    I know u can trick up the RR to look like a SS by chroming it up all over for £2000, the agony of choice eh, let’s hope we see a few on the road instead of itemsof furniture.

    Hello Guys , I look forward to the media testing and good press ! That's why we all hope these things are the real deal perfect.

    Not that it matters cos my name ain’t on the list, but, personally the chrome doesn’t do it for me, it’s the carbon fibre one, hoo eck, that really does it for me, in ways that I don’t think are particularly healthy...

    Mine will definitely get used as it's meant to be, and no it won't be chrome.

    Well, there is our answer. Thought they'd have been in production already.

    Saw and heard the first one built as it was at the National Motorcycle Museum open day today. Stuart garner & John McGuiness on stage talking about it too. Looked nice and sounded crisp but way out of my price range and the riding position would cripple me! The first lot are all sold though.

    A truly great day at the National Motorcycle Museum apart from the cold and wet ride home - would be fantastic if staged at a warmer time of year. I ended up at the bike parking area doing demonstration fire-ups with my modified long open exhausts! Stick that in your short little pipe and smoke it M. Fast Eddie ;)

    Clive,
    What do you mean by "modified long open exhausts", have you made them louder ? if so how.
    I have them fitted and would like just a little more noise . I'm not a fan of the short pipes , they just don't look right to me. (awaiting flak, blah, blah :) )

    No flak from me for either of you. I’d just be wasting my time. Some people are just beyond help...

    Since we're polluting this V4 thread with opinions about the size of our 961 silencers.
    Don't forget, shape counts too.

    My fantasy 961 pipes/silencers:

    My secret is out - I got the factory to build the first section, which normally has perforated tube and wadding, with straight through tubing. Large section absorption silencer as normal. Expanding gasses go round the corner into the main section with a straight line out the back for the higher frequencies. Arrived at design through parallel processing gas flow modelling and 4D finite element analysis. Ok so maybe I just guessed it.....

    Very pleased with the sound - a nice bark but not mega loud for normal riding.

    I hope that Norton boys figure out a way to keep the power above 200 hp with that street legal exhaust system.! You know the first or second thing the media will do is dyno it for the comparo ! I so hope Norton get this right !
