No Akrapovic for the B

I contacted Akrapovic the other day and asked if they had plans for an exhaust for the B/GA models and they said they do not have plans for an exhaust either model. I refuse to pay $2100+ for the Remus, so hopefully Fullsac or others will offer something more realistically priced.

If you had an issue with the Remus price then be glad Akrapovic isn't entering the market; you'd have choked at their price...

If they visited this site in the last 6 months, they would see that there is a growing market for the products for the B and BGA.

Does our exhaust have one of those flapper valves?
I think the B is too quiet.
Not sure I want to punch out the stock exhaust though. Too much trial and error for sound

I am going out on a limb here by guessing you guys came off of Harleys.

I thought about the Remus briefly. In my mind, I put myself on a long trip with the din of a performance engine in my head for maybe 14 hours.

I kinda like the stealthy stylings of my Grand. I will not stay behind straights or tuned pipes; these folks will hear my exhaust first.

All that said, I get it; the throaty sound of a real engine is alluring. It will also be a thing of the past in 50 years or so, giving way to motors.

Do you have more info with regard to drilling the stock pipe and a sound clip please.
Info like instructions and maybe a pic. Also the size of the drill bit please.
How would you say it sounds compared to the remus on you tube.
Thank you bud

Ive owned about 30 bikes over the years, 1 of them was a Harley. Just 1.
Ill be pushing daisies long before 50 years from now. lol
I don't like it real loud, but some exhaust sound would be nice. Not gonna spend 2k for it.
Don't want it THAT bad.
