I will not talk you out, I can only talk you into buying them. Do it before someone beats you to it, then post pictures for us to drool over.

Got the large titanium ovals to replace the carbon mufflers on my full Akrapovic system.
Also have their HRC replica full titanium system.
You won't be disappointed.

Simon is great to work with.
When I ordered my HRC replica system on a Friday, I received it the following Tuesday from half-way around the world and through customs. Incredible.

Thanks Sub,

I did a little more research and found the seller is also a forum member and has a very good reputation here and ebay!

I looked for and found several youtube videos of some of his GP kits, but couldnt find anything related to these slip ons.

How did the ladybirds compare to your akras...sound wise? Louder?
Are the cans in this kit considered "large ovals"?

Considering the quality and reviews i dont think i can be "talked out of them"

If I needed a exhaust there is no doubt that it would be those Ladybirds. Get them! You will not be disappointed!

The LBP large ovals are slightly smaller in diameter than the Akrapovic mufflers used on the RC51.

The LBP large ovals are 500mm in overall length, which is shorter than the Akrapovic muffers where just the sleeve alone is 500mm in length (not including the end caps).



The exit diameter of the LBP mufflers is also a bit larger than the Akrapovic mufflers as well, which should make for a nice sound.



The LBP mufflers are practically the same dimensions as the Akrapovic EVO-1 mufflers, but lighter.

I had the first generation of the long ovals. Awesome craftsmanship, quality fit and materials. Good sound, not nearly as loud as the gp cans:








And for those interested, here is what the GP cans sound like with the baffles in and out (Don't laugh at me talking, I took this for a prospective buyer of the engine)


More video with the baffles in:



Running on track with no baffles:





I'm always right.
