Still Pondering Exhaust

Hi John,
I'm in the uk like steve. Our noise laws can be a bit strict although  
they seem to have loosened more lately. I'm prety sure it's only the  
sports systems that have the removable baffles, if the "nexus" has  
them then I've never found them but I will double check !  The "  
nexus" is designed as a sports touring replacement so is closer to the  
stock system. I would think the weight is much the same as well.  
Basically the bike has so much bottom end power in standard trim that  
weight savings make very little difference so manufacturers don't go  
to too much trouble to acheive them ( those that boast of weight  
savings are mostly playing on our immediate perceptions that light is  
better!) I can't add attachments on the phone so I'll send you a pic  
of the fitted pipes in a seperate mail
Whatever happens, sure you'll sort something suitable.
Best wishes Ian
