I have decided on either the remus or akropovic for my 650x, does anyone know if you must re-map the bike for the pipe? This is my first fuel injected bike that is not from japan. The remus vendor out here said you can just install and go... ?

That seems wrong to me...

I got an MSRP of CAD$1480 for the BMW supplied Akrapovic.. and that's without the header pipe. Too rich for even me.

The Remus can is a slip on.. nothing to remap. But I heard it wasn't quiet.

Leo Vince Update?

Guys,

I've just ordered a Leo Vince exhaust, and whilst poking around on their website, I noticed that they seem to have changed the design to incorporate another heatshield, right where everyone says there should be one.

You can just see the small square of carbon in this pic:

And you can see it more clearly in the exploded diagram, available here:

I guess some manufacturers do listen!

I'm hoping mine will come with this update. If it does, I'll post pics here.

My exhaust turned up today, and I fitted it during my lunch break. I'm happy to see it did include the additional heat shield. Attached is a pic of it on my bike. Leo Vince owners may be able to get them from the manufacturer seperatly.

I have the Remus, love it. Pulled the bung out of it, took the air filter cover off and it pulls like a 14 year old, has more grunt than a piggery at feed time and more talk than a truckstop Cafe.

Love the change in power and now it sounds like a thumper.

Just got mine back with the full remus freeride system.... wow! It is like someone fed it a red bull! I am very supprised at the difference a simple exhaust system makes on this bike. I am going to add a K&N filter, i'm sure it will help a bit more but very little in the way of noticeability at this point just easier for me to clean etc.

It is loud though. I like it better because the stock exhaust was impossible to hear on a highway or going fast down a "main" road. It was hard to hear how hard it was working to stay at those speeds. I had it out today and drove 20 miles to start the ride and did 75+ the whole way and it wasn't even working.

I love it ! The plus's greatly outway the sound which is similar to a yz / cr / rm 450 with a pipe. In the woods when you are just goosing it around it is not that bad.

It is only abnoxious when you really pour it on

A couple of my friends who have ridden the bike before/after also can't believe the throttle response and pep it added.

Get it you won't regret it !

I was thinking about experimenting with the Supertrapp "Superlight Stainless" - which was essentially the "Adventure Pipe" on my old Dakar.

I'm poking around at the office currently - does anyone have the pipe diameter for the XChall handy so I can plan which slipon to add?

It is very close to 1-3/4... I used a stainless 1-3/4 mandrel bend lead pipe to connect to the OEM head pipe.



I suppose I should post this here:

Supertrapp IDS2 quiet core muffler. Custom fabricated stainless conecting pipe.

clearly marked forest approved
rebuildable
tunable by adding/removing disks
cool sound
no cat - runs cooler
can be purchased as a "universal" muffler, mounting tab and emblem are included but not mounted from the factory
a tad smaller than OEM...

Shawn, were you pounding in fence posts with the stock pipe?

No one will ever accuse you of pampering your X. It looks great!

Ok, after seeing the damage Shawn did with the aftermarket Exhaust, I decided to finally do my Stock exhaust core test......

Instead of hacking the end cap off, I thought it might be easier to make a small incision under the end cap to allow the saw-zall blade enough room to
saw the witches snout off



Add Saw-zall with Lazer blade........



Once you get a nice straight line started, it happens pretty quick.....



Now its time to snip the snout off by inserting the saw zall blade into our nice clean slot.....



The Key is to start slowly and watch the throw of the blade in the saw. If your not carefull, you'll bang the top of the cone up by whacking it with the blade tip. Fortunately for me, I'm a saw-zal master and made a nice clean cut

Now we drag out the big hardware to burn a hole in the muffler, so we can remove the inner core.....



The hole saw is a 1 7/8" with the pilot bit removed. If you use the lower part of the tail pipe(big tail pipe) as a guide you can start the hole on the top first and then pivot the hole saw down to finish the hole. Trying to start the hole saw square is impossible.... it will walk all over the place!




If you're carefull and take your time, it should look like this....






This is what you'll pull out.......



This is the pic from my old beat up test exhaust, but its the same idea.


Results of the test.....



Sound is much better and more thumper like without being obnoxious and Harley like. It actually reminds me of what my 2000 640 ADV sounded like after I did the Creeper core mod. I took her down the road and noticed a HUGE improvement in throttle responds and down low power. I was back to roll on wheelies from a rolling start

Thank you for tuning in to Cranky core 5000

Yo Crankster,

what does this get you? A bit more flow and a better tone?

The cat is still in there and it's still mega hot?

I have the Remus Freeride. But I took it off and put the stocker back on. I can't stand everyone turning from a block and a half down to see what is coming roaring down the road and it's just me on my lil beemer.. I like stealth. How am I supposed to get a good shot off when everyone hears and sees me coming?

I will say that just from my "arm scale" that the stocker has about 10lbs on the Remus. I'd like the Remus if it just wasn't so effing loud!

Have you had any thoughts about continuing your surgery to remove the cat from this thing? I remember people doing that on the KTM 950 silencers.

Thanks for the pics. And from one sawzall-master to another... it's all about the sensitive trigger finger.
