A quick update from John - he collected the UK demo bike earlier today from Scorpion Racing, complete with the production 2019-specific exhaust (pn. RRP-738), which on the 2019 model actually saves a little more weight than before (as the 2019 OEM silencer is slightly heavier than the 2016-18 version).





The 2019 specific exhaust saves just over 4lbs (1.85Kg) compared to the stock item; and like all Scorpion exhausts benefits from the 50% damage guarantee from Scorpion themselves (if you damage the exhaust they will exchange it for 50% of the cost of a new one, plus shipping at your cost).

Not only does it save a significant amount of weight, but it is also far less bulky and physically large compared to the OEM silencer - offering more heel clearance and making it far more appropriate for off-road use; while the exit itself is angled rearwards to provide plenty of clearance for soft luggage above.

Does this exhaust allow enough clearance to use a basic paddock stand on the swinging arm? The standard ones doesnít allow enough clearance.

Hi Traks - yes it does (I've used a paddock stand on various CBs with this exhaust before) - however, the issue is more that there is not a lot of space between the sprocket and swing-arm and the brake calliper bracket on the other side if you're using a universal style paddock stand with U shaped cup to cradle the swing-arm (rather than a bobbin design with forks). You can do it, but you have to pay attention to where the cups sit under the swing arm.

The exhaust though is not an issue at all.

Hope that clarifies things!
