Looks really sharp. Changes the look of the bike substantially, without sacrificing the off roadability. Should be a little cooler on the right thigh as well, I would think.

It certainly moves heat away from the thigh as well as doing away with the cat. which with the overall look were my considerations.

Quote from Zard.

ORIGINAL FULL KIT WEIGHT: 10.2 KG
ZARD FULL KIT WEIGHT: 5.2 KG

SIGNIFICANT INCREASE, COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL EXHAUST SYSTEM,
IN TERMS OF TORQUE AND POWER AT ANY RANGE, ASTONISHING SOUND.

I like the little tool pouch that goes on the side cover to replace the heat shield or cover it up. Looks like a great upgrade over the stock system.

Nice install!

curious if you will be installing any crash bars with it?
Probably not. They just add more weight and I don't plan on dropping it. :)

I have a CRF for gnarly stuff, but I'm getting a bit old for that kind of riding to be honest, so most likely the worst my Scrambler will see is our local gravel roads.

Yeh that is a very good question Timmy I have crash bars on my XE and I'm definitely not removing them and I also want a two into one system and I do not want to spend drug money on my next system, I did look at the TECBIKE two into one system 350 quid or about $700 AUS is more like it but alas it will not clear foot pegs and the crash bar would be an issue as well at a guess. I would rather not drag out my mig welder out of the corner but for the money spent on Zard? yeh id would rather dust off the welder and you know the punch line! weld one up or just hold off for the minute.

I don't have the crash bars, so I can't say personally but I'm sure I read of an owner who has the Triumph bars and said they work with his Zard low exhaust. I guess Zard would be able to tell you.

Rocky, Would you say that the full Zard low is quite a bit louder than the stock setup? Did you go with the Euro 4 or the non?

One other nice thing about this Zard low for me is that you can get to the oil filler cap without a crazy thin funnel.

It's definitely louder, although not outrageously so. For a few more $$ you can now get a Euro4 spec pipe, so I assume that would be no more noisy then stock.

Yes, oil filling is a breeze.
