Agree, that pipe will have to go. Not just because it is so big, but to give the big-twin some personality :mrgreen:I hope some are available soon cuz this stock can is frikkin HUGE and WAY too quiet for my taste. Can't wait for something smaller and a little louder.

REMUS EXHAUST SHOWS THEIR NEW OKAMI EXHAUST FOR V-STROM 1000 2014 | A Pair of Stroms
Yoshi have teased us with a pipe, but as yet no official release:
Couldn't agree with you more :thumbup::thumbup:A pair of those looked good on my 'Busa, but it looks crap on the Vstrom. Best I've seen so far is the Akraprovic available for the BMW GS. I reckon that style of can suits the Vstrom well.
I think the top of the can is going to be the same on all pipes because that is the mounting point. So rack will be needed for soft luggage.The thing that bothers me the most about the stock exhaust "suitcase" is the limitation it is making on installing saddlebags. None of the larger soft stuff, like the Cortech bags, will fit because the muffler extends too high. I hope someone makes a can that will be angled a little lower so that we can get soft saddle bags to fit. I know they have the sport bike bags but they don't hold much.
