Akropovic exhaust

Anyone install an Akropovic exhaust on their 2017-2019 Wee?
I contacted them and they say that a fuel controller isn't necessary for this bike.
They do say that it will fit with an OEM center stand, but I have an SW Motech center stand, so not sure.
It gains about 5HP and torque which is fine, but I don't care about that in a big way.
However it does lose 9-10 pounds which I would care about. So the combination of both
might make it worthwhile for me.

Question

Does SV racing parts offer a deal on these?

Blair still around? He took care of me when I got my 2012.

Not sure what he is doing with the new bikes.

You have a nice quiet bike that performs well. The stock pipes are good and you will not really see an improvement in performance, but only one in "noise", if you go to aftermarket pipes.

Yes. That's why I mentioned that weight was also an issue. Thanks for your input though. :-)
