Wings

I had them on my 04 and my second 950 has Akras...frankly I can't tell any difference in quality. My Wings were a 28mm opening vs the Akras at 32mm. Both sounded great and build quality was excellent. Highly recommended. I ordered right from Czech republic and they arrived in less than 2 weeks and as advertised. Great stuff.

Wow. How did you avoid going through the Canadian dealer? How much did they cost? How much was shipping?

Thanks!

Wings comes from Slovenia...

They have a new homepage by the way! http://www.wings.si/ver3/index.html

New CF end caps

I read this entire post and just wanted to say that the latest versions of the CF end caps have obviously been updated. They have some new funky angles, and the port to access the bolt for the DB killers is at the bottom of the end cap. When I got my Wings I was wondering why so many folks were mentioning the 'falling bolt' problem, but after looking at some of the pics a little closer, I realize the ports used to be on the sides. Makes much better sense to have them at the bottom so if you drop the bolt it will be sitting somewhere right close to the access port now, and easily retrievable.

There is no US distributer. Just send them an e-mail and they'll get you the current price sheet and shipping. Send your payment via Paypal and couple weeks later you'll have a nice brown box on your porch. I forget what I actually paid, but it was a bit more than FMFs and a lot less than Akros.
