Post Spark SS header/ Ti SBK Exhaust on 2015 and @M GmbH

I am setting this thread up to document the install of the aforementioned exhaust, on a 3rd generation S1000RR.

I had been longing for a Complete Bodis Titanium exhaust, because it's German ( from RACEFOXX.com) with 380 mm can, but @M GmbH changed my mind!

The cheapskate in me, could not resist a great deal!

Folks I can't say enough good things about his (M GmbH) attention to detail. He actually took the time to wrap, the packaging from Italy, in nondescript plain brown wrapping paper, in order to prevent possible theft or vandalism (either through the carrier or other!!!).
Who even begins to care, once they made the sale? Sure there's insurance, but not having to deal with the hassle of filing a claim, simply because, a little attention to detail, on the front end was exercised, lessens the chance of any related issue cropping up later.

I plan to weigh all items removed ( OEM Exhaust, cables, modules, etc.) VS, items installed, via the USPS kiosk scale, and post the images, if for no other reason than personal gratification, and accounting.

At first blush, the system appears to be of very good quality, (welds, finish, packaging, etc), and came with a db killer installed. It will be jettisoned prior to installation on the bike, I guarantee, without hesitation/reservation.

I opted for what Spark refers to as the Superbike muffler (long) as opposed to the MotoGp muffler (short) for personal preference. The insignia on the muffler is laser etched, not a decal as shown on some vendors' photos, which I believe is just a touch more "classy" than a sticker. Yes, I am that "uptight" about certain things, concerning my German Superbike. I mean c'mon, it's not as common a machine as say the run of the mill, CBR/VFR, GSX-R, YZF-R, ZX-R,

It's a proper European motorbike!!!!!

Halfway there for now

Couple pics, been stopping and seeing things that need removed/attention, so my progression is sssssslow.
Examples......horn, bent fairing brackets, front sprocket cover, rear hugger, and wrapping open connectors with electrical tape, then trying to zip tie them inconspicuously.

I've decided I might as well switch over to engine ice, since it will be easier in the long run, to do it now rather than later.

I'm going to weigh all the garbage I took off, but I don't think the net difference will be much more than 10 lbs. Would be nice, but I've got 70 lbs to drop off my own frame, and that will be much more rewarding, and cheaper!

So between the wheels (9lb 11oz) exhaust and Street equipment, (~10lbs) it should be almost as light as the lightest bike I ever had, an sv650, but with 130+ HP and double the Tq (ft/lbs)

Pic of Gilles pegs

The pics on the thread "what you....today?" from a day or so ago didn't show that great, so I figured I try again.

Lightbulb Balls!!!!!

@kruizen and @the_gooch

I have experienced your pain!
That rear servo, was easier to remove because of what the first guy explained at VIR last year, and what Gooch posted here last year.

Thanks to both of you!

Post Weight of 3rd Generation Exhaust

Just got back from the Post Office near the house. I don't know about others, but this one leaves the door open for people to access their boxes, and it has a scale accessible after hours too.

OEM Exhaust
The dB eater is 9.1 oz.

The muffler without the dB eater, but including the mounting bolt that goes into the OEM Right rearset,
8 lbs 6.2 oz.

The bolt is 1.4 oz.

The OEM Header including front and rear servos, actuators, and cables,
15 lbs. even.

The OEM exhaust with the dB eater installed was 23 lbs 15.3 oz. total.

The Spark Stainless with Titanium Can

Springs, header inserts, wide band plug, springs, screws, basically all hardware related to mount the header and midpipe to the bike,
1 lb 12.7 oz

Hardware and hanger to mount the muffler, without passenger
7.1 oz
with passenger, different hanger and hardware
9.7 oz

Header/collector/midpipe
8 lbs 5.4 oz

Muffler with dB insert
4 lbs 2.3 oz

Without dB
Forgot tool at home to remove, will update later

This is being transformed to a track only bike, so the difference is
9 lbs 3.8 oz
using the Spark total weight of

14 lbs 11.5 oz

I am totally surprised, from what I've seen posted for the weight of the 3rd generation oem exhaust, and what I was able to find for the Spark SS/Ti exhaust, my expectation was around 5 lbs net loss. Happy happy joy joy! Thanks again @M GmbH

Pictures of the exhaust mounted on bike coming in next post.

Thank you for taking time to do this. My post office Is the same. I've gotten plenty of strange looks for weighing various motorcycle parts there all hours.
