    I bought the ti header from SC-Project. It is a larger diameter. I had to have a muffler shoo expand the stock muffler so it would fit.
    MUCH lighter and though not loud, sound much more robust. The motor now sounds exotic. Its very intoxicating.
    I also had the ecu reprogrammed. To along w that the tq increase is quite noticeable. It made a fun bike even more fun. Bike has a good personality.

    Thank you. Better that is in that location than the muffler. My 2019 CRF450L had the Cat in the muffler and it would get so hot it almost melted my soft luggage on my tail rack.

    Are there any error lights or any other problems running without the CAT?

    Can absolutely confirm your experience.
    You will like the complete combo with the rallye muffler.
    Including db-eater it is not louder than the original exhaust system.
    My ecu is not reprogrammed, i did not want to risk worse mileage. Has yours turned worse after reprogramming?

    They need a rear rack to tie to. I looped the straps under the tail for a temporary tiedown (havnt got a rear rack) but I wouldnt want to do that all the time.

    Yes. There is an error light. The obdII pigtail should be here today so I can clear it out w/ my scanner
    No other problems at all. Runs amazing. So smooth and no popping on decel.

    I am excited for the rallye muffler. I don’t like loud,but I do like a quality sound.
    I haven’t checked the mileage nor ridden lots of miles since the improvement. But what I have ridden, I didn’t notice an increase in consumption.

    Thanks. Was trying to avoid putting a rack on the bike.

    So what is the smallest, lightest tail rack out there? B&B or something else?

    I did. I had some some pics but my phone is hiding them from me at the moment. I mounted them to the bike when it was stock, no issues, they sat very low, which was nice. I added touratech pillion bars, which makes them sit a bit higher.

    Thanks
    If you get a chance, I would be interested how you strapped the center section to the tail, or pics of it on the bike.

    I have the rear compact rack by bandb coming. https://bboffroad.com.au/rear-compact-tail-rack-yamaha-xt690-t700-tenere.html
    I havnt got a pic where you can see the rear strap. But I think you can see it sits too far forward here. Also, it slides further forward in rough roads.

    This one I think, unless it only works with his grab handles in which case it might not be the lightest. At one point he said he would have a solution to mount just the rack and avoid the side handles.

    What pressures were you running. Theyd need to be reasonably low to get a pinch. Have you repaired the tyre to see what the cause was?

    Adventure spec is pretty tiny.
    And they come in blue, red, white, silver and black.

    For me, it had to be B&B because its even leveled with the passenger seat. Didnt mind the shipping costs to germany
    Upper picture shows the support bracket that bolts with the normaly unused subframe of the tail section. Had time to kill and drilled some weight out of the support bracket which comes a little too solid/heavy as stock from B&B. The Black side fairings need to get a little notch to fit the bracket, but its easy work with a Dremel an cant be seen afterwards.

    I ordered mine from the US site.
    Took about ten weeks to get it, but they stated up front that they were out of stock and were busy making more.

    If you're gonna order from ProCycle, call them and make sure they have them in stock.

    I ordered my AS skidplate from them (online, no indication for "out of stock" or "backordered") and a couple days later got notice that they were backordered.
    Had to wait about 10 weeks for that one too.

    Don't know.

    My gf shreds on a moto. Street and dirt.
    Passenger pegs get removed on all my bikes within minutes of ownership.

    Width is perfect. I had similar length on my KTM 1190R and had no issues touching the ground.
