Exhaust in stock?

hello guys,

I just wanted to see if anyone has the Arrow slip on's in stock here in the states? I originally was looking at the Akropovic at RZilla but they now seem to be out of stock everywhere and the Arrow seems to be an "order only" item. So other then the Yosh slip on there doesn't seem to be many "popular names" exhausts to choose from "In Stock" anywhere in the States? Please let me know if you guys have a good parts source in the US that has any of these exhausts in stock?


thanks!

I ordered my headers from Black Widow in the UK. Cheaper than Arrow, and it got here within a few days of me placing the order.

I just bought my Akra Slip on from Riders Discount. Ask for Mikki

Her email is [email protected]

I have found through the years Riders Discount has the best prices on aftermarket accessories of anyone out there. Would appreciate hearing back if I was right, and they have the Akra.

Thanks Pat. I have never had an Arrow before but all the places seem to indicate 3-4 weeks to get one. Even RZilla has it on their site but it says 4-5 weeks to get order shipped. I am like well what's the point of having it on the site then? lol

I appreciate it. I checked their site and they appear to be out of them as well but I sent her an email as well to be sure. IDK if Akro is changing the pipe or just wasn't selling enough of them? Surprising to discontinue a product for a bike still in production?

Maybe it was a low-volume production at Akra, because of lesser projected demand - I guess more people keep stock exhaust on this model than on others for it sounds great.

It actually does have a nice "growl" to it. I haven't gotten it up into the high rpm's yet (still in "break in mode") but I was surprised how nice it sounded stock. But I do want a slip on for sure!
