    Get ready to supply your neighbours with earplugs. I have heard @Nat67 pipes - and most everybody local did too.

    What headers will you use?

    Not sure how the Shotgun compare with the outlaws I have ? Mixed experiences here with DP, but speaking personally , I'm really pleased with mine . I've had them a while now and they are holding up well . They polish up good as new ! Just about to mate mine with a set of CES headers , booked in with the Dyno on the 30th of April so will keep you posted . Decel pop with the outlaws is more of a decel flashbang quite impressive in the dark !

    I am hearing you Nat. I loved mine but the neighbours didn't like them as much as me when I went to work at 0430h each morning. Nice pipes though

    :eek: 4.30 . Bloody hell that's still night time! I can understand how that could be a problem . If I am leaving early or late , I push my bike out of the bat cave and down the road slightly outside of the fellas house who let's his little rat of a dog **** on me lawn , then I give it beans . Karmas a ***** ! :sneaky:

    I'm sticking with the stock ones for the moment, I'm new to the R3 scene, so was more interested in the sound and the look for now. As I get more used to it's acceleration and torque I may start to look at the headers. TBH, my next step will be the rear shocks. They live up to their name....shocking! Years of being in the front row of a rugby scrum has taken it's toll on my back and I find the OEM shocks really jarring over patched up/potholed Brit roads. I will be after advice on which ones are recommended by you lot soon!:thumbsup:
