Does your dealership do custom fabrication? Because that will probably take more custom work than most dealerships take on… Especially if it involves eliminating a catalyst which can bring up legal issues for them.
At first glance I thought that pictured an oil filter sticking out of what looks like a Borla or Magnaflow race muffler for a car.
You might have better luck fitting an underbody exhaust from an older Duke 690, like those available from Remus, Leo Vince, Akra, etc. I’ve been curious about fitment of those myself.
@changohot That is a sweet looking Duke 390! Neat little crash bars and I love that frame-mounted bag. Do I spot an SW-Motech rear carrier too? They are excellent pieces of kit, I have one on my MT-07.
Cool, yeah I thought you said dealership in your original post.
You’ll need to carefully take in to consideration the length of the custom header pipe to attach to this, since that can alter the power delivery of the motor.
Keep us updated on what choice you make! I’m interested to see this bike with an underbelly exhaust.
I agree with you, I don’t like the Akrapovic option muffler much. Not horrible, but not great.
Atleast the stock muffler had good sharp lines and angles that match the bike design well, but it is just very large and doesn’t sound strong.
