I'm running 606 & 908 and have been happy to date. run two sets of tyres & rims. the other set has scorpions for the road (ish) blasts

Did 2200k the other weekend up to Barrington & Mt Seaview and then back via stockton.

No problems although the last few corners into Gingers Creek on the seal in the rain weren't the best.

if they made an e09 Dakar in a 18/140 I would try that but they only make 17/140. the Dakar is the shit for my AT.

You must be bored Hodgo to be reading ADV.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Out. On the 990 got an extra 1 -2 km a litre with them out. Plus, I reckon with Akros you pay $100 for materials and workmanship and $1700 for sound (+ profit).

so my 990 is a little on the jerky side. Anything less than 4000rpm it no likely.

Constant throttle, no good.

So as much as it's a 2009 model that some in OC said was better, it don't mean shit. So I'm about to do the throttle cams.

Guy at work has done it, who had originally recommended it, hopefully it sorts out. Or I go into this thread and do the next steps. Felt like a bit of a numpty in the work car park as if I was almost bunny hopping with the throttle at constant.

Others here use them?

This bike turns you into a hooligan, maybe I should just shutup & ride it.....

Akras, baffles out, good throttle body synch, prefilter, stock jetting, new hoses and lines (they seem to perish and leak easy), piss all the SAS and EPC off and it runs sweet as a nut and not even a hint of backfiring or popping on the overun
Smoooooooth as and sounds horn!

I only went to teknic as so many people here rave about them....

This is only my experience of course.
Thats good the guy was not like that.
I am not into that sort of stuff.
I have had a chat to Nick and he is one of the nice guys.

Wrong valving and spring rates.

Strange how the different suspension tuners have different spring rates.

Those emulators, what the idea behind them ?

Akras without baffles.

I know some don't like the "loud pipes save lives" idea... but my experience is that it does work. People hear you there.

Akros without baffles

All ktm twin dealers have the map for this set up . Usually you just need to attach the pipes and leave the bike idle for 5 minutes and the bikes computor will make adjustments and then you just ride. If you are getting a heap of backfiring you may look at putting the baffles back in .
