They're here!!!

My Akropovic exhaust just arrived! I'm sitting here at work trying to stop grinning like an idiot.

I won them on eBay about a week and a half ago. They're used but in excellent shape. Total cost including shipping from UK was $570.

If I'm lucky, I can sneak the bike into the service bay and intall them since we're pretty slow today. Pics and video to come...

Sweet!

Congrats. I hear they are some well made cans. And if you're running stock exhaust now, you'll be grinning even more the first time you take it for a ride.


It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

Actually, we were pretty slow today, so I used my lunch break to install them.

The sound... WOW. I love the way the bike sounds now! I certainly won't be slipping in unnoticed after late night rides, but I can live with that.

Thanks for posting your pics. I got my 05 919 used a few weeks ago and it had a windscreen on it. After seeing your pics I remembered how damn hot these bikes are with out a screen, so I went out and stripped it off and I am fully naked now.

It's sort of crappy, but here is a quick mp3 file of the exhaust. The first part is about 15 feet away with the exhaust pointing away from me. The second part is about 10 feet away with the exhaust facing me.

It's much better in person!
