Hey guys,

I am looking at getting an Akrapovic slip on (Slip-On Line SS) exhaust for my R3. But it looks like it would get water in it if it rains, this is a concern for me because we have a wet season where I live. I am asking you guys if this would be an issue if water did get in my exhaust, otherwise ill buy a different one if its a problem. Although I really want to buy this one for the looks and the sound. Thanks for the help.

Do you park inside or outside? It's not really an issue as most exhausts point up at an angle. If you constantly left it out during a rain storm, water would settle at lowest point of exhaust, but would just blow out on start up or dry up beforehand.

FYI, slip-ons are purely for looks on the R3 as you still have the CAT before it.

Water can get in your OEM exhaust as well so that shouldn't be a factor in buying an exhaust. If you are expecting biblical levels of rain I suggest you construct an ark.

Otherwise covering the tip with something heat resistant and water repelling should help. If you don't intend to ride the bike even a plastic bag taped over the end will do.

It wouldn't be undercover when i park it at work all day, so i was just worried if it would pool up at the bottom. But if you guys assure me it should be okay then Ill probably get it. Thanks for the info.
