The high mounted exhaust is it cool / retro and purposeful or plain ugly? Now that we are getting betting images posted by the day I cant decide about the above.

Personally I think the high level style risks thigh burns for a pillion, for me it's style over function unless you really do need that clearance, and not just for the odd kerb....but I think we'll find that the after market for exhausts will be significant - just look at the page views on this site relating to modifications....

I always liked how high pipes like the above looks, it's a clean and fluid look that just sits well with me.

Thanks @moxox thats my exact arguement. I doubt the route of the piping would make any sigificant changes to the performance other than increasing heat around the legs if not worse already.

My Monster 796 already puts out a significant amount of engine heat on the left leg, so I can't see wanting to also burn my right leg with the high mount exhaust! LOL

I like this GP style Termi exhaust way better!

yes, lets leave the branding to the cows.

I'd prefer the slip on termi as well. Akro should be too far behind either they should have something coming out.

Personally, I like the high mounted exhaust. I've always liked the Triumph Scramblers, for the same reason. Not really the most practical placement, but it looks good to me, and matches the overall look of the Scrambler Classic. In the end, it's all about what you want.

It seems to me that the Scrambler was created for people who tend to value the looks and styling of their bike more than other things. I could see plenty of people choosing to do the high mount exhaust even if it isn't as practical. I would totally consider it.

I Like very much the high pipe. But I don´t know if it will burn a bit. Question... having that high pipe would kill the chance to use the right side bag?
On the other hand... the low pipe, has the chance of hitting pavement on close turns to the right side, or so I have seen in a Youtube Video...
I will post both the video and the foto where you can see the scratch.

I don't think it will allow to go into terrain. Lowest point of Scrambler is pipe comming out of rear cylinder not the pipe itself.

I don't really get why the aftermarket companies are leaving the rear pipe down low, which negates the whole point of a high pipe on a scrambler.

Zard is the only one I've seen so far that attempts to get the pipes routed in a logical manner.

I'm sure that you can feel the heat a bit from the high mount exhaust, but assuming that it is designed well, it wouldn't be to a degree that would make the bike feel difficult or impossible to ride. I also think that it might be worse for the passenger as far as heat goes and not the main rider.

Agree Helios. What about using side bags with the High Exhaust??? You loose the right hand side one?
have you seen the video with the low exhaust chipped off from turning?

oh god there is no way i go with hight exhaust.

I don't want to worry about me or my passanger to get burnt, about luggages melting and most important, the heat during a city ride in summer is going to be a real issue.

It's already a down side of my Monster 1100evo.
