    +1 on the Holan's. (edit: Beowulf, Holan crash bars, yes I am an idiot, see sig). Nice deep growl with or without the baffle. W/O baffle sounds better though. Was initially looking at Leo Vince, but came across the Holan's. Price is cheaper than website due to VAT being removed for foreign orders. Overall weight saving over original was just under 2.6kg for my set up. Pictured is oval ti stubby.

    So which combination do you have? I can't seem to select the Carbon Fiber end cap no matter what I do on their website

    Mind if I ask how you went about importing to Aus from the UK? Did you just go straight through the website? How much for the pipe, and the postage? I'm wanting to do the same, but with the black Carbon look.

    Ordered directly from website. Pipe was 195 pounds less VAT(gst) and postage was 40 pounds. Need physical address as a courier is used, so no PO boxes.

    I also ordered the rad guard for 45 pounds less VAT.

    Full price was charged then the VAT was credited back (don't know why they did it this way)

    Mine delivered was $480Aus all up for pipe and rad guard. Exchange rate is better now though.

    Is the "Beowulf" on the side a sticker or is it permanent?

    I stacked recently and insurance gave me $800+ for the stock can. I'm planning on replacing it with an aftermarket muffler, but don't want something that looks like it belongs on a lowered RR with LED strips, nor do I want something that's much louder than stock (preferably no louder). Right now I'm leaning toward the Leo Vince...with the insert installed, of course.

    Thoughts?

    I just ordered the Leo Vince pipe. According to the people at Leo Vince, with the dB killer in it's still a bit louder than stock. With the dB killer out it's considerably louder than stock. This is true, however, with most aftermarket exhaust pipes. They're all going to be a bit louder than stock even with the dB killer in. That said, a lot of people claim that Akrapovic is really close to stock volume with the insert in.

    I'd say the Scorpion (?) that came with my Metal Mule system is also lower volume than stock. Less of a rumble and more of the individual cylinder firing sound. More like a single when running I guess is how I'd say it. I didn't notice a change in fuel consimption.

    Had some time on my hands. Now all I need is one to permanently mount up.

    I'm not really interested if my F800GS sounds louder or deeper or has a few more horsepower as a result of adding an after-market exhaust. The real reason I am interested is because of the only real complaint I have about the bike (which is superb in every other respect), and that is the amount of back-pressure when I let off the throttle. I thought it would be less pronounced after a few thousand miles, but I am still annoyed by the feeling that reminds me of the compression release I used have on an old 2-stroke motocross bike. It's very annoying at low speeds off road when I don't want to feather the clutch.

    Does anyone else notice this? I figured if I opened up the air intake and the exhaust it would help, but that's just a theory. Any thoughts? :scratch

    The F800GS is a twin. My track bike is the same thing. Both bikes have an imense amount of engine braking. Its by design. Also the firing order of ours probably makes it more intense since both cyl fire together. Effectively making it a big single.

    The german motorcycle magazine "enduro" did an interesting test of a couple of interesting f 800 gs exhausts. The only exhaust with an improvement of two ps and about the same in newtonmeter was the leovince.

    Also it is one of the cheapest available replacement exhausts in europe. Its light too.

    Nevertheless i like the "look" of the original very much.:D
