I have no experience with the R1200R exhaust, let alone the R1200R .I have been on the hunt for something that sounds beefy and the video i posted below is an exhaust i like from Akrapovic. Do you think it sounds good or what?
YouTube - Akrapovic R1200R
Two tips on that bike look cool to me, how come you don't like it?Sounds pretty good, and not obnoxious. It might look better with only one tip coming out the can instead of two.
Somewhere I saw a review/comparo of R1200R pipes and the only one that added any horsepower at all was the Remus (if i'm remembering correctly) and it wasn't much... maybe 2 hp. My Leo Vince claims to be lighter but isn't and with the standard baffle installed is almost exactly as quiet as the stock pipe was.Are any of these exhausts a combination of (1) quiet as stock and (2) more horsepower/less backpressure than stock?
Maybe, but i saw it in a printed form. I think the independently published BMW mag available in bookstores. They did a dyno test on all of the slip ons available for the R1200R. The article was actually about some other stuff and this was just an aside. If I weren't so cheap I'd have bought the danged thing and I'd have it available.I think I found the review site for all those cans. Maybe worth joining?
