Well I decided to put a aftermarket muffler on the katana.
Last month, after looking around I decided a scorpion carbon fiber
would look pretty cool. Got it from cyclegear in town.

I loosened the lower fairing on that side to get a little more room but I really didn't need to.

It took about 2 hours total counting 1 hour of trying to get the muffler clamp on to the muffler :oops:

It is a little louder then the stock one for some reason :lol:
Took it out for a short ride last night after I got done, it sounds sweet going down the road.

Thanks y'all. Later on this month I am going to cut some of the rear shovel off so it doesn't hang down so much.

That is sweet.
Carbon Fibre is the only way to go.

I'm not sure, I haven't seen another Katana (or another bike) with a d&d too compare it too. I hear some loud sportbikes go by all the time but when I'm out I only see harleys.

i dont think my d&d is "stupid loud" in fact i think it sounds pretty damned good thank you very much.

not saying the d&d sounds bad, just that it is pretty damn loud, even for a slip on. no offense

This'll be under the tree Christmas morning. :P

Scorpion shorty Carbon Fibre slip on.
Complete with mid pipe and hardware.

I don't know much about them, but from what I've read, there's not much difference in performance when you only install a slip on.
Hopefully it won't be too loud.

' course this for my Gixxer.
But I wanted you to know this post encouraged me to look at Scorpion.
Let me know how you like yours when you get it on, ok?

Any thoughts? :wink:

I took it out for a longer ride this afternoon. It sounds REALLY GOOD when you twist the throttle all the way open. It doesn't sound like it's about to blowup at 8K like it did with the stock can(at least to me).

That shorty can oughta look good on a Gixxer.

Mine was just over 400. I probably could of looked at ebay more and found a better deal.

I found a stainless steel scorpion for $234. I wanted the carbon but decided against it because of the price and the fact that I have to sleep in the same bed as the wife :lol: The sound is great though. Not as loud as a D&D but loud enough. I shakes the dishes in the house. I love it.

Bro I found the carbon one exactly like this for $240 shipped brand new in the box with warranty from a dealer in Colorado clearing them out. I lucked out! Can't wait for it to get here.

Yes, that thing looks so awesome on there. I have not clamped it down though. I am waiting on the connector gasket as mine is flattened too much. It is so light I thought the box was empty when it got here! Thanks for the post. I can't wait to hear mine. Hurry ronayers and send my connector!

Wow, looks great! I was deciding between the Scorpion and the Yoshimura RS-3, and I decided to go for the latter because of the price. But I'm sure the Scorpion sounds better!

I have the same one....that stupid clamp was a bear to get on. In fact the first one I stripped...had then send me a new one, and in the meantime used a hose clamp to hold it in place.

They need to redesign that part, but other than that it looks and sounds great.

That clamp seriously had me doubting my mechanical abilities.
