OEM Exhaust query
« on: Jun 20, 2022, 09:42 PM »
Hi,

I have a 2011 650 Versys. Does anyone know if a OEM 2019 Exhaust system would be compatible with a 2011 model?

Thanks in advance.

🙂

Don't think so, 2019 is a one piece and 2011 is two piece as far as I recall from my bikes.

Mk1 and mk2 (2006 to 2014) are all the same....I think

Thanks for the info.

I have a black widow full system fitted (was already on the bike when I purchased)

I am wondering if there's a quieter end can I can get for it, as nice at it sounds, it's too loud in the mornings........Mrs not happy lol.

I am new to biking so am a novice when it comes to all of this? 🙂

You have three options.

1. Own the noise. Rag the living sh#t out of the bike every day and enjoy.
Cheapest option but has potential to end up the most expensive with divorce and moving costs.

2. Get a baffle and stick it in the end can.
Your local bike shop should be able to help getting the right size.
Should be really cheap, no more than 20

3. Get a new end can that will come with baffles installed.
Most expensive, initially, expect 200 upwards.
I usually get my exhausts from BRS Special tuning as they have a great range.

   Haha, we've only been married a couple of weeks so would like it to last a tad longer than previous marriage.
I think I'll just have to own it, as the baffles are already in it lol.

I suppose my main concern is the MOT, and wanting to pass with that level of noise? 🙂

If you you have only been married a few weeks and she is already pissed at you, you might want to step up the game in your evening activities.

It shouldn't be a problem for the MOT.
I have had some shockingly loud bikes pass their MOT with no issues.
