I just received an Akrapovic muffler with connector pipe from E-bay for $72 USD including shipping. For that price, I had not expected it to be of great quality, even tho I know the brand is a good one. Well, it appears to live up to the Akrapovic reputation. Installed easily. I had to make a muffler hanger out of 1/8" x 1" mild steel "strap" but other than that the installation was very easy and secure. I rode 87 miles on it in one outing, half-expecting the faux carbon fiber muffler would have melted, but nothing of the sort. I was looking for a little bit more sound (not much) and with the decibel killer left in it is perfect for me. The new system weighs 4# versus the OEM boat anchor muffler's 11#, so a 7# weight reduction.
The vendor is "betterprice_motor" and they shipped very quickly and the packaging was very sturdy. I am really happy with this purchase and recommend it for anyone wanting a lighter muffler with a choice of a little more sound or a lot more at a bargain price. Shipped from Kentucky, USA.
