So far I have added the Graves 3/4 exhaust, KTM tidy tail, K&N air filter and Akra map. Tech Spec tank grip and Rottweiler Stage 2 SAS removal kit added after this photo was taken. The Graves exhaust sounds amazing but is way too loud for trackdays at my local track so I had to purchase an aftermarket DB killer which should pass. Planning on installing the Rottweiler stage 4 intake this winter and replacing the mirrors eventually. Other then that I don't have much else planned besides enjoying the hell out of it!

How do you compare the graves exhaust to stock, seat of the pants? I went with a bodis mid pipe and the promotional akra slipon on my 2015 and b4 the akra download there was a significant loss of grunt I noticed on my 40 mile ride to pick up my K&N filter and new map, after that the 90-100% humidity made comparisons tricky but, on cool dry days that bike was a freakin' monster!
I like the RG scratch protectors better than the power parts piece that came on my se.
Enjoy

My bike's AR GP1R can hammers-out combustion pulses just a tad too loud at idle so an Arrow Ti can and resonator mid-pipe are going on soon which will bring my SDR's weight loss to 35+ pounds. :mrgreen: Light is right...! I scored the Arrow parts from a forum member in Canada and will sell the AR can.

Here is the new Rottweiler exhaust servo plug that is going on my bike with the above-shown Arrow mid-pipe and muffler. On the '17 SDR, when the factory exhaust butterfly valve and cables are removed, this part installs in the butterfly valve servo and prevents the bike from throwing trouble codes and going into limp mode. ;)

The Rottweiler Servo Stopper is installed and my cat unit is removed. I fired-up the SDR in my basement garage and it is UNGODLY LOUD straight out of the headers. My wife upstairs said it shook the house and sounded like the end of the world... :mrgreen: No codes when I started the engine...yet! :lol:

The cat assembly, as shown, weighs 11.8 pounds by my digital scale.

Why didn't you completely remove the entire servo assembly and cables? I removed mine when I put the complete AR system on. I forget all what I did, but I don't have any codes or lights flashing.

The cables ARE removed. As you can see above, they remain attached to the removed cat. Adding a servo stopper to the servo unit was an easy way for me to avoid trouble codes/limp mode. It worked--no trouble codes. No flashing lights. No limp mode. 8-)

Hum, I wonder what I did? I removed everything and don't have codes or limp mode going on.

I don't know what you did...software/map-disabled ECU servo-check function?

I just took everything off. I do have a PCV with a map from Rotti? I've never had the dealer disable anything in the ECU? Hum.

Is your Rotti map in addition to an Akra map?

Yes, and Boom now that you said that, that makes since as I assume the Akra Map would factor in Exhaust Valve removal. Thanks for helping with my stupidity

A short-term memory lapse is a looooong way from stupidity. You're good. ;)

My Arrow titanium muffler and stainless DeCat mid-pipe bolted up easily, fit perfectly and sound delicious. It is a 'straight-through' system now and still fairly loud but not harsh...deep, crisp. By my digital hand scale, the assembly is 10.5 pounds lighter than the factory cat and muffler. Life is good! :mrgreen:

Thanks folks. I bought it very slightly used through this forum in perfect condition from 'BigBlock' above in Canada. He was great to do biz with--truthful, honest and quick to ship. :D
