remus exhaust and headers

I just upgraded new exhaust and headers. Remus Revolution can and the headers. It has been wet and my back tire breaks loose everytime I crack the throttle. I want to feel the difference.
Does anyone have any dyno charts on the remus and r1200gs combo. I see a lot of different opinions out there but would like to see some raw data. I am too cheap for my own tests.

Here's a thread on the full Remus install on an R1200 that was on the BMW Sport Touring Forums: http://bmwsporttouring.com/ubbthread...t/9/vc/1/nt/10. It includes Dyno graphs that show mid-range and top-end performance gains. Smart thread.

There's a basic HP dyno chart on Nippy Norman's site....

Thumbs up

Just put the Remus Hexacone on my bike. Honestly I don't need a graph to tell if I like it better than the OEM... if DOES feel more responsive; it sounds great (like an old MG car combined with a single propellor aircraft, and a dash of Ducati thrown in), and it's the best after market muff out there!

Remus Exhaust

Did you repalce the full exhaust, or just the muffler?

I am planning to install a Remus too, and cant decide is I want to replace the whole system or just the can.

It depends on why you're doing it. If it's just for looks, sound and a bit of weight saving, fit the can. However, if you're looking for a performance gain, you need to fit the whole system, or even just the headers. It's getting rid of the cat' that makes the big difference.

Remus Hexacone - dynojet graph

Hi - I am new to the forum. Had my 1200GS since mid-2005 bought 2nd hand at 11 months old, 6500 miles. The bike is standard. Recently decided to get the suspension set and found the result made the bike so much better. The down side to this is it has me on a road to trying to improve the performance which costs!. I fitted the Remus Hexacone can then got it run on the Dynojet kit, I am attaching the graph which the DynoJet guy said is pretty normal for the bike. Next plan is to put on the Wunderlich Air Charger with K&N filter before getting it tested again. From there is getting the Power Commander fitted and then tested again. Then the Ohlins...
