Crud,

The baffel is about 2 inches long and makes no diference to the volume, so I took it out.

Thats good to know. My dealer just just called me and said mine did not come with the baffle, but it did have a spark arrestor. I guess I wont order the baffle if you found that it makes no difference to the volume of the pipe.

I have already ordered a Leovince from same shop as Maxkool did.

I am leaving to Morocco december 1st so i hope i can try it there.... at pleasure.

My only concerns are about which insert should i mount (legal or racing) and if spark arrestor is mandatory in Europe.

I have fitted the legal insert with the spark arrester. With this setup it's not overly loud so the music/noise from the exhaust won't tire you out. Although the spark arrester seems to be a typical US thing, I can understand the idea behind it.

Remus added some material that should pass as a spark arrestor to their original baffle. I found even this set up to be far too loud. Hopefully you will have access to a welder who can add some more baffling to the spark arrestor. I personally think the bike is far to loud with the baffle, I don't know how you can use this pipe without a baffle, it is painfully loud.

so, i´ll take out the spark arrestor then.

MAxKool, sorry to bother you with my questions, bt i am so excited.

By the way, did you find any real data about how much power does the leovince adds to the bike in comparison with stock exahust???

Question

Hey Jim,

I see you own both a X Challange and a KTM 640 Adv. Could you please comment on how you compare both?

Sorry for the hijack....

Regards,
Mane

I like them both very much. The Adventure is my long distance Adventure touring bike because of the 7 gal. gas tank and availibility of luggage options. 13K miles in 15 months (most off road) without a problem. I have upgraded the carburator, exhaust and suspension on the KTM.

The 650X has become my day/weekend fun bike just because it is fun to ride and very competent. I added the Remus exhaust and some TT parts to the BMW. I am quite happy with both bikes.

There doesn't seem to be much in it except at the top end! And of course it helps the bike run cooler.

I think most of it is psychological anyway with exhausts (but don't tell anyone ok)

If I were an exhaust manufacturer I would always print the graph with the most hp. Most probably the one with the straight through baffle. There aren't many people who look at the gains at low rpm anyway.
