Hi guys,

I’m new here and I don’t know if someone else has already asked the same thing or not.

I have the 2021 MT09 and have already put 2000km on it. I’m looking to put a full system on it, but only available full system is from Akrapovich. I really don’t like how they made the system with the muffler installed that high so I need to look for other options. I would like to have something similar to the older models where the muffler is under.
Do you know about any other brands that have realesed anything for the 2021 MT09?

Just wait. I have the 2021 Akra Racing Line. The bike runs a lot smoother with the stock pipe. The high flow pipe makes the fuelling grabby at very low throttle. Sounds lean. Hold out on exhaust changes until the ECU is cracked I reckon. Then get it tuned with a good exhaust.

Thanks for the reply. Is the sound any different with the racing line compared to stock?

Congratulations for your honesty! That's the reason the forum exists.

I'm also interested in an after market exhaust as long as it's in similar position as stock. Under or hidden on the bike. The stock is IMO ugly as f#$k. The cost cutting on this bike isn't as evident just from pictures. Or maybe I just haven't owned a modern bike in awhile. I'm getting crash bars for this reason. I imagine this bike exploding into a million plastic pieces if there's an unfortunate collision with a car or just dropped. I've only had my SP for about a week now. Cheers!

So you got an SP??? Where do you live? I thought no SPs until August. I was about to buy a KTM 890R for a lot more than an SP, because didn't want to wait that long. I looked into a regular 09, but I was also disappointed at how cheap it looked, especially the unfinished headlight plastic. Ultra cheap looking. Is the SP one at least smooth plastic? The seat also looked no better than my first bike's back in '84 (CB700 Nighthawk S). But at least the SP has it better upholstered, but I'd replace it immediately with the comfort one anyway. Don't like it blue, but I guess I can overlook that. Hey, how do you like the suspension? I might wait for a comparison of the SP with the 890R before buying anything.

Yes. Southern California received their inventory about 3 weeks ago. Now it looks like the rest of the states have received some now. I was told by some dealers that because of demand or inventory that dealers are only getting 2 bikes at a time. They acted like they didn't have much control over what they received. Honestly, it's still a budget bike. SP or not. But I do like the improvements. Quickshifter. Drive modes.. ect.. suspension also. I took mine to a shop called Suspension Matters in my area to have professional tune it for my style of riding and weight. Factory set up was for a giant. It was stiff af. The ride is better now since they set it up. I could have done it myself but.. I'm no Dave Moss 🤭 If I had the money, I'd would have gotten that KTM. It's premium price is justified by its premium parts. IMO. With that said, I would have been just as happy with the standard model MT09. I Only got the SP because it was what was available. I wanted the black or blue one and the dealer only had grey or the SP.

Of course. It sounds ****ing awesome.
Is that stock??? If yes, then I wholeheartedly agree. Ha ha. The only thing I'd like to do to the stock exhaust is paint the metal part black. And the part surrounding the 2 outlets maybe silver, to add contrast, and make it visible. But with that sound, no need to change anything. Plus you'd be raising the CG anyway, plus risking damage to the can on a fall. The Akra I saw looks like absolute crap; no way I'd put that thing even if I got paid big bucks. Ha ha.

I am waiting for black widow to come out with their system. There was one on a 19 MT09 that I rented and it sounded amazing and incredibly affordable.

No no that is with the Akra racing line fitted. Stock pipe is pretty good sounding, but has no pops and punch. Sounds much more mellowed.

Yeah I personally like the tucked in look of the stock pipes on the previous gen MTs. On my FZ I had the newer Akra Ti because of that, and because it wasnt too loud.
But honestly from the all the videos I've seen the new MT has a great sounding stock pipe and intake. Now if somebody in the aftermarket just made an under cowl to cover up the look of it...

Or how about a tucked in exhaust that looks like the ones on their Motogp bikes - big slash cut with mesh over it.

Surely Akra will come out with a tucked in version, right??!! That's what I'm going to wait for.

I just pre-ordered the new Yoshi yesterday. I hummed and hawed about the other two offerings I know (Akra & Arrow), but the low mount Yoshi just looks the best IMO. I loved the R77 I had on my MT-07. I do wish they had released a Carbon variant of the new 09 exhaust but alas, I can always switch the exhaust out later if Yoshi or one of the other manufacturers starts producing something more attractive.
