Most of the tests are complete now and the first installment of the series will be in the next issue but i still have time for future issues to test any new additions to market or odd ball pipes not yet tested ,, i still need to grab the new v4 bgm clubman , the smaller bore Gori sport clubman the casa clubman and perhaps some low volume production pipes like the RS clubman ,B race, the kegra clubman etc. could be tried too as well as any others you could suggest or think of

Heres a little video of 1 test carried out ,,check out the operating RPM

I don't know Darrell I bought it unused from an add on FB. Externally it is identical to the v3 which I had only just bought from MB except that that one had no paint.

Why are there a bunch of different version of the BGM? Was it to fix that they where loud, falling apart, bad fit?

BTW both my R.S. box pipes are terrific with the correct tune, even the reverse cone is quieter than the others I have tried (including the first BGM).

Well I'm that eager to read the tests I've only gone and subscribed to Scootering for the next year! Haha guess that's what they do it for though...

Regarding the BGM pipe I wonder if they change manufacturer through the versions? I noticed the v4 had the bracket braised rather than welded like the earlier ones that had issues with the bracket breaking away
