hello folks...just bought a full akrapovic exhaust from ebay for my 929 and was planning on fitting it next spring (doing the valve clearances etc at the same time...then off to the dyno)...when I got an e mail from the seller telling me to make sure its the right pipe for the bike???? I mailed back saying the bike is a 929 and could he confirm its definitely a 929 akrapovic....ho hum no reply.
I have looked for pics on the net but with little sucess and the pipe has no ID stamps etc........I was wondering if anyone on here has a 929 or 954 akra pipe or a good closeup of the downpipes so I can compare mine. I really dont want to take the standard pipe off till I can get the new pipe mapped...which will not be this side of christmas cos Im skint lol......cheers............................davros

I only have photos of mine after I wrapped the headers.
Can you post pics of the system you've bought?

I looked at that one on ebay mate and had a few emails back and forth with the seller. Mainly what put me off to be hoenst as he seemed unsure. Heres what info he gave me, hope it helps.

1st Q&A:

Dear res1net,

hi mate. which exact model was this removed from? A 954?

Answer:

I believe it is off a 00/01 954, i have matched it with a set of original 954 downpipes to confirm.

Cheers.

2nd Q&A:

Dear res1net,

ok mate thanks, the 954 is 02-03 the 929 will fit too but before that won't.


Answer:

Sorry mate, i have got my wires crossed, it IS a from 929, i am going off my nut here as i have been dealing with stuff from 4 different models across the range, it definatly wont fit an earlier blade as i tried it on my one.

I will change the listing right now...

Cheers.

It looks similar to mine, but hard to say for sure. The stock header looks nothing like the Akra. The Akra tubes twist and move so much you wouldn't be able to compare much to stock. Each head pipe is sperate and slips into a collector, so they can twist and move all over the place. Is the can titanium or stainless? Doesn't ebay offer a buy back warranty or something?

Weight savings is huge! If its the titanium that is. I'm shocked how light that pipe is. You'll need a power commander to and a dyno tune to really reap the performance benefits from it.
