Anyone installed the delkevic headers?

Not that I have heard of yet.

The merge collector looks nearly identical to that in the 5th gen and 6th gen kits.  It is not really a performance oriented design, if that is your goal.  You might save a little weight by dropping the catalyst, but I don't think I would bother unless your OEM headers are damaged in some way.

IIRC "Candyred" pointed out several weeks ago that the overlap on rear downpipes is the wrong way around.. 🖓

Thanks for the info. Guess they just threw it together. Hopefully someone will come up with an option that's actually thought out.

I did install them. My original headers got heavily corroded, previous owner rode bike in winter time and salts unfortunately eat them and other parts.

So i had to replace all exhaust system, restored radiators and replaced rear thermal guards. For thing to be done right way, I installed Power Commander and autotune. Unfortunately O2 sensor on autotune was faulty (bought it second hand), so i wait for replacement to arrive next week. After that ill take a ride to nearest Dynojet center and will polish things up. After that ill gladly share any power gains (or loss) and impressions if you like. Now bike sounds like nothing before, beefy base not to loud, but all who listened do appreciate. I forgot to mention that bike is equipped with Akropovic can from factory. Did quite big work with bike, made full suspension service at company who has suspension testing stand. After that bike feels amazing and i can compare, did arround 6k km last season around Europe. Fitted with Micheling pilot power tires that also adds to the great feeling.
