You may be using a different style, in which your black text may look just fine. If somebody else is using ADV 2.0, your text is black on grey, so not very legible. In "Fresh" style, your text is just fine.

So it sounds like everyone is saying just replace the muffler. I thought with the price of the Remus full system it would make sense but I guess I'll go with the majority on this one. :)

Thx for all the input guys!

If you have money to burn then go ahead and replace the entire exhaust. The return on investment will be with the muffler.

I'm not so much worried about spending the cash as I am in whether a full system will effect reliability. As in will the slight increase in power burn out components sooner? Thoughts on the reliability aspect?

The reliability of the gas tank and fender NOT melting should be just enough to convince you.

I imagine NOT having a thermonuclear reactor bolted to your bike will be a lot less likely to burn out components and ADD to reliability.

The increase in heat sure burns things out sooner. Look at it this way; Less weight on the rear end will make the rear tire last longer

Right on thx for all the feed back guys! I imagine by putting on a slip on opposed to replacing the entire exhaust system (like I originally planned) the same rules apply for removing the SAS. Am I correct?

IMO, the only reason to remove the SAS is if you are putting on a Safari tank, or the RR tanks. Other than that, there isn't much sense in trying to out think a team of Austrian Engineers.

who installed the SAS and Charcoal canister to comply with USA emmissions. Both systems can come off the bike with minimal impact.

I am going to be installing the Evo 2 RR tanks and fairings (head lamp, etc.) so now I'm a bit confused. I thought folks were getting rid of the SAS system when they upgraded the exhaust due to catalytic converter no longer being an issue. This is the first I've heard of the RR tanks affecting the SAS system. What's the connection there?
