Make sure you get one that is listed after 2018 as the link pipe on the 2019 onwards bike is completely different  :169:   

I'm sure there are systems out there that will fit your 2020 bike, but for the moment I can't remember which    :187:

I have seen an Akropovic end can specifically for the 2020 model, on the Akro website.

I think the outlet from the “toaster” is in a different place to pre-2020 models.
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership

Well in a turn up for the books I checked the Delkevic website after posting and they now list one. They didn't last week, they have complete systems to allow a de-cat

So I have ordered an end can and link pipe, it will be here tomorrow will post a picture when I get it fitted.

cheers

I have the delkevic decat system with my own modified akro pipe from my 2015. If you're fitting (or anyone else) their front pipes , they were very easy to fit. One of the 4 springs that hold the decat pipe onto the collector box is awkward to fit but apart from that it's straightforward. It easier if you use a paddock stand rather than the centre stand or if not, once the front down pipes are fitted, take it off the main stand and use the sidestand while you fit the decat pipe.

Is there any noticeable performance gain with a de-
cat

I've not had my 2019 on my mates Dyno yet but when I decatted my 2015 he got 120bhp and more torque at the wheel, which is a lot more than the 118 Kawasaki quote for at the crank.
I'd expect atleast 120at the wheel, and I saved over a stone in weight as well.
