I have two Delkevics of different lengths for my VFR. The 9inch carbon fiber one which sounds absolutely lovely....but lovely like a racecar, not a street car. And the 18inch oval which resides on there now. The full stainless headers with an 18inch can is just about perfect for me. But thats a v4, so the tones are quite different. If you want to be on the SAFE side...always go for the 18inch IMO.

If so - what is that duration.?
Besides the FJR I have two Moto Guzzi's, both with the same 1200 8V motor. I have a 13 with 47k miles and its had a Delkevic 18"CF exhaust since I first bought the bike new back in 2013. My other bike is a 17 with 5k miles and the exact same Delkevic muffler and it sounds exactly the same as the one with 47k. So the jest of this long story is you really never need to repack them. Both have had the DB killers in the whole time.

How do these compare to the Two Brothers pipes?

When I was a track-a-holic on my R1 & R6, I used to think that the FJR was an old man's bike. Then I got one and absolutely love it. Hey...wait a minute!

No packing was included with the system I bought. I am not aware if other D-systems supply packing or the duration / longevity of the packing.

well that is good news.


I have always been a Staintune guy, but the pipes are $1500.


So the Delkevic was an option - didn't know if they used fiber glass like 2 Bros
or if it was spun stainless steel like the Staintune's & Remus.


Thanks for the insight lads....

Just my opinion, Two Brothers are the loudest and more obnoxious, better with the db killers in. Delkevic (the longer ones) are good, the Yammy Yoshimuras nicer. Delks with the baffles in I think might be good and a decent price.

This might not be popular here, but I love my Two Brothers pipes. Iíve had them on previous bikes and loved them too.

I have the 18” carbon fiber Delkevics with no complaints, you can hear them at idle and lower speeds, no to loud, and above 45mph or so you really can’t hear them, very happy with them.

Mad, if you like your two brothers pipes good for you, hopefully they’re not straight-pipe Harley loud, but if you like them enjoy!

I have the Delkevic DL10 Stubby 14" Carbon slipons and quite enjoy them .

They give some bark to an otherwise pretty boring ride ( and yes , boring is good also ) .

I had them on for about a year with baffles out . When I put the baffles in imagine my
surprise when the sound difference was negligble ( as measured by my db tool ) .
AND it had an irritating very slight miss off throttle with the baffles in .

Out they came .
