GPR Exhausts - anyone know owt about em?
« on: June 19, 2012, 10:27:56 PM »
having recently bought the bestest, most amazeballs bike I've ever had I'm on a mission to tweak the bad boy by adding some new acoustics to the symphony. Therefore I'm looking for a nice end can and on my search, I came across GPR cans who are based in Italy. They boast fabulous sound at a decent price without the need for a remap, I contacted them directly and asked about the remap and they said "no neeeeed" Therefore, fellow tiger lovers I was wondering if any of you have sampled said delights and might be willing to share your experiences?

Cheers.

I used their stuff on other bikes. OK quality on cheaper models, nicer on more expensive. Good sound, good set of removable baffles, they even do some headers. Definitely worth price.
Not sure about remap. My friend Vstrom runs actually better with that pipe, no mixture problems.

I have a GPR powercone on my xc. MPG is much better on standard tune with DB killer in. Sounds better and even better when the db killer is removed though I have left it in as the sound balance is good.
Only complaint is the circlip for the db killer goes rusty.....
Overall very happy with the pipe, much lighter, better sounding and smaller.

1. I'm not sure that I got you right. Do you mean better MPG than with the factory muffler on, or do you mean that the bike is thirstier with the dB killer taken out of the GPR, than with the dB killer plugged into the GPR?

2. Whats te weight of the GPR powercone?. Dou you know that?

I get better mpg with the powercone with db killer fitted using the standard fuel mapping not the arrow mapping.

The powercone is much lighter but i didn't weigh it.......
