The can does tend to stick out further...especially towards the back. Some of you may recall that I had the Highwaydirtbike.com rear LED blinkers. Although they were VERY nice, very well tucked in and protected, and very bright...having the only option to mount them flush next to the LED tail light rendered their visibility quite weak, so I had to go with the R&G ones that came with the tidy tail. That said, these guys perform great, and are made out of metal, so should withstand some beating...

If I had the HDB.com ones still, I guess I would have gone with a 1" spacer and the tip of the can would have "come in" a couple of inches...

I usually mount my Great Basin right in front of the TT large rack, which is good in this case as it will be closest to the mounting bolt, and make use of the heat shields (I do plan on buying an exhaust slider to put even more space between the plastic/bag and the can).

Last picture...again keeping in mind the Great Basin mounting...I plan on having the 1" webbing travel right at the bulge of the rear heat protector and down towards the footpeg...so it should be good...

Noticed when mounting my SR exhaust that it touches the subframe (still the aluminium one). So I moved it around a bit but I can only get it about 0.5cm from the frame.

Any material geniuses out there who can tell me if this a problem?

I'm looking for a stock exhaust if anyone has one laying around.

Here is a scratched up one.

I would love a used Leo Vince or Remus (or anything aftermarket really) if anyone has one they would like to part with.

I have a Remus titanium that will work with a stock header. It had a slight scratch and I just polished it out. I popped the end can off last month to check packing and install a 2nd sound baffle ( from a Staintune pipe). It is still too loud for me so I put the stock can back on. I'm open to offers. If you want to reopen it to remove the internal baffle, you would just drill out 6 rivets remove one screw and reassemble.

I swapped the stock header for a remus header. The stock header shrinks from 42mm to 40mm as it heads back to the muffler while the Remus starts small at 39mm and grows in diameter to 45 (use without the stock pipe gasket). I need to ride it to see if top speed increases, but theoretically, the hot gas expanding in the stock header - going from big to small - would have set up some shock waves (like in a 2 stroke expansion chamber) and without a dyno I will never know if the stock header helped or hindered scavenging from the cylinder - so it will be a seat of the pants dyno conclusion when the roads are clear.

I have a Remus on mine as well. I think it is too loud. Is there anything out there that is quieter? I know the SR is said to be quiet, but I can't find a place that sells it.

The Leo Vince is slightly louder than stock, but not much different. I swapped to the LV pipe to save some weight and hopefully lose the heat under my left leg. However, after switching I think most of the heat under my leg is coming from the engine itself and the oil reservoir.

Scheffelmeier sells it. I guess he sells it 20% less to export customers. But cant guarantee that.

Cant remember if I posted this earlier in this thread or not. I know I meant to ... A comparison between a stock exhaust and the SR Racing number. As you will see, its not dramatically louder than stock. And much quieter than the remus I used to use.

At least on the video I like it better than stock, I might just have to get that upgrade for my X...

I've returned to the stock exhaust

I've found the bike to be about 10mph faster and has more torque, than with the Remus I had before

Apart from th weight, I reckon the stock exhaust is better in all areas

Sometimes aftermarket exhaust gains are a myth and in a lot of cases you actually lose bhp and torque

Some of my friends have found the same with Remus and BOS cans on their G650X series bike and have returned to stock can

I guess BMW got it right

You're totally right there.

http://www.motorradonline.de/sixcms/..._r1200gs_1.pdf

A big detailed test of 15 aftermarket exhausts for the 1200 GS with all the big brands ...

Only 2 of the 15 increased power ... SR Racing and AC Schnitzer. All tested models of Leo Vince and Remus, Arrow, Laser etc, decreased power.

Of the 15, the SR Racing was also the closest to stock noise levels.

So for my money, there are only two exhausts in the race.

The factory BMW one, which is the quietest and 3rd out of 16 in terms of power, and the SR racing which is the most powerful and second quietest - it will also save you about 3 kgs over stock.

I had a Remus for the first 60,000 km on the bike. It was loud and it split open.

How much are the SR ones?
