Very nice.

I had a Remus can on my first BMW R1200RT and it was much lighter than stock and seemed to be decent quality. It came with a removeable baffle which I was going to remove until I fired the bike up in the garage.  The baffle stayed in and it was definitely louder than stock but still legal.

Loud cans don't "save lives" in my opinion, but I like to hear a nice engine note.

My brother has a K1600GT which he started up on his garage - it sounded like a race bike ! (Well, maybe a little quieter  :002:)

Ordered my Remus HexaCone carbon fiber today.  It should be in in about a week.  I will get that before I get the needed fork seals.

I had a Titanium Remus on my K1300GT, really changed the bike's aural personality. Sounded much more hyper, like a Gixxer or an R1 than a big, bad sport cruiser and that was with the silencer in place...without the silencer there was a loud, distracting THRUM going on while cruising the super-slab -> very annoying. I heard the Remus on a new Trophy, sounded very similar to the K13. So, I would prefer my bike to sound more mellow, deep throated than hyper sport bike. Anyone out there know of a "megaphone" type "can" rather than the super bike types?  -Dr Ron

Hi mate, funny you say this, I still own a K1300GT and I too put a Remus on it last year, and promptly took it off about 2 weeks later, as you say made it sound too sportsbike for my liking but also I found it put a big hole in the midrange. Fast forward a few months and thought Id try again, this time with a LeoVince can, much better, a more low down bass sound and no discernible loss of midrange, very happy and it was actually very cheap I thought, £220. I only went for the standard Ally can as I didnt want to waste another £300 odd on the Titanium only to find it wasnt suitable.

Dont know if Leo Vince do a can for the Trophy and I cant obviously comment on how it wil perform but maybe worth a look.

I would definitely appreciate an off market slip on that would take several pounds of the bike.

Does anyone know if the current OEM can is 'really heavy'.

Delkevic makes a really inexpensive and much lighter can for the Concour and it does keep the bike nice an quiet...it be nice if they made one for the TT.

I heard the sound bit on the Remus and IMHO it makes the bike sound like a perpetual fart. Like Trumpetman, I rather keep that touring low profile sound. Noise is not a good companion over the long haul on the road.
