DR650SE Index Topic #11- EXHAUST
 
The factory muffler is not nearly as restrictive as things are on the intake side, but there is some corked-up power to be found by switching mufflers. But often the attraction of swapping exhausts is just as likely to be the weight savings, as the stocker weighs in at nearly 15 pounds.

Please share your exhaust improvements...

ditto. Works great. SOunds nice. Not even a little loud just nice. Much lighter and with the carb/airbox mods made a nice improvement. Also it just looks better than the stocker.

i managed the header grind a couple weeks ago, definently sounds like it breathes better, got a little throatier.

the over-weld was a good 1/4 inch all the way around with a spot where the welds overlapped to about a good 3/8

scored a mis-labeled gsxr1k can last week off fleabay and saving up for the mid kit now,,, unless i can do as good with homemade. might still checkout the home brew route.

Stock exhaust dimensions:

Inlet: ID = 1.4"; OD = 1.51"

Outlet: ID = 1.135"; OD = 1.265"

If they removed the stock inner tube (the one that sticks out about 1/4"), when gutted, that will leave a hole; ID about 1.386"

FMF Model #S9000 Approved Spark Arrestor (thanks to mx_rob)(also available at Dennis Kirk, I think), is 1.650" OD and 3.38" long

For reference the GSXR muffler x40F0x outlet; ID is 1.680"

GSXR install (again thanks to mx-rob):

for the cost the gain in my opinion is not great enough, I just assume put that money into a bigger piston or suspension mods. :dunno

DR 650 Intake/Exhaust Mods
 
The bike had the Dynojet carb kit & cut airbox when I bought it.
I added K& N Filter, FMF Q4 Muffler W Powerbomb Header.
Big savings in weight & improved power, but a little loud!

gsxr-1000 TI can
a bit vocal for me, but hard to hush a big thumper without killing it

I'm using a cheap CZR pipe for the winter so it can take the beating from the salt instead of the stocker.
Really too loud for my tastes but, it's not like I'm off-roading the thing in the winter (more commuting). F.W.I.W. Since I had already rejetted for the air-box mod she really came alive all over the rev-range. What's really funny is that even after re-gearing 4 teeth bigger on the rear, my mileage has stayed the same with an avg. of 54mpg.
This spring I'll be looking into the 2-bros pipe with the added noise restrictor. (I've really grown to like the big singles sound...just not quite this loud)

Careful!
 
Sometimes these changes come at the expense of loss of bottom end power which on a DR is a no no. You can easily gain top end and drop a little weight get more noise which you think means more power but lose that precious bottom end. Fine idea on a sreet bike but lousy on a dualsport. You usually end up losing gas milage too. So be very careful with so called power mods.

2001-2003 GSXR muffler, with the modified Two Brothers mid-pipe as sold by Kientech (it includes muffler gasket and mounting hardware).

OEM header pipe, after an evening with a wire wheel, emery cloth, steel wool, cotton buffing wheel, Autosol metal polishing cream, and lots of elbow grease.
