This is from an XR with longer shocks

Do you have any more pics of the bike? It looks like it was tracked pretty hard. Correct me if I am wrong, but it doesn't look like that exhaust would have drug during normal street riding.

Here two more pics; agree, it's ridden pretty hard, but the rear is lifted / shocks about 400mm +; with short shocks you might touch the ground quite early; how long are the roadster shocks?

Well, I placed an order for the Zard exhaust in Stainless steel with a carbon muffler. The titanium version only weighed about 3 pounds less and was about $500 more, so I couldn't justify the extra cost.
