View Full Version : Different exhausts on '01 vs. '06 Dakar?
Can anybody tell me if the exhausts on the '01 and '06 Dakar are the same or not?
Thanks in advance :)
you mean the downpipes or silencers?
i think the diameter of the twinspark post 04 models ,is a bit wider on the downpipe and silencer.
I think the left hand silencer tailpipe on the 06(twinsparks) is blocked off,whereas on the earlier single sparks it has a small opening.
The twin spark down pipe from the engine is 1mm larger than the earlier model!
Notwithstanding... I fitted a pre 2004 Remus to my '04 Dakar :eek:
I carefully measured, and cut off the front of the Remus with welded on clamp, because it wouldn't slide over the original front pipe, so that when in situ it was a 'but fit' to the orginal header pipe... the two pipes are exactly the same diameter. Short piece of stainless tube inserted inside each to act as a sleeve, then the original clamp fitted over the joint. (needs a bit of padding out to make it a tight clamp type of fit)... hope you know what I mean!
Now done over 40,000 miles with this mod, no probs :thumb2
Have a look at http://www.adventure.gs/F650GS-Dakar.html
Same as Micky (who advised me it could be done :thumb ). I have a set of 03 Remus cans fitted to my 05 Dakar. For the sleeve I went to a local tube manufacturer and had them swage out a 75mm long piece of s/s tube to fit snugly into both header and tail pipes.
Reason for my question is that I´m currently selling my Sebring silencers w/o catalyzer. And a fellow GS'er with an '06 model is interested.
So I conclude that a small intermediate pipe is all that is necessary for fitting on the ´06 model.
Thanks for all your replies :thumb2
