17' 1290 Superduke quick questions

Post by Lund » Thu May 03, 2018 2:13 am

Picking up a left over 2017 SDR and Im looking for an exhaust that has a nice deep tone to it, want it to be Loud but doesn't have to be the loudest exhaust out there...

Also once fitted with an exhaust what else do I need to do with it to be sure it's running optimally with the new exhaust?

Thanks everyone!

I do have my Graves 3/4 system for sale. It is loud but sounds amazing. With an exhaust I would have the Akra map installed on the ECU, Rottweiler SAS removal and block off plates and K&N filter slipped in. This is what I had done to mine and it works wonderfully.

If you want loud and deep I went with Ooparts. Cat and flapper eliminated. Used Rottweiler flapper mimic thingy. It’s loud as hell, nice deep tone, and tucks up under bike to show rear wheel perfectly and unobstructed. Check YouTube for Ooparts Kim 1290. They have videos. Be prepared as the videos don’t properly do it justice. Perfect tone in my opinion but around 90+ decibels at idle and up to 115 on throttle. You will get attention and piss off neighbors.

You can just go slip on and not have to do anything to the bike. If you want to remove all the Euro gubbins and open her up, full Akra system is the way to go in my opinion - anything else will void your warranty.
