Hi,

I was wondering if there is a dual exhaust for the 690SMC? Like the akra for the earlier smc's?!?

Grtz and thx

i'd rather have a single, less weight, just as long as it makes the most HP's and considering the SMC is only 1 HP less than the SM, makes sense to stay with a single

you could have bought a leftover 690SM and saved $1500.

I like the look of the dual cans also, but looking at the bike, the plastic subframe & gastank was molded to allow room for one can, not two.......so they would have to be mounted elsewhere to make it look good.

seems that this bloke made his own duel pipe setup, it looks that way anyways, the tank looks glassed... ?? not too sure how he did it. either way i dont see a huge gain by doing this , other than the bike looks rad .haha

Take it from someone with dual exhausts ('05 625 SMC), stick with one if you can. I guess to some it may look cool but there's no perfomance advantage and it's just more weight. On another note, thank God we in the states don't have to have those big ugly license plates. I mean, that guy goes to all that work and money to put those duals on and then he's gotta put that speed limit sign on the back. That thing is hideous! :headshake

agreed 100% no performance gains ,i dont plan on doing it either, but a job like that deserves to be seen by all who own 690s, lol

in the event of a hard crash you have the possibility of replacing two high dollar cans.. :headshake
