I would also like to see that. All that plastic looks so bulky.

I can't find the picture I saw of what's behind the plastic cover, but it ain't pretty....

So let us know how you get on! But, in a corollary to your position, I'm getting the tubeless wheels first! Before I add sound and power I want less violent deflation and easier fixing whilst on tour!
Which tubeless wheels are you looking at?

Well, the decision is made, deal done and money exchanged.....the full Arrow (homologated version) system has been ordered. Glad to see Arrow have revised their power/torque gains up a tad, but that's just a happy extra. It's all about how feking sexy it looks to me....

Thanks to Jonathan at Rugged Roads.

Sorry - I missed this question!

I'm looking at the Alpina wheels. They are pricey but you can spec them to look pretty nice (or pretty horrible!) depending on your tastes. That have a pretty responsive dealer in the UK who has answered all my questions so far.

I tried to post some details a couple of times but for some reason admin withheld my posts and, as usual, they don't reply to questions from their ivory tower!

Looks good - I'd be grateful for an installed pic!

I'm going to buy this too, there is maybe a discount for AT forum members?

I looked at the arrow system in the flesh and in the end went for the full Termi set up. It sounds lovely, like the standard but a bit louder but with a real rasp at the top end, it also pops and crackles a little bit, which is nice. However the main reason was the standard and fit which is fantastic, it literally took 20 minutes to fit with everything lining up perfectly and it just suits the bike better in my opinion. Another factor to consider is that titanium and off road bikes don't usually mix well, if you are just going to pose about fine but there is a reason all the Honda works dakar bikes went back to steel, all the titanium pipes cracked. Don't get me wrong titanium looks lovely but it's a swine to repair and isn't that much lighter in the grand scheme of things.

I just ordered the arrow stainless steel headers. Will have them fitted with the standard silencer for now and will probably change the silencer at a later date. I want to take it step by step.
