I'm of the same feeling regarding my 2013 Racer, I like that Record kit fairing, but paying for a seat I won't use is tough to swallow. Also, I read somewhere that the record kit lowers the bars by 2". Not sure if that's true, but if so, that would be another mod I'd pass up.
I've put the arrows on my Racer, and like them a lot. They're rather quiet, which suits me and my degrading ears. Noticeable performance pick up and the engine just feels better. And they look great. But for someone who wants a little more attitude from their pipes, I'd recommend Mistrals at half the price.
