That's some exhaust! Is it a custom job?

Wouldn't bother. Your money is much better spent on some RST heated gloves.

I've had a couple of bikes with heated grips. Fine for taking the edge off for short journeys, but useless for longer trips or sub-zero temps. Plus; any glue you use will soften or dissolve with the repeated heating making them loose.

Although I use Keis heated inner gloves, with body warmer too  :190:

Are they very loud ? Or do they have a DB killer?

no they are not too loud they have a really nice rasp with the baffles in, I ran it 200 miles last week with the baffles out , it was no louder than any other bike with a much deeper tone, I have the baffles back in now , happy with the sound , at least cars have a chance of hearing you, much better than those large eyesores that come with the bike ,

Thanks just what I needed to know, what really appealed to me is the weight saving, as i’m Looking to take my bike on rack behind my motorhome any weight saving is a bonus.
