  1. Factory Muffler / Pipes

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I recently purchased a 2002 DL1000 with 41,740 miles on it in great shape. It was gently ridden by the previous owners and was well taken care of with a lot of after market goodies. It came with Holeshot Performance pipes. They are a bit too loud for my taste. I understand this is somewhat...
  2. LeoVince exhaust for 2017+ Vstrom 650's ???

    DL650A - 2017+
    Just curious, does anyone know why LeoVince does not have an exhaust option for the 2017+ Vstrom 650 models? They have exhausts for the Vstrom 1000's. Given the popularity of the Vstrom 650, I'm surprised they don't have ANY exhaust options for the 2017+ models. 2020 and still nothing. I...
  3. EXCVA Sensor Fail-Recommended fix?

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Has anyone spent time doing exhaust repair on the DL1000? I have an F1-C46 error code (EXCVA sensor failure). I've checked to see if the EXCVA is working properly and believe that it is. The EXCVA motor operates 2 cables that operate the open/close on the EXCV. These cables are easily checked...
  4. Stock Exhaust System with After Market Slip-On

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hi, New guy here, Simple question (I think), do you know if a slip-on exhaust fits the OEM exhaust system? I want to buy an Arrow/Akrapovic for my 2016 XT Vstrom but I am not sure if it fits. Do you recommend any other slip-on? Thanks,
  5. Danmoto Exhaust

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Does anyone have any experience with Danmoto muffler on the DL1000A? I was looking at the Carbon MK2 and the JISU Black. Seems like a real bargain if they are any good.
  6. Bashed My Exhaust

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    So I did a stupid thing and went over a curb that was too tall without a bash plate on. Put a dent in the exhaust and shifted it backwards. Now I don't know how much really moved back or if shifted from both header pipes. Mounting bolts are at an angle. I'm thinking maybe new harware and...
  7. Warning! Black Widow Exhausts - DL650

    Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    I have a 2010 DL650 and I am currently undergoing a very expensive ballache because I bought a Black Widow full system and it does not fit the bike. I've got a video on it which I can't link as I'm too much of a greenhorn here but the long story short: I went to a garage for fitting it as my...
  8. Please help decide - Two Bros, Yoshimura or Scorpion

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    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...
  9. 2005DL650- TBR Exhaust Problem

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Second post! (sorry i messed up the first one in case you saw it) Anyways, So I purchased a Two Brothers 3/4 exhaust kit a few months back and installed it about a month ago. Immediately I noticed the middle pipe segment that links to the headers did not seem to line properly. Anyways, long...
  10. Bodis Exhaust - comments ?

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    I'm all over the place on exhaust for my V2. I came across these but can't find much about them. SDL1000-003 SUZUKI V-Strom DL1000: BODIS EXHAUST
  11. Two Brothers Exhaust left side too long?

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    So I just got a new Two Brothers Exhaust system part # 005-480406DM-B for a 2005 dl1000 in the mail yesterday. I installed it and it looks great except for one problem, the left muffler sticks out the back 1 1/4 inches farther than the right muffler. I called two brothers explained my problem...
  12. Anyone Have this Exhaust?

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I already tried swapping the stock exhaust for one from an sv650, but the center stand was in the way and I didn't want to remove it. Just looking for improvement in sound and weight; don't expect much for performance. I'm on a budget and don't want to spend $600-1000 for just an exhaust, and I...

  14. danMoto GP High Mount SS Exhaust

    General V-Strom Discussion
    danMoto GP High Mount SS Exhaust on Wee Some pics from my modified danMoto GP High Mount Stainless Exhuast on my 07 Wee. This slip-on kit is actually for a Triumph Speed Triple, but I used a exhaust adapter and the Y collector from a 04+ SV650 to create it. Best part was the price, $155...
  15. Yoshimura Exhaust

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Does anyone have any knowledge about whether the Yoshi 2012 3/4 exhaust will work on the 2013 model? I have called Yoshi and they tell me that they have not verified the fitment for the '13 yet. I suspect that it does, since the Akrapovic lists theirs for the '12 and '13. Any imput would be...
  16. Test (video): Exhaust Original vs. Akrapovič Suzuki DL 650 A V-strom L2 (2012)

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    The video was shot with a Canon EOS 5D mark III. The sound was recorded through a built-in microphone, which was set to manual sensitivity so that the sound is comparable to the second video. Test: Exhaust (výfuk) Original vs. Akrapovi
  17. Skid Plate + Aftermarket Exhaust.... What works?

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    So I like my PWD crash bar/skid plate system, and while installing it, I noticed that it said it doesn't work with aftermarket exhaust systems. After installing my new Leo Vince pipes, I remembered that little disclaimer :green_lol: So now I'm in the search of a solid (steel, not...

  19. 2012 Exhaust

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi - it appears that Arrow now have a pipe for the new 2012 650 - although it is called a 2011 on their website (photos show it as the new one though Arrow Special Parts) - anyway, here in Aus I can't find anywhere to import it yet - and I can't see any other options at all - really don't like...
  20. Another exhaust thread

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Hello to all, I recently purchased a fairly well farkled '06 Wee; I love the bike and am looking forward to putting a lot of miles on it. However the stainless Scorpion muffler a PO installed is a little much for me; are there any options for a quieter slip on or possibly retrofitting a baffle...
