Scorpion Serket Carbon DL1000A

Just added the Scorpion and looking good, took all of 10 mins to fit. One issue is that the mounting spacer does catch the bottom of the factory panniers, a little persuasion gets it on. After a chat with the factory technicians I am paying them a visit next Tuesday 25th July to see what mods they need to make.
It looks like 10mm off the spacer would clear the pannier, they might have other ideas. Will update with the results.
Sound is very pleasant not too loud but real nice when you give it some welly accelerating hard. Sound bite to follow.

I guess you are talking about your muffler. Lovely, I suppose. Do it make it go faster or get better mpg's. Or just more Macho to the open ear.
Those with adequate ear protection don't worry about fluff like that.
My argument would be , "It's not a Ducati. don't try to make it sound like one."
I kinda like the air box honk on my G650GS BMW. It's more noticeable than the exhaust note.

I especially like the look on your black bike. Very attractive.
Some people don't like to mess with their bikes and can be forgiven that. Those of us that do, enjoy these changes and I for one like a little rumble. I did just re-insert the DB busters in my aftermarket exhaust because it's bark was a little obnoxious. I love the sound as I wind her up with some throttle. No Ducati, but sounds pretty good.

your talking about the muffler? Looks like a skinny tube that emphasizes the already large unattractive gap under the rear wheel.

Wow, what's with all the hate? Everyone bitches about the huge and heavy stock muffler so someone goes and swaps it out for a little more sound and little less weight and they still bitch.

Huh?. The stock muffler looks best. The big wide space under the back wheel looks bad. So bike looks better with bags or dual mufflers.

Sorry dude, but your comments make no sense. The muffler is smaller in diameter than the stock one, but mounts to the same mounts. Sooo, this gap you having an issue with is the same as stock. So Huh? back to you.

Actually, it even looks like the gap is less with the aftermarket can - it's even longer than stock. In fact, it makes access to the rear brake a lot easier too. Hmmm, now I'm thinking of getting one.

Panniers will hide the gap... Nice can until it falls and hits a rock :-(

The weight savings from stock to most aftermarket cans is amazing.
Justifies larger portions at meals.
Actually the Super Trapp on my '89 BMW GS made a wonderful moaning sound.Especially in the canyons in 3rd gear dancing through the twisties.
I was so much younger then, I'm older than that now. Wah!
