I am looking at purchasing a full system. After seeing the images on some vendor sites, I am concerned with fitment on the GT+
I contacted [email protected] as they have full systems listed for the GT. They said that they have not tested with the panniers installed and cannot say that their exhausts will fit. They have a few that look like they would work. I may go with the header and mid pipe, keeping the stock muffler. This may be too loud for me though.
Wish the testing would have been done with the panniers or if the vendors would use the stock location of the muffler. I do not have my bags from Suzuki yet...

Anyone have any pictures of their GT with aftermarket exhaust/panniers? I have seen the Moore Mafia video with the Brock's exhaust. Way out of my price range.

Thanks in advance.

That my LeoVince fitted with panniers absolutely fine, other pictures and videos in my thread.

I have a Black Widow exhaust on the SV its very loud even with the baffle in.

Thank you for the pictures and response. I would be a little worried about the exhaust pointing at the pannier over time. I think a muffler with a turn down tip may help with that.

It would appear that the two exhausts in the first post would not fit with the panniers installed. Looking at your picture with the bags installed vs the pics above. It looks like the stock location or shorter will be the only way to go. Thoughts?

I never use the panniers but I got a good deal to have them included. I’ve done a couple of long journeys with them and no trouble at all there’s plenty of space between the exhaust and pannier. I got the bike to blast around on and be comfy more than a tourer so it sounds a bit better and looks better I think.

Paul Hutchings with Lextek is soon to release a complete system. He has been riding around with it on his bike with the bags. Their system will have a resonator with several slip ons to choose from. He's a major contributor on the Facebook page. This is his bike

This is great news. Thanks for sharing. I need to find this Facebook page. What is the group name?

Lextek has quite a few. I’m waiting for the system. I wish someone else had a similar set up to compare. Brock’s is just stupid money.

You are right, I believe you have to use their link pipe. On the GT, a slip on does no good. The cat does so much of the muffling, a slip on is a waste of money.

you are right but / and on my previous GSXS I went too far. She sounded amazing and loads of power but it got moved too far in the rev range and I ended up not enjoying the bike on day to day rides. I sold her and basically started over while hoping to have learned a bit of something.
Again you are not completely wrong 👍

I've done the same thing with cars. You put the wrong cam in and it becomes nothing but a drag race car that's only good in the upper rev range. Too many of us fall prey to thinking replacing everything will make it better. Picking up the midrange without losing top end is the thing to have on the street. The aftermarket thrives on guys thinking they have what they need often to find it ruins what was enjoyable.

Dang, so childish like car forums of the past. Social media and the internet make keyboard rambos out of so many spineless humans.
