For any who are interested.
Akrapovic just fitted to the 2 wheeled wonder.
Issues Good -
Fitment was easy, follow the instructions. (You may need to adjust any Engine Guards or Center Stands).
Instructions use the older model however it wasn't an issue.
Looks great, (a personal opinion). May look a little ... industrial for some.
Sounds great, (a personal opinion). Baffle in slightly louder than standard.
Baffle out, sounds the way a V2 should.
Issues Bad -
O2 sensor adapter required for my bike, (on order). (Australian bikes have a 12mm thread sensor, Aky exhaust has an 18mm thread). Probably not an issue for most of the USA.
Except maybe California ???
Not homologated. I think my Saturday morning lawn mowing session offends more people than the bike will ever do.
Thanks to Blair at SV racing. (And the Australian dollar).
So no issues on clearance around the rear of the skidplate mount?
Could you post a closeup pic when you get a chance of how it all fits under the rear skidplate mount? I have one of Yanns plates and was wondering if it would fit.
Good to know the Akra fits the new wee ok. I bought one for my 09 and absolutely love it and will move it over to a new wee when the time comes. I really like the white, very sharp. If Suzuki sells a white or flat black again I'll probably have to bite.
No issues with clearance on my bike, (Aky exhaust uses the standard front cylinder header pipe), SW Motech Engine Guard, (trimmed to allow the OEM center stand to work).
Thanks for the pics VEE02, and to be clear, this is the exact same Akra that fits the pre 2012 bikes too?
Again, congrats, I bet it sounds great and sheds pounds.
But, Crap, this makes me wanna spend more money !!
Did you use a power commander or just bolt it on and ride? If you just put it on did you notice any positive or negative effects on the engine performance? I really want the akra just trying to decide if a power commander is needed.
