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.
What do you mean far too forward? I am picturing that as the 696 has no exvalve, there wouldn't be any hole or whatsoever in the said cw kit. but havent really seen a cw fender eliminator in person.
