Congrats on the bike @Whoosh
What other accessories and/or modifications are you planning to do?
Hi @DuneDuc I have fitted the full termi exhaust and had the evo flash. Upgraded the filter to DNA and also fitted the evotech lower cylinder head protection along with front and rear spindle bobbins. I have also installed the larger R&G frame bobbins too. I might change these to the crash bars as I'm not sure on the look of the giant bobbins! Seat cover coming too. Tires - either Motoz Rallz or Adventure depending what's available.

Bike looks GREAT! I’m getting the full Termi exhaust installed next week. Can’t wait. Can you tell much of difference in power after upgrading the exhaust?

Hi. I picked up the bike with it fitted from the shop so have no real comparison I'm afraid. Sounds delightful and saves a load of weight too as well as the increase in torque. The sound alone must be worth a few bhp!

Looking good, some pictures of the seat when you have it done please🙏.
Now as for the exhaust, called my dealer, he said £1600 for slip on.
Full Exhaust £2200, for that you get, air filter, map and the full exhaust and that's not fitting it, would do that for around £460, so all in £2660.
Big money💰 to spend, all i want is to here the V twin sound, the map that they are given with the exhaust does the bike run good?.
Think i will wait till i get to the NEC SHOW this month ask some dealers there.
Enjoy your set up looks good

Morning.
I had to purchase a separate DNA filter as the dealer didn't fit one as part of the performance kit. Now that's fitted it runs really well. It has lots of grunt as you would expect.
I also cut part of the airbox cover to allow more air in as the intake is particularly small. This was easy to do with multi tool.

Sorry is there a lot of work in getting to the air filter, and anything to lookoutfor doing it?
Hi.
It's simple enough. It just takes a while stripping everything off so the tank can be lifted off. Only thing to note is that there are two breather/ overflow pipes that you have to remove. You can only get these off by lifting the tank slightly and then squeezing you hand it to pull them off. No clips so it's not hard just awkward. Make sure the tank is empty to make life easy.
You will also need a 1/4 drive ratchet to get the two furthermost airbox cover screws off and this is quite restricted so takes a little longer but all doable. It took around 1 3/4hr from start to back together but I was taking it carefully. In reality it's probably an 1 1/2 now I've done it once.

I removed the following;
1.Seat
2.Front farings L/H & R/H
3.Screen
4.Steering damper (just remove the 4 x m6x30mm screws that mount the assembly. Don't remove the actual damper from the mounts)
5.Small fairing panel below the steering damper
6.Rad guards surround
7.Two bolts that secure the tank in place. Be careful not to lose the steel spacer that sits in the rubber grommet for the mount by the triple clamp end.
8.Lift the tank and remove the breather pipes.
9.There is then a quilt that protects the harness. This just lifts off.
10. I didn't disconnect the ECU. I simply slip the assembly ofd of the airbox cover and pulled it back out of the way.
11. There are then 6 x torxs screws that secure the airbox cover in place. Once you remove these, the filter can simply be removed/ replaced.

Question, I see on the DNA site that the filter is a "K&N" style. The pic you show looks like there is a foam style. Which one did you get from DNA?
