I believe the pipes made of Inconel previously used in Jet applications- hard to machine and extremely heat and corrosive resistant.i guess tat hike up te price - The 20% vat didn't help either.
m1bjr- akra made bike pipes so you're right.
takumichinoku-watched about 40 you tube reviews and vids and believe tat below 4000, it's civilised- Above that, this e92 turns NASCAR .
It's an OEM part , so that doesn't hurt the warranty and if anything will add some value to resale a few years down.
The pipes on back order and I've secured te last one .
Called a few different parts dept around the country and told the same story.
Only 3 sleeps before handover
