    If you are talkin about high mounts made from Akrapovic, no luck they don't have any plans to make them. Yes you are right the AMA bike does use Akro's. You would need to get some custom bending if you wanted high mount with Akro.

    Maybe you should try the http://www.moriwaki.co.jp/ Dealer in Nevada.

    this is the closest i've seen



    but from what I understand, the headers are made by HRC, and the cans are made by akrapovic. Here's the HRC parts, which we regular joes can not buy

    I have a set of high mount Acro's. I am unsure how to load a picture of my bike on the forum though.

    Yes please! Oh! That wasn't a question?
    To load a pic, click on "post reply" at the end of any other reply. That will bring up a window with a few more option than the "Post Quick Reply" one. You will see an empty bar with a "browse" button to the right of it. Click that "browse" button and then select a pic from your computer. When you've selected, that empty bar should be full with a "link" into your Documents or Pictures. If you want to add a few words, just type in the box on top, and then click submit. It's that simple.You might have to resize your pic. There is a limit on how big they can be. If you don't know how to do that or don't have the program, email it to one of us and will resize it and post it for you.

    Yes I’m 99% sure.... this must be a custom system, only one pipe. The Jardine one pipe system sucks ass, not sure about the Arrow system, but mostly they are for show and offer no improvement other than weight. If you do any mods to the bike the one pipe system will choke the the engine, from what I have read about them.

    Is this Alps pic of his bike, did he make the pipe bends with a Stainless steal or Titanium.

    hehe, I was wondering if he just switched the cans on a one pipe system. I thought it was the ARROW system he did it with though. but he used the Jardine yiks...

    This is not really on topic but I though it was good for a chuckle:

    I asked the guys at www.akrapovic.com about this and what they responded is that they were currently looking into the development of a high mount system BUT it's for the SP-2 not the SP-1. This is obviously because of the swingarm difference between the two models.

    This was from a thread i read all about this topic.

    It's this part that made me laugh

    Ratdog. My gixxer buddy got all mad yesterday when a local Suzuki/Honda dealership is sitting on GSXR1K's and the lone RC51 that they have on the floor is in a bidding war (ala Harley Davidson). The dealer also said he can't give away suzuki's but he could sell the RC51 all afternoon.
    They are totally dis'ing gixxers...lol. Gixxers aren't bad...They're the only other bike I'd ever buy.
