Headres Arrow or Akrapovic
« on: February 09, 2019, 08:22:00 PM »
Hi guys

After couple of performance wise mods (by the way I don't think that s1000xr needs any of these... :)  ) s1000rr intake tube, akra slipon, rapidbike evo, I'm on to something serious and looking for a headers. The thing is I there is a reasonable price gap between akro and arrow (on my previous SS bikes I always preferred arrow). Can any one comment on these two ?
I just want to explain that the cost difference between two is like a set of tires for me. So let me hear your thoughts.

I believe the Akra comes in stainless and Titanium, not sure if Arrow do Titanium, I have the stainless Arrows, good quality kit too.

Hi Smithy,

I planning to go with Arrow but while checking the part numbers and etc form their web site (link below) I have seen that it doesn't have the bungs for o2 sensors. Is it right also can you write the part number of the Arrow headers that you are using ?
