Here's the Leo Vince Carbon (without sticker) from earlier in this thread.
Just for comparison. And I like posting pictures.







*EDIT* D'oh!! new page. Damn. And I love that military looking Mivv. It looks like you could launch a grenade out of it!

Thanks
I got it from the good folks at PJ's Parts (pjsparts.com). You'll have to call them or email to sales@pjsparts.com. Their site isn't updated yet with all the mivv pipes they can get.

I tracked them down as a mivv dealer and just dropped them a note about the new BMW pipes. We were off and running from there.

New Beowulf fitted

Fitted the Beowulf Oval Black Stainless stubby. Easy to fit, looks great (I think) especially with the Trax boxes, and it sounds absolutely wicked even with the baffle in . Best of all, they're great value. What's not to like?

Send an inquiry on PJ parts, he responded immediately to mine and he knows his site needs to be updated.

Thanks for the kind words rd... We do need to get the updates on the site, it's amazing how much time it takes to get products built and updated!

That pipe (in the full Carbon) is $602, The stainless version with Carbon ends caps is $498

So I just got my GS last week. Getting all the "got to have's" trickling in.

Last ride put the bike away in the garage and happen to go back out about a half hour later and brushed against the pipe. I was pretty surprised how warm it still was. I'm about to order Jesse's for panniers and I'm concerned there going to bake whatevers in there.

Are these aftermarket pipes getting as hot? Holding the heat as long?

Lovin' that Beowulf!

My Leo Vince Carbon doesn't get hot at all. you can touch it immediately.
In fact you can hold your open palm to it as soon as you shut the bike off.

i really like the STOCK rumbling exhaust tone on my 800gs. but will like to change for a lighter system(muffler) in the future for performance sake.

any exhuast out there that gives a deeper sounding 'grumbling' tune? the arkas,remus,scorpion,leovince sounds a little wierd.. more hollow tone to me..

Akrapovic Mod

Not sure if I'm alone here, but I've got the Akrapovic can om my 800 and consider it too quiet with the baffles in and too loud with them out. As a result I took to the baffle with drill and file in hand and gradually drilled it out and cut bits off untill I reached a mid way point between the 2 extremes....Yeah I know I should post a sound clip.

What's nice is that at tick over and low revs it just burbles...great for riding through towns, but on hard acceleration it barks like the baffles are removed.

Remus Header compatibility

Gents, for those of you who have installed the Remus headers on the F800GS - have any of you also installed the large BMW bash plate and or the Touratech engine guards? Are they compatible?

The Two Brothers M2 for the F800GS. It's only $315 from Starcycle.com. I've had great luck with Two Brothers stuff. Had their M7 canister on my KLR650.
