Aftermarket Can
« on: December 28, 2018, 02:29:40 PM »
Hi Guys, I'm new to this forum but I would value the advise of the more experienced hands.

I'm seriously considering a Scorpion Carbon end can (Carbon) for my 2017 S1000 XR SE Sport, does anyone have one, is it any good and do you like the sound, I actually love the stock can sound but not the appearance.
Advice please.

Nothing wrong with Scorpion Exhausts. I looked at them myself but I still think they are a bit to big, but if you like the size and style then should work okay......

Hi mate, smaller louder etc, look up,  lextek, SP engineering, and pipewerx. I’ve had SP on a speed triple 2016, and pipwerx on a cbr954 blade, both very good and well made in UK.
I am waiting to see what full system lextek does in early 19, looked at a couple of cans at the NEC from lextek and I did like them, basically similar to the others so will be just as good.
I have an akra on my XR as it came with the bike, I would like a shorter one :305:

I had an SP Carbon on my last bike and it was good , I was thinking of an Austin race can for the XR.

Hi Bree
How much was it and where from?
Looking on the Toro site and it's seller, no details for XR
