Dakar sound of the old days

Hi people, what is it, that makes that typical sound of the old dark bikes?
Could it be the exhaust?
Seriously, would the headers be in stainless steel? What would one need to do to get this kind of sound? Raise the compression?

Just wondering actually.

Hi guys
What do You think about Pipercross filters? What are their life expectancy and period between cleanings in "civil" environments compared with K&N filters?

you can also get a second hand front from a 950 or 990 KTM adventure... there is a steering stem at rugged roads that make it fit your twin...
