If they are all saying no about installing it in Cali then just do a road trip to any other state and have it installed there.

I can confirm that the current Akra is indeed banned in California. It is "alleged" that Akra basically told the California emissions team to go "and walk in jerky motions" with regards to their compliance, so in turn California totally banned the exhaust. The financial penalty is insane.

Most dealers will not touch the Akra (for the 1199).

Now with that said, I have heard the "claim" that racing shops will fit the Akra if the bike is transported to and from the shop on a truck with no visible license plate.
