Aftermarket Desert Sled exhaust

Hey everybody! Just scored my Desert Sled the other day, and I'm already looking to tinker with it and swapping exhaust. The swingarm is slightly different, but does anyone with aftermarket exhaust have close up pictures of mounting points? I'm zeroed in on Zard (Special Edition in either low or high mount), but I want to see where they actually mount up (close ups would be much appreciated). Thanks in advance.

Since no one replied, did you ever find anything that worked and do you have pics?

Here's a link I added regarding a recent Akrapovic install I did on my Desert Sled.

New video clip of the Akra exhaust. I made a small bracket for the exhaust to mount better. I'll do a write-up on it shortly.

All of the low Sled exhausts mount up at the same point, near the rear brake master cylinder.

I've seen videos of the Zard on the Sled, it sounds very nice.

You can see the hanger bracket in this video.


I personally am going with a Leo Vince GP style slip-on though I completely understand I will need to make a custom bracket to mount it. It's been done already and I'm well versed in fabrication so no biggie. For some reason Leo Vince hasn't seen fit to design a new bracket for the GP style on the Sled, only the original Scramblers. They offer a different pipe for the Sled which I don't like as well.
