The inevitable has happened and my 9 year old original exhaust is failing. :confused:
I can replace it with the OEM but really wanted to go with an after market one. Well guess what? They don't make them any more! Yoshimura, Leo Vince, etc....not for the pre-2007's at least. :rolleyes:
Might just have to order a slip-on and modify the pipes but I'd rather get the complete set-up. Any thoughts on any North American sources?

Sure there is - just hit the 'EDIT' button. You get about 10 minutes or so to edit your posts. Its right next to the 'Quote' button at the bottom of your post.

Keep an eye on eBay, I got a Leo Vince system for $145 shipped--though I quickly found it to add nothing but noise (literally, no power gain of any magnitude in any rpm range) and went back to the stock system.

A year or so ago I picked up another stock system from an '06 for $85 (also on eBay) that now lives in my attic as a "just in case" investment...

Well I found the only US distributor for them so I won't have to deal with shipping and customs from Europe. They are very helpful and friendly and just 1 state away in Tennessee! They specialize in performance exhaust systems for performance bikes and and would love to help out any way they can. They even offered to add a scooter section to their online catalog. The people I've talked with seem great and I believe I will be ordering one of their MIVV systems from them. They only have the one option for our older scooter's but 3 very cool choices for the newer 400's. They currently do not stock any scooter parts at all but are very interested in adding them to their inventory. I will be doing a full review of the supplier and exhaust system when it comes in about 3 weeks. Probably an installation tutorial video as well!
Hoping for the best from a distributor for a company that is still making exhausts for our scoots and guaranteeing them too. :cool:

Of course I will post a video of the before and after sound comparison of the OEM and the MIVV exhaust. The place I got it does not do traditional online order and payment. They prefer to verify the order and parts before contacting you to make the payment. That prevents mix ups and confusion amongst their customers. The best part is MIVV provides a full schematic and assembly video to their customers.
The company in Tennessee is PJ's Parts and can be found here: http://www.pjsparts.com/
If you contact them tell them Steve sent you.

Looks to me like an excuse for a Burgman road trip! :D maybe they can prototype the system on your scoot. (That would be pretty cool.)
