There are two modifications you can easily make. Either of these mods is compatible with the stock fuel injection maps.Mufflers with these modifications make less noise than Two Brothers mufflers.
Get a ½" to 1" metal-cutting hole saw and about a 12" extension for your electric drill. About $10 at Home Depot.Run the hole saw into the exhaust outlet and drill through the baffle about 10" into the muffler. This will make your mufflers somewhat louder.
Also, you can drill out holes in the end cap of the muffler. You can stop at step , or . Here, all the material has been removed for maximum change. Personally, I stopped at . This mod will also make your mufflers somewhat louder. Pictures and directions by Rick @ macdizzy.com
Unlike the VStrom 1000, the 650 has only one muffler, so if you have soft saddlebags there's no good support for the left handbag. My soft saddlebags on my DL650 were hitting my rear tire at times, which is not a good thing. The left bag also drooped, which is not very appealing looking from the rear. So, I made a support bracket. I bought a couple galvanized pieces at Home Depot - a 2"x 3' piece, and a 6" x 6" L bracket.
I bent the long piece so that there was about a 1" section to bolt to the rear fender, then about a 4" section standing out from the rear fender, leaving the remaining 2½' going forward parallel to the bike centerline. The bends were both roughly 90degrees - I had to reshape the 1" section by hand a bit to get a good fit to the rear fender.
I used a fender washer, a spacer, and a nylon 6mm bolt and nut to attach the L bracket to the rear passenger peg bracket. I then mated the L bracket to the long piece, drilled a couple holes, and used silicon caulk as glue and a couple 6mm nylon bolts to attach them to each other. I cut off the excess from the 3' long piece, about 8". I then drilled a couple holes in the 1" section and the rear fender, and used a couple 6mm nylon bolts to secure the bracket to the rear fender.
I then removed the entire contraption and painted it, once with Rustoleum grey primer, then once with Rustoleum satin black. I've done 1000 miles with it now, it works great. Total cost: 2 pieces of metal, about $5. Two spray cans of paint, about $10. Various nuts, bolts, washers, I had them laying around my shop. Figure another $1. 85% of the paint was left over.
I use and highly recommend Nelson-Rigg SB-900 33 liter Touring Saddlebags, shown above. With the support bracket the left bag hangs more or less vertical. The pair of bags on the bike is just about exactly 36" wide.
