I have a chance to purchase an inexpensive Staintune can for my '16 GRiSO. I haven't seen much info around on these. Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions.

I'm really not a fan. It's a generic can adapted to fit a Guzzi, doesn't work very well and sounds like a fish farting. I'd love to recommend an Aussie product but for Guzzis nowadays are pretty lame.

Well, I have a 2007 1100 and mine sounds fine without the baffle - looks good too ....IMHO of course.

I also have a high level Mistral which I think spoils the bike lines and am looking to sell if anyone might be interested?

I hear great things about Staintunes-the quality, the looks. But I hear nothing good about them and Guzzis, which is why they are frequently cheap.

Avoid.

I bought one for the 1100, but that was in the dim prehistoric times of " Pre Guzzidiag" and there were no other means of altering the stock fueling that I was aware of, not that I could afford it cause Id just bought a brand new Guzzi and muffler FFS. With the stock map and dbk in it was no great improvement over stock. dbk out was no good. however with Beetles 1100map it was not too bad and went and sounded better with dbk out. But alas the muffler carcass cracked around the bracket..... I consigned to the shed rafters and there it will stay.

Used to be the "go-to" product for a lot of bikes and usually freed up some HP for simpler engines (ie 2V Guzzis). Can be thunderously loud, and as Pete says, like a wet fart. I passed up on one when I purchased my RCM from GT - which came in at about $30 cheaper - just because no-one else had one. Had a map built for it and now, old "Black Betty" roars, for those of you that have heard it - me likey

When I get the bike back to together I'll post my thoughts on the sound. My theory was at the price I couldn't not buy it, it was cheaper than a used stock pipe off eBay.

I've had every generation of the VFR and I always installed a Staintune system on those bikes. It was a worthwhile improvement in engine output (anywhere from 5 to 9 HP per the dyno with a proper tune) and the sound was similar to a well tuned Chevy small block V8 with glass packs (note: I kept the DBK's in). They were more expensive, but the fit, finish and performance were hard to beat for the street ridden VFR V-4's.

Hope to read your ride report soon, Jhtjon.

I've still got a few weeks till the Doctor clears me for riding. Apparently, my plate and screws in my humerus have not fully set yet.

Staintunes are great on other bikes but have a poor reputation on Guzzis.

Except for the V7 - excellent - fitted to the V7 Classic - freed up the strangled mid-range marvellously - quieter than the Agostinis, Mistrals & Arrows, more expensive than all of them. I prefer the sound to the Mistrals on the Special.

Had staintune on the Trumpy T595 Daytona , performed and sounded great.
Be interesting to see how the GRiSO likes it and sounds.

They look similar to the ones they made for the 1100 Sport & the V11.

If I pass through Bellingen on the way down, I'd like to call in to Staintune - to check up on the progress they have made on the headers for the V7. A set for the Special just arrived from Agostinis - $900 landed; Looks good, but wont know how well it works until I get that bike down here to fit them.

Surprised no one picked up on the black painted "y" pipe cover. It was a little bashed up in the accident so I hammered it as smooth as possible sand blasted it an high temp wrinkle finished it.

I did see the black Y-pipe and was about to comment when you expressed your surprise... Smile Anyway...I think it looks just fine and in fact complements the surrounding black pieces. Well done!

That was my thought exactly, it blends in with the starter cover and other items
