Dual exhaust for DL650

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

You could put a tool tube to balance out the looks from the back, and maybe a matching exhaust tip. But two seperate pipes won't gain you anything other than more weight, and more money spent to buy them. Why not just buy a 1000 if that's what you want? It's the same frame, wheels, and just about 50 pounds heavier, plus it has two pipes. Cheers--BB

why

why would anyone take the duals off there 1000 they look and sound so amazing? why do i want a 650 because thats all i really need and insurance will be cheaper. I still only have my m2 and last year i rode a yamaha v star 1100 and it was a 1200 hundred a year.right now im riding a 81 honda cb 650 and paying 530.00 a year.

Thumbs down yes crazy

Yup welcome to insurance in canada.we are taxed to death and insured to death. The insurance on my v star for 1200 was only for liability too i believe.I shopped around too and they where the cheapest.

Adding dual mufflers to anything is possible.
The question is why? You don't really need to. Almost every dual or quad muffler bike I see has been converted to single-muffler.
If you want to make more noise, just drill some holes in the existing muffler; doubling the mufflers will theoretically half the noise.
If you really must have dual exhaust, it can be fabricated. I wouldn't bother connecting the two pipes though.

Put on a dummy left muffler. There is a science to exhaust design, and your local muffler welder has no idea. Duals on a V8 engine often work worse than a properly designed single. Changing the exhaust on a 10,000 rpm 90 V2 will take some scientific calculation to avoid hurting the hot exhaust gas flow. Here's more: Burns Stainless LLC - Exhaust Theory

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

Talking

Put on a dummy left muffler, then place a speaker inside of it, connected to an amp hidden somewhere under the seat, make a recording of a V-Rod with straight pipes, play it back on a continuous loop, eventually you could get the timing down and sync your throttle hand movements with the revs of the recording.
