Question Akrapovic full Evo 2 Exhaust System

For quite sometime, well in fact since the Akra system became available I've really fancied treating myself to the full Akrapovic Evo 2 Exhaust System. The quality, the welding is second to none and the exhaust note awesome, not to menton the power increase.

Where is the best or cheapest place to buy?
Do Db Killers come as standard?
What is the best ECU to use with the above
Lastly, is a PC3/5 needed?


Cheers,

Richard.

Having had both the Termi and Akrapovic full systems I know what works and what doesnt.

Like you said the quality of the Akra is fantastic, puts the Termi to shame, BUT, I always associate Termi with Ducati and for the price you get the correct ecu included with the kit and it still works out cheaper than the Akra.

When fitting the Akra full system if you use the satndard ecu you will get 2 warning lights/faults showing. One for the o2 sensors and one for the exhaust servo motor.

I ran my Akra with the Termi Race ecu and it stops any fault codes and is a better map than the standard ecu.These can be picked up occasionally second hand, a new one is about 900 !!!

When I got my Akra it retailed for 2300, they will no doubt have gone up since then. They were cheaper from the USA, you have to shop around.

Fitting a PC3 makes another difference, I have maps for both the Termi full system and a separate cylinder map made especially for the Akras. The PC3 smooths out the dip at around 4000rpm and the air/fuel ratio is much more accurate.

I have Akras on my 1098R Bayliss, using the race ECU and i love em, am thinking of getting a Nemisis ECU later in the year, Mine came with DB killers but i did hear a few people who said theirs did not, so i can not say for certain that they all come with them.
