Brucet, is the right side heat a problem of the past after fitting the Acrapovic headers. I also want to go that route.

Yes it is. Bike is awesome to ride now with absolutely no heat on the rear of my right leg at all.

It also is a bit costly Brucet, for eleven grand one can get several of those pipes made up locally - and yes, some will look as nice/good!
I just want to mention this as I'm sure that for some the cost will be too high  ;)

Agreed but locally I was quoted between R6k and R10k for something that they were not sure could be made up to the same standard. I also could not find anyone that could do it straight away without wanting to keep the bike for a few days and my experience with the local guys is a few days turns into weeks always. I also wanted something tried and tested and I really doubt you will find anything locally that has the same quality workmanship, even the stock pipe is not made as well as the Akrapovic for example on the flages that fit to the heads the welds are really rubbish compared to the Akrapovic - it looks almost moulded and not welded.
 It is expensive but its a top quality product and I have absolutely no regrets about spending the money.

The cheapest option I could find would be to cut out the cat and replace with a piece of pipe. (I was quoted "around R3000") and when asked how long you need the bike i was told a "day or three" which did not give me much confidence.

You don't know what the purpose of it is, but you want one!  :imaposer: :imaposer:

That bar you are referring to joins the SW-Motech aftermarket upper crash bars on the standard GS LC.  The GSA has factory fitted upper crashbars that don't use the extra bar, since they are attached to other brackets behind the plastic panels.

Thought it had something to do with more strength under the beak or
something.
