Hello all.

I just bought a 2017 SCR950, I’m more than happy with the motorcycle. The only detail I’m not confortable with is the exhaust the former owner had. Is a Yoshimura R-34. I want to change it for the original one.

Is there any one interested in swapping the exhaust pipe ?
or is there any advice of how is the best way to do it?

thanks a lot

I would be interested, but I am pretty sure that the shipping costs to the U. S. would be expensive. Be patient, I'm sure that someone on your side of the pond would like to have that! Good luck. Jevers

Andres,

Welcome - whereabouts are you?

Im not surprised you want to change that - it looks bloody ridiculous!

Original SCR pipes come up on eBay occasionally - keep an eye on there. There was one on there recently, TBH, but I can’t find it now though…..

Bear in mind you’ll also need the mount too, unless you have that? (The picture looks like the Yoshi is hung from the pillion peg - is it?)

You may be able to also fit a Bolt (XV950 in the U.K.) exhaust (again, if it also has the mount) - they come up for sale more (as there is more of those bikes circulating than SCRs), but the exhaust would sit on the bike more horizontally than the SCR one (the mounts are different, with the SCR one being slightly more upswept)…..depends how desperate you are, I guess…..

Another alternative would be to get another, less offensive, aftermarket pipe, but again it would need to have the mount, too (unless you do have the original……)

Let us know what you decide.

Ben, thanks a lot for your answer.

I live in central London. I'm relatively new to the city and country ( only 2 years, almost all of them under lockdown). But I love the city and the motorcycle.

I see the yoshi is hanging from the pillion peg. So to build up the original I will have to buildup another mount ?

I guess the alternative of a less offensive one could be the best. Which you recommend for a more “original” look and less noisy? Whchi can be mounted with less building.

Really appreciate the help.

Thanks very much!

To be honest, I think you are going to struggle without the original mount - especially if you want a “less noisy” exhaust. Most aftermarket options I can think of which come with their own mount - I’m thinking DanMoto or Vance and Hines Competition slip-on - are probably no less noisy than your Yoshi. Added to which, neither of these options are available new any more! (I knew DanMoto appeared to have been taken over by another Japanese company, but only saw tonight when checking that V&H no longer made the slip-on). A couple of other chaps on here have other aftermarket exhausts, but I’m afraid I know little about those. @[email protected], for example - what exhaust are you running again, and does it come with its own mount?

As for ‘quieter’, more original looking options, I’m thinking Akrapovic or Arrow Rebel (use the search option for more details), but again, they require the original mount. Is there any scope to either contact the original owner, or ask the garage you bought it off to contact them, and ask if they have the original mount and/or exhaust? If not, you might just have to wait a while until one comes up second hand.

I have the Bassani and I LOVE the look and fit but I HATE
how loud it is! It did come with it's own mount. Good luck! Jevers

Thank for the insightful answers. I will try to contact the former owner.

Any way I’m not in a rush, I can ride with this ”noisy pipe” for some time. and probably in the near future some one reading this and wanting some additional decibels can contact me for a swap.

Thanks very much

I have a stock pipe with the mount / all parts. I'm in Portland, Oregon. Let me know if you want to make me an offer. I already have a slip on so I would only be interested in $$, unless you have a stock SCR seat you'd like to trade me for the stock pipe..
