Default DL650 lugage & exhaust/muffler issue

I have had 06 wee for 2+ years, love the bike. Any ideas out there on how to make the muffler tucked in closer to the center of the bike like the 1000?

I'd like to hear/see that as well! My current laser duo-tech exhaust is already a slight improvement over stock, but there's room left for improvement.

Not sure about the stocker, but I was noticing just the other day how nicely my Scorpion pipe tucks neatly and close. Not to mention how nice it sounds too--I highly recommend the Scorp.

+1 on the Scorp.

Can we see that from behind?

Here's my Laser exhaust:

Default A different opinion.

I do not see much advantage of pulling a high pipe closer into the bike. I believe what is really needed is a low pipe conversion that would fit below big side bags. Then you would have a great lane splitter with luggage capacity and all in nice 650 package. I even own a titanium GSXR muffler that is much smaller/lighter than stock Wee can and would do fine with a little fabrication. But my priorities lean more toward riding than to developing and fabrication.
