Aliexpress, any dealings?

Has anyone used Aliexpress for buying parts, if so what did you think?

Give me a couple of weeks and I'll let you know. Just for a laugh I ordered some cheap cans. Waiting for them to turn up. They have tracking? To be honest I'm not sure about them. Good luck getting your money back if it goes balls up. Don't buy any thing expensive that would be my advice.

I think it's kind of hit or miss. I have bought some stuff that turned out pretty nice and other stuff that went straight to the trash and soon as I opened it. If the price looks too good to be true, chances are that it may be junk.

Tired of your Delks? What don't you like about them? I got a chance to hear the 14" SS delks on another 919 yesterday- caught him a hardware store, had a good conversation. They were very much quieter than my 9" SS70 series cans. Seemed like once he revved past 4k they didn't get louder, just a mellow tone. I fired mine up and he loved them... I still cant get over the fact I can fit a soda can in each exhaust outlet. LOL

Love my Delks. But I put a OEM windscreen on the other day now I can't here my pipes. The ride with the windscreen is more comfortable but it's put a lot more wind onto my helmet. These 450mm Delks aren't all that loud. The outlet is about 50mm. Compare that to your whopping 70mm! Also I think your pipes are only around 300mm long. I just can't here my bike sing anymore.
I mostly got these chinese pipes for shits and giggles. They look like they'll be loud. I'll just use the Delkevic link pipes and clamp em on. Also looking at an English brand, pipewerx, at some slash end pipes.
Here is a pic of my AliExpress pipes. $150 au dollars delivered.

I just clamp some playing cards to the swing arm and they make noise when they hit the spokes.

Let me know how those turn out!
I can still hear my SS70 cans at any speed. I have a puig windscreen that put the wind at my shoulders when doing 80 mph, and I can still hear my pipes- even with ear plugs. Its a real mean raspy tone. Here is a pic for reference on the windscreen height and cans...

Cans turned up yesterday. Tracking all the way. No problems. Fitted them this morning. Supposed to be working but got a kid home with the flu, so.......
Fitted well. Used Delkevic link pipes and clamp. Also used the Delkevic bracket rubber. The supplied bracket was a little loose and the Delkevic rubber was wider and I used it under the supplied rubber. Packet out the bracket well.
Friggin noisy. Which is what I wanted. Haven't been on a good ride yet just up and down driveway. All good so far.

Another pic showing hanger bracket. I used the wider delkevic rubber underneath supplied bracket and rubber cause bracket wouldn't pull up tight. This fixed it good. I've seen these cheap ass chinese brackets before and they are advertised to fit 110mm cans. These cans are 102mm. All tight and looks ok too.

Now we're talking! Those look good! Gonna sound awesome when you get them hot and open that throttle up too. Im betting if you wanted to, you could even cut them down to 9" and have them tuck tightly under tail still. When you get a good ride in let me know of you felt a power loss/gain.

Nice work!

Actually this type of pipe comes in a shorter 9" inch version. I will mention that I contacted Delkevic and they said they can sell all their exhaust components separate. So you can buy the link pipes, about $100, clamps, rubber strap etc. All up, including delkevic bits, I think it'll cost about $250 aud.
I'll give an update on exhaust after a good hard ride this weekend. Will attempt to blow them off!

Went for a half hour ride today. The sound these pipes make in a word is Obnoxious. Thank God I have no neighbors and I live on an island. My delks weren't anywhere as loud but had a real sweet note at full noise. These are just fucking LOUD. Was almost embarrassed to ride through town. Also afraid I may give someone a heart attack if I pass them. The fueling feels a little off as well. Idle isn't as smooth. Throttle a little more snatchy. Little bit more of a gurgle/pop on decal. Seem to have lost a little midrange power?
So I switched out maps for an early Sato one. Figured it was a big bore exhaust too. Anyway it's very windy over here for a few days, so it'll be a bit. But I will play around and see if the bike and pipes can be tuned?

Those new pipes may be the "Lifesaver" model at that obnoxious db level.

I think they sound great. Window shakers.
Having a bit of trouble loading up a sound clip.

Got the bike running good with these pipes and a map from the Dropbox. Pvester 919 erion map. The sato map didn't feel right. Low throttle was off, felt something missing mid throttle and lean popping on deceleration. Looking at all the maps I noticed Pvester 919 erion map had some interesting fueling. Using this map low throttle was smooth. Mid throttle came back. Also the lean popping on deceleration was gone. Looking at the map I see fuel added at high and mid revs, zero throttle. I'm assuming this is the deceleration part. After a couple of hour long rides I pulled the plugs. All normal. Bike running temp in traffic hasn't changed either.
I think these pipes just leaned out the fueling a little. The internal bore diameter is 75mm! Using the power commander map compare feature the Pvester 919 map looked rich in all the right places. Now bike runs like a demon with these pipes and sounds like one too. Deep throaty gurgle at idle. I take it easy round town and when overtaking someone cause at full noise they are something else.
Pipes so far are fine. No sign of coming apart. No colour change. No leaks. All good as far as workmanship. I'll give em a good run over summer and will post an update in a month or two. Sooner if they explode off the back of my bike.
