Thanks for the input. Maybe opting for the evotech brand sonce I dont want to relocate the key on the seat.
The Evotech puts the key right up over the RH can... not very handy after a ride.
The Exhaust flapper is too far forward to interfere with any fender eliminator, so, yes, the 696/796 is the same.
