Samson Exhaust: The emerging Industry Leader

In the off season we attend trade shows so we can bring you the latest, and greatest products from exhaust to bling, and all the pieces in between. K and G Cycles ( had a chance to sit down with a couple of the reps from Samson for a little Q & A session. We do this from time to time because, just like you, we are riders too and want the very best for our bikes.

For those not familiaSuzuki SAM-413-971r with the Samson name and product line-up, tell me some history behind the brand:

Samson is the world leading manufacturer of exhaust systems, mufflers and accessories for Harley-Davidson and Metric motorcycles and offers a vast selection of styles that produce maximum horsepower, torque and awesome sound! Samson always has and will continue to set a standard for the motorcycle industry. Samson’s styles and designs are still copied world-wide. Even though many exhaust systems may look the same, nothing compares to a Samson exhaust in style, performance, sound, and quality.

What was your vision when Samson began?

From the very beginning many years ago, we set out to build the very best motorcycle exhaust systems. We designed every aspect of our company to do just that, and we’ve succeeded! Being a biker in the motorcycle industry does give us a very sharp edge on the competition. We (Samson U.S.A.) started making exhaust for Harley’s back in 1969. This has been my life and we will continue to be a leader in the field.

Bull Dawgs SAM-221-801 What are some of your premiere exhaust systems?

Samson manufactures a complete line of exhaust systems with different looks and functions including the Legend Series two pipes on one side, Fishtails and Longtails now with or without removable tips. The True Dual Crossover and Crossunder systems are perfect for the Softail and Bagger bikes. We have the revolutionary dB Killer Systems which reduce the decibel level to only 84 dB’s at idle. Also don’t forget about the new horsepower pounding Powerflow III systems which are a 2 into 1 high performance system that allows for interchangeable baffles.

How does the customer know they are getting a good product?

Every exhaust manufactured by Samson is dyno tested before going into mass production for the ultimate in peak performance. Samson has literally hundreds of different styles to choose from and we have all the styles available for many current Metric models and Harley’s new 2013 model lineup too.

Warlord II Hellraiser SAM-115-961Being based out of California, how does Samson approach the tough Emission Laws there?

Exhaust systems that do not replace a catalytic converter or other emissions-related equipment are considered “replacement parts” by the California Air Resources Board. Other exhaust systems appearing throughout this website are not intended for use on any noise or pollution controlled vehicle (except those used exclusively in organized and sanctioned racing events) or when the installation of the same would be in violation of state or federal laws or regulations governing noise or air pollution requirements.”

So you see, Samson Exhaust is making exhaust for the rider. Developing systems on the dyno before they reach you and I means we get the best power and sound combinations around.
