I love Austin Racing!!! not only do these guys make incredible products but the customer service and support is top notch.

I was recently pulled over by the cops out here in Southern California for my loud pipe (AR GP2) and had to revert back to stock, but after reading about Tete's experience and the new quieter insert I contacted Rich at AR. This was last Friday, and today Wednesday, the insert arrived. Unbelievably fast shipping from the UK!! Anyway, hopefully now the local plod and my poor neighbors will be just as impressed wih the lower noise levels. :D

FYI, I just did a dB test with the old and new insert.....

Old: 96dB
New: 92dB

Sounds awesome and Tete was right about the midrange feeling stronger :D I'm using a PCV with the Austin Racing map

What's the Austin map?Is it the Akra map they upload with the PCV?

Unless you have a Pcv you can only use the Akra full system map

I know this.But I assumed you'd have known I meant that if I install a PCV bought from Austin Racing(you guys say on your site that you upload the Akra map on the power commander) is it better to use that austin Akra map uploaded to a PCV or this other map Rich? 8)

We upload our AR custom map to the Pcv.
The Akra map is a map that loads directly to your Ecu only available from your Ktm dealer.

If you have the Akra map installed into your Ecu then adding a Pcv will not be required.
However, If you do add a Pcv and you have the Akra map in your Ecu then we recommend you get the Pcv custom mapped at a dyno centre.

Thanks Rich.How does the AR map compare to the Akra map uploaded to the ECU?
How did ye customise it?(sorry if you've answered this a million times).
Which of the AR exhausts did you use for the map?
The map for the low levels would differ a bit from the hi level Gp1 correct?Due to the length difference in the upper and lower level systems?

Hi

the akra map on the ecu works well with any of our exhausts, adding the pcv to that and custom mapping for your specific exhaust will get the best possible results.

The library map we supply works well with the low or hi level.

Of course the custom map on the dyno will work the best.
But what I'd like to know is in your expert opinion Rich 8).....would the AR custom map uploaded to the PCVs that you sell work better than the Akra map uploaded to the ECU from the dealer?With a straight through system obviously!!

To be honest the akra map is the simplest option to go for and works great. Its difficult to say for 100% which is better as we have only tested with the akra map and the pcv combined.
We think the Akra map possibly uses a little ignition advance, this is a bonus.
For its simplicity to get loaded up i would go with the akra map.

Hi all,

Just after some advice/information; I'm thinking of getting the gp1 hi slung (albeit in a little while) and maybe upgrading the air filter to the rottweiler (anyone in the UK done this - any info on total costs??) has anyone else got the two running together; do i need a PCV also? - Neo I know I spoke to you and you mentioned it is a bolt on system but I forgot to ask about the air filter change...

Not really doing it all for more HP (the bike has more than I could ever think of being able to handle - more just to get rid of the naf OE silencer) I use the bike everyday for the commute to work so want best of both worlds - dont want the economy to drop below 35mpg ideally otherwise i might as well buy a train ticket!

With the exhaust using the supplied insert and db killer if required it will run great with stock mapping or the ktm supplied Akra full system map.
We have not tested any air filter mods as yet.

Two year old thread but.......................friend of mine has just ordered a '17 1290 SDR and been told by the (new to him) dealer that the only after-market exhaust option is the KTM/dealer supplied Akra system and any other would not work because of the catalyst, exhaust 'gate, etc, would void the warranty and, anyway, they would not be willing/able to upload the Akra map - this ties in with recent comments on other threads re dealers being unwilling/unable to upload the Akra map onto non-Akra exhaust fitted bikes but I haven't being paying that much attention.

If so, this is b*ll*cks, smacks of KTM/dealer enforced arm-twisting and would be enough for me to reconsider placing an order - will be talking to my dealer very shortly but would be interested to know if others are being told this also.

So, looks like I should be looking for a new pre-2017.
