Im sure I remember reading something years ago by Shiva himself that although the 2-Bros might give highest BHP, it robbed the bike of a big chunk of midrange torque. If your into racing and revving not a big deal but for the majority of real world riding I want midrange, wish I could find the article.
Its funny as a few years back I had a R1100S which I put a Remus system on. After a few months I had to take the cans off as one of them developed a crack, so I put the OE cans back on for a while, you know what, same thing, bike was actually nicer to ride, though a bit quiet.
Fast-forward to today and my K1300GT, Ive also just taken the Remus off and gone back to the OE "bazooka" mainly as the Remus is just too loud for me. I use the bike for work and leave pretty early some days and think its a bit unfair waking the neighbourhood up, I know, I must be getting old, but you know what, same thing again, midrange is back. Maybe with a PC111 and some dyno time It could be made better, but actually for this bike especially, its not what I want.
