So it seems that Birkenfelder will be having the best looking exhaust for our bike out there, he requested some pictures and measurements and here they are.



Here you can see the slider opening you can have it all open for louder noise, or like me, all closed.


I went for the black one, originally I had a steel tip but didn't like the fact that it gets dirty with the exhaust, so I switched for a black one.
SILVER

BLACK





So you have an idea the difference in size, and diameter.

Nice looking silencer. Are there any dyno numbers comparing it to stock? Who do you contact to order one? Thanks!

I don't have any dyno numbers, the bike feels exactly the same.

I worked with Jason Dueweke [email protected] to be able to make a perfect fit for our bikes one, pretty small company so you can talk to the actuall owner and request some costume color, length, tip shape and color.......

He Classic, welcome back.
Ho is your under-tail doing btw??
He Hoshiko, the undertail is still doing good (looking awesome). Put 300 miles on last weekend. It's still louder than I anticipated but compared to the bikes I ride with, I can barely hear it over theres'.. No melting, no noticible heat even with it down in the lower 50s last week. Good news btw, just picked up a camera. Will be re mounting the plate on the right side off the caliper mounts soon...

Thanks, Hoshiko! ...and sorry for my tardy response. I've been busy workwise, and this thread wholly escaped me. Super pics.

Yep, been in touch with Jason but I'm still doing a bit of head scratching as to exhaust options. Ultimately, I hope you're correct about that "best looking exhaust" ...as it stands though, I believe you hold that title...although Classic11 is a strong second place.

Hosiko...just one more HR1 question: Is there a center stand bumper stop on your HR1 connector pipe? If no, does the center stand rubber stop simply contact the pipe? Thanks!

Oh ya... Anything you would do different HR1 wise? Any last words of counsel before I give Jason the GO?

No, there is nothing to stop the center stand, you can go to any exhaust place and have some metal piece wielded exactly at the place where the rubber stop from the center stand hits, or if you are lazy like me, just buy a stainless steel clamp and have the center stand rest on it.

Hoshiko - my Dad often quoted "he who waits will be rewarded..." It was worth the wait for the HR1 exhaust. We had quite a time getting the connector pipe correct...as Jason no longer had the CNC inputs to bend the c-pipe. He does now though! Jason was excellent to work with.

I just came back from a short 20 mile low altitude flight through the countryside - I think the bike feels faster after the exhaust lipo-suction removed 10+ lbs.:clap: Nice sound too...not as nice as many engines...but very nice for the boxer it is...its now akin to any horizontally opposed engine breathing easy, and reminds me of a '65 356C I had with similar custom headers and exhaust.

Attached are a few pics with the water heater removed and replaced.

Nice can, as it were. . .I'm going to save (or print) my money for a pair of BST wheels when I need new tires. Carbon fiber and *all the weight saving is unsprung weight.

That looks so much nicer, I don't think it really gives more power to the bike, but because of the different (better for me) noise, I find myself accelerating harder and going higher on the RPMs.

How are you resting the center stand?

Hoshiko, I mounted a rubber bumper on the round center stand cross-member. That bumper hits the head of the bolt on the exhaust connector pipe clamp, thus keeping the center stand away from the exhaust pipes by about 1/2", and also allowing the center stand to swing up to a cushioned stop...and also preventing any rattling of the center stand while underway.

We must be on the same wavelength...that way, when the cop asks for the plate number and model number you can save a bit of breath... while not tasking his mental abilities. :001_rolleyes:

Well, my R12R doesn't have the decals on the tank, so I figured a plate would suffice without being over the top in scripting/badging. I am quite happy I was able to snag the R1200R vanity plate. :)
