Exhaust upgrade

I have just bought a new 2019 G310R to return to biking after 15 years. I like the bike but not too impressed with the sound of it, especially at low revs. I’m not a fan of noisy bikes but this does seem a bit bland. Can anyone recommend a not too noisy and UK legal exhaust upgrade?

I found a you tube video and this system does sound good - a few more questions and sorry if these have been posted before on this site!

1. Is the system legal?
2. Does it affect the warranty?
3. Is there a UK stockist?

Any help appreciated

Michael.

Assuming Dominator here.

1. Depends on local legislation, it does not contain a catalytic converter and is loud without DB-killer(must be ordered separately).
2. It should not as BMW now offers Akrapovic exhausts as an option. The only way to get a definitive answer is to contact your dealer.
3. No, ordering directly from Poland is easy and very straight forwards.

I would imagine that the Akrapovic exhaust is the one to go for, although it’s not cheap.

I have a Duke 390 and the same issue, the Akrapovic is £500 ($800?) which is a lot of money for an end can on a bike that only cost £4,000

The CAT stays and there’s no need to alter engine tuning.

But it’s still too dear for me.

Also, take care as if you fit a decat pipe and/or aftermarket can, your insurance could be invalid if you don’t tell them about it.

Believe me, if you have an accident and they can find a way to get out of paying, they will.

Most insurance companies are fine with end cans, mine said it was fine, but if there’s a claim of “improved performance” they didn’t want to know and said l would need to “find insurance elsewhere” !!

Hello, I put the Akarpovic complete system on my GS310, from day one it's been way to loud. Spent the last 3 days modifying the silencer tube. I added a 8 inch pipe with about 80 3/16 holes , also put a small amount of stainless steel pot scrubber pad,made a world of difference.

The level of noise definitely comes down to the individual. I fitted the Akrapovic stainless steel version to my G310GS, and found it not too much louder than stock so had the DB killer removed - beautiful rumble now, albeit a little loud at higher revs but nothing compared to bigger bikes/harleys.

Did you use the baffle that came with the system? That puts it in legal limit. You probably just voided any warranty on the exhaust and reduced performance to below stock. Might as well have left the stock exhaust on. I have the carbon fiber model (without baffle installed) and it is not too loud if you are wearing a helmet. If not, definitely put in baffle it comes with.
