XJ6 aftermarket exhaust


New Member
I've been reading up on modifying the exhaust for the XJ6N and I think i'm going to go for a full system.

Reason i'm posting up is because if I was to go for a SC projects full system would I need to modify anything else like O2 sensors etc (as this is what would need to be done with the R6 headers method wouldn't it?)

Any advice would be welcomed as i'm abit of a newbie when it comes to modifying parts, and the stock sound of the XJ6 is abit pathetic!

Thanks in advance, Ash.

Hello atg90.

I've been in your situation before as most of us Bikers ofcourse. I'm gonna copy/paste you one list I've made on another forum to help people decide. Its about one year old tho but shouldnt be a problem.

Actually, since I'm a little bit confused about this matter, I'm gonna write down my options.

1.) Arrow Exhaust. (http://www.arrow.it/eng/website/)

3.) DEVIL Exhaust (Home - Devil exhaust)

and for last, the well known..

So, there we go, pretty much a full "detailed" list of any current Exhaust's fitting our bikes. As I've already said, within next month, getting myself a new exhaust but yea, I have to decide which one first.
My first choice goes for SC Project one 'cus I like the sound and the looks of it, plus its price is affordable for me.
Then there is SHARK, which I reaaallly like BUT I've no idea where to find one, its price etc. Any help on this one would be appreciated.
And for my last choice, Arrow gets the place. I've seen myself many Arrows around, its quality is top stuff. For its price, well, pretty much the same as SC Project which is fine. What worries me is that its not underbody one but sticks out from my right side, I've no idea how good or bad that is.

Either help me on this one or I'm gonna need to re-format my brain! Too many info's and thoughts..
As I said, that list is one years old. I've picked SC Project about one month after I made this list and so far, I'm really inlove with my exhaust.. It sounds like a beast, it looks awesome and its not that costly.

Good luck with your choice :)

Ah thanks for that, I was aware of a few of those but does open your eyes to what is available.

I do like the SC one the best though, so will probably go for that one. When you fitted yours was it just a case of fitting the exhaust then done of did you need to change anything or fit a power commander? As I don't want the fuss of having to change bits like this just want a nicer look/better sound.

Do you also have any pics/vids of the exhaust on your bike?

Thanks again for that info on the exhausts available, Ash.

Hey, thank you very much for a great and detailed list! I don't suppose you know if these systems are compatible with a center stand as well?

Hi Chris,
I've also got the SC project exhaust on my 2009 XJ6-N, but am struggling to understand how the baffle is to be removed.

I see in your pictures that yours is out, would you mind informing me of the process necessary to remove it? Thanks!
