Welcome aboard. First off if you use the search function you'll have a ton of info immediately instead of having to wait for responses as this has been discussed alot before. You really can't go wrong with whatever you choose. It's going to come down to personal taste and how much $ you have/want to spend. And nowadays simply finding some of them and alot of the good ones aren't even available any more. As far as sound I don't think there's an aftermarket exhaust that's been made that can make this bike sound bad. If you're on a a budget you may want do the bafflectomy on your stockers and you'll get most of the sound of aftermarket pipes. Along with proper jetting you may pick up a couple hp but it's mainly going to be a weight reduction, sound, and looks thing.

Thanks for the Info!! I'm new to the Forum Thing!! I was just wondering if anyone had good success-(Bike Running Mint) w/a particular setup Jardine, Erion, Two Bros, Ect... w/what Jet Kit & Setting? My friend had the RC51 w/Mig Highmounts & a Power Commander & it sounded & ran mint, Unfortunately Mig is no longer and I lack fuel infection

I would not recomment high mounts to anyone. The pipe has melted the heals on a pair of my track boots already. I've put guards on them over the winter, but to me, it's not worth it. I bought the bike with the hi-rise pipes on it, and it does look nice....just not functional.

That and the first place the bike touches down is the header in a right hand turn

So on the up side they do look cool

but the down side is burned boots, more weight, more cost and you also loose 1-2hp due to longer exhaust system length without changing the cam timing to account for it.

That's why I have low mounts on mine

I love how my wolf racing high mounts sound, real loud and growly, but a nice tone. and agreed with the high mount heel burning, it's all about foot placement, i only noticed burned heels when i'm in a wheelie and my foot is positioned differently

Hello Burnin! welcome to the Unofficial SH Forum. And since we are officially unofficial, then we need not be too concerned with propriety, huh. lol.

Therefore, I don't intend to highjack this thread, but since you're inquiring about aftermarket pipes, maybe we can throw other possibilities into the mix. Like Capt says there's much info on aftermarket pipes at the push of the search function, however, you can also read that some members have done all kinds of things with their OEM pipes, i.e., holes in the rear section, baffle removal of different degrees(1,2,or3), shortened mufflers to varying lengths with a baffle or none, etc.

The thing I was wondering is, given the exhaust alterations mentioned above, why is it necessary to be limited to modding OEM pipes, a few new aftermarket pipes or some used slip-ons that have been discontinued, when it seems plausible that you could use any slip-on you like or can get at the right price if you can get the brackets and mid-pipes to fit. This would offer many more options in terms of variety, availability, and price, and there are some cool looking designs out there made only for other bikes.

I certainly know that companies develop and sell these slip-ons based on dyno testing and that they are matched to each bike for performance and physical fitment; however, if forum members can do everything imaginable to the OEM mufflers and tune them to their satisfaction, it seems logical that we should be able to do the same with any slip-on, right?

Yeah for sure Nath. And I think most companies mufflers, especially the generation of exhausts made when our bikes were made, pretty much had the exact same mufflers for a superhawk, an rc51, a cbr, R1, whatever. I've seen so many of them whether it be two bros, jardine, d&d, leovince, hindle, akrapovic, whatever... Matching up any mufflers to some midpipes is only a matter of a little careful pipe expanding and maybe welding up someplace to hook some springs for the ones that use them. Some, like the chrome jardine mids w/ round black mufflers are interchangeable with D&Ds as is. The possibilites are endless, including all the new styles out there now. Probably going to have to resort to this more and more as exhausts get harder to find. And it's really a must do for these bikes because they really sound awesome.

Somebody posted this photo a while back. It was for using the stock mufflers to have more of an up swept look. I don't have all the details but here is a start.

Just to add a note here, I have contacted these guys, first to get inlet size ( it matches the mids I picked up from someone on here a while back) and the other day directly from the e-bay listing asking if they had a set to match the VTR and was answered that "at this time we do not have LINK pipe's for the VTR, so be aware that you should call them if you're going to order from them and verify. For me all I'd need is the cans, so for the price I'll probably try 'em.
Now, for oil I'm using Rotella-T and thats all I have to say about that.

did you see this:

http://www.delkevic.us/?section=shop&mode=model_search

it's under FX firestorm, but it should be the same as the SH.

nuhawk and I were just being sarcastic about the oil thread, but i heard reports from a reputable source that there is a danger of compulsive gambling addiction onset as a negative side effect caused by having too much money available from motorcyclists buying cheap oil.

i just looked at the delkovic web site. i'm impressed with the apparent value their products offer, but i have a couple questions.

what is up with the name? is it a rip off of a akropovic?

how can they sell dual slip ons for $280 and single slip ons for $180?

how can they sell wheels for $180?

if this stuff is for real i say kudos to them. has anyone bought anything from them? good or bad experience?

Welcome to the Forum & to the pleasures of the SuperHawk. Choosing exhaust for one's bike is like choosing a condom you might prefer. It's a personel prefrence. I've been very happy with the BlueFlame Evo's with duel outlets. This way you have up to 4 different choices of sound.

I'm having the same questions. I'm looking at getting into a nice sounding exhaust without paying up the a** for it. Anyone with experience with the delkevic cans? I was also looking at the D&D. Wow so confusing.....I had an M4 on my SV and it sounded awsome and now again I have to chose. Help!!!!!
