hi flanny

your video was amazing!!! music... you... ALL!!!

the base for this is the dakar exaust...

this is the rear... is like the dakar exaust... on the final version there will be the holes for lambda sensors...for 990...



before this i fitted a couples of akras... and other GPR classic exaust... this 2in1 have much larger tubes than the series one...

at now i've the carburators settings for arkras so i need to set better for 2in1 but the bike at now seems to go so sweet on low rpm... i've not tested on high... here is freezing!!!

on lc8.org we are looking for a producer for a RALLY CARBON PLATE... like the dakar one.

Looks to me me like all you'd need to do to the skid plate would be to cut a chunk out of the right hand side plastic part. The bike in the photos still has the main metal part of the skid plate fitted. As long as you had something at the front to protect the solenoid I think it'd be ok.

Very nice looking exhaust. If these go on sale I might almost be tempted. What's the volume like compared to stock? I'm one of those weird riders who prefers a quiet system :)

yes... the side panel is cheaper so no problem to cut.

the noise is to improve... at now is "richer" than akra... is different.. big...but not noisy...

GPR will work on dbkiller to set the sound...

Finaly, something good from Europe! :)
I'm really interrested in the pricing of this one. This would allow for lots of extra travel space and possibly fuel!

Think i would just want headers and then have the pipe under the boxes, like the old 620 adventure had. It could be narrow then.

yeah... one of the advantage is the space for rear tanks.

but the main advantage is... NO MORE HOT UNDER THE ASS!!!

does the stock exauhst run under the bike? That set-up would be a negative for me. It is just waiting to get smashed. If you never rode off-raod than it would be fine but not if you ever hit the dirt. If you smash that it won't only be expensive to fix, it is a guaranteed smashed; skid plate or not.

Mateo with the relocation of the muffler bracket, I'm sure that my tanks would fit your bike. This is a milestone in the life of Meoni's LC8. It was getting rid of the heat that motivated me to start.

Ah, you might want to check out how the rally - e.g. Paris-Dakar - bikes are set up....

Last I looked, a lot of that was dirt

I never really looked at the rally bikes, if they run it like that, than I stand corrected! It just seems like a smashed pipe waiting to happen.

All the more reason for a "good" skid plate.

These really are beautiful.
Although I am spending time with my new girlfriend (530EXCR) I can imagine going back to my old orange boiler (2003 950s) and giving her a gift of these at some point. I like the sound of that skid plate too. I have mooched around the Sommer site for a long time on that but never pulled the pin.
Keep going! I'll have both girls in BIG BEND for the return of the Pyndon et al

Beautiful set up. I'd go with these if my stockers develop cracking issues. As for your ass cooking, kudo's for moving the pipes else where, BUT, you still get alot of heat from that rear cylinder, ever have your seat off and feel that oven underneath , just where your ass is planted, now thats hot. I'f there was a way of venting that air better, I'm sure all of our toasty asses would benefit. !!!
Any price on this new set up, and who will be handling them????
