    Hi mate, it looks like you have an Akrapovic can and link pipe. The rest is the standard system. All you do is unhook the lower pair of springs and slide the can and link pipe off together. The original silencer and link pipe are one item and can't be separated from each other but hook onto the lower system in the same way. There are loads of cheap standard pipes on ebay and it's only a 10 min job to swap over at Mot time

    My Kwak has an Akro, and all I do to get it through the MOT is to refit the removable baffle. There has never been a need to refit the original can, as it only has to pass a noise test, not emissions.

    My RSV is too new for an MOT, but it's also fitted with Akros, so I will simply do the same as I do with the Kwak. ;-)
