I have an R60/5, and I found this YouTube video of what they would sound like on my bike. Very, very nice indeed. It sounds a lot meaner than I thought a 600cc BMW boxer could!

Good luck!
Nice. Chris is awesome. He helped me recover from a loose valve seat which did some damage to my head last year. I'll reach out to him if I decide to go this route to see if he's still selling. Still researching other options because it's still a bit pricey -- but maybe worth it.
