IRVINE, Calif. - Known fact: Akrapovic makes high-quality exhaust systems for sportbikes that win races around the world. But the performance exhaust manufacturer also makes a variety of exhaust parts for American V-twins.

Akrapovic’s 2013 Sportster Custom Slip-On Line ($1,049.95) is a ready-to-install muffler set that complements the traditional XL style with chromed or blacked-out stainless steel construction and matching header pipe heat shields, all backed by Akrapovic’s extensive performance heritage.

The complete installation kit includes anti-seize and thread-locking compounds, and an optional tone-reducing valve can be installed that allows the rider to adjust volume output by hand with a simple cable-operated switch.

Friedrich Thomas, product manager, explains, “When we introduced the Akrapovic Custom range of exhausts, we never imagined the amount of response received from Harley-Davidson owners around the world. We can give Sportster owners yet another alternative to express their individuality with unique customized machines.”.
