When I said 1200-1300 I was reffering to the dual high pipes from Renegade. I will definetely talk to Spencer Cycle when I am ready to order it. Thank you everyone.



One more thing: is the akro TI/TI or SS/TI/CF? or can you get either one?

Apparently there is an Akrapovic Evolution system? that is full Ti. But when I purchased my Akra I only had the option of a Ti or Stainless link pipe with SS headers. All the CANS are Ti construction with either Carbon Fiber on the outside or Ti.



The advantage to a Ti header is that you can wrap it. Most people don't like wrapping Ti headers due to the metal fatigue that occurs.



There is not a big weight difference either way. I would save the extra money on the Ti header and put it into a PCIIIr and if you have more money burning to be spent then get a Hans Monster Ram Air intake manifold, then hang on to your goodies when you ride.

I've been seriously looking into the akro lately as a birthday is comming up and will treat myself to it. From what I understand the old akro is a 4-1 setup and the new Evolution is a 4-2-1 setup with some type of connector pipe, kinda like the yosh RS3. I wonder why the changes?

My Akra has the individual header tubes going into a collector that has a divider down the center join for a few inches which makes it a pseudo 4-2-1 pipe, it also has the balancing tubes between the different header pipes.

Amen to that. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">



I was weighing in at 215lbs but I am down to 207lbs which is still 10lbs more than I weighed when I used to do Triathalons and ski 40 days per year. A computer jockey career has not been nice to the physique. LOL

Mark, you have it all wrong. he Bowflex is not a "coaster", it is used for ballast in the back of your truck during winter time.

And the Beer goes in your mouth, not on your keyboard <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

Dude, Get the Akro from Doug @ spencer cycle!!



Akro is "the cats meow" of exhaust systems.



Most people don't know this...but..the Zx-12r was designed by the engineers @ KHI to use Akro pipes. (Honest) Your bike was origionally ment to run with an akro setup. (Once it's installed, you'll understand what I'm talking about...and be glad you did.)

Sndnga, I would be willing to bet that you would never be able to tell the difference in regards to the full Titanium and the SS/Titanium or SS Carbon.

The extra cash you could save by going with the SS/TI system could allow you to make other upgrades which could improve performance much more than saving a couple extra pounds off the exhaust system.

Put the extra savings into regearing both front and rear/new air filters/ and PC111R (if you don't already have these).

If I recall, you stated in earlier responses that you weigh in around 250 lbs. The most cost effective performance improvement could be a decrease in your weight, not the exhaust. But, needless to say most of us could afford to loose a couple of lbs... <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":(">
