    Akrapovic Header Pipes S1000XR 2020 model

    Does anyone know or has anybody installed the new Akrapovic Header pipes for the S1000XR 20/21 model and if so does the OEM end can fit the Akrapovic headers? Im not specifically looking for improved performance I just want to eradicate the lump of a catalytic converter and in the process let the engine breathe a bit better and hopefully improve the sound of the existing end can. any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to spend upwards of £800 British pounds and find I then need to purchase a new end can.

    Check out Germany if you think ours are strange.

      Have to say that is a neat looking set of after market down pipes:-)

    Getting my akra headers fitted on 6th Jan but leaving standard end can for now. Bahnstormer are fitting it. Suspect I’ll need a dyno set up. Anyone recommend someone in Surrey/Hants? Ta jx

    It most certainly will need a run(or two) so what device are you fitting to map it ?

    Don’t know, hence the question. My 2015 had a full Akro system with no mods and that ran perfectly.
