The picture was after I first installed it, because it’s titanium it has started bluing to match the header!

I reused the graphite gasket that the instructions tell you to discard, other than that it’s very straightforward.

Honestly I may never upgrade the muffler, it sounds great and looks pretty similar to a lot of aftermarket exhaust options.

I thought about doing the same thing last year. Looks good to me. I just had spare exhaust parts laying around and pieced together my exhaust.

That looks nice mate. I agree with you that the stock muffler does look nice and it is almost the same weight as after market ones. Not to mention that by going this route you save a lot of cash.

Yep, paid $250 at SportbikeTrackGear. They even give you $12-15 in rewards (store credit) when you buy it. In the end I have a great sounding titanium exhaust that does the bike justice.

I have watched different dyno graphs slip on tuned vs full tuned, almost same hp but the way they get there is very very different. 2 diferent bikes...

there is a reason you don't see race bikes with stock headers.
