    Remus install for R1200RT

    Just installed a Remus sport exhaust on my '08 RT. Got a good deal from the local BMW shop as it was a floor sample. Unfortunately they had opened the packaging to display it and in the process lost some of the hardware. After a few back and forths I think I've got everything. The instructions state to bolt the muffler hanger to the passenger footrest- doesn't say, "with supplied bolt/nut". The kit was missing additional hardware to do this. I deduced that I was missing a nut & washer as the nut on the factory muffler is encapsulated in it. I obtained an 8.8 nut, washer and lock washer and bolted the bracket to the back side if the passenger footrest (used the factory torx bolt/washer). Although the bolt/nut are very tight the muffler wiggles back and forth more than I think it should- there is a rubber bushing in the footpeg bracket, so I would expect some give...but it seems a bit sloppy. The instructions are vague and the photocopied pics are the size of a quarter...so I'm unable to see the level of detail to confirm I have everything bolted on correctly and in the correct sequence. Any ideas/words of wisdom? Perhaps it's normal to have this much movement in the exhaust- but compared to the stock this seems awfully loose.

    Remus

    Did you ever get an answer to your question. I have just installed the pipe on my RT and it seems loose. Was there a fix for this??

    Tom:

    I looked at the Remus on my 1200ST, and there is a rubber doughnut as part of the fasterner and bracket set up, but the exhaust can is absolutely tight.

    I would think the footpeg mount is similar to that on your RT.

    I'll post a couple of pictures later.

    This is an old picture that I just happened to have on Photobucket. Parts from the inside out are: Nut, bracket from exhaust pipe, rubber grommet, foot peg mounting hole, rubber grommet, large metal washer(same diameter as rubber grommet), bolt. The mount is firm but it will move a little because of the flex in the rubber grommets. Hope that helps.......

    Thanks for the pictures and instructions. That is exactly how I installed the can. Still seems to be looser than expected.
