    Mine came with the cf remus cans.

    Original size is here for more detail.
    When I wanted a refill because they were getting real loud, we discovered there's kind of a sock inside, to protect the cf from burning through. No refill possible without a Remus package, which they don't provide AFAIK. Then I found out a Bos silencer is the same size, so now they're all stainless.
    They guy I turned to for the refill, DAM exhausts, told me his cf silencers are stainless inside, with a cf sleeve.

    Cool looking bike you got there. :thumb

    Later I installed the 2 - 1 so I could add more fuel and removed the baffle from the single can. I also made a slightly thicker rubber ring that goes between the clamp and pipe as the stock one was a bit loose and would start to fall out.

    I ride mostly on the dirt and haven't had a problem with the pipe except for a little swelling around the clamp.

    I now have the GPR exhaust on the bike.

    It's the Baja Designs 1.5 gallon (about 6.5 ltr) tank that is made to fit the earlier model KTM EXC's.

    I can't link the thread I did about the install of the tank but I can give it a bump if need more info.

    I installed one of these on my 950 as well. Works like a charm.
