Another R1150GS Tailpipe

Inspired by pbansen post on a R1150GS tailpipe extension I have made an easily removable version since i did not like the look of the extension with the bags off which is when I am not travelling.



I purchased the same tailpipe that pbansen recommended Napa part number 735-1645. Placed it in the end of the muffler and marked it for cutting about 3 inches from the non flared end.






I then welded the small piece into the end of the muffler and painted it with barbeque paint.




Now the flared end of the extension can be slipped on and off when needed.



I made a cardboard template for a tab, cut one out of steel and welded it to the extension.




Fitted the extension and drilled a hole in the tab for a bolt at an existing hole in the Jesse bag frame.




Bag in place and end of extension trimmed to length.

I am confused on what it is you are accomplishing with this extension?

Clearing the Jesse bags. At present the exhaust heats up the left bag and discolors it.

Nice welding job! No birdshit . LOVE the hard-mounted beer bottle opener!

So, does this make the bike sound different? Can you shoot potatoes out of it when a cager gets too close behind you? I think that would be cool.

I've been shopping for new side cases and this was something that concerned me; hate to roast the stuff in the bag, not so concerned about discoloration.

Doesn't really get that hot but wouldn't put a lap top or a good bottle of scotch in there.

Nice weld.
What was your reason for not using a stub pipe like other 1150 riders have done, and eliminate the "secondary" muffler all together?

Dang that kinda sucks, I have the bmw aluminum bags, haven't noticed any discoloration and haven't checked if it gets hot. I will be more aware of it though
