    Does the muffler on the f800gs heat up to sun-like temps like the Adventure ktm model, with the catalytic converter still attatched; and is the converter in the muffler, or in the pipe on the Beemer?
    Thanks, Becket

    I've not experienced any heat issues with the pipe like I did with my G 650 X Challenge. The cat for the G 650 was in the muffler. It is not in the F800's muffler.

    The Cat is in the midpipe and easy to get rid of. Remus makes a great system. The low end really comes alive without it. It does get hot....
