Hi all, I have been in conversation with the guys at Max Torque Cans here in the UK (www.maxtorquecans.com) and they are interested in adding a new bespoke design exhaust with a slash cut finish for the Bagger and I am going to lend them my bike for a prototype. The question we have is would you prefer to see them in black or satin stainless?

Ross, that is great !!! I would do Black like the Remus. I have to say that Max's customer service is excellent. Martin replied to my emails very quickly and answer all of my questions in a very fair way. They do care for the customers. I would buy from them. Price is fair as well. I just need to see few more options, if they will come up with in the future. If Max can come up with something like the 101 or close enough, they will do very....very well. Thank you for doing this with them. Please keep us posted.

Thanks for the encouragement, it is good to see that companies like Max Torque are keen to cater for a small market segment like us B keepers and I am grateful for the contributions other forum members. Don't forget everyone that they are happy to post their products abroad :grin: Watch this space for further info.

Yes please keep us posted... I grow tired of looking at the black remus cans, that I feel have to skinny of a profile for this bike with a huge price tag

My 2 cents. I would like to see black and with 6 exhaust tips so when you fly past someone they know they were blown off by a 6 cylinder. Flaunt it if you got it!

Hi All - I have spent an interesting day at Max Torque having the prototype end cans fitted to my bike. Martin and team did a great job, it is always a pleasure seeing skilled people at work and they make a good cup of tea too :grin:

I have attached some photos and a video of the sound they make, to my ears it has a lot more base growl than the stock set and they are probably at least half the weight. The noise out on the road is so much better than the stock, not too loud, but much more noticeable and gives the bike more presence >:). Please remember that these are the prototypes and may not be the final fitment and we didn't put the heat guards back on. I have suggested putting a longer feeder pipe on to move the can back to level with the end of the pannier like the stock ones, which Martin is going to look at. They are going to do a set with a black sleeve and silver pipe and silver inner end for me so watch this space for updates. He also offered a satin or polished silver option. Feel free to make comments and I'll pass them on to Martin - Cheers Ross

Hi All ,
Good to see that our company is getting some good feedback and reviews, we always try our best especially when it comes to customer service.
I have joined the Forum so I can keep an eye on customers requirements and option choices but will rarely be on here to answer questions , so if wanted please contact our normal email address on our website Max Torque Cans. com
We thank Ross E Bagger that has helped us out with his bike for the new design development and soon his bike will have the first set up option of Satin Black powder coated exhausts with satin link pipes.
I hope most people are happy with the new design we have developed ( tbh, as soon as I saw what was available I knew something new had to be done ( both design and cost wise)). and were looking forward to helping this biking community out.

Regards
Martin
Max Torque Cans
