Hi guys. I've just had the hitchcocks decat pipe fitted along with the modified centre stand. I already have the dna filter & plate, fuel x Pro and a hitchcocks silencer.
The performance was ok as standard and then with the first wave of mods improved the rideability of the bike. Well, the decat pipe is excellent. Firstly, it does Increase the exhaust note to a deeper tone while saying at a non intrusive volume, although it is a noticeable increase.
I only rode the 5k straight home from the dealer as it was pissing down and I wasn't wearing waterproofs, the route is hilly and immediately I noticed the bike had more oomph. It certainly felt like it was holding the gear longer and to a higher degree until I needed to change up. Also, pick up on the throttle was more efficient and obvious after I rolled off.
The centre stand is just a solid, functional replacement, all good.
I think I have the performance where I want it now. While it'll never be a speedster it's much nippier up to faster traffic speeds. Which for me was my only hangup as I often need to pull out of my home and onto a fast road. Mission accomplished.🤣
Cheers

This is a good thing to hear (no pun intended). Do you mind sharing the cost of accomplishing this for those of us who might have the same set of mods under consideration?
Hi Frank. Yeah happy to share. I've spent £600 on parts and about £120 on fitting. So just over £700 in total. Considering the price of the bike it might seem expensive but I now have a new bike which I believe is a keeper, running just how I want it to.
Cheers
