PostSubject: Aftermarket Exhaust   Fri Apr 15, 2016 5:36 pm

So I had to return the GPR exhaust that I bought from someone on Ebay. They did not properly advertise it and it appeared to be for the models with no O2 sensor. That did not stop me. After a little research I ended up ordering yesterday one of the Delkevic slip-on mufflers:
18" Stainless Steel Oval Muffler to fit Silverwing FSC600 (2002-2014)
I don't know how it performs on Swings, but from what I saw on you tube and other places this model should work well. I should be getting it some time next week and I will report back once I have it installed. I think with the K&N filter, Dyno Power Commander and this new upgrade I will gain some good horses.

Cheers,
Mad

Delkevic are a pretty good exhaust system for the price. I have them on 2015 FJR and 1975 CB750. They look good are well made and sound decent. And yesterday order for the Swing.

I noticed that it does not have a heat shield. Would that be a problem for your pinion?

I think it is back far enough to not to be a problem.

I don't think a heat shield is needed, if so Delkevic would have added one.

So I got the muffler today and installed it. Honestly it is a under 30 min job. Love the sound. I will run some tests tomorrow to see if performance increased, at least in 0-to-60. It looks hot!!!

Cheers,
Mad

Hot to the touch also? Let us know if it gets hot to the touch after riding for a while. Thanks

I rode the bike to work this morning, partially in a stop-and-go traffic. When I finally parked it, the muffler was almost hot. Can touch and hold your hand for a few seconds on it without a problem.

Mad

Thanks for the update. Let us know about the 0-60 performance. Did you notice any difference? Again, thanks.

Hey Easy,

So I haven't done the 0-to-60 yet. Not much time between work and home. The difference... Sound - deep and louder, but not too loud. I do think that performance wise, the mid range really picked up. Anywhere between 15 to about 50 mph the bike seems to sprint like a bat out of cave when you twist that throttle, baby!!! Here are some of the pictures of the new look. Not that it really is much different :-)

Cheers,
Mad

Has anyone got a Magnum muffler? There are provided in three lengths and I would prefer the shortest, because of the panniers. It´s american design and made. Is the sound very loud? Magnum muffler

Mad,
I think the muffler bracket should be on the inside of the mount. That is how the original muffler is mounted. It would make the muffler stand up straight.

This is a very good point. I will give it a try once I get her back on the road, after the winter sleep.

Thank you, sir!

Don't know how this Leo Vince compares price-wise but have had this fitted for about 10000Ks now, It's a sweet thing.

Thanks for the informative video. When you have a moment, leave some of your thoughts concerning performance.

I just purchased a '12 Silverwing after riding some 75,000 miles or about 120,000 kms on a Kymco Xciting 500. I tried two on the XC; a GPR and a Zard. Mid range performance and acceleration with both were improved, however, at hiway speeds,rpm was about 300 more.

Bongoman, Unfortunately, I cannot give you a definitive answer to your question because I fitted standard weight Dr.Pulley sliders, a DNA performance air filter and Iridium plugs at the same time. What I can tell you is that this combination has given a slight but noticeable increase in power and acceleration throughout the range with a slight increase in petrol consumption. How much more power is hard to quantify without a before/after dyno test The exhaust note is quite "fruity" during acceleration phases but decreases to a pleasant burble not much louder than stock when speed evens off.

I like the way Leo Vince3 adapted the exhaust to accommodate your saddlebags. That was one of my concerns regarding aftermarket exhaust.

Have you been happy with your Delkevic muffler? Does it work well with your saddle bags? Any problems? I`m just about to order this muffler any day now, but would love to get answers to these questions first. http://delkevic.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=1_946_1352_1513&product_id=10500

Hope it sounds as good as it looks. The site provides lots of info on the muffler; but a pity they don't include a sound clip of it. But maybe they do and I just don't see it.

Good luck with this muffler, Leena.
