HELP: Akra slip-on with OEM xpipe

Hi,

For those who has the akra slip-on connected to the OEM xpipe, what adapters are you guys using?
The one from IND 400 something is just absurd.
I just sold the slip-on to someone and I am helping him get the adapters.

thanks.

I think I have the adapters in storage. I got them from EAS when I had the Akra slip with the MRF X. But when I got the Akra Evo X I didn't need them anymore. So try EAS first and if you run out of options hit me up.

I think there is some confusion as to the parts required. The adapters that we sell are for an individual mounting the Akrapovic x-pipe to any non-Akrapovic rear section. Akrapovic does not use a ball flange like the original factory system, so it requires a fabricated adapter. This is where our solution comes into play.

As for the slip-on. Installing this to the factory x-pipe simply requires the Akrapovic adapters and clamps. Akrapovic sells these pieces for $30/piece. #6 and #7

You are referring to the RKP adaptors, those are for adapting an Akra x-pipe to an OE ball flange muffler. The piece he needs is the Akrapovic ones that come with a slip on.
