when I had my gsxr I had a remus can on it that was loud nobody complained but alot of people stop talking to us on the street which didn't bother me so much but hassle for her indoors when she goes up the school

Yeah, whenever I've put new pipes on my bikes I try not to get silly-loud ones, but loud enough to make me grin.

At the end of the day I like my neighbours and respect the fact that they might not love the sound of an open-pipes V-twin!

When I leave each morning, I do my best to start and go, not sit around revving the nuts of my bike and if I leave early, I push it  the 10 meters to the end of the road.

Little things but keeps everyone happy.

They're the 380mm ones

I think the longer ones would look a bit too long

Stinkerbill, do you have the kit to make a Youtube vid so we can all see and hear?

They sound great.  :thumb:

 I looked at their web site, they don't list an exhaust for the 650 but I might still give them a call when the time comes.  Who knows, if there is enough interest they might add it to their range.

Ah, thanks Admin!

(I didn't even think to look for a YouTube button!)


Oh and that's with the baffles in - plenty loud enough without being offensive

Followed this review with interest, so imagine my delight when I stumbled across the Beowolf stand at the BMF today and picked up a pair for £220!!!!

Wow! £220's too good to argue with!

AS for for fuel efficiency... I have no idea. To be honest it's not something I've ever even considered worrying about when buying new exhausts!

And no, I've not done any re-mapping. I'm sure it'd help, but having not done it hasn't really affected the bike at all.
