My brand new used Akrapovic Megaphone just arrived straight off an R6 so my little 250 can pretend to be a 600 :rollin

Heres a little teaser of it:

Photobucket version:

Heres how it should sound, but hopefully a bit nicer as its only 480p!:

I do not own this video.

I'll be sure to put up some pics and vids after fitting although it could be a week or two!

Actually not too bad. I picked it up for £100 shipped. It's used but doesn't have a mark on it! :)

Got the stock silencer off and had a little rev to see how it sounded:

Slid the Akrapovic over the manifold (not airtight) to get a sample of the sound... :rollin

Heres a pic of how it was on: Image

nothing goes wrong with Akrapovic except Police :copper
anyway make sure you seal those joints/connecting points properly then you'll def. get sweet sound like in here


isn't it sweet?! :love

The way it was mounted it was not sealed at all and was just slid over the manifold with loads of Room around it so I think it will sound even nicer when it's fitted properly, need to find some stainless tube though.

Got my 'link pipe' made up so I think I'm ready to slip it on tomorrow! I got a guy off ebay to make me a foot long 45mm stainless tube with a larger diameter at one end (51mm) and slits to clamp on to where im cutting the stock pipe. Tidy clamps arrived too.
Could do with a polish though!
