2009 R1 Mod (exhaust) - September 17, 2009, 11:28 AM

Ok - same old story - slip on versus full system for a 2009 R1.

I was thinking of going with this system:
http://gpmotoparts.com/product.php?p...at=2684&page=1


Or would I go with Cat eliminator link pipes to slip on and avoid the Power commander/Bazaaz mapping? I hear eliminating the cat reduces heat....any truth to that?

I am not worried about cost as much as I am dialing it in. I do not want to spend the next few months visiting local dyno's - but the stock exhaust has got to go.

Thanks!

The thing with the 09 R1 is, there is no exup. If you get slipons w/ Y pipe, IMO, it won't be too much different than a full system. I opted for the full Akro since the slipons were $1100 and the Y pipe was $450. $1550 for slipon & y-pipe, or $1750 for the full system. I figured I might as well spend the extra $200. I'm not sure how clearances are on the Leo system, but I can BARELY change my oil without removing the whole exhaust.

And yes, it reduces heat.

Thanks for the info - i cannot imagine having to drop the exhaust for an oil change, that would be a nightmare of leo had even worse clearance than your akro - i get annoyed enough at removing the plastic on the 954 to change the oil.

My fear alone oil change hell requires me to go cat eliminator and slip ons....

Not enough to warrant the $1750...but they are all around the same price(decent systems).

No problem. Yeah, the oil filter is a bitch to get out with the stock headers, and even worse with the Akro headers. I also can't get a socket on the drain bolt.. I have to use a wrench, and that BARELY fits.

I haven't read anything on the r1-forum about the Leo's clearance issues. And there's plenty of people running them. When I bought my exhaust, it was the only thing available at the time.. But my second choice were the Leo's.. I was just impatient. lol

so I am liking the leo's....removed the internal reducer and it is not crazy loud. The one thing I did not do is put the spacers in from the top mount to cans...they appeared too low and kind of awkard when I had them in...but now I am worried about the pipes being too close to the plastic. are akro's at similar level? not seeing any discoloration in the plastic yet.


prob should check R1.net...but figured i would ask here!

Thanks!

Looks like decent clearance to me I think you should be just fine but don't take my word for it! I'm sure the R1 guru nick will steer u clear in the am. You will more then likely have problems with discoloration of white plastics regardless of spacers.

Looks like you've got more than enough clearance. Remember, the factory set up is closer than what you've got there along the sides vertically where there isn't a plastic heat shield and from the looks, no discoloration on yours.
