Akrapovic Silencer - Yamaha MT-07 / Tracer 700 / XSR 700
Customer Product Reviews
Excellent & Efficient Service
Ordered the Akrapovic Titanium exhaust online and it arrived the next day. The box it came in had been damaged in several places. Once the box was opened, all parts were un-damaged due to the good quality wrapping around the parts. Exhaust was very easy to fit and an instruction booklet is provided. The exhaust is the best quality I've seen from an aftermarket exhaust and the sound with the baffle in, is just the right note for me. Would definitely buy an Akrapovic.
Bought the carbon for my XSR700. Fit pretty simply although instruction would have been nicer if they were a bit more detailed. But I found some decent YouTube videos to help me along the way. The Sound seems decent, loud and throaty but not blow your ear drums.
MT 07 - Carbon Exhaust
Really happy with the exhaust. Sports bike shop shipped it straight away despite the delays with Covid. Think I had it the next day!! The exhaust looks and sounds brilliant. Sounds better in person than what you hear on YouTube. I went for this over the titanium due to the price. Make sure you order new gaskets and and whatever else you may need to fit this. Word of advice, if the bolts on the exhaust header have any rust when fitting make sure you know what you're doing (previous owner left it out in the rain). I managed to snap one off but luckily got this sorted and I am really please with the end product. I can't stress how much this improves the sound from the stock exhaust. Loud with the baffle in!!
akrapovic carbon system
fitment is perfect. Install was easy and comes with copper anti-seize which is a helpful for the people with less experience with maintenance on bikes etc. the manual is easy to follow with pictures for each step. Tells you where and when to apply anti-seize and specific torque for all fasteners. Finally, the most important, it sounds amazing! not too loud on idle or when cruising. But loud when you pin it. Highly recommend. Then all topped off with the super fast delivery and service from sportsbikeshop. 5 out of 5 for product and service
The exhaust looks and sounds incredible, videos don't do it justice. It's expensive, and there are other good quality exhausts out there for a lot less hence only 4 stars. I opted for this one as sportsbikeshop were offering it at a great discounted price.
The quality of the product is seen straight away from the packaging. The quality of the exhaust is seen in the Carbon Fibre weave and the lightness of the system. Smooth welds on the stainless steel and the sound quality of the exhaust when fitted is next to none. I highly recommend this exhaust
Well made, simple to fit, quick delivery
Great full sound from the exhaust without being obnoxious (baffle in). The instructions are clear and fitting straightforward. Delivery was prompt and brilliantly packaged. Great all round package and good service from Sportsbikeshop, zero complaints!
Baffle in = quiet, baffle out = asbo
The pipe is beautiful and does look amazing. It comes with the baffle installed which is a bit of an eyesore compared to running no baffle. The only benefit to having the baffle in is that your ears drums don't rupture when you blip the throttle. I suppose it is also good to make use of it if you live in a residential area and don't want a horde of angry people with pitchforks chasing you. Regardless, I choose to risk that so thought I'd write this review prior to be spitroasted by the locals. The only con to this exhaust is the price. It costs a lot but you'll love each minute riding with it so just suck it up and rinse your wallet!
Sounds and looks great
Fantastic exhaust system sounds and looks great! with dB killer out only bad bit is the hassle getting DB killer out you may need to borrow or purchase a bearing puller and remove the screw first. Would highly recommend this system...
Titanium - sounds great
Amazing sound. Took the DB-killer out because it was a little too quiet to my liking before. What a difference! With the DB-killer out it sounds mad... Definitely the best mod anyone can ever do to their MT-07. Highly recommended!
Quality service from Sportsbikeshop, I ordered this item over the phone as they had not got my original order in stock for another three weeks, so I substituted it for the Akrapovic carbon which came the very next day in time for my birthday. Very easy to fit with comprehensive instructions. Once fitted to the Bike I started it up and nearly had an orgasm, sounds absolutely awesome. Very loud and gets you noticed in traffic. I did take the baffle out before I fitted it, put it back in for a day, removed it again when I got home. Missed the bark it makes with it out. Definitely recommend this item and the service provided by Sportsbikeshop.
A little bit of noise
What can I say about the Akrapovic system fitted to my MT 07. First off the exhaust looks very well made, no rough welds or bends. Fitting was relativity easy, just had to slide the collector off the down pipes to move them apart a bit to get them to align on the cylinderhead exhaust ports. The rest was follow the instructions with no drama. I initially removed the baffles, which to be honest wasn't too bad but it did take some time which was a pain. The noise with the baffles out was LOUD, VERY LOUD. Several hours of riding with them out told me it was too much for me, they are now back in and I'm much happier. Noise wise with the baffles in is a bit louder than stock with a slightly deeper base. I might try drilling the baffles in the future to get a little bit more noise who knows. Overall I very happy with how it looks and sounds.
Transforms the bike, good looks and sound
Quick and communicative dispatch by SBS as always. I called up by telephone to confirm which parts I needed and the chap was very helpful (I also bought the cat to make it street legal). I wanted to write a comprehensive review as there were a few concerns I had before buying myself. In terms of sound the bike was too quiet as stock and I actually felt vulnerable that people couldn't hear my presence, but I also didn't want a silly boy-racer/ wake up the neighbours pipe either. This is just the right balance; on the bike it's between noticeable without getting embarrassing. Having worked in the trade (including for HD) this is a very nice sound too that brings out the twin's firing rhythm. Sounds great coming out of corners from low revs and there's a lovely burble on the over-run once it's hot too. As for performance, mine is still being run in but throttle pick-up is noticeably more instant and the difference in weight against the standard system is also very noticeable. Regarding aesthetics, the system looks top quality. The welding is nice and tidy and the springs/covers look good. One positive that I noticed immediately is that the system is so compact; the pictures actually don't do it justice as from the rear it's difficult to actually see any exhaust. From the side, it's very tidy and overall it complements the bikes style rather than sticking out. It was easy to fit in about an hour taking my time (and would be for any decent diy'er). The instructions that came with it were clear, with pictures, and can be downloaded from the Akropovic website too. I actually did extensive research before settling on this pipe, nothing else that I could find really did it justice for me, without looking a little too 'bolt-on' in my personal opinion. The only difference between this and the version that Yamaha offer is an engraving that says the bikes name and a price difference that I decided I might regret spending afterward. I'm glad I went for this now as I quite like the Akra stickers in their standard yellow, red & black colours. If I had to find fault, I would say the sticker on the silencer is a little too easy to snag and peel until it's been run a few times (so basically during installation, as afterward it's out of the way, under the bike). After a few runs on the bike now, I'm very happy.
