    I think the gpr sounds great, i to have thought about carfully cutting open the cat and gutting it out. are they welded inside big time, i gutted one out on a crusier model, a febel attempt at best because of the way it was welded at every nook an cranny.

    For me, the stock system is too quiet; I'm not looking for more power. From observing other BMWs, most owners leave the stock system on. This is a totally subjective thing, and on my other fun machine, I left the stock system on; it sounds just right. But on my boxers, I've installed aftermarket systems.

    As for cost, riding is a hobby, and if I wasn't spending $1,500 on a Remus, I might be spending that amount on a brass locomotive, if I was a model railroader, or on a first day cover, if I was a philatelist.

    I like Remus because they make OEM stuff for BMW, and have a big R & D department. Oh, and they sound just right.

    I played around with a SuperTrapp muffler on my '00 1100RT. This eliminated the cat and O2 sensor so the bike ran open loop only and subsequently very rich. Mileage suffered a bit and at first the sound of the big twin was fun especially around town. Then the summer rally season got underway and it was all long rides. I adjusted the number of cones to muffle it as low as possible but honestly after a long day in the saddle the noise was too much and actually bothered me. My riding buddies found it loud (and smelly) from behind.

    I put the stock pipe back on and have not looked back. It could do with a richer tone perhaps but I think I prefer the quiet. Later on I got involved with Roger04RT in beta testing his AF-XiED on the 1100 and as a result I've now installed an Innovate LC-1 on my bike to enjoy the benefits of this great O2 sensor shifting device. I guess having a bike that sounds great is one thing but having one that runs great is really the ticket in my case. I don't see after market pipes doing anything on that front so I reckon I don't need them.

    That said they do look and sound cool!

    I had SuperTrapps on my R100RS, and the noise from them started bothering me after a time. Had I kept the bike, I would have adjusted the numbers of discs to quieten it down. The Remus systems on my next two Boxers give a nice snarl at 3,500 rpm and over, and aren't tiring at cruise. You can hear them while accelerating, they resonate off cliff faces, and there is a nice symphony while running the twisties in the Kootenays.

    Does anyone make an s pipe so as to hook any kind of can on it, iam not worried about open loop because i use the dobec 1031 fuel management system. open loop closed loop whatever it is, thanks folks. and yes i like to hear my boxer motors, the stock system is jes to quiet. (the 1031 eliminates the 02 censor)
