F800 Akrapovic vs Jesse Install?

Has anyone installed their Jesse Odyessy with the BMW part numbered Akrapovic exhaust? I am currently having a pickle of a time getting the carbon fiber exhaust hanger to line up and looks like it will also need some spacers. Photos and pointers appreciated.

Just another satisfied customer

Being local, I picked up a set of 10" Odesseys last week. I called Alisha asking if there were any scratch and dent cases available and she called me back a couple hours later after checking to say they had a set in the color I preferred. I think she may have found the color I wanted in back and scratched them herself Actually I cannot find any fault in them. I picked them up the following day and Al Jesse himself showed me how to install them. Everyone I met there was extremely friendly and they let me install them in their parking lot. If feels good to support a local vendor and especially one who has been doing this a long time and makes a solid product. Thank you Al and Alisha

Did you remove the springs attaching the muffler to the header pipe? If you didn't the muffler hanger could be way off. The springs pull the muffler forward and the hanger will not line up. GH

I was able to get 3 out of 4 points aligned, but I believe that it will need fab work to get the bottom horizontal bar to align. The Akrapovic is a longer and overhangs the lower bar. I've been running the Akrapovic on the bike for two+ years with both the BMW Vario and the BMW adventure cases, I don't think I am really have a "muffler" problem rather a tolerance stacking issue with the Jesse rack.

Akrapovic installed with left side Jesse rack.




I believe there are three options:

1) Make some sort of "offset" bracket to drop the bar
2) Add a bend to the lower horizontal bar
3) Cut and re-weld the lower horizontal points to allow 1/4-1/2" clearance.



I am leaning towards option 3.

Also, not sure why there is a clearance issue on the gas tank lid?

I think you're supposed to take a hack saw and cut away part of your gas cap lid

Seriously, though, given you're having alignment problems top and bottom, I think this may be a sign that something is seriously amiss. You may want to contact Jesse with your pictures and have the mounting rack replaced and confirm the rack is compatible with your Akro system. It's always tough, if not practically unfeasible, for equipment manufacturers to design products that work with other third party farkles. I have a full titanium Akro exhaust on my R1200GS and later tried to fit the AltRider crash bars. The Akro exhaust placed the oxygen sensor in a position that the flange of one of the crash bar mount points was prevented from connecting to the boss on the bike. So I had to grind away a portion of the flange and lost about 25% of the weld.

Is this a standing offer? How about for parts? Wondering if I use this magic phrase I call in next week to order some parts to fix one of the mounts on my R1100GS set ?

Looking at the muffler it looks like you could rotate it and get a little more room to raise the crossbar up. To me it would seem easier to build a new crossbar than move the tabs on the side brackets. It would be as simple as bending a piece o 1/4x1" stock and drilling a few holes. I don't know what to tell you about the gas cap issue. Mine clears the case by 1/4 inch. GH

It says in the installation instructions that you are to put everything together loosely then tighten it all up which will solve these fitment issues...GH I PM'd you a few hours ago

Will Jesse Luggage be at the upcoming IMS in Long Beach?

If so, will you have the ability for cash and carry sales?

Negative on both. We don't have any shows or rallys planned untill springtime.
This may change, but for the moment, that's the schedule.
