Akrapovic or not
I got rear ended at a stop by a riding partner. Nothing serious, but enough to get a new right side case assly, tail light lens, right upper and lower fairing and the muffler. I have the choice to replace the muffler by an OEM or an Akrapovic. I had the opportunity to have a look at a k13gt with this pipe and to listen to it. Oh boy! The sound is pretty nice, low tone rumble, and lighter and the last but not least a 5-7% incerase torque/hp at mid range.
It seems also that it may be necessary to repack the Akras after a while. Can I get infos on how long between repacking it and the where and how much for a kit?
But I'm the conservative type and would like to know before making my decision, if someone can validate the upgrade? Because of the accident I have this opportunity, otherwise I only tought about it.
Thanks for the input.
