Ordered an oval brushed stainless for my 2012 glee yesterday. Can't wait to get it sounding as it should. Thanks all on the thread for your input, made my decision easy.  :fix: Hope there are no lean running issues.

Did you get the exhaust fitted yet Drew? I'm about to pull the trigger on the fuel black stainless oval, I love the bike but it sounds a bit too quiet for me, just hoping that it's not very loud though for touring,
I have used Fuel cans on a few bikes before, always great quality stuff,
I see Delkevic don't offer an exhaust for the 2012> V strom 650.

I got rid of mine because it was annoyingly loud, even with baffles in place. Great build quality though. WhenI was touring around Los Picos last year I was so glad I put the stock one back on!

I have a stock exhaust that is decatted, with baffles ligthtly modded in the fs section.
If you are in NW, I'm happy to take you for a spin with my similarly modded system.

Thanks Mark, you may have saved me a fair bit of cash and hassle, always wanted to tour the Picos myself, hopefully someday.
Where are you located Hondaman? NW England?

I got the one off Mark, I like the extra noise and the look, plus it's about half the weight. I did run it for my 50 mile commute from work once without the baffle in and it sounded like a ww11 Spitfire was following me, good news was no one tailgated me on the A14 though  :lala:

I think you mean with the baffle 'out' don't you Bratton?
I just got a 10% discount offer from Fuel today too, still tempting...

Hello vstroman, not fitted yet. Work pending will get on it in a few weeks. Looks great out of the boxes, quality stuff and arrived very quick. I think it will look great, lets hope the sound is to my liking, its just a dry weather pleasure only bike for me so a good throaty sound will be welcome.

Does the bike feel any lighter with the old one gone?

I doubt anyone would notice the difference.
