Hi, wouldn't like to interrupt your rant. Credentials Maz ===
One of the most knowledgeable people around for these bikes and could be one of the few to speak directly to the man that designed/built rides the the things over here. He actually assists many with their machines over the internet for FREE. He also tries very hard to run a business assisting those that can't get it sorted themselves. Oh yes, he is one of the "originals" of the site, hence administrator tag. He has actually covered your point as have many others on this site.
It appears that you fly, or flew, aeroplanes. Played with Jaaaaags. ( Bit of Clarkson there !) Well its horses for courses, and so my tip would be, try the search button that the "administrators" kindly set up at the top of the page ??? It is highly beneficial when searching for common Items.
I also have a nearly new Remus that I will be removing along with the DB killers, these can be removed if you wish. It is completely stainless, like all shiny and new. It comes off in January when I get back from my hols. I'm flying in a Jet. You're not working are you ?

I ask Maz and some others that know their stuff about the bike, it short-circuits those that don't know.
I also have my Ships Medic ticket just in case the stress gets up there.
