Hey Kosmo...Akra stopped making exhausts a while back....sorry. They best you can do is keep an eye on ebay and other sites for someone to sell their old system. Good luck !

Check with Nathan from rider discounts? I think they may have a system but not sure if it's a full.

I recommend the mufflers in titanium.
I have a full system with carbon mufflers.
When new or rebuilt, they look awesome, but you'll need to replace the sleeves over time as they degrade.

These twins are hard on carbon mufflers and they form cracks over time.
The rebuild kits are around $530+. And there's no guarantee they will continue making them over time.

The mufflers with titanium sleeves will last practically forever. Only needing occasional repacking.
That's why I'm trying to replace my carbon sleeves with titanium.

that and if you are dead set on Akrapovic, this is really your only option. This is the first brand new system i've seen in years and they do not pop up used very often either. You will have a really hard time finding them.

you may want to look into other systems then. Maybe Yoshimura or Jardine.
