2015 model exhaust
on: March 11, 2015, 03:09:46 PM
Am considering a 2015 Crossrunner to replace my Crosstourer.
I'll want to give it a bit more volume (I had a VFR800 a couple of years ago which sounded great with Remus silencers - not a great quality clip but you get the picture - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTKR3-fmtmc).
Does anyone know if the Akrapovic exhaust that comes with the 2015 model has a removable baffle?
If not there don't look to be many (if any) aftermarket options available yet.
Although possibly silencers for 2011-14 models will fit?
Cheers,
Andrew.

Yup, the baffle comes out, haven't taken mine out yet but will get round to it sometime.
It could be a bitch to put back in again as there isn't much room to start the bolt.

Thanks Derek, in which case if I get one will take the baffle out the day I get it!
Will report back...
Cheers,
Andrew.

Well that's the baffle out Andrew, not much of a baffle though, the whole thing is only 140mm long
and that includes the fixing, what it does do is leave a big hole and makes a lovely deep tone, not unlike
a big V Twin, certainly wakes up the muppets in their cages as well.

Try this, GoPro tends to quieten things down a bit, does have a nice growl to it though.

Thanks Derek  :001:

That looks like pretty much the same silencer that I've got on my Crosstourer but on the 1200 it sounds weedy, sounds much better on the 800.
Cheers,
Andrew.

Hi,

Has anyone found yet another alternative for the akrapo, for the 2015 model?

Cheers,
