BMW make the worst ugliest collector boxes of any of the main stream manufacturers in my opinion, the example on my Mk2 is horrible.

Come up with a solution to clean up the bottom end fuelling their are various solutions but my preference is a PC, turns the bike into a twist and go,because of being able to stay in top gear and still pulls as clean as a whistle.

Good work Colin, are they Black Widow?

I looked at them, Arrow and Arkra. Went with Akra in the end as they seemed to be the only with a balance pipe.

Not fitted them at the moment as I have bigger fish to fry at the moment :-)

They are Black Widow - the quality seems really good and just shy of £400, need to sort the fuelling next but does anyone know if it’s ok to run as it is until I take it in for fuelling ? I’ve fitted the lambdas in the new pipes.

There’s already an 8 page thread about such on here, no lamba’s on mine just bungs in the headers.

Out of curiosity, have gone a different route with my KTM 1290, fitted a cat delete pipe and just disconnected the lamba’s and put bungs in the headers and dongles in the end of leads and it runs really well, although just about to tread the same path as the X/R with aftermarket air filter and a PC.
