I personally like the shape and sound of the original muffler.
In silver though it's too "in your face" for my liking.
On looking through mods that others have done I spotted the muffler in satin black and decided that was the way to go.

I painted the muffler in high temp black and shimmed it inboard 19mm, looked good to me.
The headers were pretty shabby, I sanded and polished them, they looked fine but as soon as I ran the bike they went manky

My solution was to get the headers coated with a high temp satin black zircon coating

I'm happy with the black exhaust system, it suits the bike

Cost of the coating was NZ$160 so with the paint all up NZ$200 about US$100

Looks great. Can we get a side-on view of the muffler?

Nice! Great job!

I have the same problem with the headers getting that mottled stain on them. It’s a bitch to polish out, looks great for 3 minutes, then they turn all crappy again. Cold/damp air makes it worse.

Looks great in all black instead of half and half.

Buono!  Back in the 1100 days, I ceramic coated my system in a titanium color.  Coating the exhaust is a nice alternative to the raw stainless.

I'm pleased with how well the zircon coating matches the high temp paint

Kinda like the dark knight with dark red highlights. Looks good Evans.

I like the look of the all-black exhaust but the deep red paint caught my attention. I'm a sucker for a nice maroon paint job.

I like what you did with your side stand too, Evans. That little stock meat hook always struck me as potentially prone to failure, though I've never actually had a problem with it on either one of my Grisos.

Yes the bent coathanger look of the sidestand lever didn't do a lot for me.
The bit I made is easy enough to kick down, which was the only thing that I was unsure of.

It's stainless steel, it wasn't until I came to fit it I realized that the stand is aluminium not steel.
mine is drilled and tapped through the side stand and bedded in high strength epoxy.

Knowing now that the stand is aluminium I would have fabricated the part in aluminium and welded it to the stand.
