Thumbs up BOS Exhaust 'Desert Fox' Muffler for V-Strom 1000 2014+

This pipe looks cool



The new Desert Fox for the Suzuki DL 1000 V-Strom. -innovative design – typical BOS sound – with EC approval – mechanism adjustable sound controller make sure you are even by the sound.

BOS® rear silencers with EC type approval offer superb fit and excellent engineering.
Every exhaust system is tested on a dynamometer to ensure that it boosts performance and also produces the legendary BOS sound.
The superb design of this exhaust means that it blends perfectly with the lines of the bike.
Every single rear silencer is assembled by hand to ensure optimum quality and perfect fit.
All the developments and long years of experience gained in the racing scene are fed into the production process. If you remove the dB killer, you will then have an open racing silencer (not approved for road use under the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO)).

I hate it when people post gear like this - my hand keeps reaching for my wallet. Looks very neat. Does anyone know the weight of the OEM muffler?

That's less than Staintune charge for their mufflers on the old Vee in Australia, and Staintune are an Australian company. So...not hugely expensive all things considered.

For me it still looks too big, like the OEM. I like the Remus best so far

That is one cool looking muffler. In the end though, you can purchase a lot of aftermarket accessories for $1200. As cool as it looks, the practical side of my finances must prevail, darnit!

Thanks. I didn't feel like taking mine off to check it.

Initially, I was thinking the same thing. My first thoughts were I'd just keep the stock can since they are probably close to the same size. It does look like a nice exhaust overall, but I agree, I'd get one of the smaller, and more likely, less expensive ones. There will be more companies coming out with exhausts as the year progresses.
