GPR 2-1 for the 990 Adv

I'm buying a 990 Adv R on tuesday and I was planning on putting on the Akrapovic slip-ons but just came across the GPR 2-1 and I love the look of it. Real racey. Does anybody have experience with this exhaust? How is the performance and sound? Does it take away the ability to put a pannier system on? Thanks guys.

Also, unrelated to the title, but are there any suspension shops that specialize in the 990? I want to send the forks and shock off and get it set up and also get the forks titanium nitride coated.

I'm giving myself a $5k budget on accessories for this bike. Here's a pic of the exhaust for those that don't know about it.

You'll be happy with it, @ a total weight of 4.8 k'gs it's light and it performs more than enough for the 990.

Titanium , very good buiild quality can be run on either map, standard or Akra.
It has one spark arrestor and a quality db killer.


The only thing is : Once the pipe is fully mounted and the clamp is on around the baffel and snug , go ahead and pop rivet it to the can, so it stays in place.
After a heart pounding ride thru the scrub the other day she slipped down the conical shaped baffel.

The bash plate is from a guy on here, KTMATT.
In one word it's TUFF , it also provides protection to the tanks in a fall as they are wide due to the storage on either side and it gives great protection to the bottom of the pipe!

I fitted the GPR 2-1 SYSTEM a couple of months ago.They will work fine with the KTM luggage racksjust had to space the mount on the footrest bracket with some washers.The weight loss is very noticeable.Bike feels like a big single....well an enormous single.I disconnected the O2 sensors and made up plugs with resistors,still shows a fault code for the lambdas but the fuelling has vastly improved.I used to get 120 to the light,now 140.Remove the secondary butterflies and get the acro map installed and it should run the way we all expected it to from the off.The only mod i had to make was modify the origional RHS sump panel,scissors/dremmel.....sorted.

I have a couple of question about the GPR.

Does the center stand still work after the exhaust is fitted?

Is there a pipe that is shaped like the Acro/Remus rather than the conical (?) shaped pipe in the pic above.

Thanks

On the fence about upgrading to one of his bashplates. Got a front on shot so I can see how wide it is. Wider than the tanks ? I hate the crash bars but they serve a purpose. Wondering if the bashplate would take the scrapping in a slide orientated fall? Maybe in conjunction with some plastic or carbon fuel tank protectors. Thoughts?
The front end is wide and bulky enough without adding the crashbars IMHO.

The bash plate is made out of 5mm 5083 Alloy so its tuff stuff and the base sides and front are all one piece bent up. Its about the same width as the tanks so offeres some good protection and should take a big hit.



And just head hear for some more pics or click on my sig.

They supply the fittings so it can be fitted , it's a couple of spacers basically but i chose to leave mine off.

It saves weight and yes i do miss it at times but not that much!

As for the can, i think they do make one but i've only seen one ...somewhere on the web.

Cheers

Yep i can vouch for the protection, they do provide protection to the tanks in a fall, the bash plate must make you go harder cause the first outing saw me sliding down a slippery hill sidewez the bashplate took the brunt!

Thanks mate

For me, not having a center stand wouldn't be a issue on day/weekend rides but for week or longer solo rides I don't think I'd want to go without it.

I'm sure I saw a regular shaped exhaust can somewhere too...............?

I can vouch for the GPR, 2-1 and Adventure Spec G-IT sump. Nice workmanship on both products. The sump guard also has a storage compartment in the front for a tool roll. I have my centerstand and there are no clearance issues.

Mine is regular shaped but it's an Akro off a Yamaha R1. I think Africa Queens ($$$) sells one as well but I've heard there are some serious fitting issues. You could always look at just buying the GPR pipes then add an aftermarket can on it.

Some slick looking 950's you lads have there :) I like that "Meoni" paint job 1stiski !

Borrowing the thread,

Does anyone know if it is possible to put the Akra muffler straight on the GPR pipe?

I really like the dakar look and already have the akras.
