New problem with The FE forum member found on instagra.

I just found this episode on Instagram don't know if it's a bike from a member here but is definitely scary.

AKRAPOVIC system vibration and loose bolts not being safety wired or loctite.

I just found this post on Instagram so I hope this helps some of the new members with their 1299 FE edition with AKRAPOVIC exhaust system.

I don't pretend to crear a problem my writing is just for safety reasons.

Wow, that sucks. You can hear him hiding his frustration big time.

All of the Akrapovic's that I've had all had the bung safety wired. I would think that the dealership would have caught that during their PDI. I'm going to assume the dealership will replace everything under warranty.

I'm a little perplexed by this. Is the Akra system on the FE not a full system? Other than the O2 lambda sensors on my full system there are no bungs present. Starnge that only one of them is lockwired. At least its a good excuse to remove the charcoal canister.

It’s a full ti system but it’s all euro 4 and technically a stock pipe.

Lol,

It appears he's okay, he didn't crash or have the bike catch on fire. Sometimes people make mistakes when they build things. Take it back to the dealer and kindly ask them to fix it. I'm sure the dealer will be more than willing to help.

Someone is clearly problem oriented and not so much solution oriented.

Call the dealer, have it fixed and leave the f@$&ing lawyers out of it dude.
Oh America, god bless the lawyers.

its not a full system what full system do you know have cats in them. you cant get slips and the full system is going to be very expensive.
