Might be worth going into a 'Cop Shop' and talking it over or even perhaps when you get happen to get stopped doing 130Mph  :121:

I'll have you know I was NEVER stopped for doing 130 mph!  On the Black '09 I had before the White '07 I am currently riding, I DID - however - lose track after coming off of the highway with a 100 kph limit, to a connector road with a 80 kph limit, and then crossed over into a 50 kph zone... just momentarily forgot where I was, found myself surrounded by a bunch of cars travelling too close to each other, decided to blow around them on a right hand bend... only to see a police officer holding a radar gun aimed directly at me.  114 kph in a 50 kph zone = $368 fine, loss of the bike for a week, bill for immediate towing AND storage at a private impound lot (at least they let me go in and put my raincover on the bike)... a little under $800 all in.

 The cops were riders themselves, and I was instantly on my best behavior so they - in turn - were uber-civil, and did what they could to minimize my financial pain. 

Now I HAVE had the White 1050 up to 195 kph... and I felt that there WAS capacity to spare, so I am pretty sure I COULD reach 208 kph = 130 mph on my machine... but maybe I will just go out to Mission, BC and see what it will do on a Race Day at the track out there when it is open to anyone who wants to go really fast instead.  Live and learn, eh?

But the basic idea of asking (about inspections) at a Police Station is sound too.  Thanks, YD

Timely thread, thinking about a Scorpion Red Power Series for my 2011.  A site on line has one listed for 2007-09, AFAIK, won't this fit my 2011?

And, I've seen talk about the Scorpion Serkut, but not the Red Power unit, anyone have experience with this pipe?  I had an Arrow on this bike previously and wasn't that impressed, it pulled well over about 5-6k, but lost some of the low end grunt despite trying several maps, so in the end sold it.

Hmmm, Ive got the Serket on my Tiger Sport, dont think they do a Serket for the earlier model. Works well on my Sport  without any noticeable mid-range drop, but maybe the Ride by Wire system helps with that

As Timbox says the Scorpion Serket isnt compatible with the pre-sport Tigers, i looked at it myself in January when i had to replace the Arrow on my 2010 SE  :151:
I would recommend the SC project, has a lovely sound, gives a bit more horses & looks nice too IMHO  :123:
And IIRC cheaper than the equivalent Scorpion & Remus.

Sorry, I was probably not clear in my wording.  I was not thinking about fitting a Serket, but rather the Red Series.  A vendor in the US has one for a 2007-09 at a decent price and I think it will fit my 2011, but not sure?  I will also look and see what an SC Project goes for.

Edit: An SC Project goes here in the US for $546 vs $400 for the Scorpion, any significant difference with the SC to be worth $150 more?

Looks like they are a similar price here, scorpion red power high mount carbon or titanium can is 359
https://www.scorpion-exhausts.com/triumph-tiger-1050-2007-2012-factory-oval-slip-on-factory-oval-carbon-fibre
SC Project. High mount carbon can is 380 euros (340 current exchange rate)

 I see the scorpion with stainless can is only 279 so 80 quid cheaper  :084:

^^ Thanks for the feedback.  From what I've tried to find on previous threads, the SC Project and Scorpion both got favorable feedback so for $150 less, unless someone has something negative to say about the Scorpion, that's what I'll go with if I pull the trigger on this project.

Well people... I take you back to the very beginning of this thread... I took my 07 Tiger 1050 in to the dealer and found out that my exhaust system is in fact OEM / stock.  Jon said that over time the packing had probably settled which helped give the bike a better sound, but that nevertheless I had the original can on the machine.  I am choosing to beleivre that the guy who sold the bike to me really believed it was an upgraded system.

SO.... All he discussion about Remus and Micron, Scorpions and and SC Project will be useful for me in deciding how to proceed.  Many thanks to all who chimed in.

BTW - Yellow Dog:  That speeding ticket I got has turned out to be the proverbial gift that keeps on giving... I got a notice from the province owned (mandatory basic coverage) insurance company the other day that I owed an extra $384 for what they called a Driver's Risk Premium as a result of my little  indiscretion, AND would be getting a similar bill just before my birthday for two more years!  We are approaching two grand all in for this one ticket!  ROTTEN LUCK indeed!
