You think RJ blasted that system under the bridge on purpose?

The weight is the most impressive thing about it, I can't believe the difference!
Can't say I like the super long end can, but it really does tidy the bike up underneath.

From the Akrapovic web site they are claiming a weight saving of 6.8kg between the standard system and the same one fitted to RJ's bike with the standard exhaust weighing in at 10.8kg.

Same as you Ozzy I really don't like the end can, I've already got the short one on mine, I could just get the headers, but it would be the stainless steel over the titanium purely because of the cost and you still save heaps of weight, my only concern is how much db increase it will create.

wouldn't you also need the limk pipework to do away with the cat ? Cheapest option I have seen is the austin racing one using the standard headers and there decat link pipe and can at 699. Cheap for a decat.
