Half way :)

Does anybody know where this washer goes? I’m pretty sure it’s from the heat shield - just not sure where? :)

Yes: I'm already going to get you pics. it comes down to the first bolt, but from inside the heat shield. You move the shield into position, insert the first bolt, but don't pull it all the way through, finger the bottom and insert a washer from the inside, and immediately after that a pad of heat resistant wool - fiber. so these two washers are on the inside of the shield and between the nut where the final mounting bolt screws in.
It's certainly the same in principle as my Akrapovič.

Fantastic - just what I needed to know. Thanks a lot!

I have one addtional question. How closed to the cat did you manage to get your slip on?

My Remus looks like this and the stock sits just a little bit closer to the “bump” on the cat. Hope it makes sense :). Two first pictures are the Remus. Last one is stock on the other side.

my K1600GT [email protected]č: no gap. The exhaust is fitted all the way to the stop, almost to the weld. The mounting sleeve is in the same place. To use your picture as an illustration, my exhaust end is in position A > A1. There is no other way to install it, the fitment is determined by design and the second fixing point, which is the structure under the passenger seat. If the exhaust was not fitted properly, then the mentioned second fitment point would not fit and I would not be in the axis of the fixing bolt hole (see first picture). Otherwise, there is a possibility that the exhaust pipe lead design is a little different on the 2022B.

I think it’s where it’s supposed to be - at least for a Remus :).

I thought, if the heat shield fits - then it’s in the right place. And the bracket on the heat shield and on the exhaust is perfectly aligned.

Thank you very much for your help!

Haha, me too. I just finished installing the other side and they are quite a bit louder than stock - even with the db-killers in (so I will keep them in, for sure :).

I also found the reason for the gap. The ‘sleeve’ on the stock pipes are deeper than the Remus.

Remus:



I got them one, but $#%* the right side was tricky to get on :)

Interesting: will Remus allow the removal of the dB killer? Are these Remus EU approved? Akrapovic only has homologation for the types that do not allow (my case) non-destructive removal of dB killers and inserts. Yes, I can drill it out the side through the carbon end and put it away, but that's asking for trouble with the cops. And I won't pass tech inspection. Then they have a "sport" version, unhomologated, and here the inserts can be easily removed. Which is a big risk in Europe today.

No, they are not. Remus has not made a EUR5 version for the B yet, neither has Akra. I got impatient after corresponding with Remus and Akra, so I bought the EUR4 - non-homologated version of the Remus :). That’s why the db-killers can be removed!

Finally - I had to adjust the right side quite a few times. Not nearly as good a fit as the left side. Very tricky to get the lenght and height/level to fit the left side.

Sleep now and test ride tomorrow :)

These are my next purchase, I have a set in a shopping cart but having a hard time hitting the order button, LoL, price is insane for these slip on’s! I watched a video today of a guy who is running 2 db killers in and 2 out, sounded great!

Love em, did you spray the heat shields black to blend in , I used black heat resistant paint to spray paint mine.

I run mine with the baffles out, if you ride calm they aren’t loud. But that changes when you become a hooligan.

For us hooligans leave your baffles in! LOL

I agree 100%.
Definitely need to blackout the heat shields, and definitely not loud if you don't want them to be (without the baffles in) but roar when you want them too! This too me is a huge plus, especially if the DEP in NYS installs dB meters (85dB max) all over the highways.
