Been searching around a lot for an exhaust and the Scorpion has gotten my attention. Main think I like is it uses the stock exhaust mount, not a bracket to the rear set like others. Went to one of the local dealers that I remembered had one on a bike on display. The Ti seems to be calling my name, both about the same price too. Best so far I've seen was $390 from http://starcycle.com/ ...anyone ever deal with them?

Found a clip on youtube:

If those 2 are your only choices, I would get the Scorpion...

Not a big fan of how the Micron comes up and uses the passenger peg mount...I personally like the lower outlet exhausts...but a lot of the use a bracket to the rear set which I don't like either.

I like the Ti better, too! I'm thinking about a slip-on for mine, and that one is also on my short list. Have other things I want to do first, though. :)

Ti might have a slightly different sound than the CF, that CF sounds great in the clip.

Hell, its a TiForce, and for the price I can live with the mount to the passenger peg mount.

Nope, all that is one piece and comes off.

I just don't like that bracket they use for the Triforce. I would have stuck with the scorpion.

Not to crazy about the way they have it mounted either, but for the price I'll deal with it. There no comparison when it comes to TiForce craftsmanship :drool:

Look at the welds on a TiForce system.

Cakes, I have a full tiforce system on my bike. After a while the expansion and contraction of the header pipes loosened up the slip joints. Now when I start my bike the header joints rattle. I goes away in less then a minute once the pipes heat up and expand but it's very annoying. Sounds like my motor has blown up.

Also, This isnt an isolated problem. I've met two other people at the track with the same problem.

A slipon probably wont have the same issue.
