Replacement Exahust

Has anyone tried a replacement muffler? - A bit more power and sweet twin noise! A Staintune or Two Brothers appears available...

I've got the Scorpion exhaust on mine. It's been on for about a month, and I'm very happy with it. Great sound, not too loud, and under $300 to your door with amotostuff.com. Check out my write up on it in the "products reviews".

I know I'll catch flak for this but I have an 03 1000Strom that I enjoy as much as any bike I've owned. The only problem was it needed a little more sound, a little Vtwin sound. At the time there wasn't much going on with aftermarket pipes for the big Strom but knowing of the quality of the 2 Brothers equipment I opted for their exhaust system, you'll notice I didn't say mufflers. Quality is top notch, fit is excellent and the sound is great as long as you don't want to rev it beyond 3 grand. Not that it won't run beyond 3 grand but the sound just gets plain loud. Don't get me wrong, I grew up in the late 50's and 60's when glasspacks and cutouts on cars, inverted cones and cutoff pipes on bikes were the rage and to us they sounded great but that was then and this is now. I don't understand why the aftermarket exhaust people don't understand what we want, a great sounding Vtwin with a little volume, not a 2-1/2 inch straight pipe with a muffler shaped thing wrapped around it. If you don't mind the loudness go for it, but after attending some of the local Thursday night bike meets and hearing nothing but straight pipes for several hours I took mine off and sold them.

Staintune is a very popular choice and should be easy to source, since they come from Oz.

Go with the Scorpions or Leo Vince for the 1000's. Scorpions never need repacked and sound sweet and low. Leo's sound about perfect with baffles in, and sound perfectly loud with them out. The sound is nice and deep either way. Holeshot performace also has top notch exhaust cans that aren't ear splitting loud. They are about as good a fit and finish that you will find.
