. Extremely sweet. Super comfortable. Without smallest vibration. On the other side am missing little bit more nerve. Am sure as you say once these bikes definitely take off plenty of things can be done. Thanks for all. Kind regards.
