Exhaust options are dwindling

So as the bike ages it seem ever big name exhaust stopped making exhaust for older Stroms in favor of the new 14+.

What's left it seems is Delkevic and Two Bros.

I was reading a forum from 2014 which trashed on two Bros and recommend 3 other systems that no longer exist. But why do people dislike Two Bros and does the Delkevic actually sound good on the 1000? If so I'll give it a shot vs Two Bros.

I don't know about the dislike that people have for Two Bros exhaust, but here is a Delkevic thread with sound clips.

So no Staintune, Akrapovic, Scorpion, Yoshimura, Leo Vinci options any more? Delkevic is excellent for the money, and quite popular here.

Staintune is available but their website says $1400. Akra, Scorpion, Yosh, and Leo are no more. No arrow either.

Two Bros are typically loud. Even for aftermarket cans.

Dale Walker (holeshot performance) still lists slip ons for the Kx stroms. I always thought they sounded good and were among the quietest of the aftermarket cans.

Also, Dale was once an active member of this community and a Vee owner himself. He's been a longtime supporter of the Suzuki GS platform from his drag racing days. I have been a GS owner for over 20 years. Love those bikes.....

Thanks, I don't want the quietest aftermarket can or I wouldn't be changing the stock ones. I want loud but not mind numbing.

All aftermarket cans are louder than stock. The 2bros falls into the mind numbing category. Thats why they aren't more popular. They are firmly in the "loud pipes save lives and annoy everyone and everything around you for miles" camp.

That lines up with what I've read researching them. I'm definitely thinking the Delkevics right now. I'll watch that video tonight on good speakers but it sounds nice!
