Remus Exhaust

Wandering if any Tiger 1050 owners have a Remus exhaust fitted, and what are their results?

I have been running Uncle Remus for over a year now...I wanted a low mount can so I could mount a full size pannier on the right side. The Remus (without baffle) worked well with the TOR tune. I recently installed the baffle so I could load a custom tune from a member on that other forum. His setup is Remus with baffle, snorkel removed from air box, stock air filter, CAT removed, no SAI. All I had to do was remove the CAT and install the baffle in Uncle Remus to be very near his setup. Since his tune had the SAI turned off, I just turned it on prior to downloading the tune to my ECU. His tune transformed my bike...I have to be very careful opening the throttle in lower gears...I even had it lift the front wheel in 4th gear at 65 mph recently. Bike runs smooth like it should have from the factory. It is smoother than my carbed Bonnie.

TuneECU is free....all one needs is a cable to connect a PC to the bike ECU. There are links where to purchase the cable ($15 to $20) on the TuneECU site or get one from Amazon.com. There are good instructions on setting the cable and PC up and a link to all the Triumph tunes on the TuneECU site.

There is a separate sub-forum on that other site dedicated to this type activity. Two members have had their Tigers tuned by Wayne at PowerTripp in Alabama, and they have made their tunes available to anyone who wants to try them.

Here is a pic of my bike with the full size pannier on the right side. A member of that other forum in England makes a right hand bracket for the full size pannier, and it is a simple modification...except for finding a full size pannier (Tiger left side or either side of the Sprint ST panniers work).

Here's a better picture showing Uncle Remus without the panniers.... There seems to be a number of happy Uncle Remus owners on that other forum--some with full-size right side panniers and some with stock panniers or aftermarket panniers.

I own a Remus Hexacone and love it. There's a tune for this can at Triumph1050.com forum. Ask around over there. This can, de-catted and an airbox mod will get you another 14hp, or so I'm told.

I have the Hexacone as well, love it also.Im wandering though, if with the baffle in does it create usable back presure? And for that matter does the engine even need back presure?

Brian,

My opinion on baffle vs no baffle is dependent on the tune, not the back pressure. If you run one of the Triumph tune offerings, try both ways and decide for yourself. There is NO comparison between the best that Triumph has to offer in the way of tunes and having a professional tune the bike, IMHO. One person on that other forum that had Wayne tune his bike had a very open exhaust and a K&N air filter. His bike puts out a few more HP than the other person that had Wayne tune his bike...he had a stock air filter and the Remus with the baffle in place. I would have tried the first tune; however, I will not run anything but a stock air filter since I live on a dusty, gravel road.

The HP increase is nice, but the smooth throttle response is the more important part of having a custom tune done on the dyno. Triumph has done a poor job in the tunes department for all their EFI bikes, except the Sprint ST and S3. It may be an English thing...I don't know, but I have a 2011 Mini Cooper assembled in England that has the very same throttle response problems both my 1050 Tigers had.

Thx for your responce, I guess I'm wanderring now if the engine needs any back pressure at all? I remember my 4 stroke dirt bike with almost a straight pipe and talk about torque.

Another happy Remus owner here. I run my bike stock and the baffle in the Remus. I might one day venture into custom tunes and messing with a few things, but I'm very happy as is. The Remus sounds great too.
