I don’t know anything about Dominator, but of the two you’ve shown, definitely the high pipe. You might want to put this in Poll form…

Low pipes are for young people who think the pregnant guppy look is a cool thing for a motorcycle. But these are the same people who brought high-waisted jeans for girls back from the dead, so it makes sense.

I suppose it’s reasonable to worry about your MT09 “roots”, though. After all, that tradition goes aaaaaall the way back to 2013 A.D., when the low-pipe crowd didn’t even have their driver’s licences yet… 💁🏻‍♂️

…I've never been a fan of high mount exhausts. I know, my highly unpopular opinion is gonna get me banned or at the very least sent to sit by myself at lunch but there it is…
No, of course not. We welcome all opinions here, even if you’re wrong. 😝

That's a sweet exhaust....IMO might look even better if it had a MotogP style grille on it.
Agreed, and I would prefer it without the polish. Give it that raw, hand-built race pipe look. Impressive, nonetheless...
