KTM 640 - Bosson slip on vs Akro vs ?
« on: May 19, 2015, 07:13:45 pm »
Hi Guys, currently have a Bosson slip on on my Adventure and for some unexplained reason I'm not too happy with it.
What is your thoughts on it compared to Akro or FMF or similar?

If you're buying new look at Wings pipes they look awesome and are well priced vs Akrapovic

Something to think about...
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept your it. All else is madness.

 :thumleft: thanks sent them a query to whether they do the 640 Adventure as it's not listed on their web site.

FYI - Wings don't make a muffler for the 640 Adventure.  :dousing:

Very easy to make it fit.

Buy a single 990 one without the pipes (so just the canister)

the all bolt on the intake side of the silencer with 3 bolts

It will be well worth it
Ride it like you stole it!

Thanks

I've got the original slip-ons of my 990 at home - will see how they fit and see if I can make a plan.
