One suggestion: Advrider is a huge site with lots of visitors. We must have some Japanese folks on board who could do a real translation for us.

I didn't use a website to translate that, just used what I know from the 2 years of japanese I took. You are right, they are saying the pipe and muffler is stainless, it has the passenger pegs (or works with them left on the bike), and it works with the panniers. I said I didn't help because you can tell all that from the picture.

For what it's worth, directly translated japanese is kinda the same sentence structure as yoda talking.

Ain't that the truth.

It's an interesting language that's for sure.

I checked out the website. Those pipes are custom built for specific motorcycles, they are not built as bolt on pieces. They want to receive your bike first, and work on it for 2 - 3 weeks.

I checked out their bolt on muffler offeringss. Nothing for GS or paralever(?) equipped bikes.

Sorry.

Be a lot cheaper to find a local supplier/bender for titanium pipes and fit your muffler of choice.
