Scorpion Can

I've had my TEX now for a little over 4 months. I love the bike, but have never been satisfied with the exhaust. It sounds good out on the open road, but around town it just sounds anemic. After looking over what's available I decided to order a new can from Scorpion. It arrived on Tuesday and I installed it that night, but haven't had a chance to get out & ride it untill today. Talk about a transformation! I am very pleased with the build quality, looks, and the sound of this new exhaust. I'ts got a deep growl to it now that is much louder than the OE can, but not at all obnoxious. My new TEX now sounds like a Tiger should!

I'd love to oblige you guys, but neither one of our digital cameras or our digital camcorder will pick up the sound good enough for me to even post it. It's weird cuz our camcorder does a great job of picking up sounds @ our grandkid's sports & school functions...

Jon, where did you buy your Scorpion exhaust? I would like to get a little more growl out of my TEX, sounds a bit too sewing machine like at low RPM.

Indysuperbikes.com http://www.indysuperbike.com/ They didn't have them listed on their site yet, but can get them. I believe the guy I spoke with there is David. It cost me $515 delivered...

I ordered a Trident stainless can for mine. I've owned on before, decent quality, sound and price. $320 US plus shipping from UK.

Anyone had their seat cable come off? I wanted to lock my helmet up this weekend and couldn't get the seat off. After i got home from camping Sunday and unloaded the bike,i found that the cable had somehow worked itself of the latch.

I got my Granddaughter to record a video for me... Here it is on Youtube. It actually sounds much deeper in person.

Absolutely SICK looking, I noticed they included an inventory list, has anyone actually taken the time to add them up?

Also, how do those tires perform on the roads and how's their longevity?

You notice that the swing arm skid plate that they made special notice of, isnt on there??

And everything is just an aftermarket version of the factory stuff. Crash bars, skid plate, aux lights, taller screen, luggage, etc.
