    Shotguns for early Mille/Tuono

    I've got a Falco and I'm changing the exhaust to one sided Mille setup. In the process I ended up having four (4) exhaust pipes. So, summing up, I have shotgun exhaust that I don't need (it does not look good on a Falco).

    When I got it I was told that it was Remus (cannot confirm - no paperwork, no stickers on it). I have to stress that it is not pristine, it would do with some cleaning, polishing as the finish is dull now. There is no physical damage as far as I can tell.

    It fits straight onto the header pipe (without need for a link pipe at all). I did not have an opportunity to fit it on a bike, so I don't know if it sounds good (but I bet it does, just look at it), or what/if there is any power gain. No marking if for race only, so you're safe.

    I'd like to get my money back really, that means 90 quid. I'll swallow the delivery (you may hear a loud 'gulp' across the UK ).

    Seb

    EDIT: in case of doubts in my credibility: check out AF1 site, or Rider Site, same nickname. I've been there for a while.

    Reserved for Caterpillar!

    The hanger is a part of construction, it holds the cans together, supporting them from the back. It's quite neat, and looks much better than those metal braces you see all around. Looks more like 'factory finish' if you know what I mean.

    Edit: Now SOLD! Thank you RSVZone and Caterpillar!

    Naah, that would be too easy. Besides, technically they are all Mille - a thousand (Tuono, Mille, Falco, Futura, Caponord). I'll post her pictures prior to painting, you'll help me pick the proper name. She's gona be a proper bitzer.

    The sound will come gents, the sound will come to be honest, I only had time to do the quick polish and fit and start up yesterday, and you have to remember I spent Sunday riding with the "other" set up and so my ears need a bit of time to re-adjust. Sounded quite deep on tickover and a blip here and there, but hoping to get out later to try it out and see how it sounds when it comes on pipe so to speak. I'll try and get a video/sound clip up.

    I've got to say, i'm looking forward to seeing it Seb! any ideas how much longer before you have it ready for painting?

    Knowing me - probably a year or two

    I'll probably just put the bike together (holiday end of June) and see what she looks like, post pics, gather opinions, do some photoshopping....

    Hi Sprocker! As I said in the other post, my friends claim I have an exhaust OCD Always been the same with most of the bikes i've had. I can't give you any news on the shotguns yet as I haven't managed to get out and ride, but maybe this evening if the weather sorts itself out.

    I think most who've read the posts know that I am extremely chuffed with the GP can, and Lee built it exactly to my specs, hence the internal outlet is the biggest he can do which is 76mm, which is set back from the external outlet of 100mm. I jumped at having the can made for a number of reasons and i've got to say it has proved to tick the box of every one of those reasons. One of them being, where else do you know that for the money you can have something built pretty much to exactly the specs you choose? The videos i've posted really can't translate the sound enough. One of my other passions is Hot Rods/American classics and probably the closest I can describe the sound to is the rawness of an open headered V8, which is why i'd never ride the bike with it fitted before 10 in the morning or 8 at night as it is feckin raucous It literally makes people stop and turn, and one described the roll off noise being closest to hearing something like a TVR on full tilt.

    Put it this way, on Sunday on a ride out with 3 friends, one with a VFR800 with 4 MV style race cans, a Fireblade with a Scorpion pipe, and a Speed Triple with Viper cans, all three had started their bikes in Swanage where we had stopped for a cuppa, and when I then started the RSV, literally the place came to a stop, and yes, you'd have been hard pressed to hear the other bikes over the top.

    Gates of hell

    If I was going to have one built by Lee for general use, then i'd probably go for a 50-60mm internal outlet with a 90mm external outlet. I'd guess that this would tone it down to just above the louder side of say the Akra.

    I got the shotguns from Seb because it was such a great deal (cheers again Seb ) and like I say, I love the looks of the older style 500GP two stroke twin stacked cans.

    Horses for courses really! I've got swapping the cans over down to just over 5 minutes, so it's not like it is really a ball ache to do

    Seb, get your arse into gear with that there Familleuono!!!
