On my A9 i replaced stock with Beowolf end cans. Sounded great and were not too expensive. I have a FAC now and am thinking of doing the same to it as the stock end can is a bit quiet.

any suggestions for the FAC Model?

Bit off topic BUT... has  any one else heard the  chatter   about the police getting NOISE activated speed camera style kit
It seems that in the peaceful lock down country side noisy bikes are becoming more noticeable.
Also parts of Switzerland  are banning all bikes from parts of the country at the weekends
i expect other EU partners may follow the lead .

Oh and I know we are out :mfrlol:

On my first mk2  biffer I had a Leo Vince. I was very happy with it.
Check out my YouTube video......
I'm still undecided as to which exhaust for my current one. Thinking of Arrow though there's a waiting list due to Covid affecting production in Italy.

Easy apart from removing the cables from the servo, which again was easy.
