    Hi thanks for the welcome, I'm in the AF1 forum I've seen lots of your posts - and it's thanks to people like you I've managed to get my bike mille to where she is now!! I actually did a collector box mod (only one 'crossover') myself using the info on some posts regarding your work, I think there is a pic somewhere ....result ? But I think if I'm honest I still have a very small slight flat spot but it's moved up the rev range. Do you know if there would be any extra benefit of having a 'crossover' as in intersecting with each other like the do on the big american v8's. wether or not this would balance or help with the scavenging effects? I still have a spare collector to play with...Im just running a old Beowulf can it came with at the moment, I wanted to put a austin racing can on off a rsv4 with the exit under the bike but this would reduce the overall length of the pipe and I was advised (rather told on another forum that the exhaust system cost millions of in r&d and that I shouldn't be messing with it) but generally this would be detrimental to performance ??
