Title: FIRST KTM 640 AIR AGE SLIP ON - Magnificent!
Post by: Adventure MX on November 28, 2007, 06:09:50 pm
It is my pleasure to bring you the first photo's of the Air Age Slip On exhausts for the KTM 640.
I have had the pleasure of spending some time in the Air Age Workshops and have seen 1st hand how these locally manufactured exhausts are produced.

Some of you will know Plathond from the Gauteng Wilddog Bash (Friend of Plothond).  He is the first person to receive his slip on from the production line.  These exhausts are made from high grade stainless steel (304) which is non magentic. This means that they are resistant to corrosion and rust.  You will notice that the exhausts have a new tri-oval design which compliments the overall look on just about any bike or quad.

These exhausts have a life time warranty (personally experienced) and for the price you can pick them up you would seriously miss out not considering a purchase.
The factory tests each bike in standard form on a Dyno and once the new exhaust is developed it goes back to the Dyno to measure results and make improvements if necessary. 

These exhausts are so well made that it is literally a bolt off and bolt on procedure.  Let me tell you from what I have seen these exhaust compare or are even better then some of your more popular imports.

There are exhausts available for the following bikes:
KTM 640
KTM 950 / 990
GS 1200
KLR 650

I'm in the market of some middle of 08. Will keep a look out for them and see how the people like them. They look the business but what do they sound like ? Will they be a dealer here in the Cape ( not KTM ).

As quoted by Plathond himself: ;D

" Die Karre hoor my nou aankom en hulle gee somer pad" >:D

When Plathond left my shop I got to hear them properly.  They have an absolutely awesome sound, and by simply bolting these babies on you get a couple of horses extra to play with.

I think it is more a case of BM owners beinging brave enough to take the 1st step.
Something to make you think.........Can anyone tell me the difference between a akropovic and an Air Age slip on, besides the price?

Its not that....
Fitting a non BM approved zorst may lead that your 2 year guarantee become nul and void......

Sure, but AMX is right
Bet you if you had to strip the two, there would probably be zippo difference between them

I ca'rent wait  :) :) :)  .... to see what I will potentially be fitting to my 990

PICS ....... PLEEEEEEEEEZE  :)

No, No and NO! >:D

Ama,

Point taken, and obviously I will check it out

Seeing the different types on KTM's at Pro-Action leads me to believe that this is not a big issue with them.
Air Age has been around for at least 20 years, and reading from AMX's write-up, they seem to have a professional setup

I think many people believe that quality has to be expensive.  And if it is expensive then it should work better then another product.  This is absolute bull.  All exhausts are basically built the same way.  It is just the components that may vary and the size of the can that could differ.  The size of the can will just determine the noise factor, the bigger the can the less noise.  
A good & easy way to check whether your slip on is on par with good specs is to take a magnet and see whether it sticks to internal and outer components.  If it does you will get degradation over time.

The reason why I like what I see is the fact you get value for money.  It is not necessary to spend 8K on a set of cans.  Slip on's all do the same job!

Ad MX

I agree with you 101%.

I for one would like to put on a raaspyp on my GSA but refuse to pay R9000 for Akro's. But I cant afford to lose my guarantee if I tell BM to stuff the Akro's somewhere the sun dont shine. The moment my bike is out of guaratee I wll put on a Air Age or similar. ;)

I wonder if i ask Jerry nicely if he will make a prototype for my BMW Dakkie. I dont care about the so called warranty that will fall away from BM as i bought my scoot cash but badly need some extra PERFORMANCE.

Love the AirAge on the KLR.

We were lucky, when we bought our KLR's from DNA (In Roodepoort) they included a free topbox and a free Airage pipe.

Great Deal
