To the ones of you that did this mod, did you end up remapping the bike?

Ive ridden mine a few 100km now and to be honest I don't feel any lack of power, but the sound has definitely changed a lot.
The bike pops and crackles a lot more, or maybe its just more obvious now......
When suddenly closing the throttle it sounds like a shotgun.

The bike is surprisingly less jerky at lower revs, but even though the bike runs smooth, the sound is sometimes changing as if the bike would be very jerky.

It sounds mean but I was thinking about having the bike tuned.

Just wanted to know if someone else had done something after this mod.

I'll see if I can't have a video made and uploaded within a day or two.

Good effort there, thanks Noggie.  Your video makes me want to visit Norway too...

Hi all, yes, I know - this is an ancient thread.

I'm gathering parts in order to do this mod. I have the headers (bargain at $170 Australian) and they came to me without the rr bracket that goes behind the sump. I managed to order it new from BMW, shipped to Aus for $90 including GST. That's 50, so not too bad! Part number is 18 51 8 548 855 for anyone who needs it.

Now I just have to source a slip-on. They're fucking expensive here! I'm tempted by the Graves carbon one

Great thread, BTW!

This week I fitted the RR headers and a Racefit Growler. The slip-on doesn't line up with the R rearset (I have HP rearsets, not sure if that makes any difference) so I just made a short bracket out of Aluminium.

Install was a pain in the arse, the bottom rad/oil cooler bracket is hard to remove and refit, plus it's very tight behind the radiator, especially on the left side.

Initially the bike felt rough and down on power, so I have a Rapidbike Evo on its way... But the more I ride it the better the standard fuel system seems to be adapting. It's as smooth as ever, but I still think I'm down a few BHP.
The Racefit is VERY loud, so I'm running a cut baffle. Hopefully it won't affect the top end too much. I haven't been revving it out as I was riding without the bracket that attaches to the rearset. Now it's firmly attached I can give it some more revs and hopefully the fuelling will adapt some more. Or I'll just fit the Rapidbike unit.

Here's a pic. The standard R cables fit without bending anything. My bracket isn't great, but if I spend some more on some nice fasteners it'll spruce it up a bit.
