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.

The main reason why I wanted to core the stocker is so I can keep the cat.
I can't stand the raw unburnt fuel smell..... it makes me sick
If weight was a major concern for me, I would lose 10 pounds and use the Remus cash on a gym membership. The Remus is lighter, but its also useless as a muffler and the sound is terrible. Way to raspy and no real grunt IMHO If I took the cat out, it would be just another chambered muffler.... LOUD.

Coring the stocker gave it a deeper tone and much better throttle response. It also allowed me to keep $600-800 in my bank account so I can buy fuel and tires

Yup, Trigger finger is important.... Don't need to go rushing into the cut like John Wayne. Thats pretty much true in Life in general

I just installed the Scorpion pipe on my Country and love the changein power. I clutched up a third gear wheelie the first time out on it.

This pipe runs WAY cooler than the stocker, and breaths much freer (sp).
I have removed the airbox cover and replaced the stock air filter with a foam one from BMWAtlanta and the difference over stock is very noticable.

The only drawback?

It's insanely loud!!!!!!!!

and it sounds great! Not too loud, nice low thump. Rode with a DRZ400 and an XR650L on sunday, both bikes with full titanium exhaust systems. Both guys commented how great the X sounded. Was a bit quieter than the DRZ, a tad louder than the XR.

That is what an east coast enduro circuit will do to your bike... Good fun!

Quiet (E-Marked) Silencer without Cat

Hi,

Looking for a quiet (we're losing trails here), E-marked (street legal in EU) silencer for the XChallenge, but with no Cat - I go to places where there's only leaded petrol.

One option is the Akrapovic from BMW. The excellent parts fiche at Max BMW's site lists two versions. Can anyone confirm if which of the two are street legal and which of the two have a cat?

Thanks.

REMUS freeride

Yes the REMUS is loud

It really feels like the machine has transformed though.

Maybe a db-killer would fit.... Has anybody tried?

Tame that Freeride

Okay, I understand the Remus Freeride is loud. Anybody figure out a way to tame it?

I have the Titanium slip-on on the way from another inmate, and I want to be a good neighbour.

From my point of view, by looking and listening at those two pipies bikes like xt660z Tenere or ktm 690 I think that the best way is to root two exhaust pipes in parrallele wich gives a great sound and reduces the sound level :

The price looks potential very scary indeed, given the full one is 2060euro!

Good point for the torque at low revs! The pipe looks great, Nice heat protection.
But way too expensive...

If the Akrapovic is quiet and reasonably priced, I'd get it just to get rid of the weight and heat generated by the cat. But the price that I got from my dealer for the BMW supplied Akrapovic slip on only was around US$1400

Did I miss a review of the new Staintune slip on? How's the sound on it? Still looking for a quiet slip on.

I think my setup is perfect, not loud at all with the sparky, cheap and looks great!! You just need to find someone to fab the pipe on for you. I also feel as though the power diff. is rather large, it is way more crisp with the throttle response. More pics and details on the link below.

Rick, I just had a buddy make a decibel dog insert for my Scorpion ($400) exhaust and it's taken some of the high RPM thunder out.
It still growls pretty loud on start up..........

It Barks louder than stock but not offensively until you wind it up over 5000rpm. Improves power delivery and removes heat from CAT. Around town it's only marginally louder than stock. Cost $640Aud and easy to fit.
