Akrapovic Racing Exhaust System BMW K1300R / K1300S
The Akrapovic Racing Line has been designed specifically for demanding riders and represents an ideal balance between price and performance. The exhaust systems are dramatically lighter compared to stock exhaust systems and feature exceptional production quality and increased engine performance combined with pure racing sound output. The headers and mid-pipes are constructed of high-quality stainless steel conical tubes with precision handcrafting. A special process known as hydroforming is used in the manufacturing of the exhaust pipes. This process injects pressurized water into each tube to form the ideal shape for optimum exhaust flow without causing creases or compromising the strength of the steel.
Akrapovic Exhaust’s unique design enables them to obtain the maximum output for each specific model of motorcycle, while significantly reducing overall weight. It’s not just about peak power - Akrapovic exhaust systems deliver increased performance throughout the entire RPM range. Increased power and torque result in a much smoother ride. All Akrapovic exhaust system measurements are formulated on in-house computer-controlled flow benches.
The Racing Line is identical to Akrapovic’s top range Evolution Line exhaust systems, with the major difference being the material that is used for the headers and mid-pipes. The headers and mid-pipes of the Evolution Line are constructed exclusively of titanium while the Racing Line uses stainless steel.

Akrapovic Racing Exhaust System BMW K1300R / K1300S 2009-2015
Good value upgrade.
Exhaust shipped to Australia in six days. Thank you guys, great service.
Fitting took two hours if you include the strip down time for the OEM exhaust.
This exhaust is very well made, with no noticable flaws in the welding or carbon fibre. Fit is perfect, with no shoving things into place or bending things out of the way, a quality item.
Performance is certainly improved, but what is really evident is how much smoother the bike runs; any snatchy throttle response is eliminated and hesitation is banished.
This system is obviously noisier than the OEM part, but not obtrusively so. Below 6000rpm it's not much louder at all, but rather deeper and with more of a growl. Above that and it does rather start to wail gloriously; not one for the shy and retiring at these engine speeds, but one presumes the shy and retiring rarely see 10000rpm plus anyway.
Overall a very good upgrade and certainly better value than a slip on. Would commend.

A shopper asked:I am relatively new to bikes and just bought my 2014 K1300S.. Wanted it to be special so ordered it with the HP cluster (which really killed me on $$$)..Now want to put on a cool looking exhaust..Really like the look of Akrapovic full system carbon but can't decide which one to get, racing or evolution.. Seems like they look the same.. Is there noticeable difference in how they sound? What are their differences? and can they be used without the MAP power commander? THANK YOU!!!!Oct 8, 2013
Richard C:The only real difference is that the evolution system is made of titanium and the racing is made of stainless steel. So while you wonwon't see any difference in power or sound the look of the metal differs as the exhaust is used more, the stainless will turn the typical yellowish hue and the titanium will get that galvanized blue look to it and you will save another pound or two in weight with the titanium. However the evolution system is another $900 or so dollars and then you still have to decide if you want the street legal which incorporated all the stock servos for emmisions controls and a catalytic converter quick will hurt the power gains but depending on where you live (California) may be a good option to keep cops from impounding your bike if you get pulled over. Any one of the systems can be used without the power commander especially since BMW came out with the new self adjusting ECU modules in 2010 so you shouldn't have any problems but the bike will backfire for up to a few days after install until the ECU adjusts to the changes. I changed from a two brothers slip on the a akrapovich full race and I love the quality the sound the ease of install and the look. Hope this helps Oct 8, 2013
A S:There are some differences between the two systems besides just the material used for the pipes. The Race Line system is much cheaper but, according to Akrapovic, is louder. It also weighs 3.5 lbs. more, but is still about 3.7 lbs. less than the stock system. More importantly, from about 10,000 rpm's until redline it provides significantly more power and torque than the Evolution Line (which is why they call it "Race"). Both systems use the same installation manual, but I believe the mufflers have a slightly different shape, the Race model being more oval.Jan 30, 2014
andres r:The Akrapovic is the way to go i just started riding this year and have to say it was the best purchase I could have made its loud rumble great and looks beast the one thing I woukd say I'd get the power commander some bikes don't require check worth dealership u got your bike efrom they would no i ride 2013 ninja 650 I have a video on YouTube if u wanna little more info on sound just type in 2013 kawasaki ninja 650 Akrapovic exhaust system Oct 8, 2013
Ziyad W:I have an S1000rr, don't know if this applies the same to the K1300s. The difference between the racing and evolution is that the racing has no catalytic converter. I bought the racing to get the most power. I have no idea about how both differ in terms of noise but the racing is not too loud for me. I rode the bike for a month with the exhaust and without a power commander and it was very sluggish and fuel economy was terrible. I installed the power commander V and downloaded the map from dynojet website. Since then the bike is very responsive, runs way better and fuel economy improved. Best results are with a dyno tune which I didn't do. I highly recommend to get a power commander with the exhaust.Oct 8, 2013
