    How would that look and sound

    Why would it have to be modded

    I think it's a home made conversion of the standard belly pan. You'll probably be able to see how the sidestand hole has been extended up and backwards if you look closely.

    Get those rusty bolts sorted with some stainless steel allen bolts. They are cheap (compared to the titanium stuff) and will tidy your bike up nicely. I get mine from a guy called boltmeup on fleabay. I don't buy 'kits' just small bags of particular sized bolts (and nuts) that I need.

    Change of plan

    I'll probably still swap the exhaust with someone, but

    After being out tonight, I've decided that the Mille is deff not for me, so it's it's either getting sold or swaped


    Plus, I wore earplugs again when out tonight, never again...it was one of the weirdest, strangest most unpleasant feeling I've had in a while, so god knows what I'm going to do with the other 25 pairs!

    Exhaust wise, nothing yet but see what happens

    Bike wise, as above

    Earplug wise, as above

    I was wondering why you feel the bike is not for you? What did you expect from it that it did not deliver? Seems like a potentially expensive decision to make this early in your relationship with it.

    Rob basically I'll never learn (as she says too ).....a couple of years ago I had a mate's 99 R1, after about 2 months I thought fk this, it's to low but I'll try and keep with it....but no!. Went to something more upright, but missed the sports so got another (00' Blade this time) and again, to sore (on the arms and wrists) leaning over.

    It's not the bikes, they are what they are....it's me...I'm a that want's something my body now says no to

    I'd seriously about Variobars or the top yoke conversion (as I mentioned before) but just dont know, the air pad I got from Cowelly works a treat, it's just the lowness of the bars.

    I know it's maybe daft wanting to swap exhausts when I'm talking like this, but I'm trying to see if anything will help me keep it, but because I dont like wearing earplug, the cans (to me) are quite loud and get annoying....I do like the rip off them though, just not the style....catch 22 an all that

    Seriously though...I think my days on sportsbikes are done, unless I can convert it to Tuono'sh then I'm fkd

    From what I understand it's not the can noise that destroys the ears , it's wind noise around the helmet.

    If you want a more sit-up v-twin maybe you should get a Tuono or a Falco or a M*nster.

    Both....especially at speed

    I know...see what happens

    To be honest, I'm not getting the v twin bug, I like it yes, but I could quite happy go back to a 4, it doesnt bother me

    Yea still got them, thanks but I've got a full standard set up

    Ideally what I'm looking for is either a complete one non standard can system or one that'll fit on the standard downpipes

    Nah I'm not sorted, I've pm'd a couple but not had word back yet

    If the Scorps as loud as the 2 harris's it'll probably do my head in on journeys as tried earplugs but just dont like them

    I'm waiting for someone not far from me to get back to me regarding his Evo can (think that's what it is) and take it from that

    Is there any chance of a vid or somehow be able to hear it...I know mind you, that what you hear through speakers isnt the same as real life, but can give a rough idea

    its a modded collector that gives the same power as a twin system i sell them on here and other aprilia forums ...the ti cans were an option from new made by akrapovic...
