Delkevic Exhaust - Help Me figure this out

For a 2003 919

So I see this:
Honda Stubby Stainless Steel Mufflers | Silencers 14" | Delkevic USA

And I see this:
Honda Stubby Stainless Steel Mufflers | Silencers 14" | Delkevic USA

Which do you think is the right one for 2003 US version? Both on the US page. Any thoughts?

I got the ones without the Y pipe.
The Y pipe looks like it will drop the cat.
They should both work. Call them - really nice people.

Don't know about the one with a new wye, though it looks like it fits on the 919 in the picture. My '06 919 has the slip-ons that use the stock wye, which is the first link.

F- it. Went for it today - with the Y as my stocker is damaged.

Big question, how to go about taking it off?

Bottom shock bolt needs to come off right?

Take some pictures of the install when you get them. I am seriously leaning towards ordering the first set without the Y pipe.

Will try to remember the pics. I spoke with someone there and let her know I really wanted an answer about the two options. When she called back the next day, I found out the inquiries sparked A LOT of debate amongst the company. Designers, RandD guys, management from US and UK.

The two separate pieces, evidently, can lead to certain pipes running too close to the plastic. That is why the pipes available are limited. They then designed their own Y to better fit the bike and all their mufflers. However, they kept the two piece option because so many people still like them and easier to install.

This is of course paraphrased and in no way intended to reflect negatively on the company. In fact, I think it is pretty cool to have an organization where enough people have enough passion to get to the bottom of questions.

Sorry - no didn't mean to imply that. She said they still make both because people like the two piece. None are in limited supply. What she said is that some of their pipes sit too close to the plastic with the two piece - so not all are offered that way.

Looks like the two piece only come in 13" tri and 14" oval. I like the 14" oval and went with those even though getting the Y too. Check it out here:

I just have the slip-on's but if the price is the same go for the stubbies and y pipe.

I took some pics of the install, but honestly, this one may show it best - today on a ride in the beautiful, new Spring weather.



And on the bike it looks just like the pics on the Webpage:


Excuse the mess by the tire hugger --- still haven't cleaned from getting the old pipes off! BTW - these work with the Kappa (Givi) rack. I don't have the top box on in the pic but you can see the rack.

Dave, you are right, the 14" fit without the Y pipe - but since I damaged mine, this was the best way to go.

Another BTW - I had the 13" tri ovals on my Concours. These are the 14" oval. I expected the volume level to be the same, but where the Connie seemed too loud without the baffles, this one seems fine.

So comparing to what the PO had on this bike. Stock Y pipe and D and D open pipes vs Delkevic Y pipe and 14" pipes no baffle in. I went to some familiar twisties near by, we don't have many, that's for sure. It is a sequence of sweepers then something like 8 curves marked 25mph and 30mph, rural, no traffic, smooth road, good sight lines, kinda a great place to really push a bike. Butt dyno says maybe a little more torque because the front wants to come more. Top end rush feels the same. Sorry so long.

Well you're reading my mind. I hope in the next few days to get a moment with my son to get some vids. Maybe up shifting at 5k and another at 7 or 8K. A lot quieter at idle and deeper sounding than the D and D. Certainly bark when on it. Yes, they sound awesome.

Man those look pretty nice... AND they work with the GIVI rack?? I just switched back to stock from yosh's so I could mount my rack and man do I hate the change in sound, bike sounds like a blender, but if these sound as good as they look it looks like I might have a set of them in my future...
