    Depends on what you need. Did your stock one fail, check the flea market. Do you just want more sound and do not care about performance, have a muffler shop bend up an S bend, weld on a stainless steel glasspack. Want a tiny bit more power, then spend the big bucks.

    First question has to be "Why?".
    Second question is how much dough you want to spend.

    If the answer is more power you won't be able to feel any by simply changing the exhaust. Most after market exhaust systems make more noise not more power.

    Laser

    I went with the Laser +Powerchip on my '04 RT and am satisfied with it. Not sure about power increase since there never seemed to be much of it to begin with, but I like to think it's a little peppier. It's definitely lost the "sewing machine" exhaust note. My brother has the Remus on his '02 and for some odd reason we've never gotten the bikes side by side for a comparison (although we live < 10 miles apart!).

    For virtually any modern FI motor the exhaust is the last thing to change when trying to improve operation- rarely is a change needed for street use.
    If you just want more/different sound have at it- seems like a lot of $ for minor utility..

    I've been looking at GPR from Italy, nice range and very affordable...heard only good things about them and there are a bunch of videos of "mounted to Beemers" on youtube. The GPR DEEPTONE knocks 30 pounds off my R1100R, eliminates the CAT and adds a nice thumper sound that should make me more noticeable to other drivers... Not Harley loud, just louder than stock.

    23.5

    MAXBMW fische lists the weight of the origional cat exhaust at 23.5 lbs. So I take it the new one is -6.5 lbs. i'd have to see that. If you like the new exhaust and your wallet is a bit heavy it will lighten that too. Go for it!

    If you must make a mistake, make a new one each time.

    I'm going by another R1100R owner who weighed his stock system at 36lbs(muffler, collector,down pipes and catalytic converter with hoses), the GPR deeptone eliminates all these parts and weighs in at 6lbs.

    Here's a GPR Deeptone on a BMW R100R like mine.

    Two Bros

    I went with the Two Brothers Cat Eliminator on my R11RTP along with a Power Commander III. I did tone it down a bit with the Power Tip, sometimes. Other times, I took it out for full throatiness. Had it all dyno tuned afterwards by someone who really knows how. I liked it, a lot. Just gave the bike to my son-in-law. He also likes it.

    I have heard of taking the cat converter off, cutting a hole in it's top, removing the guts and welding it back up.
    Sounds like an inexpensive way to do it. EPA wouldn't approve, though.
