Got my full Ti Arrow from DesmoTimes; maybe could have found for less, but I figure supporting LT when he breaks his back to find us solutions to maintenance and support of our bikes is money well spent.
Today was the big day of the full Ti swap; sorry no photos as there were three different people swapping parts at the same time in my garage. Started the bike with baffles in (only available with the Ti system; CF will distort with baffles), a very mellow and sweet sound. A little louder than stock, but definitely more full and distinct (removal of udder makes all the difference in the world). Then, as we wanted to get the full effect, we pulled the baffles and let it rip. Wow, this thing is scary sounding. Not loud as in "Harley with straight pipes" loud, but definitely letting you know this is an angry bike. We took a ride around the block (about 15 miles) and I must say that getting the system with removable baffles is the way to go (assuming you get the full system; the slip-ons that utilize the catalytic converter will not have this issue). For around town, especially riding early or late, the baffles go in with the help of a set of slip-ring pliers to keep the neighbors happy. For long rides in the mountains, out come the baffles in about 30 seconds to allow the bike to breathe.
Special thanks to Dave and Mark for their help getting the system fitted, and to all the guys who pointed me this way.
My $.02 is to get the full Ti system with removable baffles, anything less and you'll still want to upgrade.
