after market exhaust?

Any one added an after market exhaust with the givi side bags. I was wondering if u had to reroute anything or would it just fit. If u did what did u buy? I have a 05/650.

I just put teh Remus Carbons on my 1000. Simple bolt on installation. Went with carbon, as they are supposed to transfer less heat., so was less like;y to affect my Givi bags. They sound awsome, and radiate a minimal amount of heat. You can actually lay your hand on them after a 3 hour ride. There are many excellent aftermarket exhausts out there.

I have Givi luggage and a Scorpion exhaust. It is pretty easy. I even mounted mine with the luggage racks already mounted.
