Anybody tried these. Personally I think they are the best looking I've seen for the xr. (The matt black ones)
They sound good, at least on the youtube video.

They look nice but I don't know how they would sound.   I am sure you would get some weight savings but to me if you are also not getting some horsepower to go along with it I would pass them up.

I agree with Tropo but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I think mine looks its best when it has been round the Alps for a couple of weeks.  It looks used.

From what I have heard from the guys here a full system is your best bet for power and wallet reduction.

Yep, but then so do I, so maybe they're ok. :008:
But there does seem to be a liking of big lumps of metal.Like fgdriver said it's subjective.

I like this end can too but at £650 (plus shipping) for the black version with the polished end pieces, I think this is a tad expensive. £200 cheaper and I'd go for it!

 Yep. Tad too much for me too.
Put a MIVV SUONO on. Nice (quiet, even without dB killer) but lighter.
Still keep looking at the Cobras though.
