Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I see that Maurice had a problem with his black Remus. Anybody else had this problem?
Also looking into the Carbon Lazer Can. Anybody tried that one?
How is heat with these slip-on`s? Will they fry my Givi-bags?

I have the all carbon Remus Hexacone Trond, and it stays relatively cool to the touch compared to titanium. I have the BMW system cases and heat was never a problem, even when I had titanium canisters. I think the Laser Stealth carbon can is the most beautiful, and heat shouldn't be an issue if you have a reasonable amount of clearance to the bags. When I travel, I put more heat sensitive items (liquids, medications, etc.) on the opposite side.

Awaiting a BOS twin-silencer setup for my K12S. Love the looks and uniqueness. Was inspired after seeing the twin setup on the Ducati Streetfighter. Pics as soon as it arrives and I install it.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Okay, so answer me this, mr. wizard: I bought a full Z-Technik exhaust from Ride West BMW and they installed it. Supposedly, it has no warranty conflicts, and it is considered almost as OEM. I ride my bike for 10K miles, and it starts stuttering whenever it idles after it has warmed up. I meant that it sounds like it has a terrible upper respiratory infection. The service department has twice told me that there are no error codes and they will not explore the problem further with the possibility of warranty repairs unless the OEM exhaust is re-installed. IS THIS BULLSHIT, OR AM I (please be kind)? I have the OEM, but know that the will charge me to re-install it, then re-install my Z-Tech.

I was thinking of just sticking the can on the end of the pipe for the Z-Tech, but I couldn't ride it to the service department that way; the angles don't work. I live in an apartment building, and my "garage" has a 6% slope, poor lighting, and no place to lay things out. And, why should I? The only difference here is that there is no catalytic converter in the Z-Tech. The bike ran perfectly for 9.5K, and certainly the exhaust is not the variable here. It certainly does not have a moving or wear part that fell apart. The exhaust is passing the gas as it always has. Why won't they look beyond the "error codes" and do some troubleshooting? They said that they wouldn't!!! I'll bet they run the bike cold and don't even hear the stuttering. No code, no weird symptoms, no problem. And they didn't tell me when I bought the system that, if there were any engine problems, I'd have to pay them to change the system out twice to even have them attempt to fix it. I'm thinking these guys don't care that I have an S1000RR on order. Hmmmm, so I lose something when I go to buy an R1. I like Eastside Motorsport. They have 1198Ses there as well. I hope the salesmen from both shops are reading this.

I like the 6% slope garage motorcycle parking not one bike but a second on the way.
Even better in the winter in Seattle

Okay, so the girlfriend is a bit of a prob right now, since I'm in the middle of d-i-v-o-r-c-e (as Tammy sang it). I've got the tools. Beside the slope, we bikers have to park in the little nooks behind columns and such. I'll be breaking the new bike in in winter here. You can do that in Seattle, believe it or not. And, I've always wanted more than one bike, one for each form of motofun.

You're getting all bent out of shape over a dealer charging you to remove your exhaust?? And, it's the principal! They sold it to me and put it on when I bought the bike. They never said that, "if your K gets a cold, you'll have to change the whole system before we'll do anything but hook up to the ECU."

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Some of the responses here bring up the issue of rough running & noise with the slip on pipes. Couldn't you add packing material to bring back some back pressure & and cut down the noise at the same time? This way you could have the lighter, and better looking exhaust without some of the negative issues.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I had idle issues and dead spots with my Akrapovic Carbon exhaust and evoluzione race filters, and honestly it never ran half as well as the stock exhaust, but it sounded ridiculously good. I recently installed a Power Commander PC3 USB with the applicable map from the web site, and I couldn't be happier. My bike is so bad-ass now, I can't believe it. It is more smooth than stock and has no dead spots at all. It absolutely yells at you when you get on it and I still get better mileage than ever. I originally had a two brothers titanium exhaust and it was too sharp and "fast and furious sounding" if that makes any sense. The Akra sounds like warm chocolate and a Moto GP car mixed. I will never get rid of this bike.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I just inquired about a Staintune for my 1300GT. ( 09 ). My dealer said Staintune pulled the models off the market. The 1200gt went also. His reason was they were not exactly like they needed to be. So I think I am in for a long wait.

So what's the deal?

Remus seems like the real winner. I am still rocking the stock bazooka. I have read that when you swap it out you get more blipping and back pressure noise. I am getting tons of that with the stock exhaust. So do I get a power cone or hex cone?

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Gimpy: trust me on this. Get the Remus Powercone (long). Sounds great. The best part is, you DO NOT have to loosen your exhaust to remove the rear wheel for every single tire change !! They look cool! I like the titanium.

Paughco what's the difference between small, medium, and long? What's this about loosening the exhaust? I didn't.

If you are getting popping and backfiring with the stock exhaust, you have a problem.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I used a remus powercone on my k12s for about 9000+ miles.It had more top end and better mpg, average (50). I went back to stock, lost a little mileage but gained a world of torgue, (a lot more fun) also i always hit at least 100 mph on every outing. My opinion stock is sometimes better.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I too went with the Leo Vince SBC Factory, titanium w/ carbon end cap. Real nice tone. A little louder than stock but not annoying. Left the baffle in. Also, the price was more realistic.
Easy to install, no problems. Very good quality. If there is a drawback, it will need repacking someday....but I'm happy with it.

I had a Laser Titanium slip on and decided that I wanted a full system. I picked up the full race titanium 4-2-1 system from ztechnik. I will say that man it is loud. Definately shoots crazy flames as well. Anyway, I picked up a supposid 10 WHP, 8lbs of torque, and shaved twenty some total pounds off from stock. The whole system weighs around 9 pounds! I have not actually ridden the bike yet this season so that will be the tell tale on whether or not she will be way too loud to actually tour. As long as the drone isn't too bad, I am all for loud pipes!

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll


I fitted a CF Akrapovic. I’d have to say It’s bordering on being obnoxiously loud at lower speeds or when accelerating hard! Although once you are on the highway and getting in to warp speeds, it isn’t any louder than the stock exhaust (or at least it is drowned out with wind noise etc). I can’t honestly say I have seen any major difference in how the bikes responds on the throttle or how it idles. I fitted the exhaust directly after taking the bike back from having the bike serviced (its first service since I bought the bike), and I’d have to say the bike came back feeling 100% better the way it behaved on and off the throttle from my previous ride. The improvement must have been having the latest version of software installed on the bike (the bike still had the original software from the day it was sold only having covered 3,300 miles since 2005) as other than a complete fluid change out, the only other thing done on the bike was fit new tires. Either way, I am not disappointed with the Akrapovic with me happy with the quality sound and look of the exhaust

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I have the Leo Vince "Carbon" can on the K13S. The bike has ridden about 10,000 miles since I install the can. I keep thinking the sound has gotten a little bit louder over that time period but I could be just hearing things.

Does anyone know if the Leo Vince cans need to be repacked after a period of time? The end cap has been riveted onto the body of the can. It could be a job to replace the packing.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I went back to stock from 2 brothers, too much noise. For the minimal extra power available, mostly at higher revs, just not worth it.
I rarely use full power anyway.

Ti Remus Powercone. Sounds great! Adds 20 hp (I wish)! Let's you take off the rear wheel without futzing with that bazooka of a stock muffler.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I'm not sure just how much gain there really is with aftermarket exhaust systems. My bike has the full stainless steel headers, collector box and Remus Innovation can on it. I have the original reciept of what it cost. The stock setup would be on there if it had been mine in those days ! This bike seems to have more than adequate power so can you actually tell me that the Remus system I have is better than stock and if so, how much better? Unfortunately, I think I have the only BMW in town so nothing to compare to.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

The previous owner put on a complete Two Brothers system on the K1200RS. After using it for several months, I decided I preferred the quiet of a stock muffler and my dealer cut me a deal on a slightly used one. Glad I did it

Had a Two Brothers slip on, kinda loud. Put on a Akrapovic full system. Sounds and runs awesome

Though I like how quiet my KRS is, I wish the stock exhaust was desgigned so I could use a slip on like the KS, etc.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I just purchased a 2008 K1200S that came with a Remus muffler (I don't know which one - see picture below). The previous owner also just had the dealer install K&N air filters. He included the nearly new OEM muffler with the purchase.

Besides sounding nice (to me anyway) what does this setup do to the bike? Power increase? Better low speed running?

TIA,

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I took the stock can.
Removed the catalizer (probably a mistake, emissions control and backpressure are needed).
Removed some of the fiber padding that was creating a baffle.

Welded the can shut again.

It's loud, not too loud like an open pipe, but quite a few dB over the stock can.
Sounds awesome when I rev it.
Keep it in case I want to go gnarly and make some noise.
In my younger K12R I was know to run without any exhaust can. It was beyond loud. Neighbors, police and even Harley riders couldn't stand the noise.
I even won a noise competition (mostly against Japanese 1 liters who asked me to stop and declared me the winner)...

So, this modified can is a good compromise.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I fitted a Leo Vince Carbon Fiber slip on from new. After the rear end of the can got cracked during a trailer loading incident, I chopped off 300mm with a drop saw and riveted the end cap back on. Much cheaper solution than a new can and much better note also.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I used the Remus PowerCone (from Pirate, of course) with black and stainless. Sound is great and pickup is improved, some popping in decel but this kinda nice. With the booster plug added to stop the annoying surging at low rpm and topped off with K&N air filter dream riding has been improved.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Considering grabbing a Remus Hexacone in titanium to be rid of the giant silver tube and jet engine sound. Not really looking for more power considering the K12R has more than enough to get me in trouble already. Can't seem to find good sound comparison videos though for that. I really want to pick the slip-on with the 'best' sound. A lower note and a tad louder than stock (enough to drown out the engine whine, but not enough to annoy the neighbors) is what I'm after. Anyone know where I can hear a comparison between Vince, Akrapovic and Remus, or have well formed opinions regarding the difference between them?

Wearing a Sena HMR10 comm set.
Back to stock can looking to reduce noise.
The stock can sounds like a jet anyway.

Nothing honks like a 12 with a Remus POWERCONE. It's the only way to go. Sounds so fine.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

The carbon Akra on my K12S howls when you give it the beans, otherwise it's pretty sensible about town etc.
Give it a nice long over-run and it pops and crackles like a 'proper' race bike!
I have just booked a track day at Brands and was a bit worried about the noise limit, but measured it and it's about 98db, the limit being 102. Phew!

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I ended up putting the Remus Powercone on mine (due to Cali CARB making the hexacone unobtanium), and I gotta say, while nothing will ever compare to the growl of my V4 Honda, it sounds damn fine for an inline.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

You know when you love the sound of the exhuast when you find any excuse to take the bike out and listen to the sound. I like the deep mellow sound at low rpm and up through the mid range. However that Ferrari sound as it gets into the upper levels is also a big thril. Call me kid again as you down shift and the exhuast note pops at the flick of the throttle down through the gears. All my other k bikes sounded like a well engineered sewing machine which was cool but to have big horsepower with a sweet sound makes it even more thrilling. I have an Akrapovic full header and exhaust.

I had a full Laser Titanium system on mine from when I bought it from the dealer. I must admit it does sound so much nicer than the stock K12s and K13s I have heard.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

I would like a used Staintune slip-on exhaust for my 2008 K1200S. My bike is flawless and so this exhaust system will need to be as well. I have a perfect Remus Revolution (aluminum) which I could trade as well (and is for sale). Just looking to change accessories to enhance the ride and do not want to upgrade to a different bike as I love the K1200S. Call for pictures if serious.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Unless one is racing or simply seeking bragging rights from a dynamometer printout; IMO the most useless, counterproductive waste of money and time is accessory exhaust systems. They offer ZERO real-world performance benefits while their amplified sonic note only attracts Law Enforcement complications. I'd be positively giddy if my stock exhaust made my K12R as silent as an electric motorcycle.

I want one just for the sound, not interested in hp gains, or any of that, just the note of a nice Remus, or 2 Brothers, or Akrapovic or......

Some out there must have a nice one for sale, Christmas is coming soon....

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Why do aftermarket cans mimic the stock in size? Replacement mufflers from the same manufacturer of the same style will be longer for the K1200S than for the K1300S. What's the point of that??? And the K13S version will still be much longer than the same model for Japanese liter bikes.

I'd like a shorty for the K13S.

Re: K1200S/K1200R Exhaust Poll

Mine came with a carbon fibre Remus.

I intend to install a full titanium, cat delete set of pipes by Remus in 2017.

It will be good. With a PCV and a race map, coupled with a 55 gallon barrel of Torco 112 Leaded Race Fuel, it would become a truly special bike.

Installed Delkevic Tri Oval Stainless Steel 17" exhaust,connector pipe included $ 207.
2.7 kg, instead of the Teutonic Monster Cannon wich weighs 9.2 kg.
Really nice sound,a few more miles per gallon,smoother response.
