    Question exhausts.

    I have a 2001 1000r with the standard dustbin can. The bike also came with a titanium Arrow can marked Valter moto, an Italian after market firm.
    Has anyone heard of these and is it road legal?

    The only other marks are what looks like oak leaves on the rear of the can just above the outlet. Looks like the sort of victory garland they handed out in the old days. Anyway as I have still got the original, then MOTs are not a problem. I read the comments on likely police action if stopped, so not too worried.

    Thanks. Will run it as is and revert to standard at MOT time.When you got your fine did you have to change the can and report back to police.?

    Can noise is down to the MOT testers descresion, i've got a local MOT centre run by bikers, never a problem with a race can

    BTW you can get replacement rivet straps that have a BS number on, off ebay
