    Akrapovic Exhaust Sticker Problem

    After reading some posts on here and a bit of Googling I came across sr sign design.com

    They offered foil exhaust stickers and I bought these



    After my first ride out today and only going for about 10mins before stopping for fuel, I was greeted one end wrinkling up with the heat, then after my run up to Heartside I ended up with this



    Im really disappointed because I like the look of the can complete with sticker and it was advertised as heat proof.

    Any suggestions where I can get one that will work?

    How hot is it getting? I can't remember it being mad. It did melt a sticker off when i had it but it wasn't foil backed, was high temperature vinyl but don't quite believe the guy who supplied it.

    Does it sound and go better most importantly?!

    It sounds fantastic, infact when I fired it up this morning one of the lads was standing behind it got a right old shock!!

    It goes like a dream but will be better still when I can get a good handfull and not have to keep moving my hand round to get more twist.

    Oh Oh you didn't buy it off that dodgy fecker did you, there's your problem. As for the throttle what you need is a QA throttle 90 instead of 100.

    I've just had a Venhill one fitted by Griff at Aprilia Performamce, with a set of Renntec Medium Grips & some R&G bar ends, and it's wicked! Less than a quarter of a turn to full throttle, I'm lovin it!!! Coupled with some funky shorty levers, it's much better to ride & I think it looks great
