Akrapovic Carbon Fiber Exhaust Hanger Bracket

Want to get rid of the ugly OEM passenger peg? Want a real kit part on your BMW? Here’s the perfect solution for anyone with a full-length exhaust system like the one from Akrapovic. For maximum quality control, this carbon fiber exhaust bracket is fabricated in-house at Akrapovic. Like everything else from the world-famous exhaust manufacturer, it is built with real-world racing experience at the top level in two-wheeled motorsport.

If you have to have the same bracket that’s holding the exhaust onto BMW’s factory WSBK, this is the one specified in their kit instructions.

This exhaust hanger is not available on our website. To get yours, call TJ at 866.931.6644 ext 817. You can also email your questions to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM with BMW HANGER in the subject line and we’ll get back to you right away.

The Akrapovic exhaust hanger comes as you see here. Simply re-use the OEM hardware to attach it to the subframe and use the supplied nut, bolt and washers to attach the muffler.


Notice how thick the carbon fiber is. Laying up carbon fiber this thick is not easy, but is required to insure reliability.


Thick carbon fiber is further strengthened at both subframe attachment points with this built-in spacer.




OEM bracket at left, Akrapovic unit on the right. The Akrapovic hanger is less than half the weight of the BMW part: 0.25lbs –vs- 0.85 lbs. You save even more weight when you take into consideration the footpeg (not shown) that’s also removed with this piece.


Here it is installed on the RidersDiscount BMW S1000RR racebike.

The full system will come with a bracket extension that mounts to the passenger peg mount. If you plan on removing the passenger pegs this is an alternative to try.
