Cheers. The screen is the BMW tinted screen. The headers and tail tidy have transformed the look of this bike. :028:

According to the Akrapovic site, the headers and silencer make a total weight saving of 6.4kg. That's impressive.

It is, bet it pulls better as well.

Cats are the work of the devil so I'm sure you'll see some extra performance

I can't wait to find out! :007:

Removing the cat has certainly transformed my GSA and previous GS's!

I'll see how the XR performs, and if it needs it, I may take it along to Geoff at Hilltop for an update next year.
