WHAT IS THE GENERAL CONSENUS ON AKRAPOVIC EXHAUST FROM ALL YOU EXPERIENCED TYPES OUT THERE? I SEE THAT IT IS NOT CHEAP BUT IS IT WORTH THE CHING A GUY SHELLS OUT FOR IT? LET ME KNOW WHAT CHA THINK! :?:

from what I've heard its great and it gives you extra HP, but not as load as the others out there.
It all depends on what your preferences are.
Do you want performance or do you want appearance (looks/sound wise)
First figure out what you want from your exhaust, then decide from there.
IMO i have enough power to play with, Id rather go with the appearance. (BlueFlame)

They are really sweet pipes... a bit quieter than some of the ones like Blueflame or Devil.

Build quality of the ones I have seen is top notch, and from what I have heard the performance gains are pretty good. I have ridden a '99 racebike with a full Akra and it had a pretty smooth power delivery.

A friend of mine has a full evolution system on his Kawasaki 6RR and he loves it. It might not be as loud as other pipes out there but it sounds good in my opinion.

The Akra is a good pipe. I run a Yosh slip right now but when i can afford it I'm gonna go with a full Akra. Its not as loud as the yosh or micron's but then again I don't really care about the noice.
Like Malice said it really depends on what you want. Do you want performance or looks/sound. If you want sound the Microns sound great on the r6's.

Slide Stops? I think you mean power slides. These are not that hard but I recommend you practice them at a slower speed first.
Find a parking lot (one with a small amount of dirt will help you get the idea @ almost no speed) get up to like 5 mile and hour and lock up the rear brake just as you begin to turn. I usually slide to my right so I start to make a left hand turn and lock up the rear end. Be VER VERY VERY careful you can highside the shit out of your self trying these. I've watched my buddy highside him self 3 times trying these. Also once you get in the slide try and keep your weight more to the inside of the slide and don't let off the brake till you stop. Otherwise thats were the high side will get you the most.
As any other stunt start off very slow and with some patience and practice you will get were you want. To fast = broken bones and bike.
Have fun and be safe!!!!
