    Re: My Gen 3 S1000RR

    Bit of an update from me. Decided to move the arrow on, although I loved the way it looked the sound wasn't quite right for me. I always loved the look of the HP4 Race akrapovic, but seemed like you could barely get hold of them.

    Then I spotted one on ebay, which just so happened to be from Lee Johnston's IOM TT bike, and was the full titanium race system. Fitting was pretty straightforward, and I absolutely love the way it sounds.

    I also managed to get hold of some HP rearsets, to say I was shocked to feel how much the gear shift changed is an understatement. The change feels about 10x more positive and direct now, makes the bike feel so much nicer to ride and so positive. I love the way they look too.

    Mine was an eBay special. Think it was £80 or so. Required a bit of Dremel work to make it fit nicely. I wanted one without the hole, as all it seemed to do was flick mud all up the back of the bike.
