Dominator R - Slip On Exhaust

I went low cost, after reading several reviews and watching youtube videos I decided on the Dominator Round slip on from Poland. The goal was to get rid of the giant heavy can, lose some weight, and improve the exhaust sound to drown out the 1000's mechanical noise

$260 all in (Canadian Dollars), including UPS brokerage/custom fees, shipping and product. Took 10 minutes to install, perfect fit. Tried with baffle out and in. Too loud with the baffle out, unless you're a fan of Harley's. With the baffle in it sounds great, almost stock at idle and cruising, but with serious grunt under load.

Very happy with this purchase. Quality piece, looks well made. Unbelievable that something can come all the way from Poland at this price.

Weight, with exhaust, connecting pipe and baffle comes in at 2230g or 4.9 pounds.

Looks great , I'll have to check those out. I'll consider that one, as long as it doesn't make too much sound on the highway at 65 +

Can't even tell at cruising speeds. Twist the throttle and you know it's there.

I can weigh it when I get home. But I suspect somewhere around 15 pounds.

very nice, been looking around the Canadian online stores, most are between $650 - $1300.... seems a little crazy for just a can.

does that one need repacking? just curious as to why so much cheaper.

Can't say for sure since I have no baseline to compare against. It's an easy can to open with hex bolts all around. So opening and repacking would be an easy job if needed.

My understanding is that all exhausts eventually need repacking. As to when, that's where you run into debates.

If that muffler holds up it is a heck of a value. It looks good, the header pipe seems well made, and i don't think it is possible to beat the price.

I'll keep you posted on how it holds up. If it's positive you should engage them for a bulk/vendor arrangement. I would rather buy from you than an overseas entity
