Default Exhaust-ing confusion

Howdy, just got a new warrior last weekend and I've already started shopping for a new exhaust since the stock exhaust is still on there. I'm looking around and seeing a few options on major websites. When I look at some of the pictures and posts from guys here and on Facebook, it looks like pipes that were not traditionally labeled as fitting on the warrior are being used. Is there a significant difference between getting parts for a RS and pipes for a RS Warrior? What are some of y'alls favorite pipes to run with?

The exhaust ports are different, pipes have to be warrior specific. Not too many brands left choices are getting limited.

That's the impression I'm getting too. Almost feel compelled to pick something out ASAP before the selection dwindles... I've checked out V&H, PCS, and some Freedom performance exhausts for the warrior...any other brands that may be less known to someone coming into the realm of exhausts should know about that are geared toward the Warrior?
Many Thanks!

TTUdude;

-I like the Cobra Speedster Swept exhaust personally. Also, the exhausts by Ricky Graffeo
are works of art (custom) and not that much more than some of the offerings from the big names.

madtom421 is correct in letting you know the offerings are indeed dwindling. My advice to you is to do your research and when able, get the one you want and even if you do not install it now, you will have it. Now that we are getting the weather that old man winter is famous for, the install would make a good winter project. (Make sure you get some new OEM exhaust gaskets for the install).

Hope this helps and let the forum know what you decide on.

Thanks Rg! I just reached out to Graffeo inquiring on prices. His work looks amazing. Crazy talented!

I would probably go for the Ricky exhaust but if not just start by looking on Ebay and Craigslist as used stuff comes up for sale all the time.

-Another really nice exhaust is being offered for sale on this forum by ROCKETMANZX10R.
The Gen 2 SpeedStar 2-1 exhaust is a great performer and looks good also. I am not sure if he is willing to ship but it does not hurt to ask.

I may be wrong, but I don’t think Freedom makes pipes for the Warrior, just the Raider. And they’re known to have poor welds. PCS are famous for horrible customer service and their ceramicoating wears off almost instantly.

You can still find Cobras as well.

Good luck.
