Delkevic Exhaust (custom)

I've had Delkevic before on an NC700X. Good quality and sound pipe, and it came with a DB killer baffle. The problem is they don't make a kit for the V2 yet (+14 DL1000) so I bought one of their generic stainless silencers and went to town on some 2" elbows I have collected over various exhaust projects.

The ID of the OEM exhaust pipe is exactly the same size as the OD of 2" mandrel bends so I put a few cuts in the end of the pipe so the clamp would have something to press down into the custom bend I made. The first bend was about a 55 degree bend upward. That alone put too much of a slope in the pipe and the end of the silencer would hit the OEM hard bag, so I welded another partial bend kicking the pipe down at less of a steep angle. This pushed the pipe backwards a few more inches but no biggie.

Love the sound, just like the Yosh pipe. If anything I wish it was a bit louder but this works. It's not even remotely obnoxious.

That worked well. Did a similar thing with a 2 brothers can when i first got my V2. All the brands were telling me 6 to 12 months before kits would be out. Bugger that says I. Cant carry that hoover any longer
