Akrapovic for 2010 FE450...Is it worth it?

Hey there...

Just joined the website and will officially be part of the Husaberg family in a few days as I purchased a 2010 FE 450.

Been thinking about mods and was looking at the Akra exhaust. A bit pricey at $700.

Can folks share their thoughts on the Akra exhaust? Is it worth it? What the benefits are? Is it much louder? Does it come w/ a spark arrestor?

Thanks

I've got an Akrapovic end can for my FE390 and it makes a really big difference. The standard exhaust is a bit restrictive at the top end and seems to run out if revs whereas the Akrapovic opens up the engine quite a bit. TBH it doesn't sound any louder than the standard just a bit more of a growl! A well worth purchase IMO.

Have you or anyone else seen dyno runs to prove this "big difference"? 7-8 hundred dollars seems RIDICULOUS to me.
These bikes cost plenty already. I seriously doubt any difference you might think you are feeling is worth the money. If you need more power... you should have gotten a bigger engine. If it's less weight you're after... go on a diet. You might also consider the cost to replace it if you should damage it in a crash. Remember, the pro's get paid to use these things, their salary comes from your pocket. Do the math.

I was lucky enough to buy a bike with a standard and aftermarket akropovic exhaust so my experience comes from riding one back to back. IMO the aftermarket exhaust gives it more top end as I said, it definately feels better but I haven't had it on a dyno so cannot say if it does produce the power differently it just "feels" different.
