Is that the one at around £1,035?

I fell for one at £600 inc fitting - at local BMW dealer.   :164:

Even at that, compared with other makes - a tad expensive.   :034:

That's the Akrapovic, bloody silly money.

I have a SC Project titanium/carbon can on the way. Much neater and £430.

Well of course it's all personal taste but to my mind it's too big (and heavy), and a bike with the somewhat bonkers look and attitude of the XR needs a bit of attitude in the exhaust note too. At least the original pops on the overrun, which I find endlessly amusing. Daft I know, but I reserve sensible for the car.

It's an odd illustration, showing the can from the inside.

If anyone wants a new Akra, "bmwbobsandbits" have them on eBay for £849 at the moment.
