Buying a set of Akras
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:02:48 PM »
Hey Guys,

Just wondering what is the best/cheapest places you've seen to buy a set of akra slip ons?
Cheapest i can find is on Kawasaki Original Parts website @ £1035.
Has anyone any experience in buying from their website? Are they legit?
Sportsbikeshop is a bit dearer @ £1164.
Any input Appreciated  :002: :002:

Of course the OE kawasaki website is a legit web page  :oh_no: ...

Your best bet is to wait for someone to sell a set second hand at a reasonable price.

www.kawasaki.co.uk/ and www.kawasakioriginalparts.com are two different websites.
Just said I'd ask the question really. Figured it wouldn't hurt.  :002:

Yeah ideally it would be best to wait but really want to get them now  :008: :008:

Set of Leo Vince instead....? It's what I'd spend my money on and 50% less than what you are taking about here  :046:

Look for a 2016 or earlier end cans. You can remove/refit the baffles easily.

The 2017 and newer are Euro 4 compliant and so the baffles are non removable without a lot of de-riveting.

Cool Thanks for the tip! I would have assumed the baffles are removable in them all!

I checked and the Arkas from Kawasaki Original parts the baffles are non removable! That would have been disappointing   :827: haha

Thanks for the tip KD!  :001:
