Cool Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust Kawasaki Ninja 1000 2014-2019 ON SALE!

I had my eye on these pipes for the longest. Sale, plus income tax equals PIPES!

The sale is still on! I have a small scratch on mine already. Don't know how or if I did it, or they came that way. It bums me out, but whatever. I can't keep her perfect, just have to wash and ride til the next bike comes along. You guys get it.

$1096 after tax @revzilla. That's $200 cheaper than from Kawasaki, and +$300 cheaper than normal revzilla pricing.

Theres nothing that looks better. Also, the money side of it really isnt that bad. If you keep them in good condition, it will be a long time before they are worth less than 500-600 , used.

The most expensive thing, for me, has been the feeling of looking at my bike and knowing I did not buy what I wanted. I've been paying that price since 2012. Back then, I could have had what you have for about 400.00 more than the Leo Vince system I have.

I don't disagree that they look good. I have the Leo Vince Factory S. Which model do you have? I like mine but they kinda sound like a car?

Leo Vince was a different company when I bought mine (2012) Since then, I believe they went bankrupt, then started again...something like that.

When I bought mine, they had three systems for this bike. Sort of a low life, 300.00 version, midrange, and an upper end, all carbon model. Mine was called the "LV One", and I know I didnt pay over 350.00 for it. In fact, it was 24.00 because I had some sort of discount code from motorcyclegrear.com.

I cant complain as it looks brand new. Its just not what I wanted.

Sound? LOL I dont know what it is, but I am the worlds worst judge of sound. I can tell if something is loud, or quiet, but as far as judging sound quality, I just dont have that ability A 500.00 dollar stereo sound system, and a 5000.00 dollar system sound the same , to me. A 5.00 set of headphones dont really sound any different than a 350.00 set of Bose. I dont hear a triple and think it sounds good . A cross plane r1 does sound good, but It doesn't sound different than my bike. If you had a Leo System vs an Akra system, I 100% guarantee they would sound the same to me.

The car sound comment is a good one. Seriously, Im not sure theres anything that different in our engines than a small, compact car. Yes, ours are smaller, and turn more rpm, but there is a lot of common ground.

^^ Thanks for the information sir. Come to think of it, when I had my prior, Leo Vince wasn't really a consideration. But this time around, they look really nice.
I "hear" you about the distinction in sounds. I have somewhat of an ear for sounds being the son of a musician. However, I find myself unable to always hear slight differences that others may me mention.

I couldn’t keep this to myself. I shared it as soon as I bolted mine on first.
