Very nice! Good to know that it fits. When will you be able to get out on it, given the crap weather we're having?

Well done!
I can't face getting my still showroom-condition bike covered in mud and crap in the lanes where I live. I'm hopefully getting it couriered down to Spain in January so I'm keeping my powder dry for the time being!


Did you notice any performance improvements?

Not really, I think the stock chrome can is quite free flowing, the Scorpion made more noise with the baffle out, the Akra has fixed baffles so its pretty quiet, I didn't want to make more noise just lose the chrome

Given the impact of the silencer shape on the engine performance, are you sure the R1200R will perform as espected with a silencer not designed for its engine ?

Why has he said they’re for the RT ? How can you tell they’re for the R, is it the number printed on the can?
Thanks for the heads up!

1200LC and 1250 have completely different exhaust systems from the header back

Hi, what makes you certain it will fit a r1250r ?
I did some research on the part number printed on the back, and its listed for an R1250R and RS, also the only fitment with the twin outlet that I can find is for the 1250, the reason its listed for an RT is because the seller knows it fits an RT, I'm pretty sure it will fit a 2015 R1200R because it is fitted to mine

The 1200R Akra end can that I was selling fits the 1250 too. Kind of Akrapovic to keep that one quiet. I tried fitting it yesterday and I had it on in 20 mins. I’d previosly mulled over the Akra website and it misleads you into thinking that a 1200R end can won’t fit the 1250R......

Well, that’s a revelation, @Mark7. Without comparing the two side by side, my impression was the mid pipe angles were quite different.

But clearly I was ... W. R. O. N. G. ...

It’s all trial and error tbh, you would never know this stuff without messing with it.......

Might have got a bit too excited @Panzermann and should have shown a little restraint and respect. It will never happen again...
