Exhaust Question

Know this question has been asked many times. Havin a hard time doin a search. Would lıke a deaper thoatıer sound. Found many topics about two brothers. Are these the ones im lookin for? Know that "the best" ıs a matter of oppinıon. Just think my dl1000 sounds kinda mild. Also any advice on the best place to get them. im limited to online shopping only since im overseas. Links would be greatly appreciated.

Best Muffler

Most of the bikers that buy the 2-bros like them for a while then get tired of the sound (too loud - over 100 db). Remus (made in Austria) has a good set of economical cans that are in the mid-90's db range. Most Stromers that have played with cans like Staintune (lower 90's db)- but they are also the most expensive ($800 US). They definitely have the best fit and quality - with a removable baffle they are the best of both worlds. You won't have to repack Staintunes - you will have to repack almost all the others. I've purchased both the Remus and Staintune for the Vstrom. I like them both but the Staintune is the sharpest. I purchased 2-bros for a BMW and took them off the same day I put them on. Since Staintunes are from Australia and Remus are from Austria - you would be better off searching for distributors in Europe. Hope that helps. Paul

I have Remus Gran Prix cans on my '03 DL1000. I love them. They have a nice mellow sound and it doesn't intrude on me at hiway speeds or when riding for hours. They will bark authoritatively if you blip the throttle. I bought them through the US distributor in California - Max Moto. I had the bike dyno'd before and after adding the cans, and they did produce more horsepower and torque (in the vicinity of 10%). They do not ever require repacking. I did not modify the FI, and I see no need to. I highly recommend these.

I actually liked the Remus cans on my V-Strom so much that I also put a Remus can on my Burgman 650. That one was more of a project, because it was a different model that came with a removeable baffle. It was too quiet with the baffle in - louder than a straight pipe Harley with the baffle out. I ended up modifying the baffle myself to produce a nice sound level. But once I got that straightened out, I like that can too. Max Moto was easy to reach by phone, and helpful, while I was working on that installation. I was the first person in the USA to install the Remus can for the Burgman 650. They gave me a nice discount for being a "tester". I did have to provide email feedback and some pics - no big deal for a discount that was about $100 as I recall.

In both deals, the Max Moto price included shipping too.

Terry - yes - I still have a set of the Titanium Remus cans - I'm going to hold on to them for now. I do have the original Vstrom cans that I'd love to get rid of...

You can't duplicate the Harley sound with a V-Strom, particularly at idle. The pistons on a Harley move up and down together, while the pistons on a Strom alternate in movement. (360 degree crank vs 180 degree crank.) This makes a big difference in the sound patterns produced. The pipes most Harley guys use are crap - very harsh sound IMHO. The Remus Gran Prix pipes are straight through pipes, but the inner wall is lined with a honeycomb sort of baffle. They produce a very mellow sound, as opposed to the harsh blat of the typical Harley pipe. To my ear, the sound of a Remus equipped DL1000 is about as nice as it gets.
