Akrapovic Slip On - Not huge gains in power
« on: June 23, 2015, 08:34:45 AM »
Even tho the Akro looks sexy, is a bit lighter than stock ( 1.5kg lighter ) and sounds a bit better there is not much to be had in terms of power  :012:...see graph below;

Only a biker knows why a dog sticks its head out of a car window!!!

And here in the States they want $1200.00 for the slip on can!!!  Ouch!  They would need to give me lots more ponies for that kind of money.  Can't imagine what an entire system would cost!!   :156:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Yep, and the first thing I invested in is both radiator and oil cooler protectors.  With that shorty fender the last thing I would want is a dinged oil cooler or radiator fins out on the road.   :305:

Not sure that I'd trade the short fender look for an extended fender.  Hoping the black rad/cooler guard will add to the appearance overall and protect the investment.   :305:
