    Agree with Cyclopatic,those led have a internal circuit board,when something is wrong they will flash or stay very low

    Heyho,

    I had the same problems with the LEDs (first left and then the right LED died). It is somehow an issue with water coming in the fog lights from the back. I had 2 replaced under warranty and the new ones are slightly different and have another serial number/part number.
    The lights are https://www.kosoeurope.com/beleucht...rora-led-nebelscheinwerfer-schwarz-e-geprueft

    kind regards from Germany.

    My right foggy has been smashed up a bit. Don't expect it to last much longer.

    With the Barrett mufflers fitted the RHS heat shield will no longer fit as the mounts for this heat shield is on the muffler itself.
    The last trip I went on I had the zip on the bottom of my pants undone to allow air to circulate as it was pretty hot. Yeah, of course the back of my riding pants got a nice burn mark in them as they came into contact with the exhaust.
    This will not happen again.
    A couple of bosses were made up and bolted to a piece of flat MS to keep the face of the bosses square while they were tacked onto a couple of hose clamps.

    The clamps were removed, bosses welded on and reinstalled back onto the bike.

    a piece of 3mm aluminium was beaten into submission and bolted on using the standard heat shield mounting screws.

    Are the Barrett's much noiser than stock? Also, how much to they weigh comapred with stock?

    Cheers.

    I had mine put on at the dealers before delivery so not much help to you. The heat shields are steel and weigh a bit on there own.

    But, at the end of the day, I managed to get a pretty picture.

    I'm very keen on the Barretts, but being on a restricted bike it wouldn't really be that beneficial for me as I wouldn't be able to apply the appropriate map (not to mention modifying the exhaust would probably void my insurance!)

    My dealer indicated they sound a treat and as per dnf says, save a bit of weight.

    Yeah cool. Would prob look at going for the single exhaust mod too when I get a muffler, then get it tuned. I'll get the 2 into 1 pipe thing that was mentioned a couple of pages back.

    What's the deal with 2 mufflers vs 1. Is there any particular advantage with 2 mufflers, apart from that's how the factory wants it? Like, more torque or something?

    Oh, and Creechure, I see you got yours at A1 too. Mines there atm for a service and warranty work.

    The price difference between the barrett silencers and the 2-1 conversion is nearly the same.
    The weight saving is quite a bit more with the 2-1 conversion (7.3kg compared to std) and it also free's up the left pannier mount for a tool tube or 2.
    I believe the standard set up is to allow the use of the cats inside them as 1 silencer would be far to big. I may be wrong on that one though.

    A tool tube would be great. Didn't even think of that.

    I have 2 fitted to the left pannier frame. it carries most of my puncture repair and a stand for propping the wheels off the ground as I removed that heavy centre stand (3.2kg)

    Thanks for the reply!
    I am going to get them replaced hopefully soon, cause this moring i started de bike to go to work, and heard a "clunk" and some ratteling, it sounded like a bearing lost all his balls..... and were flying around.
    To bad both SWM dealers in belgium are closed on monday... so i already send them an email, that i al has to be ASAP.. ( i don't like riding my bicycle to work in winter.... or summer. ;) )
    It should be under waranty, cause it's the 2018 model, and has less than 20000 kilometers on it.

    I always feel bad when my bike is broken.
    But i am a bit lucky though.. cause i did a 1000km trip to london last weekend... and all went fine.
    So it could also have happend when i was abroad..

    IIRC looking long time ago on Leo (Arrow?) 2 vs 1 pipes for TE630 that 2-silenser was making more power through the range.

    I'm putting 2 china akros which are 1.2kg/$35 each; 2-1 midpipe would shave ~1kg at most and would cost alot more than $35. Hopefully quieter too this is a travel bike.

    Have to disagree with you on this one Cyclopathic.
    The china akros will blow apart very quickly ask me how I know.
    The mid pipe and quality silencer easily adds more power and make the bike quicker to rev or alternatively the barrett pipes. The china akros will not be quieter i've tried them.
