Congrats mate, but no help here I'm afraid, as I had them fitted prior to getting the bike, have the standard set sitting in a box in my spare parts room! From what I heard from a couple of lads with Katies I've met, that did replace the standard cans, yes, you do find a marked difference in performance. (Maybe due to the necessary, different mapping too?:confused:) Noise levels increase as well of course!:D
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!:thumbup:

I've never ridden the KTM, but I know what the standard cans sound like... Then I met Weejack... When he rides in front of you, it sounds like your chasing a spitfire around Cumbrae...

:thumbright::thumbright::thumbright::thumbright:

Enjoy!

Sorry, can't make tomorrow :( I'd already committed to doing a toy run for the local hospice :angel9: I know Gordon's done Thetford before and said it was good.

Have a good time though!

Right then , the cans are now on !!!:D

The std cans were an absloute B*st*rd to get off, I ended up cutting the bolt heads off with the grinder ( they're made of chocolate anyway) and will remove the studs from the std's at my leisure.

I dropped one of the cans on the floor narrowly missin my foot (they weigh a ton !!) and Marcin snapped away with his camera, recording the carnage :D:D:D.

With the bike in bits a thourgh cleaning and treating with 365 and wd40 will see her all protected again. :thumbup::D:D:D.
