Who makes the SMALLEST exhaust for F700/F800GS?

A bit of an unusual approach here, but the main reason I'd be interested in ditching the stock exhaust can is that it's huge and quite obnoxious looking. So, which one of the aftermarket exhausts is the smallest while still offering decent sound?

If you chose "OTHER", please let me know which one it is.

Thanks!

I don't know about smallest, but I'm perfectly happy with my beowulf 380mm oval silencer

I've got a Remus titanium hexacone I'm really fond of. It's tucked in nicely and it's shape goes well with the lines on the bike. It sounds great but, not too loud. It comes with a dB killer that when installed makes it as quiet as stock.

Thumb Scorpion Exhaust

I have the exhaust the Metal Mule sold as a package for their balanced panniers. (I ended up going with Touratech Panniers though). I would not order from Metal Mule because it takes a long time and my exhaust arrived poorly packaged, dinged and the header pipe was bent oval. You could probably order one from Scorpion. I like the exhaust. Much lighter and thinner than stock. Then again, so is a full grown Redwood Tree. Photo below:

I really like my two-brothers... It was pretty cheap compared to all the other brands out there, the fit/finish is good, it installed very easily, and sounds good... Plus it's super light/small compared to oem

pics for reference



I did have to buy one of the two-brothers DB killers because it was a little too loud out of the box

I remember a german on this forum having the smallest exhaust ever for the 8GS... Maybe you can find his GS in the pic section...

Can you post some pics?

Glad to hear that it sounds good. The one youtube video I found of this exhaust on an F800 did not sound particularly appealing. Maybe it was just poor microphone.

Cool! Thank you. Any problems installing it? I noticed you have an F800GS... wonder if it'll be the same fitment on my F700GS. Yoshimura lumps both bikes together.

I have the LeoVince carbon. It's oval, looks great, allows for "balanced" pannier racks, AND it smoothed out the abrupt throttle response! Plus it improved mpg a little.

No problems putting it on took about ten minutes for the hole job comes with a nice pipe spring puller even . I'm not sure but I do believe it will work on the 700

I'm kind of leaning that way, too, right now, although I can't find the stainless steel one in stock at the moment. Besides, I just blew a lot of dough on a new helmet. :)
