Trophy exhaust options.
« on: January 25, 2014, 11:13:09 AM »
I don't really like Trophy sound before 5000rpm. As I think it will be the the sound I will listen often due to Trophy standard ride I want to change exhaust can.
I used Akrapovic and Remus on my Speed so I have three options.
One is the Remus  hexacone and it's the only one that fits trophy without any modifications.
Other is Roadsitalia projsix titanium. They only fit to Explorer so I will modify link pipe and bracket. As it's the same engine it will be no problem at all.
The other option is the Akrapovic unit made for BMW K1300GT. As it's an engine with similar CC and exhaust flux it won't be any more problems than modify link pipe and maybe bracket will fit into Trophy. I'm not sure.
What do you think? I really like the Akra unit. The only problem is money.
Akra 1200€ aprox. Plus fitting mod.
Remus 670€ aprox. Fitting Trophy.
Roadsitalia Projsix 235€ apron. Plus fitting mod.

I would be exceptionally wary of adding an exhaust not specifically 'tuned' for the ECU of the bike in question. Even the slightest difference in exhaust gas flows can be enough to up set the software in the ECU and that can lead to disaster!

don't worry about that. i did a lot of times and the only that you have to maintain is the link pipe diameter and the area of the can termination. if you are not removing catalyst fluxes would remain practically the same. Only the resonance will change sound.
ECU is ready to response to changing climate conditions and exhaust changes if they are limited. I've played a lot with my Speed while I was fitting akrapovic own modified exhaust and all was running very well while catalyst was in. When I sold akra unit and fitted Remus double hexacone system bike started to run poorer and really needed to change inyection map. Even when the Remus was specially designed for the speed.
Is it available tune ECU for Throphy models?

Hoho, someone out there is probably working on custom maps, but that ECU is a touchy subject around here these days. You'll probably have to go to a different site for that info.
But some custom shop I'm sure has something made up.

At this moment I don't really want to get inside ECU. Warranty is very weak  and I don't want to play with it.

There's also the "Staintune" exhaust - I think they're an Australian Company, I have not seen or tried their product,
but I remember it being discussed previously on the Forums here : Staintune Exhaust  :028:

Staintune exhausts are quality stainless art, sound good and not too loud.

Still waiting on a reply from them, when I last looked they still didn't have the Trophy listed.
I'll ring them this week.

Thanks a lot but it's not an option for me really. Shipment costs from there and customs here will f  :087: me with extra cost.
