Remus headers and slip on

Post by Poddy »

Hi guys
I have a 2015 of which I plan tomorrow to pick up a full Remus system which bypasses the cat so what remapping will I need


Cheers

I have just looked at the Remus site and it doesn't list one for the LC. Where are you getting it from.
Just found it on Remus US site.  Had a Remus end can on an 1150.  VERY noisy, no noticeable increase in performance and slightly dodge build quality.  You never know, they might have improved.  Don't think remapping will be needed though.  Surly Remus would tell you if it did.

Found this from Motorworks in the UK, http://www.motorworks.co.uk/vlive/TheShed/PDF/Remus.pdf

When fitting a Full System, they say,
"No need to re -jet / re-map (Optional).
Extensively dyno tested to ensure healthy power and torque curves with no ''flat spots''."


The Cat. is removed, but the Oxygen Sensors are retained.

Having said that, some Folks have had their RT LC's remapped with the BMW OEM System.

Motorworks (UK) sell Remus Header Sets, Silencers & Complete Systems for the RT LC,

Wow, they ain't cheep, 1K+.  If I was going down that route the cat would stay and an Akra titanium end can would be my choice.  still have half the money left.

Depends if you want to be an anti-social noisy so and so as my last bike (kawasaki Versys) if you completely removed the end can it wasn't over loud as the cat did a good job of noise reduction  :(

i just did a full Remus system on my '11 - after about 500 miles i ended up putting the stock header back on - not loud like my harleys, just the tone of the full system annoyed me. It's perfect now with the stock header/slip on imo. i used the booster plug along with the install and seems to run great with the stock header or the Remus header.

Finally got to do a good ride with the Headers and Cann on and live it, the seat of my pants Dyno gave it a big thumbs up and the run up to 200+ kph is faster than its every been


Good choice for me

Glad you're happy with it mate, thats all that matters. I just have the Akra can on mine, and thats plenty loud enough for me, even with the DB killer in.
I would suggest getting your bike a good remap though, as this would be the icing on the cake. And it would sort out any Lean-running issues that de-catting can cause.
http://hilltopmotorcycles.co.uk/ did my 2014 RTLC, and the results were superb.

Good job you told us the year - for a minute I thought they'd fitted the can on the wrong side!

Having done the deed on the headers I have to say it has opened up the bike, the extra performance is well worth it,  it is more that it just gets there quicker and the sound, well others love it, I'm on the bike so can't really tell.

Assume you have checked that this won't impact your warranty. Are you also getting the bike mapped?

Are you in the Europe or the US. My UK dealer advised me against using a Remus slip on due to warranty and so I bought the Akra.
