Even with silencers, i don't think it's much of a difference. It's a loud exhaust and being that Laguna is so strict on sound, you'd probably have to roll off the throttle around turn 5 (?) Or wherever they black flag u.

Far as the low end surging, i mean mine still does it but it's not severe. Maybe i just don't pay attention to it. As i said, it is no worse than oem even though sayin it runs better is merely an opinion.

I'm a little pissed about this.

I saw a thread on the 899 forums about the same thing. Some one either referenced or linked a manufacturer, who wrote on their site that they weren't required on the newer Ducati models. The 1199 wasn't referenced directly, but the Monster 1200 was.

I'm thinking I've been shammed.
Its a pity the info about error codes is not well known. I know that since 2012 I personally have posted that there is no code on probably 3 occasions.

It comes up everytime people ask about removing the flapper valve cable.

I'm really considering the Akra more now since it has silencers making it quiet for Laguna.
The akra is louder than OEM by about 3 to 5 db at 5000rpm and also lounder at idle by about 1 to 2 db.

Oh ok, I'll have to think about the Akra then. IMO, it not be worth the $3500 for a slight increase in sound and a slight weight reduction.

Keigwins has 3 criterias:

1)Stock exhaust - You can get flagged 3 times
2)Aftermarket w/silencers - You can get flagged twice
3)Aftermarket w/out silencers - Flagged once and done

You can do a sound check throughout the day and they give you 3 laps for testing.

1st lap-I short shifted and rolled off the throttle
2nd lap-I short shifted to 4th and WOT
3rd lap-I downshifted to 3rd and WOT

I pitted and they said I measured 91db which is actually within Laguna's sound limit but 1db above Keigwin's 90db limit.

It's not a slight weight reduction.

I measured with the Db killers in

Anyone knows if the Akra slip-on for the 1199 is also compatible to the 1299?
Ducati now lists the akra slip on on their homepage explicitly for the 1299.

To me, the only difference seems the included Up-Map stick and the little Ducati logo on the cans.

However, thats no justification to charge 400 Euros more than the slip-on for the 1199, which you are able to buy freely at any akrapovic listed dealer.

The 1299 Ducati Akrapovic slip on can only be ordered via the ducati dealer.

Now, i wouldnt care for the up-map stick or the nifty ducati logo if i can save 400,-, BUT...the question is if the 1199 akra slip-on fits on the 1299 at all or if there are any differences for it not to fit.

Any clues?
