2015 full akrapovic exhaust to 2017 model?

Hello, anyone knows if is possible to swap a full akrapovic exhaust between '15-'17 models?
I found some used exhausts at good price for 2011-15, but no one for 2016-17 model.

Thanks

I'm in the same doubt.
On Arrow specs, the link pipe from headers to silencer have the follow diamenters:
2011-2015 In diam 55mm, Out diam. 65mm
2016 In diam. 54, Out diam. 60mm

With more exhaust flow/opened in the 2011 model I supposed no problems to install on a new model bike.

But I don't know if the oil filter or something else can interfere with the pipes.

Any help will be appreciate ;-)

depends on model of system, for some the new oil cooler hard pipes get in the way on the gen5 when you try to a fit gen4 system onto it.

CanyonCarver, I finally installed an Akrapovic evolution full system on my Gen5.
Do you notice a little drop of power around 4k rpm? For me is unconfortable on curved roads at low speed...
Thanks

No, I did not experience that. However, I never rode it with the Akra system before having a custom dyno-derived map created for it. I highly recommend it for best performance on any bike.
