I'm seriously considering just getting some 4" Harley Bagger slip ons and having a bracket worked up with connection pipe.

Total shouldn't run more than $6-800.

Vance & Hines makes a slip on for the Goldwing....might sound nice on another 6-cylinder.

Cobra makes some great looking slip ones for the gold wing. I have emailed them inquiring about some for the K1600 but have not heard back yet.https://cobrausa.com/honda/gold_wing...x_black/1217B/

After doing a little research and finding the Remus slip-on's retail at about $2200 and the Akrapovic's for a GTL retail at the same price range, it would be a safe assumption that when Akra's are available for the B/GA they will be in the same stratospheric price range. The Max Torque Cans from the UK are looking better at around $700 + the $65 shipping.

They def look good, and I would go for them if I was ridding a GT, but on a B, nothing comes close to the Remus imo.

That pic is my friends bike, he says these are in production soon for the B.

Akrapovic recently made 25 sets for GS with his brand, as the GS he rode (and still is ) went for 300.000k with Akrap exhaust.





This is BMW intro of him

This is what I received when I asked Akrapovic when thy would be available for the B/GA:

Hello Chris,

Thank you for your interest in Akrapovic Exhaust Systems. Apologize for the delay in getting back to you as I had to do some additional research on this model. Our Bagger system (Which will fit this model as well) is currently in the final stages of R&D and is set to hit the market early July. There should be additional information on our website in the next few weeks. Please check back.


Best,

Nicole Allen, MBA
