Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust Triumph Daytona 675 / 675 R Akrapovic's sporty and lightweight SLIP-ON system offer a great balance between price and performance and represent the first step in the exhaust system tuning process. The change will be also visual as our muffler perfectly fit the exterior line of the sporty Daytona and add a clean racing image. The muffler outer sleeve is made of titanium and the end cap of carbon fiber, which gives a special hi-tech touch to our EC Type approval SLIP-ON exhaust system. Stainless Steel Header Pipes available. Power Torque the exhaust system modification with the SLIP-ON OPEN system results in a major boost in performance, delivering a massive 115.6 HP at 12670 rpm on back wheel. But the increased power isnt available just at the top of the range the system shows its quality already from 6000 rpm up through entire rpm range. Maximum increased power between the Akrapovic and the stock system is 3.6 HP at 7070 rpm. Besides this, the torque is substantially higher in a lower rpm area at 6000 rpm and from middle to high rpm area. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states. NOTE CARB compliant for use in California.

I was fortunate enough to have this exhaust slip on come with the Daytona I bought. It is gorgeous as heck, and the sound has a very distinctive touch to it, I cannot speak too much about the performance seeing that I've never rode the Daytona with the stock exhaust. I've received many compliments from my bike buddies, even the ones who have the arrow exhaust setup. Definitely a solid constructed piece of art, and it will give you that special feeling knowing that not many bikes on a the street will ever sound like yours. Highly recommend!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am 5'7 with somewhat an athletic legs, I noticed that they come in large, but fits me like a glove! covers the knee and the upper shin very well! Keeps my lower legs warm too when I ride on the freeway. Very comfortable to ride in, and they aren't too bad walking around with. I ride with them on the outside of the jeans. Definitely recommend them though! Sadly, they do not offer too much of a protection on the sides of your knee.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ordered a large thinking it would fit my size 40 alpine jacket, but it almost fits... It is sleek and not too thick for it to stick out of your back. It is comfortable and feels durable. If you're a size 40 alpine jacket or smaller, definitely get medium. Overall, I definitely recommend!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fits into my alpine jacket like a glove! These are huge but basic upgrade to the foam pads! They are sturdy but light, and have little mesh holes in them for the air flow! Wish it was cheaper though.. a little bit pricey
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for riding shoes that would offer me just as much protection as the racing boots but don't sort of stand out when you're walking around, these did the trick! Shoes are very stylish and go along with almost all my clothes I wear. Leather was thick and sturdy, shoes are comfortable when you break them in, my ankles do not feel naked, the heel of my foot is padded, and there is some steel toe padding in the front of my foot (not over the top of the toes though!) Definitely get these shoes if you're not looking forward to carrying an extra pair of walking shoes around!
by the way, I normally wear size 11 shoes, but the us size 10 fit me pretty well!
Yes, I recommend this product.
