Does anyone have any info on the prospect of an aftermarket high mount exhaust? I have seen some pics of this set up (which you can find here: https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcycles/2015/2015-Husqvarna-401-Svartpilen-Concept) but didn’t know if this was purely a concept thing.May 29, 2018 at 7:09 am #763
Yeah, that is the concept bike. I too have been looking for a high mount exhaust. I found a couple designed for the duke and rc390 that might fit, but I would have to order it from Europe, and I didn’t really like the looks of them. When I get the chance I am going to see what I would need to fab up, to mount the stock muffler(one of the best looking stock mufflers I have ever seen) high, while eliminating the pre-muffler. Looks like if you rotate the mid pipe about 90 degrees it will almost line up.May 29, 2018 at 6:36 pm #767
I was looking at the concept a bit more carefully and realized that it didn’t have the rear mudguard that is on the production bike, which parallels the exhaust. I am thinking now that rather than mess around with the high mount exhaust I might just clean up the back end by tossing the rear pegs, get the simpler exhaust bracket, and put the Akropovic on it. 🤷♂️May 30, 2018 at 4:32 pm #792
Losing that rear fender is one of the first things I plan on doing. Aside from not liking the look, and the fact that it is in the way of chain and other maintenance tasks, hanging all that unsprung weight off the end of the swingarm can’t help with anythingMay 30, 2018 at 11:57 pm #803
I wouldn’t know where to start in taking on such a project. Do you have some ideas you can share?May 31, 2018 at 12:34 am #804
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I am going to fab up a tail tidy bracket for the license plate and signals this weekend, although once I move the exhaust up, the turn signals may interfere/get melted. So I am looking into flush mount options/locations. I will post pictures when done.</p>July 12, 2018 at 8:43 pm #1197
It didn’t work, when you rotate the cat it contacts the spring. So I ditched the high exhaust idea and got a Competition Werkes mid pipe. It is a little louder than I wanted, but between the ceramic coating and the exhaust wrap I had laying around it throws noticeably less heat at my boys. I imagine the rear shock is happier as wellJuly 15, 2018 at 2:03 am #1215
Thanks for letting me know about how this turned out. I just put the Remus slip-on on my bike and I love it, and changed the ECU chip and this made a noticeable difference.July 16, 2018 at 11:52 am #1223
Is it the coober one? Did it fatten the mixture and smooth out part throttle fueling at low revs?July 16, 2018 at 12:03 pm #1224
Yes, it was the Coober ECU. I can’t say I know how the thing works technically; I thought that my Svartpilen was already pretty smooth at low throttle (compared to virtually every other bike I’ve owned), so I can’t say there is a noticeable difference. It seemed to me that there was a dip in mid to lower part of the power band and this is now gone, however, and the power is improved.October 17, 2020 at 11:52 am #32688Daniel TaylorParticipant
So I’ve seen pictures of a high mounted and saw gpr ,I assume you lose ability to carry a passenger too?October 17, 2020 at 10:12 pm #32694SiscoParticipant
someone need to get this 🙂 , I though it was odd looking at first but I kind of wish I got this instead of the ultra shorty.October 18, 2020 at 9:57 am #32695ScubadubbersParticipant
You could always sell me your Ultra Shorty and put the money towards the Bicone.January 4, 2021 at 4:14 pm #33348tomhawakParticipant
I have the Fresco Bicone high mount on my 2019 Svartpilen. Great exhaust, great look, to me the best high mount for the Svart’.
However, the exhaust is a little too noisy to me (I only ride my bike in a crowded city, you are well heard by car drivers, but it s a bit too noisy to me, probably too sensitive ears for me) so I think I will sell it after few months and few hundred kms.
If anyone interested, please liaise with me in private message (not the original db killers on photos but I also have them)

i advise you to wear earplugs, i always wear custom made ones.
i might also have somewhat ‘sensitive ears’ , but i just want to save my hearing and have more quite and comfort while riding.
