Dan Moto MK2's

Below is my email to Dan Moto. they won't respond because I'm not so sure they are where they say they are. First off, they only sent me (1) muffler that took (9) days to get too me. So, I had to wait another (9) days for the other one. And then i had to make several modifications to install it on my 2007 Hornet (919). Just a buyer beware.

After installing your exhausts I thought it was important that I send you
the modifications that was needed to make the piece of crap work. You didn't
include a spacer (stock muffler spacer pic) that is necessary to fit the
stock mounting hole. Your dog bone is too long and had to be altered (pic)
to work. Your holes for the baffles are off center (pic) so the head of the
hex bolt won't get by the outside of the muffler. I realize you won't answer
or compensate me, I'm sending you this so you make adjustments and don't
piss another American off. I will also be sending this to the many forums
that I belong too so other riders know the deal .. As previous stated, been
riding and working on bikes for over 40 years, hard to say I don't know WTF
Iím talking about...Look at the pics...

Did you try to run dog bone hanger in the other direction? Towards the rear of the bike. It would be better to have the exhaust hanger bracket more central on the can so there was less overhang of pipe. Less weight to cantilever.

Prefer it dead center. Vibration will work it's way loose on a angle. Moto said the same thing along with using the stock spacers. The ones on my 07 are welded.Maybe different on other years. Holes off center for the baffles. Enough with the disappointment. Truism, you get what you pay for....

Used like 4 nuts and 4 washers on each side

Hmmm, I'll take the fit, finish and function of my Yoshi's every time over this kind of thing.

I've been running angled bracket hangers for a year. Never moved once.
I am using a different Y link pipe. One single solid unit, Delkevik. I also packed out my hanger bracket with an extra rubber to get it super snug.

I do admit I went for the dan moto cause they were 450 vs 900 for CF yoshi...


I would like to get some Yoshi's though, maybe next year or during the winter. (keep me posted if you see any for sale on the cheap)


I'm thinking of updating to more quality slip ons AND getting the headers and y-pipe refurbished and ceramic coated to help with the heat transfer :-)

It's worse than danmoto. The cheap arse chinese cans I run don't even have a manufacturer brand. I think I paided around $150aud for the pair. Loud...

It's a Wijalis seat cover. You have to remove your old cover and staple new cover on.
I work for them too... LOL!

You mean less heat transfer, right?

Ahh yes... Outrageous is a word you could use. Ridiculous, earsplitting, annoying, illegal, wrong are some others.
I just love loud bikes and I do like cagers to hear me coming and going.
I have been looking at these for a while. Hope they are loud too!
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132091283028

Perfect!

I bought some Mivv X cones, made in Italy

Fitted absolutely perfect, all spacers etc. included, 4 bolts and it's done.
They look well made, sound good, and have a removable decibel killer.
I really wanted the Yoshies, but they were nearly twice the price, or triple the price for the carbon ones.
I bought the powercommander with the money I saved.
I wonder how many cheap Chinese knock offs are floating around, those guys are everywhere, and don't care about patents.

What no test without the db killer? 😞

You have to drill out the rivet, and then replace it.
After 100klm\s it's noticeably louder than at first install.
Maybe the packing settles in a bit, but it's plenty loud enough for me.
I use earplugs as the wind noise in my well ventilated helmet is like being in a wind tunnel,
but it still sounds good with the plugs in.

I bought a set of Dan Motos several months back and had the same experience, you kinda gotta mess around a little bit to get 'em right. I was willing to work a bit to save >50% vs others, and they do sound awesome - especially after they bake in for a little while. I can't go back to stock now.

Just looking at the Dan moto page. Wow they are cheap. It's making me rethink my idea of building my own side exit system 😉

Get yourself a Delkevik one piece Y link pipe, for the 919. Delkevik will sell their exhaust components separately. Their single stainless Y link pipe has two 50mm outlets. You can then find yourself any pair of end cans you like, price, looks etc. As long as they are 51mm. A set of clamps and hanger brackets and away you go. Being one piece the Y link pipe makes the rear exhaust feel very solid.

Thanks for the tip. I am still leaning towards doing the custom side exhaust. Partly because of cost and partly because I think it might be cool and different.
