Which mufflers?

Post by Zombie Master » Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:01 am

2013 990SMT

So I've done some farlking to make my SMT tour worthy. I haven't changed exhaust because the bike goes really well, and throttle response is fine. But...I would like to shed some weight as I run hard bags, which have frames, and have a center stand. I have no dealer, so I have to do all my own work. I'm keeping my center stand and I've been told Akros won't work. I would love if I could just slip a set on and all would be good. But I guess that would I'm asking for too much. Any thoughts? 8-)

Why won't Akros work ? I have hard panniers on mine-no problem. I believe they require a link pipe. Mine came with it all fitted so I don't know what kit is needed, but Akros are definitely fine.

Do you have a center stand?

If you're putting Acra headers too then center stand might not work, but if it's just cans, then you won't have any issues.

On that note I love my GPR's: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8050

Only problem is that they point straight out of the can, so if you have wide soft tail bag, it might melt ;)
