I had the same pattern on mine, 02 R1150 GSA. I kept riding it till the center blocks were done, bologna skins, and noticed no ill effects to the handling of the bike. To date the Anakee 2's have...

It is pretty funny how the same guys chime in pooh poohing cat removal and aftermarket exhausts. They don't sound like Ducs with Termis , or an S1000RR with an Akro, but they are less wheezy and...

For me, the biggest issue was to get rid of the cat as it was baking the tranny. A y pipe and Remus exhaust was the way to go. Raspy sound and a cooler, quieter gearbox made for money well spent....
