'11 FJR 1300 after-market exhaust

Looking to see if I can make my 2011 FJR 1300 sound like something other than a dishwasher. Love the bike to death but would like a bit of a throatier sound if possible without having to do a bunch of remap and other stuff. I see Beowulf in the UK offers some after-market, any other ideas / suggestions ? Thx !

For a cheap and better sound. Do a stage one Trooper Mod.. or the Stage 2 Trooper mod for an even deeper sound.

I know what a stage 1 trooper mod is, I think, what is a stage two?

I did the trooper mod to my 03 fjr.

Read all the negative comments on here but it was fine with me till I found a set of really inexpensive Muzzy's, which I still use on my 07.

The guy who purchased my 03 with the "trooper mod" loved the sound.

Stage 1 is cutting the welds loose with the drill saw only. Stage 2 is removal of the cut pipe with the dremel tool When you remove the cut loose pipe with the dremel tool it gets much deeper sound and louder. I have done only the stage 1 to mine. Much improved sound without any popping.

You tube has some video of stage 1 only mods and the full stage 2 mod.

Do you really want to cut your stock exhaust? I would hate to hear the "OOPS" Oh crap!! Many, many, after market exhaust, Most do the same thing, it all depends on your budget and how you want them to look. Shop around do some web research. Most can only tell you what they have and I am sure, all will say, they love them and they are the best!!
Good luck, let us know what you choose!!

It's not a big deal if the instructions are followed and patience is applied. The stock exhaust is even better when Trooper modded and tailcones are added.

If you ride in Canada with a modded exhaust system, you can get fined. Just a heads up for those who do travel beyond borders.

The same thing applies in the states- just about everywhere falls into the can be fined category. But it's been my experience if a "biker" isn't showing off or being an idiot or goosing the throttle at 5 am then the LEOs always have something better to do than write an stoopit ticket for an exhaust system.

Perhaps we should have a poll- how many have actually been cited for an illegal/modified exhaust system? If so, where are you? Have you ever been denied registration, etc. b/c of a modified/illegal exhaust system?

Me? I've had a couple roadside chats with LEOs. IMO the last thing on his mind is my exhaust mufflers .

I did the stage 1 on mine. Can't tell and it looks bone stock. But when you start it it sounds much better like it should sound stock. Plus it cost me only 5.99 for the bit to do the cutting.
