Let me doubt about your assertion. Even in high remote mountains, noisy exhaust can be heard many miles away, and I assume you are certainly not alone in those remote areas : wildlife, and of course people searching for silence and tranquility...

Conclusion from this is that while the bike is less than 2 years old and one wants to change things, do things such as tail tidy, rim stickers (if one wants), bar end mirrors etc but avoid anything mechanical.
No it will not void the warranty. It may void certain items covered under warranty but not all.
As I mentioned earlier, it MAY void some engine related parts from being covered. Valves, piston, etc.
IF it can be proven to be the cause of the failure. But changing your exhaust will not void the coverage on electrical, wheel,
brake, frame, etc. failures or defects.

Hi. My bike is out of warranty but with only just having 4000km logged I have to ask......
Would putting an aftermarket exhaust which probably does NOT have a catalytic converter actually damage your engine??

Nope, it will not hurt your engine in any way shape or form, the full closed loop F.I. will compensate for any additional fueling needs.

Only some of the time apparently BikeBoy.org - Fuel Injection – Open Loop and Closed Loop An interesting read, which also makes me wonder about my usual method of removing the battery and storing it indoors for the winter.

The interesting thing I got out of that is that the bike will suck in around 10L of air every second on average.

I replaced Akra few days ago and got my inspection passed today. Now legal approved for riding in Singapore.
It passed emission and sound test as legal.

After exhaust replacement I have replaced sprockets to 16T-39T for better fuel economy as the torque is higher than original exhaust need to replace the gearing for better economy.

Revzilla sells the Carbon Fiber Akrapovic exhaust for $536.00 which is maybe 10% or less the cost of bike, Not 20%


You can also get for less from other dealers.


I do not know why you would even want to bother trying to modify the stock exhaust.
