Well, is not everything about power, there are also sensations as you said.

I remember on my old XR600, when took out out the insert from the muffler , sensations were quite different than with it mounted. Maybe power increase was not so great but i felt like the engine was breathing better so throttle response was better on any circumstances.

Maybe this is what you feel with your leovince installed.........on your butt, as you said

Where is the catalytic converter located on the bike? In the stock exhaust cannister, or ??

Steve: Did you call your Aussie mates at Staintune to ask them if they are going to produce one for the X C?

Maate!! I even offered them my bike to get it sorted.. At the time they were just too busy on other projects. Shame really because they missed out with this one. And yea, the CC is in the stock can... That's why it runs so HOT!

I figured that much.. that's why I burned my hand on it yesterday

If Staintune makes one for it, that's the one I'd get.

I'm reading your evaluations with special attention to sound levels. Looking for recommendations for a can that's as quiet as stock, or nearly as quiet as stock.

I'll chase up Staintune tomorrow GB... I'll be riding down to their neck of the woods next week with a couple of mates and with two of us on the 650, so might pop in and see what they are up to.

There are 4 inserts.

2 long ones (with a slight bend in the pipe)
2 shorter straight ones


One of each has a slightly shorter tailpiece that is sticking out. Those are to be used with the spark arrester.

The other two are the Euro inserts, the longer one is the legal insert, and the shorter one is the FIM loud insert.

Thanks Max Kool,

I ve done a small off road today to try it.....................It rained this week so the ground was as i like it, good grip with my motocross 110 tire,

by the way now i ´ve mounted mousse on both cause next week i´ll be on Morocco´s desert

Well, let´s talk abour G650X ch with leovince X3 on it............this is exactly what i wanted and what i was missing on the bike with that horrible stock muffler. Now i have throttle immediate response when i need it, i can jump easier small obstacles, etc...

When there is an open space to squeeze throttle, oh man, now this remains me my former XR650.

I guess it came the EURO instert on, because noise is very affordable. This weekend i´ll put the other on the backpack and i´ll try both so i can compare.
Maybe in Morocco´s desert noise is not somethin to be worried about......

The two short ones are into a bag, as well as a long one with no shorter tailpiece and the spark arrestor.

I see no spark arrestor through muffler´s hole so i assume it came with a long one with the shorter tailpiece, with no spark arrestor.

So i am mounting now de EURO insert. and bike´s behavior improved a lot ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

Maxkool, do you think it is worth to try the FIM short one??????
did you try it??? How did you feel it???

Bluhduh

I inserted the short one, fired up the bike and immediately removed it.

I found it too loud to be socially acceptable.

OK, so then you do not know how bike behaves with it.......

I´ll carry it with me and i´ll try in the middle of nowhere, where nobody but me could hear it

I´ll let you know when i do so , and i´ll write on my sensations then.

Have you already installed the TT cover for not to burn your pants???

Talking

I wonder if i can adapt one of this. It is for the GS/HP2, but It would be easy to anchor it and maybe to fold it a bit.

Left exhaust manifold cover
BMW R 1200 GS/Adventure/HP2
Finally, no more scuffed boot soles.
Sturdy exhaust manifold cover for the left side of the R1200GS/HP2. It covers part of any tarnished manifold and also protects the boots. The manifold cover is made of laser cut, anodised aluminium.
