HUGE thankyou to you both (and everyone else for their valuable advice) for helping me source a superb new exhaust.

the akra arrived this morning hemi,cant believe how quick that got delivered to me buddy.
thanks a million for that mate,its in fantastic condition and in its original packaging with strap and springs!!Clap

soon as the link pipes here,ill get some new pics up,just got to get the paddock stands now and give her a good clean.

massive thanks once again to this brilliant bunch on here that make this forum the best by far
it really is a huge decision behind going back too aprilia as well,the great banter/support/back up on here.

havent been as happy and buzzing in a long time!EmbarrassedTongue

lol.it would have without these guys buddy,
i knew what i wanted,but couldnt find any arrows/akras/leo vinci,
really struggled to find anything tbh other than the sp engineering/viper/quill/a16/pipewerx ect.
all good and had them on a lot of il4's,specialy s.p engineering (think i paid for daves holiday for the last 3 yrs ffs lol)

but this is the nicest bike ive ever had,and comes with bling i could never afford on a bike before so i wanted sumat a bit posh for the old girl lol.

fek all going 2nd hand on ebay for these bikes,which was a shock.
thanks everyone for their invaluable advice and keeping your eyes open,
and to mark and warren for looking after me.

thanks mark,appreciate you going in specialy to get it posted my pal.
thanks so much you 2.hugely appreciated.Clap

got the addock stands now,got some oxford ones for a great price,
was trying to order the harris ones but they wanted sizes for the holes in the bottom of the ohlins and circumferance of the rear bobbins ect as their hooks are quite narrow,like their own bobbins they sell
i was gunna end up with sh*t that didnt fit front or back.

the oxford ones feel very very sturdy and weigh a ton lol,unlike some of the crap on ebay that are made of dairy lea cheese ffs.
did the job perfectly.

just got to get the exhaust swapped over then give her a damn good clean,
got plenty of degreaser and some putoline matt cleaner stuff.
see how that goes lol.

gutted to see i missed the italian bike day at cmc chesterfield too on 2/9/18.
usualy good days.Cry

Looking good. It should feel good if you've never had the collector mod done before, have you ridden it yet?

sensible move mate, I spent the first 4/5 months when we first bought our house doing the bathrooms and garden to keep the missus happy. To be fair to her though I spent a load of money on the bike before I bought the suite, got the bike road ready then I've cracked on again not ridden in almost 6 weeks but now the kids are back at school Monday and Tuesday are all mine. 
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

yea mate,was dying to get out on it,but the weathers turned crap anyway now.
ive a lot of jobs to be cracking on with,stuff to put up round the house,
garage floor and walls to paint,a huge garden 360 deg round the house too landscape somehow,
1 grass cut fills an empty green wheely bin ffs,
concrete drive to sort out,decking to do,patio to put down,trees too plant lol.

not much chance of getting out.
