Link Pipes

Do you guys know where I can get some aftermarket link pipes for my 2019 CB500F?
I purchased the Akrapovic Slip-on but I want to remove the original dual pipes that are attached to the motor.
This Akrapovic Slip-on sounds just like the original Slip-on, no sound at all, super quiet and I want a louder sound.
If this Akrapovic Slip-on has a Cat I'll have to return it. Do you know if this can be made so it sounds louder?
Thanks.

John, the catalisator is part of the headers, not the muffler.
Ixil makes a header what can be bought alone (and has no cat), otherwise there are full systems replacing the whole system.

Check your Acro of it still has the baffle insert installed. Remove that will make it a bit louder 😉

Thanks for replying Oyabun! Yes, I already have the Slip-on, I need to replace the whole OEM system for a plain dual to one pipe to attach to this the new Akrapovic Slip-on that I bought.

Thanks, should I just pull the baffle out with a plyer? It does not have screws on it. I don't want to ruin it by pulling the baffle incorrectly.

This part is what I'm looking for but I don't know if this particular part will work on my CB500FA 2019 model.

Ixil shows the pipe for the CB-500R. I could not find one for the F model. Any reason they should not interchange? I plan to use the OEM muffler (for now). My main concern is weight reduction. Does anyone have a figure for weight reduction?
Thanks...

Hi RalphG, I contacted Ixil today and they say this one fits the CB500F 2019 model.
It weights only 1 Kg or 2.2 lbs. I ordered one today for my CB500FA and possible I'll buy their L3XB black HyperLow Slip-on Exhaust. I told them I want the loudest one of the 4 that they sell for my bike. The tech support guy recommended me the L3XB Black HyperLow. Check it out:

There are several threads on the forum about removing the catalytic convertor and re-tuning the engine. I suggest you check them out while waiting for your new goodies.

I am still using stock exhaust so can't answer questions about your changes.

@john2019 with the IXIL header, just be aware that it does not have the tabs front and back like the oem one for the bottom heatshield to screw onto; so you either go without it or find means for it to bolt on. An If you have no method to weld, an exhaust shop can weld some tabs on for not much. It's a nice system though.
