Don't know anything about set up....lifted from the Remus site....
Well...others have received increased power with the Remus system. Streettracker just did a test of a bunch of exhausts on the XR-including the Remus system, and recorded the gains.
The Remus full system is consistently showing poor results whether its on a UK/Euro spec bike or a US spec bike. There are several dyno charts on here that show the same poor results with the Remus system when compared to another run on the same bike on the same dyno.My bike is apparently making less power than stock with a Remus full exhaust system, Remus Powerizer, and Pipercross filter. I was noticing a loss of power around 6000 rpm in 5th gear (with the 38 tooth motor sprocket) (the max speed I was able to attain was only 113 mph), so I decided to get my bike dyno tested at my dealer (Montana Harley-Davidson, a performance oriented Harley shop that is also a Ducati and Buell dealer). My results with a Dynojet WINPEP7 in Missoula, MT (3200 feet elevation) were as follows: (1) Baffle out, Powerizer hooked up: Max power = 74.59 and max torque = 68.70, with too rich fueling between 2000 and 3000 rpm and over 5000 rpm (especially over 6000 rpm, which probably accounted for my bogging down in that range); (2) Baffle in, Powerizer hooked up: Max power = 76.49 and max torque = 67.98, with too rich fueling between 2000 and 3000 rpm, but pretty good at all other rpm readings; (3) Baffle out, stock ECM: Max power = 74.63 and max torque = 66.97, with fueling too rich between 2000 and 3000 rpm, too lean between 3000 and 4000 rpm and close to spot on from 4200 rpm to redline; (4) Baffle in, stock ECM: max power = 75.41 and max torque = 66.87, with fueling pretty much identical to the baffle out readings. After getting these poor results, the shop dyno tested my dealer Doug Woodahl's personal XR1200, which is box stock. These were the results: Max power = 83.25 and max torque = 69.22, with fueling on the lean side from 3000 rpm to 4000 rpm. When the shop goes to winter rates, I will put the stock exhaust back on and do some more dyno runs to see if I have a weak motor or if the Remus system isn't all it's cracked up to be. I still like the looks, weight savings, and increased ground clearance with the Remus though.
For Remus..?There's a dyno chart on here somewhere, and also on Mat's site:~
FastKevin, you got any links, etc. showing otherwise?
I personally don't give any weight to manufacturer supplied data, but if that floats your boat..
There's also threads all over this forum talking about the Remus, and every other system..IIRC, some complaining about it's gain, but I don't remember one saying anything about the Remus robbing power.
Wouldn't matter if they did..as with the OP's bike, you can't make that call if your bike's AFR is messed up.
I wasn't aware of the 'hate Remus' brigade floating around here, and would appreciate it if you didn't make me your poster boy.
All I did was state fact..
You wanna argue AFR has nothing to do with an exhaust's performance,..you should take it up with someone who'll buy into it. I've seen different, hundreds of times.
FWIW, I don't even own a Remus.
Dal..those results havent been posted. ST is doing a magazine article so he can't reveal the numbers yet.~
When, exactly, and in what thread, did Streettracker post the results of his company's dyno tests for exhausts... And where was it shown in those tests that the Remus system showed gains over stock?
Do you have a link?
