There are very limited options for an aftermarket exhaust for the CS.
Laser used to make one. Not much literature available on it though.

Check this out my fellow riders…. Just installed a new Remus Exhaust on my 2003 F650cs, had the header ceramic coated black, and just finished putting it all together….
I started the bike and everything seemed fine, but after a short ride around the block, the rubber water tube in front of the header started to smoke ( almost looks to have started to melt ) so I shut off the bike. The header seems to be on really well; I also made sure the gasket for the header was on… The header gets really hot in that specific area, not sure what to do, I don't want to melt that rubber water tube…. Has this happened to anyone before… ? Please advise if anyone has a suggestion… Did I not check something or do something right? Do I have to take the 650 in to have the computer adjusted?
Other names that get thrown around are staintune, scorpion etc. If you have anything to share on these options, please email moc.liamg|GBB056F#moc.liamg|GBB056F
Supertrapp still makes one (if you can find it. Little secret: Supertrapps can be ordered through Harley dealerships - more on that later). Adventure pipe used to be sold as a kit, but Roger stopped making them. The adventure kit used the supertrapp can, so you can still assemble one on your own.
xxaarraa/LocalRider Exhaust Mods
xxaarraa's inspiration for an exhaust mod was localrider's bike. Local managed to get a hold of one of the last adventure kits that were sold for the CS. xxaarraa's kit is essentially a copy of local's kit, except I assembled all the pieces on my own. Local's close up pictures of the components and mounting mechanism was invaluable in getting my neighborhood body shop mechanic to understand how to fabricate some of the bits. Mad props to local for being a good CS community citizen!
Ever since I saw this, I wanted one purely for aesthetic reasons. I love the upsweep of the can that completely exposes the single sided swingarm. I knew it was going to be loud, but didn't care.
Here are all the pieces you need that you would now have to assemble yourself since adventure doesn't sell the kit anymore (pictures and text courtesy localrider):

Yes. It would just be the midpipe and I would say $100 is rather conservative. But when it comes to less than that you will be pleasantly surprised. Be aware that there may also be the need to fabricate a length of steel to support the SuperTrapp. I will link some pics shortly so you can get an idea of how each piece connects as well as how it is "hung" from the rear foot peg hanger.
EDIT TO ADD:
Right outta the box, minus the hardware to mount

Summitracing.com. They are on backorder and I have an 8/1 shipping date. $185 shipped. Figure another $100 for a custom mid pipe, you still cant beat that.

Change of plans. Summitracing kept pushing the ship date out and out so I cancelled the order and called supertrapp directly. They dont sell directly, but recommended Custom Chrome, a Harley distributor. CustomChrome sent me a catalog and I got the can I wanted, which I ordered through my local Harley dealership. Paid slightly more for it than what Summitracing was asking, but they got it for me in under 3 days. I got the exhaust today and you are right, a steel plate needs to be fabricated to support the can. The can and end cap cost me $285 and from the looks of the pictures, the midpipe and mounting plate might be way more than $100. If only I wasn't in love with this damn set up, I would have abandoned the idea long back Ill let you know once its done. Thanks for all your help.

Thanks Local, this is awesome!! I got the exhaust today and you are right, a steel plate needs to be fabricated to support the can.

Yeah it does. I was assembling the discs and end cap this evening and I came up with this:
Does that seem right to you local? I went with 6 discs, how many are you running? The kit came with 18 discs!
**Posted: Fri Jul 27, 2007 8:38 pm **
OK, taking inspiration and notes from LocalRider, I got my supertrapp mounted today! This thing is properly LOUD, it is going to take a while to get used to the BRAAAAAAPPPPP. I went with 16 discs, but its still LOUD. The original exhaust is a pig, it should weigh at least 20-25 lbs. Glad to lose the weight and the clumsiness.
Thanks Local, for being patient and sending me all the photos and instructions. The mechanic appreciated your close-up photos, it made his job so much easier. He only charged me $60 which brings the total to $350, which is reasonable. I'm going on a trip today, so Ill post once I get back on how it performs.

I recently coated the original exhaust and my new Adventure Pipe with that high temp coating. There is a company here in Utah called 'High Performance Coating' and they did a great job. They coated both pipes for $95.00, of course this does not include shipping. I live here so I was able to drop them off. Their web site:
So, here are some pictures of the finished product. The whole deal worked out great, I was very happy…
