Ordered the Akra carbon slip-on today. Parts411 has been easy to work with so far.

I'll keep ya posted and try to get a camera to post pics once I get/install it on wednesday.

What made you go with a slip on over the full exhaust? I've been wanting to get an exhaust but figured you might aswell get the full system than just a can.

Why do a full exhaust? Except for changing a power curve, these bikes make huge power already. A pipe sounds nice and reduces weight, but I really don't see the point of a full exhaust.

doing a full exhaust means you will likely have to do other things to make it run right, like a PCIII, and the gain going from slip-on to full exhaust is about 4 horsepower.

The slipon will give me about 3 hp gain, including a good bit of torque where my bike needs it... 3-5k rpms. What I was mostly after tho is a nice sound, not horridly loud just a little deeper and a little louder.

110 hp to the rear wheel after this upgrade is quite enough for the street.

i dont wanna burst your bubble but slip-on's make virtually nothing. 110whp is a little bit optimistic IMO for just having a slip-on assuming the bike is otherwise stock.

a friend had her 600z dyno'd and makes 112whp on a dynojet with a full Arrow and tuning. she started at 101whp stock.

There is no bubble to burst here. I know a slip-on wont make much hp... but I also know a full system doesnt make much more.

Heres some figures from Akra's site. I know they are trying to sell stuff so i dont take these numbers as the last word aside from finding value in what they say the bike makes with the slip-on vs thier own full exhaust.. that they are also trying to sell. Thier number for stock seems pretty optimistic, but we all know dynos vary.


Stock: 107.9 / 13100 (2005)
Slip-on: 109.7 / 13200 (2005)
Full: 111.1 / 13250 (2005)

That is dyno runs on a 2005 R6.

Bottom line regardless of the numbers I am happy with the power now. If I can get a better sound out of this and a little more volume I will be quite happy.

If you have the extra money to spend why not go with the full system, thats what I did and I got a great deal on the system with the PC III usb. I got the Akra full racing system and I love it... no regrets.
