Glad you all like it. Extremely happy with it and glad I took the advice of the guys pointing out that the F4 should keep the 4 exhausts.

I'll post the indicator mods when I get the bike back. I intend to put flowing LEDS behind the mesh so will see how that goes.

Update

Got the bike back from Pro Race and managed to do a quick video. It's a really bad video so apologies for that, it's pretty cold here in the UK and the bike isn't properly back together.

The video really doesn't do it justice. Bear in mind the cat is still in the bike. I'll try and do another video that looks like it wasn't filmed on. 1990s camcorder

I haven't been on the site in a lil while and this was a nice treat for me. Thank you, the exhaust is beautifully designed and fitted. The sound is great! I wish we had sportbike exhaust builders here in the US like that. Cars yes! But I haven't seen ANYTHING like that come out of the US. Bravo dude! You have the only one in the world!????

Thanks man I absolute love it. There must be someone in the US that can make custom exhausts?

Indicator Mod

So you can see where I was with the exhaust and I didn't want any turn signals/indicators showing so I found a way around it that I'm really happy with(not everybody's thing though)

Here's the video: https://youtu.be/9ITzXaUedwI

Included some images as well to show what I've done.

As you say, not everyone’s taste.

Have you considered the lack of visibility to other vehicles?
Don’t know what it is like where you are, but we have a serious issue with SMIDSY crashes (sorry mate I didn’t see you).

I'm in the UK and they are very bright. No way at all I would use them otherwise.

If for.some reason when we go out and people I'm with are not happy with them then I won't hesitate to change them up.

I quite like that solution. I currently have an integrated rear tail light but keep being told by my MOT tester that these will not pass next year so this could be a good solution.

What have you used? Links if possible.

Cheers

I have an integrated turn signal/rear light but never wanted to use the indicators, just wanted the clear light, sooo...


The ones I used were these: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/293292935354

I thought I'd start with cheap ones and if it messed up then no big deal but they turned out to be really really bright. You have to cut them down a little but it's simple enough to do. All I did to fix them was put 2 clear mini (2.5mm I think) zip ties at each end which you can barely see. If you guys come up with a better idea though please let me know as I'm not a massive fan of zip ties in this situation.

Edit: they are flowing indicators but unfortunately the more you cut them down the less of the flow you see.

I did the same mod with the indicators although the stock 2013+ are LED so you can actually must make a small bracket and use the OEM on those bikes.

However, they don't comply with the construction and use regulations which are not to be confused with the MOT regs which are different. Only the police will assess to the C&U regs. The MOT station should only be checking for the correct 180mm separation, as I think the manual still says that the position (apart from spacing) is not part of the assessment.

Exhaust is sweet though

Apologies to revive an old thread but the bike has come along a bit.

The latest mod was by an awesome forum member @dansoarr (thanks very much)

Pictures included.

Glad you like the seats, finishes off the look. The Alcantara does not stand out and steal the show, but a great detail 😁
