Scorpion Slip Ons

Anyone have, or heard of, any experiences with the scorpion cans for the 919? Their website has a decent sound file for the 919 and states that no FI re-mapping is necessary for any of their exhaust products.

I've got a Scorpion CF slip-on on my Yamaha FZ1. Here's a video of it:

I think you'll find more people on the nest with those. I like how they will give you a good deal to replace them if you knock over your bike or crash it. They claim it doesn't need a repack either.

Thanks for the info guys. I just found it interesting, then odd, that they are stating that no re-mapping or jetting is necessary for their products, therefore not requiring a PC3. I'm no mechanic nor exhaust expert but would a change in exhaust flow require modifications to fuel mixture?

The 919 with a stock exhaust will benefit from a PCIII, stands to reason your bike with any aftermarket cans will also benefit.

I agree with MrMike. The key word with what Scorpion says is "necessary." As in, it technically isn't necessary to remap in order to use the slip-on. However, if you really want to take advantage of the benefits of a new exhaust, you're going to need a PC3. Slip-ons are mostly a noise and appearance add-on item, the PC3 can improve rideability. Personally, I'd buy the PC3 first, then get cans.

I'll bet the reson Scorpion says what it does is `cuz they don't want you to think you have to shell out $275 for a PowCom in addition to the cost of their cans.

I wouldn't install a set of cans without re-mapping.
