F800GS aftermarket exhaust
 
So anybody dropped the coin to get an aftermarket exhaust for the new F800GS? The dealer had a GS with a Remus hexacone slip on and pulled it out for me to hear. Wow! You want a deeper, meaner growl..... I almost dropped 8 bills right then and there.

Aftermarket Exhaust
 
Yes, please! I JUST got my new 800 GS and am absolutely in love right now (it sleeps in my room at the foot of my bed). So now I've got farkle-itis. Exhaust is pretty high on my list. I put Remus on my R1150R and it was the best sounding system I could find back in '03. I wouldn't have a problem getting another Remus, but should I be looking at Akra? Remus is a little cheaper, but sound is where it's at for me. Anyone heard the two side by side?:ear
P.S. Is it wierd that I kind of enjoy the stock exhaust? Just a tiny rumble with stealthy-quiet cruising? I can't believe I'm saying this.

That's a hell of a deal, you no like?

Never out of the box/just decided to not use it. If it doesn't sell, I'll install it in a month or so. How are the keys these days?

Windy today, cool.
Nice on the island, shitty on the water.

That seems a little counterproductive doesn't it?

Increase motor performance while decreasing ground clearance. So it sounds good while you're stuck on a rock? :lol3

......Jus havin fun man, but really how much did you have to lower it?

Airbornexts912 11-23-2008 10:19 AM

Well
 
Only an inch. worth the bigger pipes...

I've been eyeballin' the Leo Vince slip on. Anyone have that yet? I've always like Leo's for off road/MX bikes. Price wise they're hard to beat, too.

I'm about to do the same thing. I wonder if I'll have to alter my BMW bash plate?

How much bigger are these headers?
