Good deal?

Hi folks!

New to this forum. I've been riding other brands of motorcycles for years and I just switched to the K1200RS. I bought a 2002 with 23,000 miles on it. LOVE IT!

I've got an opportunity to purchase a Ztechnic titanium exhaust system (used) for $500. It appears to be in decent shape (cannister looks good, header is a bit tarnished, but might be polish-able).

Given that I've already got a 2 Brothers system on backorder at my local dealer, which way should I go (I can cancel the order on the 2 Bros and get my $690 back ......got a good deal there too).

Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Good deal

Congratulations on your purchase of a K12RS. Great bike. Personally the 2 Brothers pipe is loud as hell. A friend had one on his Honda 900RR and there is no way I would ride behind him. Just too damn loud. I would recommend going stealth. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the other pipe. Have fun on your new to you RS.

better deal

Save your money for new suspension. If your new K-bike doesn't have updated suspension this is where your money should go. IMHO.
