I am going to replace my original end can to get a more juicy sound

My short list is as following in random order:

  1. Giannelli
  2. African Queens Inox Oval "TITAN"
  3. Remus Revolution GP, Titan, EG/ABE
  4. Leo Vince SBK OVAL EVOII ALUMINUM
  5. GPR Oval titanium
  6. Others?
It´s so hard to choose between above. Which one would you prefer and why?

Besides design and price, I am also concerned about mounting points and brackets for mounting

Remus Revolution - sounds great with the baffle, awesome with it removed - well built, lightweight, rustfree materials, straight swapover and easy fitting.

I love mine :p :D (and another excuse to show it off.......:rolleyes:)

You have one of the best looking bikes here :D At least to my taste. By the way, i have tried to track down those PIAA ekstra lights you have on. Havent had any succes to find one. The shop on ebay do not sell them anymore:confused:
Are the pannier frames also from Ricky Cross?

Cheers Coolmann :p

For the PIAA 002Xtreme lights - try here

The pannier frames are the Touratech frames for my Zega cases (cue another excuse to show another picture :D :D :D :D )

Leo vince, under 3000rpm you could ride it round your grannys garden.3500 to red line it gets prehistoric.allow the small screw to fall out and remove the baffle and it breathes a little easier but still ok up to 2500 and after that it gets very special. But rev off and it behaves again except for just the right amount of overrun. mel, who is biased!!!

The Leo Vince is a good exhaust and can be bought quite cheap from Italy on ebay; but there are other good ones you can get too. This thread has a lot of info:

One of the good things about the Leo Vince is that it's very compact, and can be mounted very neatly; some of the others stick out a lot further back.

The Leo Vince is supposed to be mounted with a bracket that fits behind the pillion footpeg, and has two "straps" that go round the can. You can use one of those straps on the bracket they supply, and move the other one towards the back of the can and fix it to the OE exhaust mounting point (you only need an M8 bolt, about 80 or 100mm, plus a bit of tube to make a spacer). Mounted like that it's really solid. Thanks to Breeze for sharing that secret! Picture here...

Motad venom is a nice exhaust with the baffle removed, can be quite through town, but give it the berries and you will wake the dead!!

Nice and cheap too, they are clearing them on ebay at the moment!

My bike has an Arrow Paris Dakar Replica (I think this is the correct name) fitted and it makes a beautiful sound even with the baffle on. It's small, light and gives the bike an "almost works-bike" look.
The problem is that this can is not road-legal, so when I take the bike to the technical inspection (like your MoT) I must mount a road-legal one.

It`s a Remus Revolution for me.
The sound is fruity, the finish is high quality, the fit is easy and neat and I love the acute angle up the bike with the cheeky return angle of the exit pipe - reminds me of an SP1 or 2. Hell, I`d better stop, I`m getting a hot flush!

You`ve got a nice problem to wrestle with so enjoy,
