    Can you strap a turbo to this bike?

    Some turbo'd scooters on YouTube.

    Could be useful for highway passing power and various shenanigans.

    I sourced a longer bolt and a shorter spacer from a hardware store...but that didn't work out either as you can see from the photos I posted. I would recommend swapping the single mount can for a double to avoid the consequences...

    The mounting 'ears' on the can are welded on...if you have a single 'eared' can I would look into swapping for a double mount or welding on another mounting 'ear'.

    Yeah, I agree, paying for their faulty design sucks the big one...and I had to swallow ; (

    I questioned them 3 times about the collateral damage on my bike...they never acknowledged...the diplomatic way of saying 'tough shit'...and the terms are in the small print BTW so...

    As for the bad review fine, they'd have to collect it from my dead, cold fingers after getting past my 12 gauge short barrel...

    FYI - I received a response from Akrapovic America LLC on my inquiry. The rep indicated that the factory has approved a new sleeve kit and fitting kit. I was sent a warranty form and ask to fill it out and respond. I'll keep all posted

    The folks listed in the article may not have paid either however they got a black mark reported to Esperian and TRW dropping their credit rating for not paying the fine so now they no longer qualify for loans or credit.

    Hopefully Akrapovic will do the right thing and pay to fix their mistake and make things right.

    Is there a bike performance riding course in the California area? A course that shows how to ride. I know of the MSF course, but a course that shows turns and spirited riding.

    There are plenty of tracks in so cal, so no doubt riding/racing courses can be found.

    You mean something like the MSF Advanced Riders courses? The MSF course you take to get you motorcycle license is the Basic Riders course.

    Regards,
    Odd replying to myself - but thought I'd give an update. Late November, Akrapovic America LLC indicated that they approved the warranty claim and that the part is "made to order" so expect 4-6 week lead time. Part just arrived at their warehouse and was shipped out via UPS

    Akro is THE exhaust company IMHO and I deal with a lot of pipes. Glad to hear they are working for rather than against you. I get to modify an entire shipment of scooter pipes today to fix a manufacturer's issue...trust me.
