I didn't realise thats, cheers, thats sweetens the deal even more....

Yeah I like the Titanium systems, full, I had one on my Brutale, I like the Akrapovic or the Yoshimura....

Ok so in order I am thinking of getting one of the following systems. Advice would be great..

1. Akrapovic full system or slip on?
2. Youshimura-if they do a full system.
3. Jardine full system

4. Leo Vince
5. Two Brothers

Exhaust cover
K&N filter

Thoughts please??

Why a full system? The stock headers actually flow quite well.

PS: Be advised that the oil filter clearance on some full systems (i.e. Akra) is quite tight.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

The titanium headers on my Brutale were about 2kg lighter and the performance was considerably better.

Thanks, I didn't realise that.

Whay would you be leaning towards?

A quality end can such as Leo Vince, Yosh, Akra or similar. If you plan to track the bike expressly, a full system makes sense. A slip-on will suffice for the other 95% of a typical rider's needs.
