Akrapovic wanted for SMT please!

Post by Peter1290gt » Fri Mar 31, 2017 4:28 pm

Hi
Does anyone out there have a Akra pipes for sale for my 2013 SMT please?
I have bought the bike with Leo Vince pipes, but find them a bit too loud, and the standard ones are too quiet!
Please message or call me on 07837 291381
Thanks

Why don't you use db-killers?
Akra without them is loud as f@k anyway, I can't ride like that for long.
Interestingly, I had a single exhaust on Aprilia v-twin 1000 and it was spot on noise-wise.

My old SMR's Akra's used to set off the odd car alarm. Usually my neighbour's wife's car. Luckily he was a biker too so he'd just lean out the window and stick his thumb up at me with a smile... at least I think it was his thumb [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

I bought mine with Akros fitted. The shop had a list of faults found on the bike when they did the part ex- top of the list was 'fitted baffles-too loud'. I've never removed them since I bought it. Often wonder how loud it is and if there are any performance gains ? I use ear plugs so I likely wouldn't notice a loud pipe when riding.
