hey whats up all. I 90 o clocked my bike last year and needless to say i messed up the carbon fiber tip of my akrapovic slip on exhaust for my 05 bike. My question is do you guys think i can find somebody to fix it? DO you guys know anybody that can fix it? I know i can get a new canister for the slip on but common ill rather get another exhaust at that price. Thank you all for any advice

Try contacting Akra or somebody that sells them. You should be able to buy replacement parts for your pipe.

is your exhaust still functional? try and sell it on Ebay if it's still good, even if you only get like 150 bucks it'll help you recoup some of the loss on the new pipe.

personally i would use a different muffler cut down...
someone on here had a knock off Beet with a yoshi can and it looked sweet.
or as you said get another system..

but seriously if it is just the tip, hell use some JB weld on the back side and make it as stock and sand and paint high temp black.

They make replacement parts. There should have been an exploded parts diagram with part numbers or reference numbers in the box your system came in.

I think he was going for 12' of clock.
Ahh...that would make more sense. I just pictured a bike doing cart wheels down the road.

Finally got a hold of the camera, here are the pics of the akra exhaust.

I am actually thinking of selling it, if somebody wants dibs on it pm me or leave a message here. I would want 300 for the exhaust but make me an offer.

No either you will never hear back, or you will be served the wrong answer. Call Lockhart Phillips or Parts Unlimited they are the ONLY companies that can buy spare parts from Akra, given that they are even avaliable. If anyone knows they will

man that sucks.. It makes me hate akra.. why would they sell all the other parts but but the stupid cap.

they have no contact on their website.. only email with no one contacting me back.. I should have went with a leo vince.. customer service is awsome,

well hello they are Slovanian and to be honest most of europe when it comes to giving a shit about customer service plain sucks.
that is an easy fix to be honest though you waont have a pretty carbon fiber tip any longer.
