Just ordered a few goodies for my S3R

This HAS to be the most beautiful exhaust I've seen so far, so one is on it's way to me!

Thanks Guys!

The tail tidy arrived yesterday and was fitted immediately. I really like the R&G stuff - high quality, good instructions, and easy to install.

Still using the OEM indicators but they now look a little out of place ... smaller LED indicators next??

Yep, the exhausts are not symmetrical, the RH can is an inch higher. But they'll disappear when the HP Corse pipe arrives, can't wait for that!

The bike is resting on an Abba stand, also a nice piece of kit.

Hey Key, not my garage but the spare bedroom I was using at the time. Much water has passed under the bridge and it doesn't look like I'll be returning to the Middle East.

Finally got the time to fit the HP Corse exhaust and boy, does it sound SWEET!!

Most guys who fit after-market cans usually remove the rear foot pegs, but there's a chance that she-who-must-be-obeyed will jump on the back so I'd better be ready for that. Still need to fit the rear sets but that's for another day.

Great exhaust!

Did you import it yourself?

I've read that it's difficult to get the right tune for a Triumph 1050 to suit that exhaust- any problems?

The HP Corse ss cans are made by hydroforming, i.e. no welds and this gives a very thinwall ultra-lightweight design. Exactly the way an exhaust can/silencer should be made IMO.

Thanks for the nice comments!

I've only done about 20kms since installing it and the performance feels very similar to that with the OEM exhaust, so at this point I'm not sure that it needs another tune. Some guys on the other Triumph forum who have fitted the HP Corse have gone for the Arrow low mount tune but for me, the jury's still out. I'll keep researching though.
