The Titanium is slightly lighter. On a bike the size of an LT you'd never notice. Save your money and get the aluminum.

+1 on what Ted said. I have the aluminum Remus on my LT and I have no complaints. It's still 13 or so pounds lighter than stock, and sounds mighty nice!

I got the aluminum

It just sounds a little different. You'd probably have to make measurements to tell if there was a difference in performance. There is a chip that you can add for more $$$ that is supposed to make a performance difference. I can't tell.

I LOVE my remus aluminum street can system, wife not so much.
Doing the outlet mod did however REALLY quiet the low thunder during roll on and low rpm running.

I would say yes. With the stock pipe the bike would stop making power and feel leaned out well before reaching redline. With the remus it pulls hard and strong all the way to the rev limiter.

On my 2005 I installed the Rhinewest cam gear set and with the two working togather it will hit redline much quicker than stock. Top end went up about 4mph also.

I have the exhaust and chip and notice a difference. My wife doesn't like the exhaust but I like the extra power of the chip and exhaust. I don't know if I would put the exhaust on if I didn't have the chip as well. If I remember you have to let the chip people know if you have stock or custom exhaust and they give you the chip that works best for that combination.
