This 50 year old loves the sound and get's a great, big hooligan smile when I roll on the throttle- it's great IMO!
lol, i know that, but the thing is as an enduro rider i've come to hate loud exhaust, because it's useless.
i also burned that phase (loud cars, loud bikes) so i have come to terms in this.
Come one! tell you you can stand the 2 akras without the baffle on a 5 day trip? if you say yes you have to be lying.

On the freeway it's not much (if any) louder than the stock cans.

It seems to "BRAP" louder when you rev it - it's a straight through design so I expected that.

Why did you bother to remove the graphite seals from the old H pipe if they were not needed with the new Y pipe? (I left mine in the old pipe just in case I had to reinstall it for some reason, such as an inspection if I got into any legal trouble.) Also, I didn't have to remove the seat release either, I am curious why you had to do that?

Nice looking bike. How many miles are on it?

The graphite seals were in the way ie the header's outside diameter was too big with the seals in place.

The Remus pipe was a tight fit on the bare header pipes.

As far as the seat lock goes, I wanted to lay the left side panel up & away from the middle of the bike and as the seat lock & cable are attached to the side panel, I had to remove it.

Only 3000 miles on the ADV...........

Oh, okay, that makes sense. Mine were stuck on the inside of the H-pine so they came off with the H-pipe. Yours must have stuck to the header instead.

Exactly. I read about the seals not being needed at a review posted at KTMTwins.com so I had a bit of early info on them. I will post up an edit about the seals.

We gained a good one!

Hondo, The information on the Remus is appreciated as is your usual attention to detail. I have looked at this system also. As one orange and green rider to another, welcome to the LC8 fold. Have you contemplated intake modifications to compliment your new exhaust system? Tune ECU perhaps? I'm sure Orange Crush will benefit greatly from your contributions just as many KLR riders have.

I am planning on using Tune ECU in the future if for no other reason that to do my own 15 minute (5 min) ECu resets.

Not sure if I'll go with an aftermarket intake system like a Rotwieler- using a Uni & Filterskins in place of the snorkel now without any issues.

Good thread. I just got mine installed, and on first start up I thought they were going to be too loud. After riding it though, it's just right... I sure do like this bike!

Try Power-Tripp's TuneEcu map for "Wings, 2 into 1", you'll like it. Very smooth in the 3-5000 rpm range and still gets 42 mpg. It's included with the software.

Did your engine temps lower at all? I feel the stockers might be my issue for reaching the upper end of the spectrum of heat.

I haven't noticed any major changes in operating temp.

Just did this install yesterday, only have a short test ride in but love this set up so far, for any one thats curious I weighed all the parts and the weight savings total is 16 pounds, remus 7.5 pounds complete, stock 23.5 pounds complete. Plenty of saved weight to make up for storage box , extra fuel, whatever.
