The slip-on exhaust looks and feels very high quality. It's so much lighter than the OEM exhaust. I've not removed the dB killer, but still the sound is amazing without being too loud. The burble on overrun is my favorite part. I can't say I've noticed any increase in power or torque, but I bought it for the sound and weight saving. I'm sure a Dyno would show an improved curve. I have no experience with fitting aftermarket parts but I found it incredibly easy to install.
I'd imagine durability is great, but I can't say just yet, that's why I only gave 4 stars.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This armor feels like it will provide much more protection than the standard armor fitted in my gear. It's also more comfortable.

Icon Variant Helmet - Solid Survival is a matter of enhanced situational awareness - an unforgiving maze of gravel strewn corners and malevolent steel. Introducing the Variant helmet from Icon. A wind tunnel refined shape, executed in a Fiberglass/ Dyneema/Carbon matrix, along with a dual-density EPS core provide critical impact energy management. Extensive venting and a removable HydraDry wicking liner provide increased comfort by reducing rider fatigue.

If the streets are your area of operation - equip yourself for the fight with the Icon Variant .

My head size was right in the middle between Medium and Large. Revzilla recommended I go with the Large and it fits perfectly. Buffeting from visor is minimal when looking over shoulder at 60mph, certainly not enough to cause any problems. Difficult to notice the visor was even there most of the time, except when it kept the sun out of my eyes. Padding is comfortable and easy to remove. Removable chin curtain is perhaps a bit too big, making it tricky to drink from a camalbak while riding. Once removed, drinking on the move is easy. Overall, great helmet.
