Stainless Steel Exhaust - Full System

Hi All.
Predator Motorsport produce a full exhaust system for the XT600s, front to back. It's listed at £325+VAT - £381 all up. Does anyone have any idea if this is a good price? Also, does anyone have any experience of this product? Is re-jetting required.
By comparison, Motoward will supply a set of Motad headers for £140 (including VAT I presume). This means finding a silencer for £240 or less.
Any thoughts anyone?

Regards,

Geoff

Try M&P for the header pipes - I think they are a bit cheaper. Do it by phone: the pipes don't come with gaskets, but if you ask nicely they will throw them in FOC. If you order online, there isn't that option. I'm pleased with mine.

I guess the calculation is whether you can get a decent end can for less than the total for the whole system minus the Motads. Buying separately gives you a bit more flexibility, I suppose. Unless the new system is substantially more free-flowing than standard, it is unlikely to need rejetting, and I would have thought they would make that clear in the advertising.
