How much power should I expect to the wheel when I get my bike back with the Akrapovic exhaust on it?

My bike is getting the exhaust on right now and they only charge me 8 hours. This is not even the dealership were I bought my bike so Iím not getting any special discount.

Honestly, I didn't ask them if I could install it myself because I don't have the skills to work on a bike... I can take it apart but I won't be able to put it back together, however, I wanted to have my favorite performance shop do the job and they told me it will void my warranty but maybe it's just my dealer? They even try to give me crap because I didn't buy the exhaust from them so go figure....

I didn't have them do the job anyway because they wanted me to wait 12 days to do the first service which I thought it was ridiculous so I just went with a different authorize Ducati dealership near my house.

I had a dealer once tell me they wouldn't put on an akra because It would make the bike unable to run. They also were unable to install a new clutch slave cylinder....long story short....YouTube and service manuals ftw. Plus I have fun and learn a lot doing it myself

Wow thatís crazy! I just donít feel comfortable going to my local shop that has never worked on a v4 yet.. none have arrived. And I feel it would take them a lot longer to install since it would be their first one :/. I either take it to official dealer which is 2hour ferry ride or do it myself. As long as I have the torque specs and service manual Iíll be set! If anyone comes across one let me know!

An exhaust will not void any warranty anywhere. They would have to prove whatever the problem that surfaces was the result of an aftermarket exhaust which the stealerships would have a hard time proving. That's nothing more than a scare tactic for someone to spend another $1000 on labor. There are so many illegal things dealers do, yet they try n threaten people with voided warranties lol what a joke. All the dealerships in california that have removed charcoal canisters would be in deep trouble if it came down to it. Same thing with installing a race only exhaust. Technically those are all not road legal things but dealerships will do it to get the labor cost, then turn around n threaten with warranty voided bs?

Best thing to do is take your sweet ass time, work on it a couple hours at a time n install it yourself. Have the upmap installed or not. May not be optimized for max power or whatever but the bike will run just fine without the upmap. Akras are specifically designed to run problem free on stock maps....at least they were on the 1x99's. I don't see the v4 being any different. Hell, I'm running the full termi upmap on mine with the full akras but was on the stock map for like a year before i purchased the termi upmap. Installed the exhaust myself in about 10 total hours without having removed anything besides the side fairings n nothing else. If I had a v4 with a full exhaust, I'd definitely try to install myself before i ever considered paying over $1000 in labor. Scratch that...$5k for the exhaust lol I had a hard enough time coughin up $3300 for mine a few years ago.

....when i had experiences like that, the one thing i learned was "i had no need to do it, and i won't do it again"
