Straight swap can with luggage and centre stand?
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:13:40 »
How do folks, I've searched the forum for a while and this has probably been covered numerous times but I can't find a straight answer.

I'd like to replace the stock end can with something a bit more noisy (for want of a better word). But don't want to be bothered with replacing the full system. Ideally just a straight swap, unbolt the stock can and bolt on the new one. I have factory Suzuki metal luggage / rack and a factory centre stand so want to retain these. Any ideas? (oh it's a 2011 650, pre-model upgrade) TIA

I think you replace the full system on those bikes. I think Hondaman did a post years back when he gutted the catalyst out of his bike. Not sure if he also modified the end can too, but it is a fully welded assembly. The early wee bikes (pre 2007) could have the old end can cut off and a new can fitted but once catalytic converters were fitted (all 650s 2007 onwards) that option wasn't available. I modified the outlet on my wee (2009 model) to make it loudererer and that was a success right up to the point when the new owner took it for an MOT, but that is another story...

Ah OK many thanks, I guess that explains why I couldn't find the answer I was looking for.

I've read that compatibility of aftermarket exhausts and the centre stand is an issue? I guess what I'd probably be looking for then is one that is compatible with centre stand, luggage rack and has a removable baffle that I can put back in at MOT time.... help! :shrug:

Try Delkevic or MTC exhausts?. I The GPR system is centre stand compatible too.
