Need Help Akrapovic exhaust

Hi I'm looking for an Akrapovic slip on exhaust in the hexag shape carbon fiber. I searched this forum and several others and only found two members who had such setup can somebody point me to a site or a store where such a setup could be purchased. Thank You

I believe the can you are looking for is available only with the full system.

It's not the speed that kills, it's the rate at which the speed diminishes...

Thank You! I just had the 6.0 update and do hear a little rattle or backfire. How much more obivous is the backfire going to become if I upgrade to the full system.

Ordered the full akrapovic system from Ken. How hard is it to install the system I work with car electronics at my job and take apart bikes and cars almost everyday. I was installing HID's and police strobes on a 2006GSXR 600 today and after taking the bike to do my install I realized that if I had the same bike I would have to remove the radiator to get the headers off. If anybody can tell me whats involved I would greatly appreciate it.

don't worry - install is very straight forward. only need t-25 & t-45 torx wrenches, 12-point 10mm wrench & 13/16" wrench (to remove o2 sensor). you should be able to install system in 1-2 hours.

WD-40 to release the O2 sensor...

One real quickie fine point would be to get the exhaust system "warm" and then squirt a couple shots of WD-40 onto the exposed threads of the O2 sensor and leave for about 45 minutes to penetrate into the threads. Then wrench off the O2 sensor. Works like a charm! <-- Got that info from Z-Tech when I did the exhaust system on the 'GT.

Cheers, y'all!

Does the Full system work with the BMW centerstand?

the akrapovic full system is the only one we've found to work with the factory centerstand with no modifications.
