I've read that Carbon wears out faster than Ti because of our Vtwin motors...so I would lean towards Ti, plus I think it looks better.

As for rounds or ovals...both are good for 2nd compared to GP cans . But seriously...probably just style preference as I don't believe there is a dyno difference.

Good luck and post pix of what you get.

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Titanium and oval

Titanium is more durable and the fecking oval cans do not rotate in the straps.

Ti oval. Last longer and oval looks better. These are my 2 pennies.

Mr. Kobe used to sell them but doesn't seem to anymore. Seems to only sell the high-mount GP cans.

Ti. No doubt about it! The carbon fiber is ok, but not nearly as tough as the Ti cans are for our twins.
I have both oval and round Ti cans. I like them equally well, haven't had any twisting problems with mine.

He makes a run of a set of 10 or so, and when they're sold, they're bye-bye!
I would search through LBP's Ebay page, you might find the canisters you like.

thoughts on adapting 54mm link pipes to 60mm canisters? worth it?

I have the Ti ovals, round short in Ti and carbon rounds, go oval Ti. If I can find a long Ti round then I would almost be complete.
