I think "FUEL" which is a UK brand are pretty quiet.

I would have thought that if you get any can with a removable baffle, you could probably make a larger baffle to reduce the sound some more? Worth experimenting for the cost of a bit of pipe, perhaps :)

Don't install the spark arrestor if you are riding highway speeds (>5000rpm). The filling at the end of the FMF can will melt away and clog up the sparke arrestor. DAMHIK

Hi there,

In regards to these 2 into 1 exhaust systems, I'm trying to organise parts to get the dealer to put one on to a 2010 Adventure in the UK that I've just bought. I've ordered a 2 into 1 adaptor from a company called "Adventure Spec" http://www.adventure-spec.com/shop/k.../prod_224.html

So my question is when I order an after market muffler, do I also need to buy link pipes? Or do the OEM ones work? Say for example if I choose a Remus single can/muffler, do I also need extra link pipes to 'marry' them or is the 2 into 1 adaptor, original link pipes and aftermarket muffler enough.

Also anyone in the UK have any suggestions for a place to source a decent after market Remus muffler/exhaust?

Thanks in advance!

Dave

I got the Wings exhaust and it is a stout bit of kit. You get all you need to mount it to your 2-1 pipe. His email is:

Is this true if you are using a Uni pre-filter?

My jetting is stock except for needles in 3rd position and mixture screw 1 1/2 turns out (so 155/160m and 42p). Was running great, 0-4000'. After installing the 2:1 when I started it on the stand it was bogging.

I just did the valves and pulled the carbs apart to get above specs (I'd never opened them up before, previous owner made the clip change).

Was just curious as I added the pre-filter 2 years ago and bike still ran well after. Hence curiosity on whether the combo of pre-filter and 2:1 changes things?

my mods went this this order so I didn't see any issues.

1) stock to twin FMF pipes. -No jet changes required.

2) Uni prefilter - Ran really rich, Installed Head2Wind jet kit. All better.

3) Built 2-1 pipe and installed w/ single FMF pipe. Ran no different, just felt more bottom end torque.

4) Blew up 2 FMF Alum pipes- Swapped in a Remus TI , No issues since.

I did not do any Dyno checks along the way, but felt no difference in performance or power along the way.

Last Sept I put the 950 back on the Dyno at 70,000 miles. I got 86 Rear wheel HP, same as it did when I did #2 mod after jetting and 30,000 miles.

5) Oct to Now-
I'm running an open air filter system b/c I can't fit an air box. (AWD mod) I went back to a richer STOCK jetting. No dyno A/F checks done, but it felt OK on the 5000 mile trip to Moab and back to Milwaukee.


Does that clear it up????

I should learn to leave things STOCK.

My uni filter upgrade was easy with the Head2wind jet kit, no issues runs great. My winter project was installing the Cjracer 2 to 1 and a Remus Ti exhaust. Looks fantastic sounds great and made all kinds of necessary room on the other side. I did have to remove my inner fender / splash guard to get the stock "y" pipe out but 4 bolts later it was easy.

Pics to prove it...

Loss of heat and Weight is a great thing. Be sure to use a High quality silencer w/ a 2-1 as you are running more heat and pressure through it. I've had a couple ALUM silencers fail on me, before I new more about the Remus silencers, but my TI Remus is still going strong after many miles. I have about 50,000 on our 2-1 system and about 30,000 on my TI Remus.
Hey CJ
with all these inmates running Remu Ti pipes, what are the chances of supplying us wth USDA approved inserts? I know you are way busy but it looks like there is a market. Ill volunteer to test the proto.
Steve
