2006 ZX10R Akrapovic vs OEM Akrapovic

Whats the difference between these two pipes? Besides the sticker, which differs slightly.... ?

Do those Akrapovic pipes that can be ordered through Kawasaki dealer, are different than the ones you can buy aftermarket... ?




I do like the logo "Specially made for Kawasaki" though....

point is anyone can get ones with or without silencers here or in Euro but the product is the same. All Akra products are available pretty much anywhere in the world.

Agreed. just wanted to let YZF know that if he were to order akra pipes from kawasaki expecting to get the ones he sees on this board, he would be disappointed.

Well....i actually ordered them (OEM) before this post :) And what i recieved was two pipes with special sticker and silencers that can be removed (i did it ofcource) :)

And all that for the price of 599eur (normal aftermarket price is ~900eur in EU).
