Remus Revolution Ti on a Baja

Purchased Remus Revolution Titanium exh 2-2 from AdvRider Inmate "Clate"

Installed system, replacing the stock cat's, February 2015

Logged 3000 miles on this sytem today. I live at 8800' and over half of that 3k miles is single, 2trak and lots of forest roads and passes.

No noticeable power increase overall but definite torque increase. I can "tractor" under 2k rpm and full throttle recover or blip with no hesitation and clutch out. With Jesse's mounted and full fuel w/ reserve 1.75 can, it just plonks along.
The stock cans torque performance was significantly less and its weight perhaps +10lbs. I did not remap, nor was it a mfr. recommendation. Stock intake, no mod.

I read from another inmate input that the Baja runs cooler. I can confirm that it does run cooler at traffic speeds. Uphill trail in first still approaches the "fan" temperature quickly. The Remus cans are blister hot during operation but so were the cats.

$600 was the cost of this Remus Revolution Ti exhaust mod. It is well worth it considering that I could have spent 3 maybe 4 times that and would have had to remap and rotweiller" the intake.

I can't believe how already antiquated the 990 is now that the 1190 r's are around. That being said, I'm not changing.

My 990 is a keeper, it's awesome.

If you're in Buena Vista, let's go riding!

These bikes are keepers for sure.

Once you get into changing stuff up on them it gets kind of addictive

Best thing I did to my bike. And they sound absolutely badass. Clate was a pleasure to deal with, standup guy.

I run them without the inserts, also no remap. Stock runs great.
