    Just an update.
    SW Motech center stand has been a pain. Bouncing off road to the point the bolts fell out on a trip to Kanchananburi. The mine that Goran mention in his thread. Fortunately, the nut fell out as I stopped at the hotel.
    I eventually got around to changing the pipe. After considering the Zard which is never in stock. The Akro and Arrow, I opted for the classic style of the Termignoni. Personally, I don't like the sport ones on this bike.
    For anyone interested in the sound. Here is a clip.

    Well that sounds Bloody Good! Massive improvement on Standard! Did You have to Remap it?

    No. If I opt for the complete system I'll remap it for sure.

    The standard seat can be adjusted in 2 heights. Honda or Touratech also offer lower seats. Or an upholstery shop can adjust it for you.

    When driving the bike doesn‘t feel heavy at all, as the weight is well balanced. But yes, when standing or lifting it on the main stand, you definitely feel the 240 or 250 kilos.
