Full Dual Exhaust

Yes, Muzzy makes a complete dual exhaust for the Concours14.

I does away with the cat converter and oxygen sensors if so equipped.

I run a Two Brothers Titanium slip on. GET ALL KINDS OF COMPLIMENTS.

The Two Bros system was easy to install. They could not have made it easier.
It is SO much lighter and far more good lookin than that stock truck' muffler.
No spring involved..nice n clean. Really has a nice meaty sound. It was like getting a new bike again.
I considered the dual setup. But my ride has CA cat with two Oygen sensors. I didn't want to mess with that setup.
You will be blown away by the sound that comes out of that can when you get on the throttle..Wow! sounds like a Farrari.
Ride on...

AreaP makes both a slip on and a full system (w/O2 sensor bung). The AreaP, 2 Bros, and DiVince seem to be the most popular slip on being used. I have the AreaP with the flies out, PCV and BMC filter. This set up makes a significant difference in the bike. Much more linear and pulls strong from down low. Fuelmoto out of Wisconsin can provide everything you might need and can provide the PC premapped for the particular set up. The graph that they have for my set up show 150 hp at the wheel. Oh yeah, the AreaP looks and sounds almost identical to the Akro system that I have on my 12R. Sweet!
Definately dump the bazooka!

I pickede up a 2010 exhaust and put it on my 08, a little shorter and I can still sneak by the local smokies in the morning.

Trees are like magnets, if you look at one too hard you'll probably hit it.
I miss my 01, the silver was fastest!
08 Concours....as close to silver as I could get!

I didn't like the length of the stock exhaust so I cut it down approx 5" and it looked much better, however I was still a little disappointed with having a single sided exhaust so I install a full system from a ZX 14... It is a little louder but in a good way, it also gave a noticeable power increase with no mapping necessary.. Way less money than the aftermarket option, but if you are after the most power you can get then the aftermarket option will most likely be the best, I did mine for looks only....

I took my stock potato launcher apart by grinding off the weld on the back end, pulling out the innards, modifying the baffle system to eliminate one of the inner partitions and then cut it down 5 inches. I then put it all back together, and re-welded the end. I also removed all the black and silver paint, and polished the stainless (!) can, and aluminum end caps. You may be able to see it in the video, that I posted earlier of my recent trip to Yellowstone. I am really happy with the way it turned out. The sound is slightly louder, but still quieter than my '05 c-10. I can just barely hear the exhaust over the wind with the windshield all the way up. I would describe the sound as the same deep growl as stock, but now I can just hear it mixed in with the sound of the tires and wind. If anyone is interested, I took pictures as I was doing the modification, and I can try to post them.

What is the quietest slip on made ?

I don't like how the elephant cock looks but I like my 2 up touring bike to be quiet so I can listen to music or the lady on the back...
