Thumbs down

Their has been two put on and both sold them. Or one system between two guys ?

LOUD !!!! LOUD !!!! LOUD !!!!

A lot of those who have done REMUS systems with either can have not had happy passengers because of the noise.

A post was made on "How Too" quite the remus street can to a noise level both rider and pillion can live with.

IMHO, a touring bike needs to be fairly quiet to spend hours on end riding it.
A nice purr is fine, but the blast of noise from a sport can is TOO MUCH racket !

JMHO.

I have a Remus on my 05LT with the street can. It helps the bike breathe easier and smoothes out the powerband in the low and mid range. It has a nice exhaust note; what I expect a motorcycle to sound like, without being too loud or annoying. It has a nice, low throat up to around 2500 rpm, then smoothes out to a mellow tone from 3 - 5000, and once above 6000 to redline it sings a beautiful song! The Remus sport cans are quite a bit louder (had one on my K12RS) so I wouldn't recommend that for the LT.

As I understand it, it does. The catalytic converter is part of the original exhaust system. When you replace the original exhaust, everything comes off and is NOT used again. So unless the aftermarket exhaust has a catalytic converter as part of the unit, there is none. Those that have either the Rhemus or BlackHole can verify for sure.

YMMV.

You will have to re-use the O2 sensor and be sure to have 4 new exhaust gaskets handy.

Remus

I love my remus. Engine really loves it also......breathes a lot better.
BUT......A little too loud.
Motorhead wrote up a great fix that puts the street can noise exactly where I wanted it, and doesn't require digging into your retirement account. S.O. is happy and I get a little growl.
