Tracer GT Scorpion Serket Taper on Niken GT?

Recommended Posts

I ordered one for a tracer GT, and will report back on whether it fits. The modified stock pipe is just too quiet for the texting and driving generation...….

Do you have a modified stock pipe that you are no longer using?

Yes, but I have a Niken, so I’m not certain it will fit another bike, and my intention is to cut the canister off and clamp on the scorpion slip-on.

Well, it "fits". If you try to do this and don't end up happy.....don't blame me.

It sounds great, too quiet with the silencer insert, a tad loud without. Leaving it out as the tone is great, and the volume should wake the texting drivers.

It requires many attempts to get the rotation of the offset pipe correct, and had to heavily bend the mounting bracket that came with the pipe. I also slightly bend the centre stand stop, and dimpled in a spot on the pipe. None of those changes bother me, but some extra OCD folks may not like it.

To install:

  • Remove exhaust system, no need to remove centre stand.
  • cut pipe 
  • re-install headers and collector
  • Muck around for an hour to get the fit, rotation, and alignment correct, in the process, gently bend the lower centre stand mount, and add a dimple to the pipe to clear.

Great mod, and I'm happy with the result!

Nothing wrong with dimples in smiles or on exhaust pipes; they're totally complimentary in both cases!
