Dont see what is wrong with the stock exhaust. Why pay all that money for an aftermarket exhaust?  :305:

I agreed with you BUT  :005: :005: found myself ordering a new end can. It must be Radio waves from this forum that made me do it.

Not fitted it yet, should be arriving tomorrow. It is made by Toro, ( Hexcone carbon ) uk made and excellent build quality. Plus great price, I will post some pics after fitting. IMO the Akrapovic is a big ugly lump.

I have the Arrow headers and shorty 8" Delkevic can...sounds awesome. Custom remap via a Rapid Bike Evo module....power wheelies in 3rd are relatively easy now..😁😁..

I have the full Akrapovic system with Powercommander V custom map.
Fantastic sound and pulls like a train from low revs.  :001:
