What would require replacing on the Arata (canister) in the event of a spill would be no diff than any other system.....not gonna replace the head pipes or 's' bend most likely so basically what you got from Ivan or their order desk was a sales pitch for what Ivan sells/distributes/tests....Akra, which BTW is equally as good as the Arata or vice versa.

I don't think he meant the Arata would need different parts than the Akra. Just that the parts for the Akra are easier to get because Arata doesn't have as much inventory as Akrapovic does. If a different system was a big improvement over the Akra, Ivan would most likely endorse it whether he sells it or not. When I've talked with him, he didn't seem like the typical "my stuff rules, the other stuff sucks" guy you talk to alot when buying parts.

:+1: your right,,, it would take alot longer to get the arata pieces if something was to happen... the akra system is alot more avalible, spelling,,. and beleve me,, i wanted the arata,,, they were great to deal with.. and pluse,,, i think they had more time to map an remap the akra than the arata.. :eek:ccasion1

All that for 1340? Think I'd get the same deal on that set up for an 07? On those block off plates, that's a must have for going to the open race system?
