    Are you kidding? I’ve had both and silver shows up every single speck of dirt and I found it a major PITA to keep clean. Only had ones with a black engine since.

    I had one on my 2016 XR back when they were going for about £550. Sounded almost exactly the same as the stock can and no difference in power or torque. Waste of money if you ask me.
