It's a nice used system offered to me by fellow member RickM. Has very similar lines to the OEM silencer.

Expensive, but much lighter and much bigger CCA if you're concerned about cranking power.
Not had a problem since !

But only if you have a high quality, modern reg/rectifier combo. (as the Li batteries do not tolerate over voltage)

Re: New arrival - super nice 1000J

Spent some time giving the bike a service, (valves, filters etc) also stripped the carbs down, cleaned them and rebuilt them and it's running nicely now.
Just awaiting the 4/1 too arrive and then it's up for sale.
