    Yes. I wrote a really long reply to this and then it dissapeared.

    Try this:

    thats for titanium thats not toatally fooked, and unmolested.

    as for your "race only" issue, why not cover them with some ebay E1BSAU stickers as shown here:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BSAU-EXHAUST-s...item45f79fd48c

    failing that, it is possible to polish out the markings, and i would knock the use of a dremel, it can be good with the right attachment and polishing compound....

    NickyBoy, just be aware that if you run the bsau stickers or polish out the "not for road use" the police may do you for them if found to be illegal. Now thats not to say you will be done but its worth knowing the risks beforehand.

    I polished my race use thing out in a matter of seconds with a polisher attached to a drill, you can't really go wrong.

    P.S. Envious of those shotguns! I narrowly missed out on some on ebay last year!

    Allright guys...

    Can anyone tell me if the Air Pods from a 2000 Mille R will fit an 02 Mille, are they all the same, are the 2000 and 2002 front fairings different or is it just the -99 models that had the different front fairing

    Cheers - NickyBoy
