I have recently been approved for my RC51 <Insert excited freaking out look here> ... I can have a full akropovic system w/ pc 3 installed from the dealer ... does anyone have any thoughts on whether this is a good or bad idea and why???

Thx in advance.

Re: Akropovic Exhaust w/ PC III for 51 (Canada-51)

The Akra system is totally top notch in terms of quality, makes great noise, and good power. The problem is that most agree that for the street, other (slip-on) systems are actually better - Satos are really popular here. I have Aratas which I love. Yoshimuras have a good following. You can save yourself a bunch of money by going with high quality slip-ons.

The PCIII you should do even if you stick with the stock exhaust!

My
Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the club.

I went there to get my reviews of all the mapping -- I did look very closely at Yosh as well...

The PC is going in no matter what... I've also got a contact who can "Etch" - so I'm actually thinking of having my stock exhaust etched and selling that baby on ebay or something. Maybe have a dragon etched in the it and then have it high heat painted black or just put some crazy etching on it that would really stick out! Should be cool.

Anyhow - I think the date I take delivery of the RC is August 1 so as soon as I get it I'll post some pics! :D

Re: (BC51)

I've got the full Akro, and it sure takes a ton of weight off. Mine is an 00 so don't bother asking what map. If I was going again, and paying retail it'd be slipons, and probably Sato since they're so developed.

I used to have an Akrapovic on my 02 w/ the PC3r. I never got to get a decent mapping for it because before I could go out and fork over the $400 necessary to get the map done, I had the brilliant idea of lowsiding at the track and destroying the system at the same time. What a waste.

I loved it though. It was worth the money. It sure was light. I think it saved about 12lbs over the stock exhaust (which is super heavy). So just that is worth it.

I'm running Akra slipons with my PC3R. I was running a map that I downloaded that was supposed to be for Akra's but the bike liked to idle roughly with it. I downloaded the Dan Kyle Sato Low-mount map from the Power Commander user submitted database and it rocks with the Akra's. I don't believe I gained more than a few ponies but I know the bike looks and sounds better and the carbon cans are lighter than stock by a long ways!

BC51. No. It's controlled laser etching. While I wouldn't want it personally, I'm sure there's someone even here in the city that would pay good bucks for it.

Why Buy A 51 when you can Smoke Crack
etch pipes and sell them on E Bay.
Seems Like A Waste Of Money.

Re: (The Acclude)

The stock system is good to get rid of for the weight savings alone. The Akro system really shines with a little engine work.

Re: (suprajoe)

Hey do you mind if I get that map from you? I am living in Japan now and not near a dyno. I have a 2000 RC51 with akra slip-ons. If you dont mind can you send to [email protected]

Thanks!
