^ Wow, rotten luck indeed! :012:

Just ordered the Scorpion, hope it works a little better than the Arrow I tried 2 years ago.  It's only money, right.  :015:

And money is only as good as what it will get you.

I was looking at the Scorpion too, but it looks as if it is not compatible with the OEM luggage / rack(s)... at least that specific disclaimer was on the advert I looked at.  While I do not use them often, I do use panniers from time to time and do not think I would want to remove them so...

Can anyone tell me which brands of performance enhancing exhausts ARE compatible with the Triumph pannier set up?  I am not really inclined to go the "home made / custom" route as it would mean 'flying without a net' guarantee -wise.  I had an Arrow on the '09 which DID work with the luggage on, but the only one I have found is pretty expensive relative to other brands.

What are my choices, fellow '07 to '12 Tiger (non Sport model) 1050 riders?

Thanks in advance!

^ I saw that disclaimer too, but also noticed the file photo shows the bike with luggage racks mounted to it obviously clears those.  I will let you know in about a week.   :034:

There is nothing on the official Scorpion website about that Exhaust (ETR63xxx) being incompatible with luggage??

For some reason the vendor's site states it's not compatible, we'll see I guess.  These days I use the T1200 for overnight or longer trips, so the 1050 is my Sunday fun bike, if the bags won't go on it won't be a deal breaker.

pcarnut - I only have the one bike (wish I could afford a second!), so it WOULD be a deal breaker for me.  I will really appreciate hearing from you how you make out with it.  Many thanks.

I have never read of someone having issues with a high mount slip on and the OEM or aftermarket hardbags. Some of the low mount ones could have clearance issues but even that was a bit sketchy. I had a Remus Powercone low mount slip on that came with a disclaimer label stating it was not suitable for use with the hardbags and centerstand. It worked fine with the bags and even came with a bracket on the link pipe for the centerstand bung so no problems there either. The choices for the Mk1 '07-'12 Tigers is shrinking though now that it has been out of production for close to 7 years. Currently have a Leo Vince SBK slip on that works fine with the OEM bags and the Givi E41's I,m using now. Although the Leo and Powercone are no longer available.
Larger than life and twice as ugly!

While I am still waiting for the inside scoop on the Scorpion, I have also come across the GPR Furore Slip on Black Muffler at around US$370 and coming  from Italy. 

It is on eBay, comes with a basic picture and description, so I am not sure if it is high or low mount (It would have to be high for me), AND it would obviously have to be compatible with OEM luggage racks etc., etc.  Then there is the whole question of  quality, performance gain, and sound.

Anyone out there in Tiger world have experience with this brand / model?

Thanks as always

Scorpion pipe arrived today and is now fitted.   :001:

Absolutely no issue with clearing the factory bags.  There's so much room I think a standard bag might even fit there now.  Overall fit is good, however the clamp that goes around the can itself mounted too close to the body work and rubbed.  I've trimmed it a little and it just clears now.  The supplied frame bracket that the clamp mounts to needs to be about 10mm longer to allow the can to set a smidgeon lower.

Did the adaption cycle and then took it for a short run.  The sounds is excellent, a nice rasp, and better than the Arrow I had tried.  Power and response seem slightly smoother, didn't feel soft on the bottom like the Arrow, but time will tell after the ECU settles in.  Next step is to probably de-cat it.  Thus far though extremely pleased with it.   :046:
