Leo Vince LV-One EVO II Slip-On Exhaust BMW G650GS 2011-2012

The removal of my factory pipe and install of the leo vince pipe went smoother than expected. The pipe looks and sounds great ( IMO ). The throttle is smoother and more responsive with the new pipe, other than that no HP gains have been noticed.

Thanks again to Pyoungbl and Seth, your input really helped with removal of the factory pipe..

A dab of bule locktite on the clamp holding the muffler on....highly recommended. If you lose that bolt the muffler is just hanging from the pipe.

You got two out of three things that account for the extra ten bhp.
They also went with hotter cams.
Btw, those 10 extra bhp are at the crank.
So figure about an extra 8 bhp at the rear wheel.

Would somebody measure the diameter and length of their oem exhaust for me, please?
Thanks.

Just did a quick measure of the right side, 14" x 5". By no means is this a precise measurement, just held up the tape as I walked through the garage.

Wheels

Has anyone put a 21" wheel on the front yet? I'm looking at ordering two new Excel rims 17 rear with a 21 front much like the sertao. Share the process if you have... I'm wondering about the front fork adjustment if any or anything else?

Thanks

You'll need to change your forks and shock. Dakar/Sertao tubes are longer.

You'll also need a spacer on the fork brace to lift it a bit depending on your tire choice.

I just did a Dakar conversion on my GF's bike but changed out forks/shock/front tire

Thanks,

Was the Dakar conversion on the F650GS single or the G?

I just talked to Touratech US who sells a set of Excel rims for the G650GS and F650 single with a 21" front and they said that the lower part of the forks are the same on the G650GS and the Sertao... only the upper part and the springs are longer so I would only need the spacer on the fork brace...

Oil Filter

Need some advice on where to purchase reasonably priced oil filter for my G 650GS, 2011. A friend said he purchased one for his 1200GS at Wal-Mart.

He said he found that info on ADVRider - but I'm not having similar luck.

Any advice out there?

Reasonably priced? If you are looking for something in the $3 range you might find a Fram cross reference but I'd stay away from their filters. Prof over at www.f650.com was clearing out a stock of stuff that included a good price on oil filters. I picked up a couple of filters along with sprockets and chain.

Just my .02...filters aren't somewhere I shop by price. Yes, I look for the best price for the filter I deem best for my use, but I'd recommend against just buying the cheapest filter you can find.

It was a F-single but it's the same as the G. Yes, if you can get upper fork tubes from a Dakar you can just swap them in. It may be cheaper to just buy a set of used forks depending on price. And I didn't need a spacer but if I went with a knobbier tire on it like a 606 I would definately need one. All in all the swap was easy but I took the rear into the shop to have them do it as it was kicking my arse.

There's a 21" wheel , rear shock and forks for sale on ebay.
