Yes great choice,
i have the same on my F3 800 RC.
As you are aware they come with 7 different baffle options.
Heres my thoughts on them.
Always install the large baffle which fits into the pipe joining the box collector,if not its too loud and sounds awful.
You then have 2 sets of 3 end baffles which fit into the end of the 3 cans.
The ones which are curved at the end make the bike the legal limit and will be ok for trackdays but in my opinion are too quiet.
The remaining 3 straight through ones are which i used but for a better sound i left the middle one out.
This way you can still hear all the induction noise but when wound back it rasps and sounds the best.
Great quality peice of kit and glad i payed extra for the Titainium as its gone blue.

Spokes don't come on the Brutale RR just the dragster RR.. But if anybody want to trade some red/black spokes I'd be up for it..

Exactly my set up and experience!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Sorry but I'm not following. Would you mind snapping a photo. My Alka only came with 3 extra baffles.
