I will testride by the end of this week the OEM muffler from which the internals are changed (by Stephan Scheffelmeier). It 'should' sound much better, have a little more on top. From the outside it looks like 100% original.
Benefits of the OEM (for me) are: it's a reflektionmuffler (no burning wool to change) + quality of manufacturing + fits like a glove.
The extra weight is a minus.

Had the internals changed on mine too and pretty happy with the drop in heat from the muffler and also the amount of compression braking on deceleration. Increased responsiveness also making it a lot better bike to ride. Cat is still in it too. Would be nice if it was lighter though.

I glued a small strip of inner tube on the inside of the bottom of the mount to prevent the looseness and rattling. I put a $10 Zagg invisibleShield screen protector on it, and I use a pair of really strong rubber O-rings from my local Ace Hardware store as a safety backup just above the display area. Something like these in general (stock photo), and my GPS is going nowhere... here is the only pic I could find:




If you want a more serious GPS 60 holder and a much more protective one, this one that Stovebolt sells seems to get good reviews.

1. Cut
2. Changing internals
3. Weld

1 = easy
2 = ? (stefan did the trial and error...)
3 = on stephans changed muffler you cannot see that it had ever been opened up (but he's a master welder too)

Is It possible that you shoot a little video of your GPR exhaust so we can better estimate the sound It makes?

These guys did mine and do a lot of new bikes from the Husky, KTM and Jap dealers located around them at Springwood. I know Full Throttle Husky use them to do the TE630 pipes from new.

They didn't cut my outer casing but went in through the exit pipe at the rear by cutting out the restrictor and then somehow removing more bits inside and modifying parts and welding them in. Looked a bit like making one of those ships in a bottle but works well, still has the cat in it.

Gunslinger,
Did you send your exhaust to Stefan?
I can't see sending it over seas.. Am I missing something?
Thanks,
Jeff

Stephan's muffler is now somewhere between Germany and Flanders. Hope I get it today so I'll have the whole weekend to test it out, and if OK to let modify by him my own OEM muffler.
I know from Stephan the cat's still in (severe German TUV rules), but eventually will ask if its possible to remove the cat (if this means more flow with the benefit of less heat).

Just got mal von Stephan. The muffler is still in Germany, in constant search of improving his products, he re-openend the muffler to do some more internal work.
So it could take 2 more weeks before I receive it (knowing he will test his own products).
Never zufrieden those Germans

I had the same problem, reshaped the seat dropped the forks a bit and bought army boots with a thick sole! All together they made just enough difference.
