They told me to talk to LP. LP hardly knew anything. They think they will get something mid to late Mar. On a German site I found some pictures of stuff for 04s. Slip-ons, slip-ons with midpipe (to remove cat) and the full system that looked like the YART bike system (evo version).

I guess it will be officially available when the info shows up on their website. So far nothing yet. They seem to update it fairly regularly.

Can you post the pics or provide a link, please?

There is no way to know whether or not the dyno printout is supposed to be the real deal, but, if it is, it is very interesting. Notice minimal HP gains, but the low rev dip is smoothed out and there are large torque gains. As if the purpose of the design was to smooth out the power delivery in order to make the beast more manageable! In an interview, DiSalvo was saying that at Daytona testing his rear wheel was spinning ~50% of the time. Perhaps the Akra is designed to minimize this on the superbike.

LP is the US distributor for Akro.... We've been told Mid to end of March... I'm not sure what the end pricing will be but I was told the full evo ti system retails for $2400.00... I hope that's wrong cause that's pretty high..

Here is the link. You will have to navigate to the page since there is no direct link. Click "weiter", click the Akra picture, then click "news".
Yo, thanks!! Now that is what I was looking for. Iknew I was not stupid.

Now that is what I'm talking about! Akrapovic knows their shit when it comes to building exhaust sytems. Those are so much shorther and cleaner than the Graves and others that I have seen yet!:fact

I guess that's why I always buy Akrapovic.:thumbup

That's a serious price tag they have on them though.
