my thoughts on full akra + rapid bike
The akrapovic headers been laying in my living room for 3 months.
I was hoping dynojet will come up with something for our NSC but riding season just started where I live and I wanted the headers installed.
because there is no word on power commander, rapid bike it is.
1st impression: bike became loud, very loud! i have the smaller akrapovic muffler.
power on the other hand was restored (4k+ rpm). I no longer need to downshift to 5th in the highway for overtaking. this is a torquey motor, I had similar feeling in my previous '13 CB1000R with intake/exhaust/PCV. although no top end rush like my '13.
fueling isn't ideal,, probably needs more riding time to sort that out?
unfortunately, bike now in the workshop to revert back to stock headers. this is only due to the loud exhaust. even with earplugs,, it's too loud for me.
while the added power in the mid range is a plus, I still prefer a quieter bike :)
did I mention the bike became very loud?
hope this helps..
No fueling issues for me...
I have the exact same setup as you - the full Akra system with the Road end can. I don't seem to have any fuelling issues, from a throttle action perspective, but mine does seem to run a little rich... I smell of gasoline/oil after a decent run, especially my riding jeans. Akra has a CPU map for the full system, but my dealer doesn't have the gear to remap the ECU. Anyone had that done?
