Whatever you do , just don't buy the Remus. I know someone who has one on a GS12, and to me at least, whenever he passes me it sounds like a sloppy wet fart.

I'm bloody happy with the sound my new triple black makes without any changes, makes the old 1150 sound like shit. I don't think I need any extra power, it's already lifting the front in 3rd gear out of slow corner. I can't wait till its run in and I can open it up

+1 for the staintune system. Great local product! It did seem to let it spin up quicker after fitting. But i felt that the bike wasn't running as smooth. So did the power commander thing and this fixed it up with better fuel consumption.
If it wasnt for the P/commander i'd prefer the stock setup. Dynotuned the setup and made as good if not better power with the restricter in compared to it out.
98.11hp & 78.38ft-lbs without restricter. 97.62hp & 82.73ft/lbs with restricter. The latter was 5c cooler and 20% difference in humidity to be fair, so no restricter might have a small edge.
I like the restricter out but when 2up cant get starcomm to stop picking up pipe noise from pillions hat. Also 2 up we get exhaust gasses hanging around because of my huge aeroflow windscreen. Restricter mostly used now.

I found this on another forum, some good proven info on slip ons and air filter changes.

Know of a couple of lads over West that recently got them. They are happy with the quality and also the service/delivery, fitted no problem and initial ride feedback was positive. Will have a yarn with them over the weekend and see how they feel about them now.

I know this post is a bit old, but thanks for all the feedback and just to let you know that I bought the GPR slip on and fitted it. Took me less than an hour, and I am very impressed so far. All stainless steel, fits perfectly and provided with two types of end mufflers, thus giving you 3 sound options - soft purr, impressive snap crackle pop and no muffler is a serious growl. Also, bought on eBay and arrived 5 days later from Italy - well packaged and labelled. An excellent investment for $300.
