    To those who own or are considering the V7-850, what interest do you have in exhaust offerings, as to muffler style and/or a full system?
    We can of course easily make our GP Megs, or our reverse cones work, but we’ll probably mix it up some depending on what you might be interested in. If you are a serious buyer, vote and post below.
    See this thread for what we can offer; https://guzzitech.com/forums/threads/gtm-v7-850-exhaust-offerings.21782/

    Hello, I know I am late to the party but I am picking up the Centenario in the next week. I will probably leave it stock till next summer at which time I'd be seriously interested in a full exhaust. The goals would be getting as close as possible to the V85TT performance numbers while improving the already sweet sounding exhaust.

    Congrats, hope you’ll add your info to the Registry page; https://guzzitech.com/forums/threads/v7-registry-picture-thread-add-your-bike.9108/
    I’ll be showing products as we go that I make, and I’m curious as to power too… However as stated previously, they used the same small V7 throttle body/ECU on the 7/850, not the big TB on on the V85TT, so power will not get anywhere close unfortunately.

    I like a fully system. 2-1 system matter of fact. Of course sound loud. And power gain and weight saving too.

    I got an slip on exhaust from Motiv Cycle works in Oklahoma, which worked on the previous v7 iii without a tune and was ok, but not so on my 2021 v7 850. Its got a lean condition, I need a tune asap, so I got to go back to the stock exhaust til that becomes available. Ill post pics and video, it sounds great and looks great with chrome tips, looks similar to the gp megs you guys make.

    Thank you! I picked it up today, and I've already put 140 miles or so on it. Such a great bike! Plenty of power, but the exhaust note is awful, sounds like a Jetsons car to me. LOL Can't wait to see what you come up with to improve the sound and performance. Oh and I will register the bike once I have a picture of myself with it!

    Hey Todd, my powder coating is coming off both sides of my exhaust right where it comes out of the cylinder heads... Is this common? Sounds like the dealer is going to cover it, wondering if it's something to worry about, maybe when I order your full exhaust I'll go with a different finish.

    Per other reports that's a potential warranty item, Matt. Check with your dealer?

    Same as prior note, please email me instead of calling me on out here on the Forum.
    It could be common amongst 2021 models, hard to say as of right now. This is a poor surface prep issue in my experience. We use a military developed product called Cerakote, which is heat and UV stable. That said, it will slightly discolor with time and use/abuse.
    Also, OEM pipes are double wall, ours are single. Our stainless brushed is easily revived with scotch-brush pads and simple metal polish or spray. I'm looking at doing a run of titanium as I've had a people ask. It will be quite pricey though.
    We are going into production this week on my V7-850 GP Megs and the full system is available now; https://guzzitech.com/forums/threads/gtm-v7-850-exhaust-offerings.21782/
