Hi guys, just bought my 2018 GSX-R 1000R and I am starting to order parts to mount. Right now, I am between 2 exhausts and I would like to ask for you opinion about it. My options right now are:
  • Akraprovic Evolution Full ti
  • Spark Full ti + Konix ti muffler
This Spark exhaust is similar with Brock's I know. I am not considering other exhausts, however if you have precious information about what others have better than these, feel free to share.

I will post the list of mods I want to do soon, stay tuned!

It’s been proved that sparks system puts out more horsepower with all other mods being equal. It has to do with how the headers are mated together. 1/4 and 2/3 vs akrapovic’s 1/2 and 3/4

Thanks for replying.
I already noticed that, however I am not sure if Spark has that configuration in both SS and TI. I have to make sure the only thing it changes is the material.

They are identical in material. I inquired about the same thing prior to purchasing mine and they confirmed everything was identical and the only thing that changed was the material. I got mine from velox racing. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic I believe almost every business in Europe is closed.

Thats good news for me, thanks for the info!
Yeah, with this pandemic I really don't know how long will they take to deliver. However, Portugal is way closer than the US, let's see what they answer.

Amazon.com: Sprint air Filter P08 F1-85 Suzuki GSXR 1000 2017-2020: Automotive This is the filter I have for mine. It has as much flow as the 16 but is waterproof and has better filtration.
I personally am staying away from anything that is not a paper filter for a bike ridden mostly on the street. My buddies L7 with 13K miles was absolutely filthy. I would say 70% covered with grim on the side that takes air in. on the engine side clean. These filters can not clean as well as OEM paper ones and for what may be 1 to 2 hp gain it's not worth it if you plan on keeping the machine for any length of time. Keep the paper filter save your money and change it often IMHO.

Thanks for the info! I am thinking about Sprint so I think I just have to decide between P08 or the F1. I used to do the maintenance every 3000 miles so I guess I could keep the filter in excellent conditions. I must admit the F1 is a bit pricey,do you guys feel it's worth the difference?
