Just got the Zard exhaust I ordered direct. I'd read elsewhere that it was compatible with the SW-Motech center stand and can confirm it is. Close, but adequate clearance.

Also want to give a shout out to the good folks at Zard Italy, they were terrific for answering my questions about fitment and comparative loudness with and w/o the Euro4 option. Also the shipping was amazing - ordered on a Tuesday and I got it here in Vancouver, Canada on Thursday!

It is much louder than the stock exhaust. Even with dB Killers in it's maybe a little louder than I'd prefer, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. When it's broken in more thoroughly, I plan on taking it to our local dyno guy who informs me that he's tweaked the ECU on many Yamaha 700 twins to massage out the throttle response jerkiness.

And yes, that's my garage mate's Vincent 'C' Rapide behind the Yamaha.
