The main benefit I see with an aftermarket pipe is weight reduction: approximately 12-13 lbs weight-loss with the Akro (is what I have read here). That's a sizable amount...........especially if you have added rear racks, hard panniers (Ammo cans in my case), topbox, skidplate (I chose not too just because of the weight added), crash bars, tool tube full of tools (mine is 4" PVC, 18" long and can hold alot of heavy tools), etc, etc........
Is it worth $800 just for 13 lbs??.........depends on the owner and his budget.
