    Have you tried one? Maybe I didn't have enough time with it before trading the RTW - but it felt like a novelty, not something I would pay money to have on a bike. I stopped using it after a few...

    I got the price I paid for my RT when I traded for a K1600GT. No allowance/reduction. That's also what it says on the BMW "four options paper" sent to dealers. What was the description of the...

    What makes you think they will have "deep" discounts? With all the good reviews, and after the shock problem is addressed and faded from memory, I would expect them to be in demand.

    If you look up the shipping weights for each muffler on line, the stock is 10lbs and the Akrapovic is 7lbs. The GS felt like a much bigger differential so I personally wouldn't swap it to save 3lbs.

    FWIW: I replaced my muffler with a Akrapovic on my GS a few years ago and it saved quite a few pounds. I wouldn't do it for the sound or performance - it was strictly a weight reduction for the bike.

    Harley had a "stop ride" order on their 2014 bikes last fall - it made pretty big news, but I suspect didn't hurt the brand because they fixed the problem immediately.
