Austin Racing slip on GP1
« on: November 08, 2018, 09:30:59 AM »
Looking for a slip on for my 18 model. Trying to decide between the Austin Racing GP1 or the Akrapovic. Seen plenty with the akra but few with the austin racing slip on. Just after people thoughts who may have the Austin any issues with fittment I see it doesn't use the passenger foot peg and does the fuelling remain ok. Pleased with the noise?
Thanks for any replies.

Cant speak about Austin racing slip on. This link is regarding SC Project S1 slip on. You may find it interesting.

Had a couple of Austin racing cans on previous bikes. Fit is always good.  If your going nec bike show in next couple of weeks get it from them at show price & save postage also.  Ive got a bargain from them twice by doing it that way.

Was planning on going to the NEC but the wife informed me last night it clashes with our wedding anniversary and she has booked a weekend away  :034:
What do call a bargain? Might if possible try and go midweek.

I purchased a de cat pipe and can from them for my s1000rr 14 reg for 400 cash.  I also got 20 percent off an end can for my old s1000r.  Nice people.   Worth the trip.

Go with the Austin Racing GP1R cat delete or slip on.  I have the GP1R cat delete on my 2016 S1000RR and was able to mount the 2017-18 Akra headers with 2017-2018 GP can on my 2015 S1000R.  The Akra sounds good for the first 15-20 mins.  Then its so loud and obnoxious.  I have the Cardo Scala bold and swapped the 40mm speakers to the 45mm jbl speakers and I still hear that exhaust when the volume is high.  Whereas the Austin Racing is loud but its a low grumbling loud and it doesnt over power you with sound.  Even at a high speed and high rpms the cops dont pay attention to me.  On the other hand the cops love to attempt to get me when Im on the S1000R that has the Akra.

Did go with the Austin Racing slip on and have been pleased so far. Lovely burble on the over run. Funny 3 times this year I have returned to my bike to find someone stood there waiting to hear it start up.📣

They do look superb.

Anyone have a video of the bike running with an AR can fitted and the cat in situ, please?

Podders,

They are really good, I keep meaning to do a sound test with mine, all I can say they really change the noise of the bike, I still have the cat in place and I have no desire to remove it as the noise from the AR is pretty mental, sounds like a proper superbike, the pops and crackles off the throttle is quite something, the pops and crackles reminds me a little like a powerful AMG merc blackseries  coming off the throttle

Build quality is superb and you can see why they are what they in cost. If you contact them directly they will do deals  :169:
