**WITHDRAWN**Feeler want to trade CF Sato slip ons

Seeing what else is out there. I have a set of recently repacked Carbon Fiber Satos. I love them but I would rather have something louder. I prefer carbon fiber pipes. Looking to trade for Gpr or possibly Yoshi or ? Cash also talks but these are expensive and no longer made as you know

I have some Delkevic CFs....

On a more serious note, what kind of tire hugger is that and where'd you get it?

It is called the FSD Honda Hornet 919 rear hugger from 2wheeljunkie.com part number HP-H919. But I don't think the website is around anymore

O well, too rich for my blood. I can get the Mivvs or Scorpions I've been looking at brand new for not much more than that. GLWS, or trade.

You could, but you can't get a set of Satos anywhere... And these ones have been repacked so they're basically brand new. Don't let the price stop you, Sato's are some of the best sounding exhaust for the 919.

No doubt they are awesome exhaust, I just can't help but wonder if they are THE best then why don't they make them anymore. Also, since they've stopped making them the other manufacturers could have been continuing to improve theirs, to the point of being as good if not better. Not to mention manufacturers like Scorpion offer lifetime warranties with their exhaust. Just my thoughts.

And valid ones at that, which I'll try to answer a few.

Perhaps the absolute best would likely be morrowaki, but they're not made anymore either and they're near damn impossible to find. The main reason why exhausts such as Satos and Morrowaki ceased production for the 919 is because the 919 ceased to be produced as well. Just the nature of the beast. Most exhaust that are still available for the 919 are either produced at very low quality/costs or are overstock that have not been sold just yet. Its possible that a few exhausts systems are still in production such as GSP but it's hard to say at this point.

For exhaust, there is not much performance gain so the main factor to the exhaust is individual preference. These preferences relate to looks, sound, location, and outlet sizes/tips.

Some current brands actually show no to negative gains with their system. There's an article that LDH did with regards to exhausts and another article that reviewed Morrowaki/satos to give you some ideas.

In my opinion the Satos have the best sound . As to quality Yoshis are probably the best made along with Sato's, Leo's, Akro's and Mori's. You can still get Akro's for the 919 in Europe. If you think 500 for used Satos is high the Akros shipped have to be close to 1000 to 1200. I think all of the 919 exhaust are stainless so it is just a matter of how thick the stainless is and how will built they are. If you are looking for HP get another bike. Exhaust is a bling item on a 919 and there is nothing wrong with that. The large round cans have the best deep sound usually. Most of the time you get what you pay for. The exception is Yoshi's they are reasonable and of the best quality and sound and parts are just a phone call away.
I have had both the Sato's and Yosh'is on the 919.

Both the Mivv and Scorpion website indicate that the cans listed are specifically designed for the 919, and currently still in production. From what I can tell both of these are good quality brands. As you guys said the Satos are no longer being produced so that causes some concern regarding parts and what not. I know for sure the Scorpions come with a lifetime warranty, and I believe the Mivvs do as well, which adds a great deal of peace of mind. That said I do like the looks of the Sato's, from the pics here they look really similar to the Scorpions I'm looking at, but given the fact that I've never heard Mivv, Scorpion, or Sato cans in person it's hard to determine which will give the 9er the sound Iím looking for. If there was a little larger price difference between these used Satos and the new Mivvs or Scorpions I'm looking at, I would be much more interested. This is my conundrum, how to buy something that I've never seen or heard in person, and know that I wonít be disappointed. $5-600 is a lot with a wife and two kids.

It seems the majority would agree you couldn't go wrong with any of those brands. The only Scorpion I've seen on a 919 however are the shorty cans with a 900rr header.

Good luck with your choice!

ok. when I called pvster "genious", I was sarcastic. You've been on this forum since Sept. (long enough) so you should know better by now that he is veeeeery far from one
Obviously price is a main factor which will stop average person from purchasing

They are in great shape. A few light scratches on the bottoms not seen when mounted from road debris. They had the stainless cores so repacking was pretty easy with the Moose repacking kits. They were super loud before and not in a good way. Now they sound awesome but I like my exhaust to be louder but sound good of course.

Yup no one wants the best anymore. I'm kinda relieved I get to keep them. I would definitely miss the sound when you roll on throttle while in motion. O well I guess close the thread please since there is no interest.
