I have these three exhausts for smaller-than-200 motors.
L-R : Stock, Scooterworks "Sport" , and Road 2.
Any opinions /comments on the one in the middle ?

From the pic, the middle one does not look all that much different from the stock one other than a slightly larger pipe. but I never ran one, so I don't know.

Looks like the "bargain aftermarket exhaust" Mercato sells. Slightly bigger pipe, stock feel, not bad.

The one in the middle looks a LOT like a stock PX 125 pipe.
You can see here how it compares, performance wise, to your SIP Road 2:

Thanks, that's an interesting video,
I think I had that middle one on at some point and took it off for some reason and can't remember what I thought of it. Was a while ago.. To me, it's mostly about noise and if the R2 is nice and not too loud I'll probably go for that. I put a Sito+ on once and it really kicked the power but I'd had enough of it after one day.
I'll check them out when get the motor back together.

I have a Road 2 and the sound is much more pleasant than the Sito+, if you're hesitant to try the Road thanks to the experience with the Sito

I've had both of those and I think the Polini is better both in performance and sound quality. YMMV
I changed the jets when I moved up to the Sito+ and have not needed to change them for the SIP Road 2 or the Polini.

The R2 on the Stella I sold to a friend is the red one with the two chrome pipes. I wonder how much affect the tail pipes have on the sound, which seems good to my ears.

I Chopped the two chrome pipes off the Road 2 Sport I inherited. Can't remove the wheel without taking off the exhaust first with the long pipes.
Made no difference in sound.

Have to say, the Polini makes a delicious sound 3-6k rpm. Took a few weeks to appreciate it.
If you see it's Dyno graph on that SIP video, makes sense.

This is going on an older LML crate motor ( in great condition) with a DR and a 24/24. I am pretty sure that for the past 10 years or so I have been running a 108 with the stock box, which is a drilled out 105, if I recall.... With the R2 on there, can you help save me from having to buy $20 of jets I don't need ? 110-112 ? Thanks
