Compact or Low Mount Exhausts for 2018 Strom 1000

Hi Everyone,

I have been looking for an aftermarket exhaust that either is much smaller slip-on than the stock muffler or a full system that moves the exhaust to a lower profile location. I have been searching the web, but can't seem to find much information.

My previous bike (blown up Yamaha FJ09) had that nice low mount exhaust, which let me get my side cases much closer to the bike than my Strom.

Any direction is appreciated.

Thanks,
Vinnie

here's how my Arrow fit with the factory pannier

I'm pretty sure you can extend the mounting point and rotate the muffler more downward

You can just make a longer rear bracket, the joint in the pipe makes it easy to swing the muffler down.

At one time Rick from this forum was giving brackets away. ???

The muffler needs to be long enough not to melt your luggage.

A friend of mine once cooked all his tin food in a soft saddle bag and it was exploding as we rode along, we could hear it but did not know what the noise was until the next morning.

Lucky he was the last of the group that night.

Is that Arrow system a slip on or a full system? Looking for a slip on for my 2018 DL 650 that doesnít cost a fortune.

I like that. It's nice how your factory side case fits around the pipe. I use seahorse cases, which do not form to anything.

That might actually be the first thing I try now. Thanks for suggesting it! I can probably fabricate one myself.

It looks like a slip on to me. The manifold has that distinct cable thing between bends, right before the muffler joint

I've been running this for the last 8,000 miles.

Much quieter than the Scorpion on my 650. Danmoto also has a couple other style mufflers available.

I think I am going to try fabricating a bracket to lower the exhaust and then install larger pellican cases on the strom. Currently set up with 24L side cases and thinking about switching to 39L.

I also like the danmoto slip on exhaust. I definitely don't want to / have the money to drop on a loud and expensive exhaust for a bike that I ride for 12+ hours a day

Check out the Danmoto JISU slip on. Much smaller and lighter.

You could buy any slipon, and make a custom head pipe and clamp and put it anywhere you like. Won't cost too much to do that.
