Thank you. It is more easy to fit them, only thing you need to do is cut the srews a bit shorter.

That exhaust looks dope!

But I also do like the mirrors... they don't look like typical bar ends and they're not alien antennas like the oem one but they do look darn good.

I would welcome your thoughts on the mirrors and exhaust vs. stock when you've had a chance to compare.

i will try to make some videos with exhaust sound a bit later today, mirrors are worse in visibility terms, i think and theres a lot of moving joints so i expect some problems with that aswell, but let me use them for a few more days and i will be able to give better comparison.
My dealership told me to put exhaust before my first service so that they can fix stuff i will do wrong and remap if necessary, so more information on wednesday

Hi.
A little update on the mods i put on the bike.
So mirrors are holding up good, once you get used to them(takes a few days) they are not shaking or falling apart on the move, in terms of visibility they are smaller but again i got used to them and don`t feel any difference now.
Exhaust is holding up aswell, first service passed and the dealership said nothing so i assume its all good from technical point. Removing the baffle is a bitch, you literally have to remove silencer to get it out or back in. I tried and it was loud, and too much popping/backfiring(flames included) so after one day i put baffle back.
So here is some crapy video of sound with baffle in(ofc in live it sounds better)

Thanks for the video. Would have loved a vid of some flames too

But it does look great and I'm sure the video doesn't do it justice. It does sound really deep though. Probably sounds a lot better when you really wind her out in the high rpm ranges?
