New Exhaust

I'm wanting to fit an aftermarket set of slip-on exhaust cans to my 06 Honda 900 hornet (919). I've been looking at all the usual suspects, Yoshimura, Sato etc & I've also heard some good reports about Delkevic. Any suggestions leading from your experiences would be very much appreciated.

Delkeviks are great and are priced great.

Never heard the Dlekevics but they get great reviews. I have heard Sato's and Yoshi's, they both sound great.

Had Sato's and loved them. They are loud but sound good. Running Leo Vince cans now. Love them too. Good sound and more mellow than the Sato's.

I know g00gleit has a nice 900rr setup for the 919 for sale. He is selling it for cheap and I LOVE the 900rr look. Might be something to consider!

Wow....I'm blown away by just how many of you have come to my help & just how fast your responses have come in. I want to thank you all.
I have read lots of reviews about Delkevics & the price is certainly a lot cheaper than the well known manufacturers. Even though Delkevics has an office here in Oz I can get the identicle system from England delivered for $160.00 cheaper than buying direct from Delkevics Australia (go figure). Any how, at the moment I'm leaning towards the Delks, they look good & sound good, & judging by your comments, most of you seem to think the same way. What ever my final choice is I'll post pics of the bike after I install them.
Thanks heaps, Stay upright.
Gary

They've got the triangle Delkevics out now too and last I check they were selling them the same price as the ovals.

Delkevics

As promised, here are some pics of my bike with the Delks fitted.
Impressions so far: Good build quality, easy install (just had to make up a spacer for the clamp bolt), & great sound.

Those look like they belong on the bike. Very nice.

Youre bike is very good looking! Very clean. Although i think the triangles would add a little something to the visual quality.

Ive been curious if anyone has on their bikes or knows of any exhaust setups that look similar to this one here, but arent defeaningly load?

minus the carbon fiber looking cap the Two Brothers M5 can is very similar. I'm actually trying to figure out if I can manage to make them work on my 919. They are high on my list of sweet looking cans.

Is it this one from their site?

Why should it be difficult to fit the can to a 919?

the flange is special. I haven't spent the time trying to figure adapting yet.

after looking at some more pics it looks like it's just a collar on the mid pipe. should be no big deal (for me) to whip a couple out on the lathe and weld them on the (as of yet unprocured) mid pipes.

Methinks maybe on aforementioned lathe you might whip out one extra! If you were so inclined...

gladly. you will probably end up with these before me since I'm in serious save mode, but I would happily make a couple for you. When/if you get them, let me know some dimensions (we can figure them out when the time comes) and I will make them.
