Looking for a reliable source: Akra Sleeves

My decade old Akra mufflers are beginning to look like they could use a refresher. Rather than redo the CF I would like to re-sleeve them in Ti. Is there a reliable resource that I am not aware of, other than the $250 kits I have found...per can, that can supply the sleeves for me?

I really don't want to all out replace them with another kind of muffler unless I can do it inexpensively, this came up as I am in the process of preparing for a fresh coat of paint, etc.

Thanks!

I'd contact a local bike shop to have them contact Parts Unlimited to see if they can cross reference the replacement Ti muffler sleeves.
If your mufflers are part of a Akrapovic full race system, they use 500mm sleeves (carbon or Ti).

Thanks! I came across the PU stuff late last night. I'm gonna have to call them and see what kit is what as it's impossible to tell online.

Awesome!

I have the system with the full Ti header and 470mm cans (had to go check and remeasure...it's been awhile).
