    mooching through fleabay I was impressed with the GR Moto advert.At £200 they are cheap but if you look through there's a dyno read out showing a slight increase in power, plus they state their can fits with centre stand as well as  panniers.
    i am not buying just yet, but struck me as a deal -an Akro can cost 4 times as much.
    what are your thoughts?

    For myself, I’ve always been happy with the OEM exhaust. Got a great sound (others have commented) and another 2 BHP on top of 127 really isn’t going to make me go that much faster.

    I have a LeoVince. I live at the German border and they are pretty strict with exhausts and if it's good there i'm safe everywhere.
    Just a little deeper sound and a good look.

    Im with you Murphy, i think its got an nice sound and looks good IMO. Ok it maybe heavy but i cant say that bothers me.

    Thats said, i think the Scorpion cans look great.
