Another exhaust question

I know these type of question have been beaten to death but I was wondering if anybody has tried fitting a newer Akrapovic hex slip-on. I'm trying to spruce up the old girl by replacing the old 10 almost 11 year old Akrapovic hex ti slip-on with a carbon fiber one. I tried researching outlet diameter sizes of my old one and current ones to see if they match up but can't find the information. I just want to pull the old slip-on off and put a new carbon fiber using the ti mid pipe that came with the old Akrapovic hex slip-on. What do you guys think? Also which current Akrapovic model year comes closest to the original one?

Re: Another exhaust question

Have you called or emailed Akrapovic about this?

So what is the diameter of the current slip-on? Akrapovic full system mufflers are usually 60mm.

Re: Another exhaust question

I went ahead and emailed Akrapovic. I'll let you'll know what they say

Re: Another exhaust question

So I got an email back from Akrapovic where I asked about the diameter of my old slip on and if any of the newer slip ones would work with my old link pipe. I explained to them in the email that I couldn't find anymore hex slip ons for the 05-06 gsxr-1000 available to purchase. They responded to me by saying they believe parts are still available and that I could call one of their authorized distributors per a link in the email. I called. They have nothing. So anyway I measured my old hex slip-on and it measures 2 1/2 inches which works out to about 63mm. Does anybody with newer bikes know the diameter of the hex slip ons?

Re: Another exhaust question

^Like I said already, 60mm inlet size is the normal size for Akra mufflers. You need to measure the inlet size, not the OD.

Some euro bikes like S1000RR have 65mm slip ons.

I have a K9-L1 1000 Akra hex slip on (60mm) fitted to K5 1000 Akra full system.

Re: Another exhaust question

JK is right.

You could fit any 60mm inlet diameter muffler, not only akra . You may need to fabricate a hanger collar

Re: Another exhaust question

Thanks guys it appears you'll are correct. I'm going to order a 09-11 hex slip on from Moto Mummy when spring comes. I'll post a picture when I get it and install it.
