Wings Exhaust
 
I just picked up a pair of Wings Exhaust for my 2012 KTM 990 Adventure. Any opinion on the large or small db killers. Any tuning or back fire issues with either one? I appreciate any input.

My WINGS came with three DB killers w/ new: the medium w/ spark arrestor in, pull those and have the nozzle only, and a set of small in the box. I've never ran anything but what came set up because I like the way they sound and work(plus, I need the spark arrestors for forest work).

I only had 1 DB Killer. It sounds awesome though...actually quieter than stocker...from whence can one obtain said alternate DB killers? Would like a bit more pop out of her.

I have wings installed on my 950 thought it was a little to load so installed in inserts and it was too quite so cut the pipe on the insert back to the mounting pipe so i'm only really reducing the outlet size and not trying to force the exhaust through the 100mm of pipe of the orignal insert, works well very nice note

Thanks
 
I'll go with the already installed large db killers as i'm trying to add a little bark to this bike.

With a two into one system would it be too restrictive with a DB killer in?

You have to play around with it but I like the stock DB inserts the best. I've gone through the exercise of trying each out for a week or more and I always come back to those. They sound good too :evil

Make sure before you put em on get comfortable with TuneECU or set up some dyno time, most likely it won't run very well if you just throw em on without a new map. I like Wayne Tripp's Acro map, but try some different one's and see what works for you, each bike has it's own set of rules.

I appreciate the feedback. I was under the impression based reading comments form others that have installed wings that a dyno or remapping wasn't required. Where would I find Waynes Tripps Acro Map? Any help would be appreciate. Thanks

Backfire with wings
 
Recently installed Wings on my 08 990. Love the sound and runs great (small db killers). I do notice more off throttle backfire, I am not sure if it is more than with stock cans or just louder. But performance does not seem to have changed at all. It is nice to be free of the leg incinerators.

Here is the TuneECU KTM map list that made the site

The powerTripp Acro map I'm using is for a 2010 so it may not work with your year... Not sure exactly what the difference in years would make if they are all fuel injected, but I'm still learning. I've also heard you can try SMT maps, since the engines are the same(?), but I thought the cams were different so I've never tried a SMT map

I have Wings on my 950SE. Both inserts (small and large) sound identical to me. They are only a millimeter or two different in diameter. It only takes one allen key and 2 minutes to swap them both out and test for yourself. Good luck.

I've been running Wings on my 990, I did not remap and the bike runs just fine. Not an issue IMHO.

Just one tip on changing out the inserts. My Wings have the kevlar end caps and if you drop one in there it's a bitch to retrieve since the capscrews are stainless steel and therefore non-magnetic. I replaced mine with standard black steel capscrews and can now get them out easily with a magnet. FWIW.

I have the Wings on my 950SE (and Husaberg 570:D), and run the more restrictive baffle in both.

Not too loud, but still healthy sounding. :clap

Of course, the 950 is carbed, so I can't help you in that area.

Awesome, Thanks
