It wasn't available when I collected the bike around 8 weeks ago but on a visit to the UK last week, it had just arrived and I picked it up and brought it back here to fit.
It looks reasonably good but it is big. Not as bulky as the standard exhaust but it's still big.
I thought it would be similar to the Akrapovic that I had on my K1300S but that had a Titanium finish and was much lighter. The new exhaust comes with a catalytuc converter and the blurb says it doesn't meet type approval if it isn't fitted, but I left it out anyway. Minus the Cat it weighs in at 5Kg which is a saving of about 2.3Kg over the stock item.
The exhaust note is hardly any different from stock.
It's a little bit fiddly to fit. Removing he stock exhaust just requires loosening the clamp holding the exhaust to the link pipe, and removing the bolt holding it to the hanger. The Akrapovic has a link pipe which fits over the Cat - assuming you fit it which I didn't - and you need to clamp this to the exhaust at the right angle so the 3 bolts which hold the Carbon Fibre cover line up. the other end of the link pipe is clamped on where the stock exhaust was clamped on. Best thing is to leave the clamps relatively loose until you've got the CF cover in place and then tighten them up.
I'm not sure whether I'll keep this on the bike. I have a Brock's Predator slip on on order which should arrive by the end of the month and I suspect that even with the DB killer in place it may make a nicer sound than the Akrapovic. I also expect it to be quite a bit lighter.
