Akrapovic silencer guard
« on: September 10, 2015, 12:34:24 AM »
I'm concerned that with the Akrapovic silencer being so exposed, I'm going to dent/scratch it pretty easily. Does anyone know if you can get a guard of some type e.g. slip on carbon fibre cover?

I was thinking of adding a supermoto type muffler slider to my 2 stroke.

I've snapped the rear side plate after a low side drop because it protrudes over the top of the muffler and dug into the ground.

It may not be relevant to the 4 stroke because the muffler is bigger and the side plate may not protrude over it at all.

Something like this...

Thanks. Do you know what they're making to protect it?

I found  a link to this site in another thread http://boutique.virus-racing.fr/ktm/1619-protege-silencieux-carbone-pour-akrapovic.html. It looks like it would do the job.

We produce a very popular Akrapovic Silencer Guard at P3 Carbon for the Husqvarna TE449/511. If we can get enough people on board for a Sherco Akrapovic version, we can put it into development.

I'm sure you'd get enough interest phishbed. Where are you located and do you ship to Australia?

For now, I've zip tied 3 rings of fuel line around the silencer. It won't stop dents but should stop some scratches in the event of sliding out. Similar concept to what you proposed buying Boogie.

Nice find.  So they're €63 plus about €22 for shipping.  All up about $140aud landed.

Additional guards add about €3 to the shipping cost.

Maybe we could do a group buy to offset shipping costs?

€63?  The site shows €75. I asked my French father-in-law to check out the website and he said it looks like they only ship within Europe. However, he said I could have it posted to his brother in France, and he would then send it to me. So if others in Australia are interested, we could possibly work out a deal with the supplier.

I thought so as well, but a bit of looking around and google translate, it turns out they do ship internationally and by shipping internationally they remove VAT of the price bringing it down to €63.  I doubt we'd get a better price on the unit (could ask), but if a few of us got together we at least save on the shipping.

I followed up with Propower also and it doesn't seem they are doing anything like this, but would if there's enough demand.  The price would be higher though, but so might the quality

I'll talk to my father-in-law again and ask him to send Virus Racing an email and ask about shipping and a discount for quantity.

P3 carbon is imported to Australia Devan by F1 Moto, maybe worth a call to them also.

The guys from the french company Vírus Racing have a facebook page where they post some photos.
It seems that the products have good quality.
I'm also thinking in buying one for me.
