    Very happy. I just had the carbon fiber Akropovic slip on installed. I can't believe how much cleaner the bike looks. I weighed the hardware that came off. It was exactly 30 lbs. The slip on weighed 5 lbs. Losing 25 lbs is a very good thing and I like the carbon fiber aesthetics. Carbon fiber is miracle material. I worked in aerospace on rockets for 37 years and watched the technology develop. The Akropovic CF can is beautifully crafted. I also added some PSR "click and roll" levers. Another nice piece functionally and aesthetically. Akro claims about a 5HP and 5 lb ft gain. It sure sounds less restrictive and I like the deeper guttural exhaust note. I am a sucker for the beauty of precision. Good day for me and my new bike. I also had the 1st 600 mile oil change done so it is now time to let it loose.

    I envy you. I've been looking at the Akropovic slipon for some time now. Let us know how it works and if possible post a video!
    I just rebuilt my forks with Race Tech springs and heavier oil and it's a dream to ride now!

    It's a bloody good job you are in your line of work.
    There must be many astronauts thankful for that.

    So still no video available? I recently help my buddy put a R77d 3/4 exhaust on so I'd like to know the difference. I can't believe no one else replied to your post but maybe they're just jealous because we can ride year round!
