Yes, around $50-$60. Dealers should have them. Bought mine from BOSS 2 years ago.

RE: where to get spark arrestors for 08 AKRA slip on

I got one from the dealer for my Akro with the small opening. I wanted the larger opening one but they only sell it in europe, so I decided not to use it and instead created my own custon large opening spark arrestor by spot welding a different one onto my modified Acro silencer insert. Now I got big sound with big power. I doesn't meet db ratings but what do I care?

You should care because noise is our # 1 enemy!
The stock sparky meets sound & makes great power!
Sparky inserts are 59.95 & in stock @ Boss!

I got a stock spark arrestor. Its in my tool box. The bikes jettet with the bigger opening. And its got my custom spark arrestor. And its not that much louder than the other one but a little more HP. Give me a break!

I think the reason BOSS said something is because you said you didn't care if it was loud. You may not, but WE do, because once an area is closed, it is closed to all of us, not just the irresponsible and selfish ones who don't realize their actions impact all others.

I'm not trying to flame you or pile on to what the others have said, but you should care enough to realize what you do affects all of us.

Do you know how loud my bike is when I said Big power and Big sound? And do you know how much too loud it is over the legal decibles? And do you know where I ride? I might ride with Harleys that blow my sound away. I do ride trails. I don't hammer down throttle around houses, Border patrol Rangers and wherever else I think might bother someone. Maybe your afraid I'll blow a frogs ear-drum out. I know what I want and I got it. Why don't you check out my CRF 450 also. Bring your instruments and then go do a little servey at various off road areas.You might be surprised how many bikes out there don't pass sound test. So don't make me out to be the bad guy when you know very little about me just because I said WHAT DO I CARE.

Caring about sound output should be a concern to all. Noisy bikes are a major driver to close down access to the bush all over the world. We are generally out of sight in the bush, but not allways out of mind as we are heard by many. If they couldn't hear us, then they mostly wouuldn't know we were there, and wouldn't care. Just because other bikes are noisy is not an excuse for us to be too.

Frog health is a major indicator of habitat health, and we should care about frogs too. Responsible, sustainable and quiet use of the bush should be our goal.

Since were talking about Akropovic in particular, I was just wondering that if the whole world cared as much as us in the U.S. about sound then why is the larger diameter spark arrestor sold in Europe. Am I wrong? My dealer said it was available there. And if so, its OK for the frogs in Europe, since they determined it's not to loud for them.
