Dude seriously you can't post something cool like that and say "no idea what brand it is". We need to know where you got it etc... details!

I love the stock stainless pipe. I think it looks great and sounds great. One thing tho, is the cool down time. I usually can't put the cover on the bike for a good hour. My old sport bike carbon fiber was always cool enough to touch. Is that the same with that Carbon fiber can?

2 1/8" from memory is the size of the intermediate pipe. Silencer fits over that. If what you have is around 2" a good muffler guy should be able to expand the muffler pipe to fit nice and snug.

I got it off eBay mate. Honestly, it has no branding on it at all. I thought it may have been branded "Screamin Demon" as I have a Stainless can from them lying in the shed somewhere. Its a good bit of kit but nothing on this pipe. It was a real surprise when i took it out of the box. The baffles are stainless too. Its a work of art and I have been trying to find out where it came from. It makes a lot of "high-end" cans etc look like cheap junk!! I have one more avenue to pursue. If I find out anything I will post it.

Thumb ahhh...nice

i was offered a new akra can for 350, but decided that it wasn't the best option as I quite like the industrial look of the stock can on the bike. I took off to the US for a week to see my woman, left the bike with a mate who took care of the exhaust for me. First off, header pipes off and cat cut out. Secondly, the can was removed and cut into 3 to have all of its unnecessary contents removed and a stainless perforated straight-through steel pipe fitted. It was TIG welded (look like factory welds) back up, refitted, and the bike feels totally different. The bike is so much fresher on acceleration and the note is much throatier than any aftermarket can i've heard to date. If you had seen all the crap stuffed in that can along with the cat, you'd wonder how the bike can breathe at all. The engine has been thanking me since. Highly recommend this as a way forward!

Beowulf

I'm almost certain the unidentified end can is a Beowulf carbon with the Beowulf decal removed and a Dakar decal added. See here:
http://www.beowulf-performance-products.com/. I've ordered a Black Stainless "stubby" 350mm having heard and read very good reports. There's a nice video page on their site if you want to hear the before and after results....Nice!!!

I think you may be correct timmo. Its a beautifully made can and its identical to the beowulf round carbon cans on their site. Sweet!!

Nice one Bigem,

that clears that up then, now we know for sure! I'm really looking forward to hooking mine up when it arrives and letting it rip! I'll post my thoughts on Beowulf build quality (and audio quality! ) when it arrives.

Timmo.

I picked up a mivv about 3 weeks ago. They do them in stainless and titanium too, but I couldn't resist the look. This is the suono version. It's narrower and so much lighter than the stock can. Hoping I can do more of a balanced pannier set up down the road. It's a lower, meaner (I think) tone than stock. They have video on their site and YouTube of dyno testing.

Who did you buy it from? The U.S. distributor does not even have BMW as a bike option and I couldn't find it on their site.

Lighter than stock and a bit slimmer. Comes w/ a quiet insert that seems quieter than stock. I will probably test w/ the db meter for giggles. It sounds great w/ and w/o the insert and revs freer than the stocker. There is a carbon fiber model as well. For the price, I'm very happy. I don't mean that to sound bad, I just can't get my head around paying $700 for an exhaust. This one was just under $400.
