Hi,

Just replaced the Akropovic can on my SMC as it fell apart beyond repair.

I bought a new Leo Vinci ally can from e-bay (£208), quality is good, fitted perfectly & sounds good, with baffle in it is noisier than the Akra with baffle in but performance feels same as Akra with baffle out (seat of the pants dyno).

Weather it'll last as long I will probably never know.. the Akra lasted 26k, but needed repacking @ 10k

cheers

My Akra lasted around the same sort of mileage over 2 690's, but I got it rebuilt and it's as good as new, well had to order a new carbon tip as well which hurt!! How did you break it that much, I thought I had abused mine thoroughly but it looks as good as new after being in the hands of an expert for an hour or so :D

FEW NIGGLES, WARPED FRONT DISC(S), MISTED/DUST IN INSTRUMENT(S)
All fixed under warranty.

Still runs sweet...

Now i've said that... next post "SMC grenades itself"...

Akra burned all packing which in turn left the inner portion of the carbon cap exposed, that burned too, then the ti exit pipe cracked where the baffle mounted, repacked & re-riveted twice, got fed up in the end, dont think it was worth the £400...
