Aftermarket Exhausts

So are Sato's the only way to go? Or are there other decent aftermark pipes for the 919?

Sato's are what you want. I installed a set of Ti slip ons and had to do no adjustments....nice and clean running. Easy install, killer craftmanship.

I have Satos & have only one complaint: the Sato badges dont line up from left to right can. Only noticable when looking from overhead.

I would not hesitate to say I would be happy with Yoshimura or Moriwaki too.

abadley,
I had a set of Arrow titaniums and wasn't too happy with the look (once installed) and the noise. Quality was top tho.
I switched to Satos few months ago.
Everyone on this forum running Satos will tell you that they are a great product.
I do not have a PC on my bike.

From what I've read here and elsewhere, Satos and Staintunes are the most popular choice for great sound, performance and quality. There are others out there though. If you have the ability, visit other riders in your area with different pipes to see/hear the differences.

Here's mine w/ Yoshi's after the fender mod... I think they look good, especially the tri-oval shape from the back, a little smaller than the big round Sato's, and they sound great to me! No PCIII - Yet!

I've ordered Staintunes not long ago. I just called them today and they said it will be another 4 days. I'll have pictures and video up shortly to help others with their decision.

Which pipes use the tapered heat shield from the OEM pipes....... I like that look and dont want to give it up. I see the Yoshi's in the pic above are using them, and they look great...... can you easily use them on the Sato's or Staintunes?

Back in the dark ages I was skeptical when Sato products were mentioned. At the time I was a Akrapovic advocate. After seeing a set of Satos on a RC-51 it changed my thinking forever. These cans along with Mori's. are the highest quality products money can by. Interesting that both brands are made in Japan. IMO no other exhaust will match their quality or performance.

I've had some popping on decel with the Satos installed that wasn't there before. From what I've read, the problem is with the PAIR system, not the lack of a PCIII. My season here is almost over for the Winter and I'm planning to remove/cover the PAIRs and add a PCIII. Can't wait for Spring!!!

What are you talking about with the "Pair System" Are you talking about two mufflers? I guess I'm missing something.

The PAIR system injects fresh air into the exhaust pipe on decel causing any unburnt fuel to ignite.

The Yosh use them as do Erion. You cant on the Satos but they come with there own Ti ones. I do think Mori's look better except they are too long. I love the Ti pipes & carbon shields--on Sato you have to choose But the Satos are far easier to get & according to LDH, work better.

Buy Satos and thats it. No Power Commander needed..the 919s run rich stock, especially in ca.

Anything else would be "less than ideal". Sato's are the poop.

I'll probably get flamed for this but I have the Two Bros. Single Can Exhaust and am extremly happy with it. The Two Bros. sounds great, I love the single can look and haven't had any problems with it.

I noticed more exhaust smell after installing the Satos, but I think I'm the only one. The bike runs rich right out of the box, but a PCIII and Kyle's map (or a trip to the Dyno shop) will cure this.

the moris ARE longer BUT, leave us to discuss exhaust smell lol
satos are tucked up under the tail but are pretty short, especially the Gen 1's, the Gen 2's are a bit better w/ the extended outlet that's a wee bit angled....whereas the Mori's are indeed longer, split out from the tail a bit (you can adjust how much) and they have the extended, downturned outlets which does make a difference

Big Valley Honda can get you all the Moriwaki stuff you need and the CF heat shields are dead sexy...

sound wise, the satos sound more raw, raspy at idle and just evil at WOT.
the mori's are a bit more reserved at idle letting out a low rumble but on the gas they begin to sing and the note evolves into this wail that is all it's own and all business

should you happen to mate the Mori's to a Fat Y and you'll hear your 919 breathe like never before and the front end won't stay down in 2nd gear

i did at one time, contemplate cuttin down the Mori's by an inch or two...no more. i've got it setup just how i like it

I'm not feelin any Erion love?!

They rock! Fantastic sound! Great performance out of the box. I added the PC3 with the Erion map and my bike runs a very linear power band.
They use the stock heat sheilds which is a plus.
Eliminated the exhaust stink too.

If I had a black bike I'd get those Erions for sure. Since I got the red I had to go with the super shiney and clean Staintunes.

I think the Carbons look nice on a red bike add some black Pazzo levers and a black bug screen.
I'm part way there.

I got them, and I'm pretty happy with them too. I'm happy with the look, the sound, and the performance for my needs. I noticed a big difference in the bike's performance and throttle response. I'm no hardcore rider, but I've been riding long enough (over 22 years) to have a good feel for bikes. I did just have a problem with the pipe touching the rear brake line, but upon further inspection, I noticed the bracket bolt had vibrated loose, which caused the pipe to drop just enough to touch the brake line on compression. I dabbed some blue threadlock on the bolt, so hopefully this won't happen again. I do plan on some Satos next, but these do great for now.

Call me picky but the stock heat shields with the Yoshi pipes look like poop. They just don't line up very well to a triangular shaped pipe. If they made a heat shield that matched, it would look a million times better. The Mori's just don't look right to me. Sato's are very nice and also fairly expensive (you get what you pay for though, right?). I've been throwing around the idea of getting the Erion cans (right now just running the baffelectomized cans). Mudarra, did the Erions do anything for you with respect to exhaust stink?

I'm seriously leaning toward Akrapovic, if only for the look. They seem solid to me and I like the heat shield much better. Has anyone had a negative experience w/them? I guess I'm also asking to be enlightened, what makes Sato so much better? (Besides the fact that they are what you run...you know.)
