Cool Blue Flame or AKRAPOVIC... - February 6, 2008, 07:30 PM

I'm buying a slip on pipe soon and I'm having a hard time choosing from these two pipes. Which one between these two only is better or even if they're the same I would just like some of your thoughts?

I would venture a guess that the Akro is better but I am not a Yam guy. I am sure there are better pipes out there for both so I would do more research.

I'd get the Akra... But I would also hold off a while, save a few dollars and get a full system and pcIII...

If you are simply doing a slip on no real difference in performance gains....

Blue Flames are neat pipes - and not as cookie cutter as many of the others.

Thanks everybody. I'm going with the Akro. Because it got the most vote and the wait time for the Blue flame is too long. I have to figure a way to talk my wife into getting me the pcIII.
