SilMoto exhaust

Anyone running SliMoto's on thier bike? I'm thinking about buying one (full system) for my Hyper, but would like some feed back since you really don't see many of them? Also, a picture of it on the bike (Hyper) if you have it? Thanks guys!

I've had a Sil Moto full system on my Monster since 1996. It has been very durable and makes good power.


They are a little slow on delivery as they make them to order, but have otherwise been fairly reliable since the new ownership change.

I've been looking for the link on line and can't find anything....I saw the picture of the exhaust in a Lockhart Phillips catalog of all places! A good friend of mine owns a bike shop and ordered it today for me. The Full exhaust with a carbon can for $1000.00 out the door! They retail for $1450.00. Not bad! I'll post some pic's once I put it on!

Just for shits and giggles,

the Sil Motor exhaust I had here (54mm full titanium) was nice. But - it was large, even larger than the Termi I had on my SPS 2007. So you had some clearance issues with the rear wheel if you weren´t running the wheel eccentric far back.

When I went to my dealer to enquire for an exhaust system he told me to stay away from the really big Sil Motor system, because they had race systems there that were of horrible quality.

But then, I have seen newer Termignoni systems that just suck. Not well built and seemingly just randomly welded together.
If you want quality and money is not your main concern, go buy Akrapovic.

It appears to me that no matter which model of bike you own. You can always buy the matching Akrapovic system and you will have build quality and power. Has been like that with my 2000 R6, my buddy´s SC59 Fireblade, the 1098s (just look at the headers of that thing!) and my other friends 2008 ZX6R.

Good point, Ben. Akra is getting better by the minute. They used to be so-so but now they are really excellent. Then again, if you really don't care about the price tag and you want something even nicer than Akra you should look into Motocorse exhaust systems. They don't get much better than that...

I've got the same 50-mm system as woodmanr on my 748/800. Raced it that way for several years, then moved the exhaust along with the engine and tuned chip into my street bike - no burned-out sleeves or other problems in the 6-7 years I've had them, but the stickers started peeling off so I eventually completely removed them. Much better record than the Arrows I have on my 996, which blew out after a couple years of use - I replaced the sleeves with Ti.

But in general I'd stay away from CF sleeves, it's the wrong material for exhaust systems and you're just asking to eventually blow a big hole in one of the cans.

Ti may be a better material, but CF just looks so much better

On the 999, the walls appear to be too thin. The headers keep cracking. They look really nice, but under normal use, they don´t seem to hold up. My mate´s 999 system had to be welded 5 times. He races it and it just keeps cracking. But then I have spoken to another guy racing Sound of Thunder who has a Leo Vinci ti race system on his 999R and he says the same. Light and smooth, good looking but not very durable.

It´s all in the vibrations you´d think

For whatever it's worth, the Sli I got was junk! Nothing fit, the packaging was a joke, the bung holes were to small, no instructions, was never told or was it indicated that you needed a new ECU with the exhaust (no O2 port).....I ended up returning it and getting a LeoVince. I was really disappointed! Looked like a cool exhaust!
