    Default Delkevic Exhaust - I just installed another set and the fit is awesome.

    I have a shop n Northern California called The Vintage Monkey. I am lucky enough to have a constant supply of vintage bikes come in for repair and major restoration. Of my favorites the GS is high on the list and I seem to always have 1 or 2 in the shop
    I wanted to share with the forum how much I really like these Delkevic exhausts. The fit and finish is excellent.
    I have installed new from the box Mac, Kerker(NOS) Yoshimura and Delkevic. The Delkevic are well worth it. I am not sponsored to say this..I just really wanted to share.

    This is the GS1000E exhaust mounted on the GS1000GL - The girl at the counted told me I would have to modify the mounting bracket at the muffler - I moved the hole 1/4" up and it fit great.

    Sounds Awesome!

    Also nice to see the center stand gets to stay.
    Does the system have to be removed when changing the oil and/or oil filter?

    Removed for oil change yes - I have yet to see a 4into1 that doesnt, but you can remove the cover and make a mess if you do not want to remove the exhaust. It is probably more of a preference with these than a necessity

    No, you don't have to remove it for oil changes. If you had to do that, that would have been a major anti-buying strike as far as I'm concerned. I've not had to remove a 4-1 for oil changes for several decades.

    The Marving and the Delkovic don't need removing, neither does the K&N. The Yoshi & Bassani pipes I've had did need removing. Bit of a pain!

    I have a full Delkvic on the Bonneville. I love it! They really do a great job at bringing an affordable and quality aftermarket option to the table.

    Looks great on the GS!

    I tell ya man... I was looking at thousands to replace my stock Triumph exhaust, the Delkvic got me back on the road and I gained some hp to boot! I've tried TEC on my T120 that's in the same price range and it's Total crap. If you need a good working decent looking exhaust that works, I'll recommend a Delkvic!
