The common muffler mod is the Leo Vince 4road exhaust. sounds deeper and provides about a 3-4 hp increase, IIRC.

I would hazard a guess that they have the same internals & that the carbon fibre casing is simply a style statement

I can't say about the Silverwing, but I have a pair of Delkevics on my ST1100. I bought slightly shorter than the normal 450mm., but they sound deep, not too loud and raspy. I've got to liking them.

Quality is not an issue and what you propose will probably sound nicely deeper without being objectionable.

Maybe a stupid question. The sellers give different year model for exhausts on Ebay. Are the pipes different depending on when your scooter has been manufactured? For me the main reason to buy an aftermarket muffler is to cut down the weight of my SW. The sound of the muffler isn´t that important unless it breaks your ears or makes to police get after you. What is the lightest muffler manufactured? I found a Carbon Delkevic Silender, but to be honest it looks a little funny. There´s also a titanium GPR muffler, but the price is somewhat more expensive.

The reason for my question, is that the prices a little bit cheaper in Italy, but the sellers give different year models depending on what they´re selling.

As far as I know, the only difference in the exhausts is that the later models (2008? on) are fitted with an oxygen, or Lambda, sensor. Easy to tell if you have one... there will be like a plug coming out of the top of the exhaust pipe near the back of the floorboard. A wire from it will go up underneath the side panel/seat area.

If you get a silencer fitted with the Lambda take-off, just plug it with a suitable bolt if it's not to be filled with a sensor.

I haven't weighed the standard silencer, but as the weight is carried so low down near the centre of gravity, any weight saving is probably insignificant.

Must be some kind of dementia! How could I forget this video I saw just a month ago. There it became very clear the Lambda plug etc., so the year model really matters.

Wow, as a follow up to my inquiry about a carbon or SS muffler, I chose the latter....I invested in the Delkevic 18" oval Stainless Steel couldn't find any sound bites but thru diligent surfing and many questions asked I have to say I went with my gut feeling on this one, everything pointed to a positive end result, so I took the plunge....let me just say I was totally blown away by the deep throaty idle(with the baffle in) and could not believe the beefy yet under control acceleration sound of this sleeper exhaust....If anyone is contemplating a new silencer I would strongly encourage you to look into Delkevic slipon as an alternative choice....quality, performance and price point will have you smiling on your Wing.....

Eaglewings,
Have you already installed the muffler? Seems like you were asking about the muffler only a few days ago. When can, post some pictures. Thnks

That looks like an awesome paint job, how did you do it if you don't mind me asking. do you have painting facilities? Again nice job.

You made it your own, like I did with my blue indicator dash lights and green turn signal lights. I changed the LED's, I posted a video on the project on my YT channel

I look at it this way, I don't trust stealerships so if I can figure it out I will give it as they say the old college try. I have 2 other buddies that have them also so if I really get into a pinch I can ask them for help too.

Not all the videos are interesting, I think the dash illumination LED change out was about the best, I had a lot of fun doing this.

I bought a PCX for my daughter and I can't wait to get that one on the lift, got some mods for that one also. some projects for winter.
