Akrapovic Carbon Exhaust

Recommended Posts

hondanike
Hi guys, I just finished installing my Akrapovic exhaust. It took me longer than expected, about three hours. I haven't ridden it yet due to the missing reduction insert for the lambda sensor (ordered from Revzilla). Oh boy, this thing is loud even with the baffle in. Hopefully, it doesn't attract too much attention from cops in Cali, finger crossed. Anyway, here are some pictures:

Looks nice. I really considered that pipe before I ended up with my Two Bros. I always wondered why on the carbon version of the akra why they put that 360 loop before the can.
 
oh and my two bros shipped without the reducer and holy hell it was loud! I was turning heads a block away. I put in the reducer a few days ago and now it is perfect!

Dewski, To answer the question, why the loop?
 
I was told the AK Carbon was engineered that way to increase back pressure to compensate for the short length of pipe and muffler.
 
to hondanike, thanks for posting all the pics and let us know how you perceive the sound.  Do you have the phone App for decibels? Maybe you can give us a reading at idle and mid throttle.  Just curious.

Looks like you could scrape it around turns without dropping your knee

I took the baffle out before I installed mine. I honestly don't think it's THAT loud; it's just so much louder than stock, that everyone perceives it as being super loud. It also feels like it's at its loudest when you're idling and you crack the throttle. Under loud just doesn't seem quite as loud as a quick crack of the throttle from idle. I'm going to try to do another video of mine from a distance to see if I can show this. The first video I did with the mic mounted on the passenger footrest didn't really pick that up. I think the mic was just too close to the exhaust outlet.

It doesn't even stick out past the driver's footrest.

That's the same company I'm gonna order from, but now I'm skeptical of it, if you said parts are missing, unbefuckingleavabke

Does the catalytic converter come with the akra carbon full system?

And... Is it required to not have an rejet on engine done

Come on... don't quote entire posts filled with a wall of pictures.
 
1. I wasn't missing parts.
 
2. No specified length on the warranty.
 

Akrapovič makes no representation or warranties with regard to damage caused by the improper installation, use and maintenance of the Akrapovič exhaust system. The warranty is limited to defects recognized by
our technical department and due to normal use, and excludes items subject to normal wear (gaskets and
damping wool). The guarantee is void in case of accident, modification, improper or competition use.
 
3. The Catalytic Converter not only does not come with the Carbon system (nor does it come with the Titanium system), but it also does not work with the Carbon system.
 
4. The FZ-07 utilizes an Electronic Fuel Injection system, so you don't need to "rejet" the (non-existent) carb. ;) My bike runs perfectly fine without reprogramming the ECU.

Do you even know what an EJK is? USMC just said his bike runs fine without reprogramming his ECU.
 
A fuel managing device (may it be Dobeck's EJK or DynoJet's PCV), is like a hacking tool to trick the ECU into spitting out more or less fuel. It doesn't "reprogram" the ECU. You actually have to program the EJK/PCV with "maps" on how much fuel your bike needs at whatever RPM for whatever gear you're in. If I'm not mistaken, with the PCV, you can also adjust your ignition timing (tells your spark plug when to spark).
 
Since this bike has an EFI, this is called "tuning" and not "rejetting".
 
Only reason to get a fuel manager is if you want to get every little bit of hp/torque out of this bike or if by some odd reason, you're running dangerously lean or too rich and the bike boggs. One way to tell if the bike is running lean is to do a plug check, which in our case is not easily accessible. Another way is an AFR gauge that will tell you your fuel ratio.
 
Fuel management is very complicated stuff. That's why they have specialists who make good money tuning bikes.

No, it doesn't require the fuel controller. My bike still runs fine like from the factory after 2000 miles with the exhaust. There is no noticeable change beside the awesome sound.

Nice right up and close up pix of the carbon @hondanike
 
I got my Akra carbon in November or December. Akropovic forgot to include my O2 sensor reducer too!! Them sums a bitchs....got it about two weeks later. I just plugged it with 12mm oil drain plug and it ran fine and never threw any codes.
 
Edit: that seems like a lifetime ago for me so I'm not positive on the 12mm

Except that is a plug instead of a reducer.

Looks like you got what you need right there man. The only difference would be the inside is reduced and threaded for the sensor.

I have this exhaust and the EJK and with the settings Doebeck recommended I'm getting a lot of back firing at mid range. Called Dobeck and they want me to look at the EJK while I'm riding to see what lights are on while it pops???? It's under the passenger seat and I don't have 3 feet of extra wire on it ????
 
Now I'm gonna have to go pay the shop to put it on the dyno to figure out settings that should have been figured out at the factory.

Mine runs fine without the controller. There is some popping sound when you let go of the throttle, but even the stock exhaust has that.

Hey Honda do you also get a ratchety clicking from the muffler (canister) when idling and while decelerating the throttle to off position, that's when I hear it.. I think it's normal, but just curious
