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.
damn i thought i wrote that about the warranty. and the akra and upmaps. well done. also i had a dealer tell me i have to use a specific oil in my jetski or i will void the warranty. i said oh yea if you specify i have to use it guess what you have to supply it thats the law. how fast his story changed.
Thanks from Phl and SixShock

I Ride: V4 S Corse (ordered)
As I am travelling a lot through Germany, does anyone know if there are aftermarket exhausts that are actually road-legal?
As they really check it in Germany, I cannot risc my bike getting confiscated.

So, an exhaust with an E-brand on it

not sure if you 're Belgian. you should be able to get away with a fine.

a german would get a point for being too loud on top of the fine and then another fine for not having catalytic converters.

google what some other european riders have to say. the stuff i found in german, applies predominantly to germans.

#$&% legal. The only exhaust that belongs on that bike is what is currently on the WSBK prototypes. Everything else looks goofy. The Akra on the Aruba bikes looks great, sounds great, and is non intrusive. I don't care what it cost. Get it

Just wanted to warn other Speciale' buyers that the upgraded exhaust doesn't come installed and isn't cheap or easy to do so.
It's fiddly but not beyond the realms of any owner as long as they have the right tools, time and patience. I am currently in the middle of a build project on my V4 and have stripped the bike down to the engine for custom work to the frame and swingarm. ATM I am trial fitting the prototype Samco cooling hose kit to the bike, before I put the airbox and throttle bodies back on, so don't be too apprehensive about tackling a few nuts, bolts and pipework.
