Went from stock to a 2 into 1 with a Neptune pipe. With the baffle in, it doesn't sound good. Baffle out, sounds incredible, but is loud with the throttle wide open. Keep throttle touch light, and it's fairly quiet (neighbors haven't complained). Less heat, but still some on the right side, and a lot less weight, which I quickly negated by adding a rear fuel tank.

Be careful running 2-1 with baffles/db killers on these bikes.... Here's my Remus.

I replaced the stock cans on my 950SE with a pair of FMF TiQ4. I wanted to get rid of the heat associated with the stock cans and it worked.

I don't care for loud exhausts. The TiQ4 is louder than stock but it's acceptable for me. At the time I lived in AZ which required bikes get emission-checked. I mounted the cans, dealer tech checked the emissions and no carb adjustments were needed.

I got the cans new from a guy who was just starting his own M/C repair shop and he gave me a good deal on the pair. Sold the stock cans here.

On my Adventure I have a 2-1 out the left with a Neptune meant for a GS... Awesome sound, not loud. Picked it up new on closeout for $50

SE (#1) also a 2-1 out the left. Had another Neptune from a sport bike of some sort. Was never happy with it. Didn't seem to work with the LC8 all that well. Recently picked up a Wings slip-on meant for a 640. All is well now!!!

SE (#2) has a 2-1 out the left with a single FMF (from an LC8 pair). I think it's too restrictive,,,, looking for a replacement.

I had wings on the last SE owned, they were great, and FMF 2 into 1 as well.
The current SE is still on stock form, just weighing my options on what cans to explore next.

I have had the FMF Ti's on my bike since 06' The newer version are very different from the original version. Original has the Sparky embedded & ALL Ti. The newer version is Ti plus removable sparkys. I love the dual exhaust note on the SE & powercells tank is perfect for the SE. Like NW said, 5 gallons =150 miles

RIDE ON!

Rottweiler air filter

Today I fitted a Rottweiler air filter, pro jet kit and blanking off plates and my bike is now noticeably down on power through the whole rev range. WTF is going on???

On a positive note the back-firing has gone, she starts easier and idles better.

I also dig the induction noise.

Well that sucks. Could be a number of things but sounds like you were lean before and now are too fat. Not sure of your exhaust, altitude, needle setting, float setting, or main sizes, but I'd drop down the mains a step or two for starters and see what happens. It's a breeze now that you got rid of the closed air box.

Make sure you got your diaphrams seated/sealed correctly....slides are getting full vacume and opening,start bike with rotty removed and you will see slides open and shut.

To those of you who have installed center stands:

Any of you add center stands, then lengthened them a couple inches, then it seems the center stand is floppy in the UP position?

What fixes did u use? I'm considering 2 new springs to start out with.

Thx

Not really a 'sale' as much as giving away, just pay for shipping. Some people like to have them in their camel bak as a back up.........especially since these can leave you stranded. And ktm doesn't sell these individually.

It can very easily go in the trash. Just seeing if someone wants them and will pay for shipping. No skin off my nads.
