GPR FURORE NERO

Post by catman78 » Mon Mar 26, 2018 9:43 pm

Hi All,

Few pics of these on SMT. They seam pretty good coming from stock. Very light and sound is nice. Not too loud. Using them with DB Silencers in.

Installation:

Fitting the bolt through strap then through stock rubber ring was a bit difficult at first. I ended up using a clamp to hold it in place while I threaded on nut. Not much space to work.

Best to leave three bolts to flange loose while securing strap.

Also, I had to cut down my 6mm Allen Key wrench a bit to fit inner bolt. The bend in exhaust is tight.
No big deal. I believe I could have used old bolts from stock.

All in all I'm happy.
Price was $530 shipped to NY.

Very nice...."stealthy" looking :)

I have white ones on mine, very nice finish, so much lighter and cooler running. They will quiet down as packing settles, almost too much, so I'm not running Db killers.

Word of warning, if you strap soft bags on the tail rack, they might get burnt (ask me how I know :) )

Did you have to remove the OEM heat shields for these or did you just do it because you wanted to?

I'm interested in this setup for mine, and as cool as the new cans look, I want to retain the factory heat shields.

Great writeup and install tip, btw. Thanks for sharing!

You won't really need heat shields anymore. Cans won't get as hot as to burn you, if that is your concern.

Exhaust fumes coming out on the other hand will melt your shit :)

It's not my concern - I actually just like the way they look. I know i'm in the minority there, but I think the luggage support brackets look better in front of the factory heat shields than the way they float in front of the aftermarket exhausts when they're removed. That's all.

So could you have installed this new exhaust and keep them? And where did you order your GPR setup? I keep seeing them for a bit more money than you spent on yours and really like this option.

Thanks!
