Waddup James D G, y u mad? And yes I'm starting this Up again because well, I can😂

Graves is my choice. Akra, amazing product as well but in the "Land of the Free" I support Made in America sh#+, so with that being said buy whatever the [email protected]$& you like and if you ask for my opinion then I'll give you one. Also gentleman stop being
b!*%#es on an online forum. It's a place for brotherhood not enemies. Grow up!

For the record I would not hesitate to put a graves exhaust on one of my bikes. They do produce top notch quality, which should go without saying given them being closely compared with akraprovic.

I have a full Akrapovic system that I bought from someone on this forum, and I'm very happy with it. However, I can't say I've seen/heard a graves system in person to compare.

There's a few of the SBK Akras for sale on ebay at the moment. Too expensive for me and bike needs some mods to fit them.

My crossplane came with carbon Akrapovic cans and a de-cat Y-pipe already fitted and it sounds awesome, but it seems like every UK R1 has Akras on them and the more I see pictures of the Graves, the more I want them.

I can't find any UK Graves distributors though, so if I get them I'll have to import them and probably get stung by Customs. I think it will be worth it though.

so graves could actually be better than Akra? Cuz around here, everyone goes nuts when Akrapovic is writting on something! Hell my buddy's ZR1 Akrapovic system worth north of 7K! Which is facking ridiculous! On my previous planker, i had Yoshi slips, which was nice, but this time around is either Akra or Graves, depending on which deal will come up first!!

Give Velox Racing a call, they are based on the Channel Islands but sell all the Graves products. If you do get rid of the Akrapovic cans give me a shout ;-)
