WTB: High mount midpipe for SP1 (Akrapovic)

Hey guys, I recently picked up an RC51 and the bike came with a full Akrapovic, low mount system. I would like to convert this sucker to a high mount. Looking to buy a high mount mid-pipe and the bracket to hold the cans up. If there is something else that is needed for the conversion, input would be awesome.

The full Akrapovic is a nice system and gives best performance in the top end.

Akrapovic never made a high mount or Banzai mount exhaust for the general aftermarket.

Member here, The Stig... He has one of two Works exhaust I have seen owned by an enthusiast he found somewhere.

Much like hens teeth, you will not find them.

Best bet is to find a set of Banzai pipes and buy adaptors to fit the Akrapovic to those. It has been done and looks quite nice.
Other option is to buy the HRC LADYBIRD replica ( I am going this route soon ) and again buy adaptors to fit the Akrapovic cans.

Adapters aren't needed for lbp and akra.

Easiest option by far is to contact simon kobe and get his lbp bonzai midpipes and subframe mounts.
