exhaust silencer
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:57:39 AM »
Hallo cb 500x riders.
The Original exhaust silencer has a little lack of noise. There are a few other silencers on the after market. Is there anyone who could tell me anything about the akropovic?
Safe ride, Wim

Safe ride, Wim

What exacty are you interested in about the Akra? I have one. It's great, superior workmanship. Jas attenrion to detail (super carbon work, end bands are made of titanium alloy, etc), weights less than the original. No much performance difference if any at all. I use it with the baffle in.
I can confirm, tht it is expensive.

Also have akrapovic carbon, great exaust, expencive but a work of art and a music to my ears. With DB killer is a little bit louder than stock, without DB its perfect!
Very light and doesnt increase the performance of the bike...

Okay guys thanx for the information and links.
These exhaust pipes are much less expensive.
There is a acropovic for sale in my country now for 275 euro. It is used. For about 2000 km.
I am thinking about to buy it.

Sounds like a reasonable price. See if you can get it for 250 :)

I've fitted a Fuel exhaust to mine, absolutely superb.

Looking for a similar solution... I had my can off the other day when rebuilding my rear caliper and started the engine out of curiosity... Wow, what a sound.

If I were to spend that much, I would be will to spend just a little bit more to get a full system like the Yoshimura R77. Has anyone had any experience with it? Does it shave a lot of weight off or give any meaningful performance gains?

Thanks!

I've got the Fuel exhaust (went for the cheapest configuration so it came to just under 200) and I run it with the baffle out for my commute, baffle in for the longer journeys. I love it, a completely different sound, and whilst there is no difference to performance I think there's an improvement to low speed rideability. Really easy to fit yourself as well :)

With regards to getting extra power from the engine...it's a pretty weedy unit, I'd be supised if you could liberate much more from it without spending an utter fortune.
