2017 akra headers and 2017 gp can installed on 2015 S1000R
« on: February 11, 2018, 04:42:47 AM »
Ok so today my 2015 S1000R had the 2017 akra headers and 2017 GP can installed. The 2017 system fit flawlessly. The only issue I had originally was thinking I had to buy a right 2017 passenger foot bracket because the 2017 gp can mounts to a hole on the lower part of the 2017 passenger foot bracket. And it costs $279. But then after doing some research I found out Akra, R&G and evotech made an exhaust mount for the 2017 exhaust can or any exhaust but they had them listed for 2017 models. So on a hunch I looked on max bmws microfische and saw that the subframe on the 2014-18 models was the same part #. Therefore all 3 companies exhaust mount brackets would fit. First I looked up R&Gs but they were on backorder everywhere. The R&G model came as a bracket alone for $86 or with a block off plate as a kit for $101.95.  The evotech also came as a mounting bracket or a kit for $100. And the Akra was the most expensive since its carbon fiber for $150 but didnt come with a block off plate for the left side.

The only other parts you would need to buy seperate are 2 OEM BMW parts in order to mount the can to the exhaust mount bracket. Its the rubber vibration gromet that is inside the hole in the 2017 passenger foot bracket where the stock can mounts to. And the spacer sleeve. Total $12.40. The part numbers are as follows
Rubber vibration insulation 18217717852
Spacer sleeve 18217672806

Once i have everything buttoned up I will post pics. I rode the bike without the rapid bike plugged in to see how it rode and am waiting on the my tuning to arrive. Didnt want to have the rapid bike plugged into the harness because if the bike runs with the rapid bike without the my tuning , once the my tuning is installed i would need to plug the rapid bike into my computer and have yaman remote access the rapid bike and my tuning through the rapid bike program on my computer to mate the my tuning to the rapid bike. This way when the my tuning arrives i install it. Plug the rapid bike in and start the bike.

Just waiting on the 2017 BMW rubber vibration gromet and sleeve to arrive so I can bolt the 2017 Akra gp can to the Evotech exhaust mounting bracket.  Right now I have a ziptie holding it in place.
