I got them at some point. I found them really good on paved roads. I never really had any issues, no matter how fast I rode, so basically I never reached their limits. I am also doing some gravel roads and always felt a bit insecure with them in those conditions but I never actually had an incident or a slip that I didn't expect so it was probably more of a mental thing than a reality.
I've changed them for a Mitas E07+ to cover more for the off-road part.
The only negative that comes to my mind, the back got squared a bit too fast, although I admit using them too much on the highway and in the city so I can't really blame them, still I think it happened a bit too fast. Otherwise, I think they are really good so if you ride in that 90/10 or 80/20 I think you are doing the right choice.

I got my ct last week and today it was returned to the dealer due to multiple issues I was refunded today.

But I have a few parts I had purchased for the bike

A brand new delkevic back pipe

Brand new side stand foot extender

A brand new set of hand guard extenders

Can send pics if needed

Yes been working on sorting it out. Bike thru a code , 76 for Throttle Position Sensor. Replaced it and hasn’t improved the rougher idle. I put an R&G exhaust band protector on the can. I have a feeling I overtightened it and maybe damaged a baffle.  Problem started first ride after installing the band. Probably going to buy a new Delkevic X-Oval Titanium slip on and see if the resolves it. Seems odd, but mine CT is only one I’ve ever seen with a discolored OEM exhaust can. Discolored like it over heated.
If you've damaged the can, it's not odd that yours is the only one that you've seen with a discoloured can. If you've distorted the path of gasses or restricted the flow, it's going to overheat parts of the can and in the case of restriction, also cause significant power loss.

However the photos do appear in the gallery under "Recent photos"!

Quite how I've managed that, I really don't know!! Photos have always baffled me on here!

It definitely looks like there may be a restriction or rerouting of exhaust gasses. Have you noticed any performance change? If not it may be the latter cause.

As an update on my comments above, I've now got the Powerbronze hugger in place.  I am well impressed!  However, the Powerbronze hugger does not extend downwards as my old Pyramid one did, to keep muck off the suspension parts.  So I cut up the Pyramid and fitted the lower half in its original position to get the protection, and mounted the Powerbronze one as normal.   I'm delighted with the result.  The PB one is so neat and effective.
