New for the V strom DL1000 2014- DELKEVIC Decat
« on: December 09, 2017, 19:29:14 »
I returned from Spain on my Bike after 3 weeks tour early October on a Thursday.
The following Monday I rode and deposited my Bike at the home of DELKEVIC Exhausts  near Stoke On Trent where my bike was entrusted to them to fabricate and make a decat system for the Veek. (DL1000)  It was returned to me a few days ago, having been with them for about 8 weeks.  I had no issues with this and I was kept well informed all along the process.

Either way I now have the first V Strom 1000 with a Decat system from delkevic along with a rather nice 320mm Tri Oval end can.  The cat is ditched.  The dyno readings are rather nice, better Torque up by about 15% and similar BHP readings.  It looks fantastic, sounds great.  Wanted to give it a run this weekend but dire weather has stopped me, will post some images up.

The only competition they have is from Arrow.  A few on this site  have the Arrow system  and I was going for this until I lent my Bike to Delkevic.   What I do know is the Arrow decat pipe  alone is around 340.  I am not sure what Delkevic will be charging, but I am certain it is far less than this price, and makes it a truly viable addition.  Watch this space for more information.

Have they put a power commander on and set it up?

Knowing Delkevic no they haven't, they try to argue that they setup their systems on a dyno but seeing as DK motorcycles in stoke don't even own a dyno I find it hard to believe do they much R&D apart from copy Motad/OE exhaust systems..

My Bike went in with a PCFC already on it.  :)

 They had it so long, not only for the fabricating of the decat pipe, and then the making of it from the factory in stainless,  but of course all the dyno runs.  I supplied it to them with a stock can; and I am aware they did countless dyno runs  in many different combinations. But in simple terms 'yes' you will need a Power commander Dynojet (Fuel controller or V).  Delkevic are  a Dynojet  approved centre and I have little doubt, as and when 'marketed', there will be an attractive package, but wait and see :grin:.  I will post up some links on 'You tube soon when you can see my Veek on the dyno runs ! 

I recall speaking with you here a while back about your Bike.

Think they are, they are approved Dynojet centre.  I also spoke with Dynojet HO in Preston.  I also have the dynojet maps.

   Sounds a good system mate, getting rid of the cat and exhaust valve makes a good difference.
I am back with the stock end can but decat exhaust, running a pc, power at the top has dropped from a straight through can, but it still has the bottom end and mid range gains that I gained on the full conversion.
   I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures and results.

They must be doing the work off site then because they don't even advertise the service on their website, and Dynojet have dealers listed which aren't even in business anymore so I'd take that list with a pinch of salt..

They had it so long,

They need it that long to have the bits fabricated from China !

For my pennies worth , after much grovelling negotiation delkavic supplied me with one of their first ever decat downpipes for my Honda CB500f  (I already had their link pipe and silencer) and I'm well impressed.
No power commander needed and I've noticed a little more power over most of the rev range with the added bonus of weight loss of around 6kg and some nice noise.

not delkevic, but I'm running arrow headers, powercommmader and o2 sensor removal plugs and all I can say is the DL1000 vstrom comes alive!! The entire rev range now works..... before it felt like anything from 6.5k rev just made more vibration and noise but no more power. Now it pulls happily to the limiter and the pull is there the whole way through.  I love this damn bike even more now!
