Your Remus may have worn out the packing. Check wth a Remus rep and have them find you to a can man in your area. My Remus Rev. TI 2 into one is still quiet and inconspicuous in town...

Look for one from the west coast

Detroit is too far for what you're looking for. You'd be better off targeting Scudera territory... That's a KTM dealer out of San Francisco that sold and serviced a bevy of good 950/990's.
