A mate fitted his recently. Again quality kit however just a note that they do not fit with the Akropovic pipe on for some reason or did he do something wrong? Fits perfectly with OEM pipe
Pass this way once!

I have fitted the frames on my LC with the Akra pipe and you need to do some small adjustments with the pipe mounting, it should work then.

As GSing says......Sw Motech design around a standard bike, they cannot cater for every brand of aftermarket item unfortunately, and in Germany Acro is not the holy grail of exhausts that it is in SA...

It is however a option from BMW, strange that they overlooked the possibility that bikes might well be fitted with a bmw factory approved pipe.
Smacks of the trax tobox mounting plate where customers made adjustments to not loose pillion seat space.
Sloppy in my opinion

I think that SWM never thought that the aftermarket guys will be making bigger systems than the manufactures themselves.

I must admit that I have the Akra on my LC, and I'm gonna sell it soon.
