Akra Exhaust for the 450/X

Recommended Posts

Dirt Rider magazine this months talks about bolting an Akrapavic slip-on muffler on their 'X' bike. They cite a 3.3lb reduction in weight over stock and list it as $496.00 bucks (or thereabouts, dont' have the mag nearby).

I cannot find an Akra slip-on for the 'X' anywhere. In fact, an Akra distributor Icontacted me said they do not make a version for the 'X' nor will the 'R' fit, nor can it be modified to do so.

What gives? Anyone out there seen an Akra for the X?

I'm interested too.I've seen some full system anyhow aftermarket pipes, and they show the same part no.# for the 05 R and X.

I'd love to know what's going on there. Doug

The Akra distributor told me no, the 'R' system would not fit the X.

Paul,

Akra, Paul, Akra. That's Akrapavic (formerly Skorpion). I can find aftermarket exhaust for the 'X.' But I'm interested in the Akra slip-on Dirt Rider referenced. Their claim was 3.3lbs of weight savings. That puts it at 4.9lbs. That's unbelievably light.

I was told the White Bros E2 was about 2lbs lighter than stock and it's one of the lightest ones out there.

I do like FMF though. I'm running them on my 950 Adventure. Great tone.
