i see it like this. the termi kit for the 848 is (i'm pretty sure) stainless. the akra is ti and 1k cheaper. so it has to be lighter with CF cans.. so hands down i think the akra win IMO.. but i love the look of the termi cans.....Do the akrapovic. The termi system is not going to give you any more power. Its up to you what look you want.
I don't think there is a definitive answer for this. Some say it's not necessary, others say it is. If you do get a power commander, DP ECU, or other such product with a proper tune, you WILL get more power over just the slip on alone.OK Now I have to ask - on a couple of my jap bikes if we did a slip on we did not have to do anything to the Map or computer so to speak... SO on Ducs if you would just do a slip on would you Have to do the ECU? or since they already run so lean and the slip on would make it more lean...is it a must?
i see that now. the termi kit is headers, cans, ecu, filter. akra is the header and cans. now it makes sense the price difference.When comparing prices, make sure you are comparing apples with apples. A thousand US$ difference in price for the same system from two companies is a big difference and may exclude bits you do not get with the other system that seems to be more expensive.
is slip on's with an ecu and pc worth it? what's the size different between the stock and termi pipes?You really can go either way with the slipons. You don't have to do the ECU, but you will not see a real power increase, just slightly. With the full exhaust, you would but because you would have a real tune. So you can save the 1K and not worry about the ECU, or you can.
The slip-ons will get you like 5 hp, the full like 8 or 10 I think. You will be happy with the slip-ons and you dont have to do the ECU with it. You can do it later, you dont have to spend the money at the same time. With the full set up, you have to do a tune, no ifs and or buts.is slip on's with an ecu and pc worth it? what's the size different between the stock and termi pipes?
and what kind of power increases are we talking about with different set ups?
i'm just learning about ducs right now. i'm selling my gsxr to get a new bike. i want a duc. i'm just worried it's not any faster then my 600. i know it will out handle it.
