Stock pipe sounds fine but is it just me or does it like to burn gear?

The aspect of dropping some weight and a nice cool to the touch Titanium can are appetizing.

I think I'm torn between the Holeshot and Remus. I like the idea of Titanium on the Remus but the Holeshot looks sleek and thin.

Decisions, decisions...

Loose exhaust pipe F800GS

This is my first post fellas, Patience if I'm in the wrong place. One can get lost in this maze of info..

Question; Any one have a loose exhaust pipe on their 800 ? I installed a set of Jesse's (lovin em) and even w/ the replacement bolt tight thru the Jesse mount and thru the exhaust pipe mount, the pipe is loose in it's fitting.

Before tearing it down again, was wondering if the factory wants that much play or is the rubber (?) bushing amiss ? W/ exhaust pipe pushed outward, its is snug, but after a couple of bumps in the road I am sure it will back to its loose left - right play.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions..... Mark

Mine is pretty loose as well. I was a bit concerned at first then I read here how most of the bikes had the same condition. I think the canister is probably fine, just loose fitting and wiggles a bit.

Mine was loose as well when I removed it. Then again, it is mounted on rubber - might be part of the design - to keeping vibrations down.

I went with the Remus hex can - I think it goes well with the bike's lines. I'm keeping the baffle in for the time being - we'll see how that goes. I can't get over how overly large (and heavy) the stock can is!

Leo Vince. Cool to the touch, sounds great, less than $500

Looks good mate... I personally try avoid carbon fiber here in Vegas since the sun has a tendency to eat it up but I do appreciate the weight and temperature advantages.

Ditto. The Leo cans usually sound pretty good too.

No shortage of sun here in south Fla. either. I keep the bike covered when parked at home (no garage).
I'm hoping it will prevent some of the fading on plastics I had with my 650 that I didn't cover.

Maybe I can slather the Leo with a nice SPF 45.

Check this stuff out. I have used this stuff extensively in sunny California on all my carbon stuff to keep the sun from damaging it. It works really well if you do a good coat of BLACK color match Turtle Wax on the carbon first before you apply the 303. Don't use regular wax as it'll leave white residue in the pits of the carbon. Regular treatments of this regiment will keep your carbon looking good for years.

How about Laser.....?

Guys,

Just to add a new dimension into the mix how about Laser?

http://www.laserexhausts.com/dotcont...0372677.7032.I

Their site gives dyno outputs piccies and sounds. They do road legal and 'not so' as well as a Ti model for you fashion vicitims....

One thing about all of the pipes I've seen though is that they're all HUGE.

I used to have a Laser on my E900 'Fant and it was V compact - sounded pretty fruity though

Both the road legal and off road only variants were the same size - Whats the story with these monsters?

I don't know what brand it is, has nothing on it, I got it at the right price,but its beautifully made from stainless steel and carbon fibre, mechanically baffled, weighs 2.3 kg less than the standard can, and sounds horn!!

Anyone mind measuring the diameter of the pipe where the silencer mounts? I have an old silencer in the garage and haven't taken delivery of my brand new 800GS yet. I wonder if it will fit.
