Go for at least end cans and decat as they run very hot with cat still in place, roast the legs off ya, but If you can afford a full system and remap go for it

Cans n y-piece (cat eliminator) is all you need (the y piece just releases the full crossplane noise), anything more is daft, you’ll lose bottom end n need to reflash etc.

I dunno - I always found my r1 with the Akra cans and y-piece lacking on spins against my super fast Marquez style friends who left me for dead. The extra 4bhp at the very top end would have made all the difference

Its not so simple, changing the end can will save weight but may on its own result in a drop in BHP, It will need a re-map whatever the change and if your going for it the most bang for your bucks is just the can, the complete system can yield a few more BHP but costs a fortune. Consider a K&N filter and airbox mod as that is a value for money mod as well
