shorty exhaust for xs
« on: Nov 27, 2012, 16:11:18 »
hey guys.
I need some new mufflers on my bike. the ones on it now are HUUGE! and PO has removed most of the stuff inside them so there lout as hell.



Ive been thinking about adding some pipes to make the headers a bit longer and using some kind of baffles. But I saw that DCC had some pretty nice looking shortys http://www.dimecitycycles.com/vintage-cafe-racer-caferacer-bobber-brat-chopper-custom-motorcycle-exhaust-parts-12-inch-shorty-muffler-80-03310.html

those look like they might be a bit short again, But I was wondering if anyone has some experience with those or similar ones?

Dude.. hit up Rich Craig at Cone Engineering and tell him cafematty sent you.. They are quality mufflers and you can't beat the price.

As you can see these pretty short.. but they have other lengths..


And they sound pretty mean.


They are also working on a new one that's a bit longer and like 20db quieter. I'm going to try and get my hands on some so I can do a compare vid.

If you look in some chopper mags, like the Horse backstreet choppers, there will be all sorts of cool complete exhausts for the XS650 advertised, from several companies. High pipes, 2-1, downturns, turnouts on one side, etc.

I can also vouch for these guys.  I ordered a 2" in and 2" out megaphone for my yamaha triple and couldn't be happier with the build quality and sound.  In fact this is the first thing most bike guys notice first.  AMAZING quality and probably some of the coolest dudes to work with.

What are the prices like from coneeng? I think I saw some stuff from them at barber and liked what I saw.

My shorty megaphone, 2" in 2" out was less than $90 shipped.  I stress the quality cannot be beat.

Sweeeeet!

You'll notice I name-drop the crap out of them... I promise I'm not a paid spokesperson... (although I did get a free t-shirt and a koozie at Barber, haha)... It's corny, but in this day and age, when quality often falls second to cost, when you have a good experience with something, you almost want to shout it from the rooftops.

Rich is a stand-up dude. The rest of their staff that I've dealt with have been suuuper cool. Their product is solid. You can't beat the price. I feel like everyone needs to get in on that!
