    Had the bike a week now...desperate to get out!
    Have to be honest; so much better than my 2018 XR 👍.
    Got Akra decat and planning to have it flashed after first service! 🤩

    Very nice indeed.
    Was the exhaust an option or did you get that fitted before delivery?

    The silencer is the standard titanium can that comes with the Sport pack....dealer supplies and fitted the Akrapovic headers for me! 👍

    Very nice bike !
    Funny how the rules are different from dealer to dealer and country to country...
    My dealer told me that I will void my warranty if I fit the Akrapovic headers.  :013: While your dealer even fitted them for you

    Yeah, thats exactly what i was thinking. Would have loved the full system as not confident enough to do the full scope myself. But informed the same with respect to warranty etc be void if going down that route.

    Dealer fit so becomes a dealer problem if need be. They didn’t quibble at all....they’ve also done previous bikes of mine including full akra race system on both my RR’s when I had them 👍

    Have no doubt they would look after me if the situation came round.

    Looks smart.  Are the radiator and oil cooler guards standard?

    They are the OEM BMW ones fitted at factory.

    The drive chain looks so much smarter than the awful oem standard offering, I hate my chain so it's going after only 3000 miles for either An RK or top spec D.i.D , the RK is a good bit more expensive. Pics to follow.
