Now have the prototype full Delkevic exhaust fitted. Less weight more power and.. less handle bar vibration !

  :029:Mine is the prototype, once its in production it will be marketed by Delkevic, and mine should be going back to have it fitted and tested, but dont know when yet. I feel its been worth the wait. I first fitted an end can which was much lighter by half than the oem. But apart from look and weight saving it made little difference :006:. I contacted DK as I wanted to remove the pregnant bump-collector box- beneath the bike and guessed that was the culprit for sound and performance suppression ! They asked me to lend my bike for development back in July. New system is much lighter, saved about 20kgs in total. Sounds good and reduced bar vibes too, already have bar end weights which reduced it slightly and the new oem clamp rubber spacers. Was still some vibe and the exhaust has reduced it again almost to nothing ! :305:

forgot to mention this will be a plug n play system once on sale, no electrical or power commanders needed. Uses existing sensors. The brain adapts to the new inputs. :062: Delkevic  end cans are available now and fit straight on, the big improvement has come from the new headers and collector pipes. :037:

Same here, 17 model, bar weights, Arrow headers and Delkevic pipe...little to no vibes at any RPM. The headers have a "floating" lower rear mount, which helps greatly I suspect.

Please keep us posted on this...

Am I reading this right, changing to the Delk full system not only reduced the vibes but SAVED 40+ pounds?  That's 8% of the bikes overall weight.

Any idea on price?  Compared to other similar full systems with a single can on their website it would seem about us$500 would be their target.

I can see some overtime being done when the full system is in production. By the sound of it all the boxes have been ticked and if right 20kg saving is bloody impressive and I can put my diet on hold.
