I received a an email this morning from motostarz stating that the exhaust I paid for 6 weeks ago will not be available until mid March. Just though you guys should know, its gonna be awhile.

That's still not as bad as the service manual that I ordered from Yamaha on October 15th and still isn't here. Oh, they charged my credit card too at the time of the order.

Yea they charged my card for this too... what I don't want to have happen is I wait until mid March and it gets pushed back again.

Glad it wasn't on my wish list. Kind of sad for the few of you who did place orders.

This Akro is starting to sound like a 'pipe' dream...

Good thing there are plenty of other options out there when your patience runs out.

yea..... I'm thinking about canceling it for now. I can pretty much address everything else on the bike for that kind of money. I'll see what other exhausts pop up later and what results people are getting with them.

For just a little bit more money you can get the lighter Graves. If you look hard enough online, you can find some specials on it for about $1100. Best of all, you can get it right away.

Fuel management should be considered with any exhaust upgrade.

that i know, but there aren't really that many options yet. ideally id like to have the stock ecu flashed/dyno tuned when i get an exhaust for it, but at least with the akra you could get by (allegedly) with stock fueling.

Speaking of that.... I called Crestec at the end of last week. The lady that answered the phone said that Yamaha claimed to be "getting close" on the service manual. She hoped that it wouldn't be any more than another 4 weeks. *fingers crossed!*

everyone that ordered an akrapovic just got bumped up. i cancelled my order this morning. i placed the order on 11/18/13. almost 10 weeks was all i could take. it was really only worth it to me if it were already on the bike. oh well. the graves is sounding pretty sweet right about now.

Graves does sound sweet, but it feels sweet too :)

My brother was in NYC for the Superbowl festivities and saw one in person on display. He said it looked much better in person and was no where as bulky as it looked in photos. He has a Ducati Panigale with a full Akro system so I can take his word on how it looked. I tried calling Akrapovic USA and they did say March to me also. I think I am going to get on the list. She said the majors will have the preorders filled first. I need a new helmet and gloves so I am calling either Revzilla or Sportbike Track Gear in the morning and put a deposit in.
