I commute daily and thus far very happy, little louder than Akropovic. It feels like the acceleration is better also from lower refs, worth the money

Speaking of the Mongoose tailpiece, I simply love the end cap that is machined from billit aluminium (instead of being made from sheet metal).

And yes, its sounds awesome. Aggressive, like a dog with a crisp and decisive bark.

Transferred all farkles onto my new LC:

(crashbar plugs, rad guards, headlight cover, crashbar bags, heat shield, larger footrest, screen stabiliser)

Prepped top box for rubberising the inside.

1, Removed stickers
2. Used surgical spirits to remove gunk Nd glue.
3. Gave it a light fine grid sanding.
4. washed it nicely and letting it dry.

First coat most likely will go on tonight.

Battling to get my electric pump to work as the CANBUS trips. Decided to add a temporary Brad Harrison plug to the frame. Not the most elegant solution , but it works! Also easy to reverse . Held on by a cable tie.

I saw the farkles Edd added to his Bike and got hold of JABO. Collected orange spot covers and radiator guards today. Fitting is very easy. These items are beautifully made and the care and packaging are signs of someone with an eye for detail and an excellent product. Cannot wait for the bash plate to be available for my BIKE.

Hey Doggone

Great mods.

Where did you get the orange spot covers?

Glad you like the mods.

Just a note. I've heard that some  radiator guards could void your Warranty with BMW. I would phone them to make sure if it was me.
