Test mule, 959 wanted, STL area.
 
Who has a 959 that wants to be a test mule? I need someone (preferably local to St Louis MO) willing to do a couple of dyno runs to check performance on an exhaust and Rapidbike tuner. I don't currently have a Duc (Buell/EBR guy here, 6 of them currently) and am branching out. I've already built one for a 1299, from what I understand, the mounting is either very similar or identical on the exhaust.

I'll do a full weight test with the stock 1299 headers, etc. vs the akrapovic DP exhaust this week since I have to pull it anyway. Currently, the stock muffler is 14 lbs, the one above is 9.5 lbs. The akra mufflers are 9 lbs, so there's not a huge difference in weight so far. The headers are lighter though, just need to weigh them.

Full 1299 stock exhaust, 24 lbs. Stock 1299 headers with mine, 19.5 lbs. Full Akra DP system 14.75 lbs.

Sound, stock is obviously quieter, Akra is next, then mine is the louder of the 3.

I don't have an 899 exhaust here to model off of, the flanges are different I believe.

You sure that 1299 exhaust exit isn't cooking the rear tyre?
Some weird looking tyre marks and that exit angle looks like it's onto the tyre?
