100$ for a stainless slipon not a bad deal especially if its going on the track ,it must be chineese, they show a yosh trioval copyat the bottom of the listing, it not hard to make a decent can when you copy someones design

I've had one of their other ones on my bike for 2 years now. The welds look pretty decent and nothing has started to rust, including the hardware.

I bought mine from Steelie's Cycle on eBay. Theres a HUGE thread on Svrider about this compnay, I don't think theres really been any problems.

A pipe is a pipe though, if it doesn't rust, the only other thing that could go wrong is the packing inside. I have a different model with a baffle though, that one you pictured is probably much louder.

It's just going to be used for the track bike and it has to be an open flow exhaust with the flat slides I'm running and no airbox. A stock exhaust will not work and I'm looking for less expensive alternatives. The prices on exhaust cans are just off the wall expensive. The holeshot slipon I had on the bike has seen it's last day after I highsided my brains out at Barber in September. That holeshot can lasted since 2002.

i put one on my gf's sv. it was a little tough to fit. i needed to use some washers to space it but i would say its worth the money. the quality looks good. i only have maybe 100 miles on it so i can't comment on durability. for a track bike i would not hesitate to buy it.

Only fitment issue I had was getting the mounting bracket that goes from the pipe to the pass. peg behind the pass. peg. It took a little persuading with the clamps loose, but otherwise no problems.

I've had the pipe for almost 15k/2yrs now, and its been in rain, snow, salt, etc.

I think you'll be fine. As long as the welds and finish hold up (so far so good) it'll last you a while.

Can't find any on this computer otherwise I would. I'll see if I can find a few at home. Don't have any closeups though, just full bike pics.

Heres a quick link:

http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthr...light=delkevic

I have the same model in that link. They've had quite a few different variations, styles, etc since I bought mine in July 2009.

If you're near Chicago you're definitely welcome to take a good look at it. Don't know how well they crash, but aside frm that its not a bad pipe.

I saw a delkevic exhaust on an SV at the track last year and it sounded really good actually and it looked pretty good too. I dont know how well they crash but a lot of people seem to like them.
