Please help decide - Two Bros, Yoshimura or Scorpion

Hi guys,

I have '16 Strom 650 and want to upgrade exhaust.
There are 3 choices available (not in particular order)

1. Yoshimura
2. Two Bros
3. Scorpion

There are other brands but Im thinking about those 3. Can you provide feedback (if you're familiar with particular brand) and advise which one would you recommend.

Thanks a lot and ride safe!

Where's the vote for leave the muffler stock?

The only thing an aftermarket muffler will do for the bike is make it louder (OK and a bit lighter).

Loud bikes are bad for the sport, leave it stock.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

Hi,

Personally, I preferred the quiet sound of the stock pipes.

5kg lighter I'm happy enough with the stock pipe but that weight saving sure would be nice!

I really like my Yoshi 3/4 exhaust. It's not as loud as a stock hd, has that deep Ducati tone, and looks great. I did need to trim the back end of the big Altrider skid plate to fit around the lower pipe.

I forget where I saw this, but apparently pipes marked with E4 are built to the new Euro noise standard, which means they will change the tone of the bike, but not necessarily make it much louder. So for anyone who's concerned with installing too loud of a pipe or being a good ambassador of "the sport", that's always an option.

I'm in the same boat. I don't really want to make my bike a whole lot louder, but I would like to get a deeper rumble. The weenie sound of the stock pipe is a bit annoying.

Gotta love getting the “you’re dumb for thinking about changing the exhaust” response.

I hope you buy a yoshi or two brothers and it’s ridiculously loud and you love it. Ride on

Go with your ear....heart....and wallet of course!

I'd tell you what the Delkevic is like when I install it, however I'm down with the flu and the forecast is calling for over a foot of snow on the weekend. Bloody hell!
