The Kawasaki KLR650 has a renowned reputation as a rock solid dual sports bike. Since being introduced in 1987, it has only undergone two major updates, the new model KLR650 encapsulates an intuitive and well thought out improvement by Kawasaki. The KLR reminds us that an open road and an open throttle is not only a simple pleasure but the best way to travel.
With the new updates to the KLR650, it has come packaged with a weight increase. When designing the Sports Muffler for the KLR we focused on reducing weight and increasing power. The standard muffler on the KLR has a very small spout, so to allow exhaust gasses to flow better we designed a larger spout that is approximately 4 times larger than standard. The Staintune system also removes the catalytic convert giving the KLR a deep exhaust note and an increase in power output. To maximise the torque of the Kawasaki KLR we used a 44mm core, the smaller diameter assists in creating better bottom-end torque. The standard system tested 88dba, whereas the Staintune system tests at 94dba. Listen to a comparison between the standard KLR650 note and Staintune's sports muffler here.
Our design resulted in a 3 horsepower gain over standard with a more responsive throttle. The on road test of the KLR650 fit with a Staintune Round Sports Race Muffler opened up considerably through the bottom end.
Overall, as a rider, you will experience much nicer rideability with a deep exhaust note. Truly turning your quiet and reliable bike into something you want to show off to your mates. To watch a review on Staintune's KLR650 system, click here.
