Aropovic
« on: July 01, 2015, 01:42:30 PM »
Fitted the Black Akrapovic, purely for the aesthetics, sound not to dissimilar to standard, will have to try without the insert at some time!
Straight swap, about 15 minutes to fit once you've messed about with the copper grease and thread lock!

I believe the BMW version is silver only but I wanted the black version as I think it looks better.

Ok, cool. It looks bigger than the original, in your pic. Is it?

Its actually a bit smaller than the original, the photo doesn't really do it justice, it was taken very close up and makes it look huge!

Looks good!!  Would love to know what it sounds like with the silencer removed.
Dealer telling me it's $1200.00 to order here in the States.  :230:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Interesting, the thing is already pretty damn loud with Rides Mode Pro enabled, not sure there is a removeable silencer in the end can. Think I might have to go investigate if I can raise more mayhem in my neighborhood  :008:

If it's anything like the one I had on the K1300S you can be damn sure you will be raising hell in the neighborhood when you remove the silencer!!   :152:
