    Well, still waiting for my Arrow to arrive (think Italy started Xmas early!) so might end up down that route. Have you got the full lot or are you using a different slip-on?

    Akra for power, quality and reselling value.

    Avoid Titanium as the headers crack with mileage (all brands). Titanium exhausts are a consumable in racing.

    Well, the Arrow headers arrived just in time for my garage to shut for Xmas

    The good news is, they are now fitted (along with the PCV) and are running bloody lovely. Fitted with the Mivv exhaust, the sound is gorgeous (deep but not too loud), and the engine is running very smoothly. Not that I've been anywhere except riding it home, it was still -2 when I picked the bike up this morning!
    Dyno shows a slight uplift and went from 203.4hp to 208.9 but I doubt I'll notice it on the road.

    Can't be an ASBO, it's got the baffle in



    The indicator works spot on, I obviously buy the right kind of cheap tat. Thanks for the offer though
