Yeah, Akra says -3.7kg with the header & -2.5kg with the slip on.
I think the 3.7kg must be a combination of the two. Would be the only explanation.

I just remembered that the akra header can only be used with the akra slip on. So the minus 3.7kg would be combined for the full exhaust. Which 3.7kg is 8.1 lbs.

12lbs-8.1lbs = 4lbs? That's heavy? Probably doesn't justify the extra cost but I wouldn't call it heavy.

No it drops the 8.1lbs. Also people need to get better at exhaust videos. So many shove the microphone up the tail pipe and over power the mic so it just sounds terrible.

Still no idea about what I exhaust I want.

I can verify that they do suck complete and total ball sack in the rain. Just take it really easy and you will be fine.

Yeah I was pulling into my neighborhood at 5-10 mph and it slid a little. I'll wait till my "race" tires get mounted. Then I'll go like 15 mph.

The turn into my neighborhood isn't one to push it on. Not sure how fast I did some of the turns around here. I'll get some GPS data at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and post it up.

Got up to 66mph on a down hill but was able to maintain it on the flat road until the next up hill. I was surprised at how well I could do on the freeway but I won't make it a habit of going on there.

I also hit 200 miles on the grom today. I switched my order from renthal bars to pro taper and my order should finally ship today. Rear ohlin shock should be shipping soon as well. When are we doing a mod day?

Do they normally have a vibration at idle, and pulling in the brake lever makes it go away?? I rode one last weekend, got it up to 70mph full tuck Vance and Hines style, just noticed that vibration at stops. Not in gear.
