 Right  :821:
Seen mechanic yesterday (he's more of a welder than mechanic plus hardcore biker) and he recons he'll do the job quite cheaper than delkevic kit and result be the same ultimately and that is my goal.
Dropping bike next weekend as 3 different diameter pipes needs to be ordered and delivered for the job.
Will keep you updated!

Gave up on the idea giving my bike to mechanic as he delayed the date by saying his supplier couldn't match the diameter of the pipes needed so suggested chopping insides of the cat out and re-welding.
I've reached out to Delkevic and they've said they'll be reissuing full exhaust soon as it's been prematurely listed and some parts missing. You've just reminded me to contact them again as it's been few weeks ''overdue''.
I'm not keen on cutting out the insides and leaving the same cat converter as it most probably would change  the exhaust note. I'll go for new pipes instead and do it myself

Do you re-use the back two existing pipes from the exhaust manifold?

Yep the kit doesn't consist of 2 downpipes from rear cylinders for unknown reasons but in my opinion that helps to reduce the fitting difficulty which is what most of us wants.
I'll fit them next weekend, will try and document the process.

Which can did you get?  I ordered the 8" round carbon.  Local shop wants $300 to install, not too bad.  I hope it works with the centerstand.  Also considering ceramic coating as the system is single wall pipe and will change color.
