    The stock Euro map will be shit as well, we have to comply with even stricter emissions than you guys. All Bergs except the FX are street legal and come restricted to about 10 horses from the factory here (my 570 officially has 11).

    Competition map sounds right, but if you want to make sure then find out the exact map numbers and compare them.

    Nice! You can ship it down here to Georgia and I will hold onto it for you until you move. Don't want it getting scratched up or anything up there! :)

    Did you say you got that from justgastanks.com?

    well I bought it technically from ktm-parts.com but they just drop shipped it to me from justgastanks and because of that they wouldnt give the normal 10% discount they normally give... so justgastanks is the better way to go.

    Last weekend, I tore down the bike. Removed the header/midpipe for coating. Black ceramic on the outside and high temp coating on the inside. Should get it back this week.

    Anyone tried a Wings exhaust? I was going to get the Akra but the Wings winter pricing is pretty good.

    I have never heard of the company before. I cant seem to find pricing anywhere. What are they charging? Is it just a slip on?

    If you do pull the trigger please share your thoughts

    When I get confused, I try to rely on what one of my buddies used to tell me; it's supposed to go rubber side down. It can be challenging to remember at speed.

    Fit, Finish and Sound is as good as an Akropovic slip on, pricing was about 100$ less.

    Looks pretty good. Thanks. The akra's are around $600 now from what I've seen. Pretty steep IMO and the Wings looks like a good option.
