R1 Akra muffler on S1000RR

So because I have a new bike I need a new muffler. I had the HP4 akra before and I love it. But I sort of want something different but haven't found anything I really like. I like the project sc but its too loud for what I want. I don't like arrow, yoshi or any other. But I saw this and I'm thinking it could work and would be different. What's everyones thoughts?

Slip on for R1

I think it would require some modification with a link pipe the right diameter and also bent the right way to use the same mount off the rear set as the standard bmw one.

Oh Ok, I like the look but I don't want to modify. I guess I'm back to Akro or Yosh.

Far better looking than what is available for the RR and it comes in at only 1.3 kilos.

That looks so much better than the normal one. Plus it mounts off the rear set. Do it!!

Yeah I think I'm going to macca. Will try sus one off someone whos got one first. That way I can do a quick fit up and see what needs to be done. I'm hoping the diameter is the same. Can also buy the little link pipe that BMW sell with their gen akra to extend out far enough for this muffler as BMW's stock one slips over very low down. Will need to be longer to fit the r1 pipe. I would assume the diameter will then be the same. As both akra slip ons would prob be the same.

I wouldn't be to concerned about the diameter, any fabricator would be able to knock it up quite easily

Fitment to an R1 here. Obviously full system on the R1. But once the bmw akra link pipe is fitted I think it will be the same. Just needs to come out more because the muffler only has a small slip over joint.

The carbon guard would then mount 2 holes on the muffler and then the other hole is actually on the muffler clamp that you tighten. Doubles as a shield mount and muffler clamp.
