    I was not charged any activation or installation, but if you review the KTM PowerParts listings (and my dealer invoice agrees) there is a SKU and price for the *software* and a separate SKU and price for the *switch*.

    The Wings slip-on is 5lbs, 8-1/2oz with the dB killer, and 5lbs, 3oz without the dB killer (5-1/2oz). This is for the complete kit with carbon fiber heel guard.

    The Wings muffler by itself is 3lbs, 14-3/4oz with the the dB killer installed.

    That is correct. The software is $229.99 MSRP Part # 63500980000 , the Combination Switch is $84.99 MSPR part # 76011270100

    The dealer gets charged (to their parts account) when the software is installed on the bike. They can choose to charge or not for the labor to install the combination switch and the software. Half an hour of labor to install the combination switch and software is not unreasonable.

    No, just the associated hardware needed to mount it.

    I was checking out that sc-project exhaust that nowadays has.
    They have 3 different versions on their site. This one sounded the best to me


    Bit out of my price range and I’m just window shopping at this point. Would love to hear the wings. Have one on my 690 and love it. Bit of extra sound without it being too much, while still having a reasonable cost

    Your link just goes to the main Coober site, and I couldn't find any article like that there. Could you provide a link to where you found that, and the associated discussion?

    I definitely don't want to damage my bike. I'm frustrated that Rade and Coober have such opposing narratives regarding the decat - Rade saying it's absolutely no problem, and Coober saying it's a terrible idea.

    Rade said they'd be posting more information soon... Hopefully before mine ships so if the info isn't convincing, I can cancel my order haha.

    Go on facebook, they have details and additional links..! Coober has a partnership with KTM and they share plenty of information unlike anyone else I have researched. KTM USA will in fact still honor your warranty when utilizing them...

    Thanks, found the post, but Facebook is ridiculous and won't let me really share it cleanly here. The dyno graphs are very telling:

    The main reason I am changing the exhaust is for sound. Second is for weight loss. Picked the Rade because it's basically half the price of the slip on systems from Wings or Akra (outrageously priced frankly).

    It's funny that Rade really doesn't talk about or show pictures of the resonance chamber in the part description. it seems like that may be the trick to making a catless system work.

    I wish someone would make a conversion pipe to the cat that make it possible to use any aftermarket 990Adv silencer.
    I believe it's actually possible even though its tight due to the passenger footpeg.
    It would be a hit I'm sure, might have to try to do this of my own this winter with my old 990 Mivv silencer if no one comes up with one...
    Any manufacturers listening and taking the bait.. ? :lurk :wave


    Have anyone changed the hard grips to softer (less viby ones) on the Powerparts heated grips ?
    It's the same grips as the original really hard ones and my hands go numb after 15 minutes... never experienced it this bad on any other bike before..
    Is it even doable witout destroying the heat element...

    Ah... Just watched the Rade video again. I didn't realize they made some changes to that midpipe to somewhat compensate for cat removal.

    Well, in for results.

    I went with 790 DUKE pipe as it is much smaller and lighter... custom connector pipe
