Just as long as I still have enough power to spin up the tire any time any where.

I have a custom quiet insert for my Leo X3 on my Husky 610 for when I ride in the forest.. the ranger sits out there with a decibel meter now.
I wonder why he sits at the ORV area entrance instead of on Hwy93 where there are thousands of harleys going by with straight pipes?

Anyone with the GPR 2 into 1 system how does it work with hard bags and does it effect the passengers leg from heat? So the verdict is it only slighty louder than stock with the baffle installed?

I hav Remus Ti slip-ons. The bike was re-jetted by Scuderia West. It has great power everywhere, a tiny bit of surging at steady throttle 75+mph. Not sure on weight savings? I'll update with a photo later, but they look great!

Exhausting Question

I love the low pipe of the 2-1 GPR, but also love the look of the Akra cans. Does anyone know if it's possible to use the Akra can with GPR pipe? OR Is there a 2-1 low pipe available from Akra? There used them on the rally 950's. It would be great to have them available for the rest of us.

Seems I'm the only one yet not going mainstream with this. I've got Fuels. Stainless steel, lifetime warranty, look a bit like Acrapovics and with baffles in not much louder than stock. Without, well..

Made in the UK and at 290 pounds very affordable. I'm happy with them. The FUEL text on each side in the rear looks kinda badass.

Akro's

My son tells me the dog gets up & goes to the door about 2 minutes before I roll down the driveway everytime I come home

My girlfriend told me she could hear me over 1/2 mile away- could tell where I was by the number of stop signs I accelerated away from

That's no inserts, btw. I used to have a couple of Moto Guzzis and can say that this bike sounds similar when "uncorked"- way better than a Harley ever, ever thought it could- that's why I still have them on

I prefer quiet pipes, these came with the bike. Light as a feather and have held up for years including a trip to Alaska, and I've seen a LOT of aftermarket mufflers (esp w/singles & twins) fall apart in no time & need constant re-packing.

If I were gonna buy my own today, I'd go with FMF Q4s- I like to ride at night & don't like to annoy my neighbors with my comings & goings; I can also imagine what I must sound like to a cop doing speed traps- going 45 sounds like 90mph to him I'll bet

I second Geeks' assessment... btw what ever happened w/Kalifornia's "no more loud pipes" law from the Governator?

As of 2013 you can not alter the exhaust on a new motorcycle. Sucks

ive only had 1 vtwin a 01 suzuki TL1000R and it came with kerker boltons which where nice but im a HP junkie so i put a yoshi full race system on it and whala, ohhh my that sounds nice, yea it was a wee loud, but even at that level i was drounded out sitting at stop signs or lights when a harely with drag pipes pulled up next to me, i mean holy crap im glad i had ear plugs in which i just wear normally anyway.

one thing i was wondering about the akro's is are there db killer inserts with a spark arrestor, i plan on riding in MI on thier trails and forest roads but ill need the spark arrestor in the pipes. if they dont have those is there anybody who makes them or am i gonna need to weld a wee bit of mesh on a set of DB killers.

Akra/GPR Question

I'm wondering what the inside of the header looks like where it mounts to inlet on the muffler? Does it have an inner liner that goes inside the muffler inlet?

My Remus 2-1 setup would be hard to beat. Sounds good, goes well; result.

I had a 'Fuel' (UK) muffler on a VFR800 I had a few years ago. Excellent product at a good price; they are a hidden treasure.
