Thanks for the ride feedback. So, the heat shield needs to be extended to cover the gap, is that where you burned your pant leg?

SteveRed, be sure to drive the point home with Staintune that they need to get that area completely covered and I'll be their first or second buyer!

Tell them to make it good and I'll buy one.

I'm Exhausted!!

Would anyone be interested in an UNUSED LeoVince exhaust for a G650X? I am so sick of waiting for this thing I might buy a Remus or Akroprivic from my dealer and sell the LeoVince on when and if it arrives!? Brand new and $700 shipped anywhere in OZ.

Steve

Yeah, I installed a TT heat shield there (the tiny one) and it seemed to solve the problem.

I emailed Staintune in Australia and they never replied.

I got a price on the BMW supplied Akrapovic: CAD$1530 list price.. and that's not including the header pipe.. oh, and it's on backorder in Germany... I wouldn't want it at half that price..

I'm hoping Staintune produces a quality exhaust for the X that's also not too loud.

Hope this isn't too far off topic. I saw this recently and it looks like a good fix when you need to be quiet or quieter.

Db dawg from Hyde Racing

They have some BMW stuff too. G650X

New BOS Exhaust for 650 XChallenge

Done some more digging and this seems the baby

Full system

Can't post the file though, damnhik

Looks great and come in @ 93dB

Alloy and with heatguards

Supplied with a Foam Filter for the XC on the Racing version and the dyno gives it another 5hp, with a link pipe to ditch the Cat

From the file they sent me

BMW G650 X ’07 stock 42,7 Hp @ 6913 rpm 57 Nm @ 2120 rpm
BMW G650 X ’07 Bos oval Ec appr. 44,4 Hp @ 6513 rpm 59 Nm @ 2048 rpm
BMW G650 X ’07 Bos oval open + kit 47,1 Hp @ 6258 rpm 62 Nm @ 2022 rpm

As you can see on the graph the exhaust smoothens the torque and in combination with the racing kit it radical changes the power of bike.
Because this is a complete new design we have to produce a lot of new tools for the production of these silencers. We will do this as fast as we can and inform you about pricing and availability.

Available late March beginning April 2008.

I'm thinking of adding the Scorpion exhaust thread here too, to keep it all together.

Does anyone know if the akropovic has a heat guard ? Also, i haven't really seen anyone discuss or show pics of the akropovic, just the remus and leo vince...is that just due to price?

I was looking to get the "best" pipe i could and wanted to get some opinions on HP / torque gains from these different pipes. Noise is not a big issue to me, i have no hearing left anyway due to years of gunfire without hearing protection...

any help is much appreciated

im a newbie on the forums... be gentle with me :)

this may be the best site ever!
