BOS Exhaust System

I know what you're thinking. Why? Aside from looks, like it or not, they claim and I quote: "The performance had an increase of about 3.5 Hp on top of the power increase of a single oval!" I want to know what you guys think, "brilliant" or "bullshit". Click on the pic for details.

Bullshit, because even if it gave my 10HP I wouldn't be caught dead with that POS on my KS.

Yeah, sorry man but I don't think I'd be tempted. 'German bike, he speak with forked tongue ...'

Nah!

Their performance improvement claims are consistent with those made my other aftermarket exhaust companies (Remus, Staintune, et al).

Buy 'em because they look cool as hell ... I doubt you'll really notice the claimed 3.5hp anyway. If you're just replacing the cans you won't notice much of anything but a new sound.

I think the carbon-fiber cans looks cool as hell -- don't listen to these other guys! Buy it!



PS. OTOH, I have a full Remus system on my K12RS (no cat, etc.) with the Rhinewest chip -- this setup offers NOTICEABLE performance improvements over stock.

When I'm not rockin' @ radio.wazee I'm screamin' around Denver on my 2003 K1200RS!

My guess is

that the two smaller pipes would weigh more than a single large one, volume for volume.

The hp increase is greater than 7 bhp compared to the stock bmw can. :o
