    Hello fellow Scout owners,

    I bought my Scout with an aftermarket Trask exhaust and no saddlebags. Now that I have added saddlebags onto the bike the nozzle end of the pipe is right up under the bottom of the right bag. Sadly I've had to trim some of the leather off due to it becoming burnt from the hot exhaust. I have added radiant barrier tape capable of withstanding 2,000 degrees F to the bottom, but even that started to peel off after a couple rides.

    The aftermarket selection I've found online are mainly slip-ons for the stock 2 pipes. The trask is a 2 to 1 system. Anyone have any ideas?

    Two Brothers racing has an answer. Search the Dealer Custom Scout thread.

    You could cut or remove the black part and put a short turndown pipe and cock it at about a 45 degree away from the bike thus making the exhaust blowing down and out away from the bike

    I agree with Baldhead in that, namely you need to be looking at another system,......Even look at the original Scout set-up and fit Stage one Indian mufflers,.....not cheap but a way,.......There are plenty aftermarket systems out there that fit with the Indian saddlebags,.....You just have to choose which one you like,.....
