Thanx Tim! Very greatfull to get your info.
It sounds good. Ill go and check the bike then and if everything is ok i will get it.

Regarding the ECU, if its the original ECU that is mapped it should be ok right?

Buy the Stage 2...plenty of people mount the mufflers inside the original full plastic covers if you are worried about heat. But dont be. They run pretty cool up there... Also,the original plastic covers are possible to find for sale..I have a a pair in the attic.
   The Stg2 system is worth a fortune if you sell it on...!
MT-01 / SOLD! Please delete.

The majority of Stage 2 setups don't have the Yamaha Stage 2 ECU as the full Ti exhaust system was often sold separately and that cost enough without the ECU! It also wasn't essential to have the single seat kit so quite a few are the standard seat.

I wouldn't get too excited about the Stage 2 exhaust as it doesn't make a massive difference to the power output - my original 2005 Stage 1 (end cans only) with an ECU modification and a dyno setup was slightly up on my later 2010 Stage 2 with Yamaha ECU but they do feel different. Even the Stage 3ish bored out one i have isn't much better on paper but once again feels different.

Here are two photos as i mensioned. Stage 1 slip ons with full exhaust covers. Stage two the one i am considering buying. Otherwise i have one on the same price all original parts on the bike. Only two defects for the one with the original parts: LH fork trace of small oil leak steam and the end of the exhaust cover has a small damage at the rear end.

Hi Max!

Thank you for your quick reply! This bike has the double seat mouted already. I will attach a photo here so you can see it.
That was a very good thing to ask him. I will do that regarding the original parts!
Why on stage one there is a full exhaust cover for akra and on stage 2 they change it? Is it only for a sporter look with the single seat?
Thats also why i wonder why it cant be done with the stage two.

Hi Casino,

Usually if a bike has stage 2 it has the single seat kit too. My advise would still be buy the bike with stage 2 so long as it's not priced way higher than the standard bike, as you could sell all the stage 2 parts without a problem. Just make sure the stage 2 bike comes with all it's original parts including ECU.

Hello guys. I am about to by finaly my MT-01 🙂 But i have now just see one with Akra stage 2 also for sale here in Sweden. So my question is, why on stage two mod the exhaust cover is opened from the middle exposing the exhaust can? I mean if i want ti have a passenger on the bike isnt it burn risk on them when they ride at the back or go on or off the seat?
Otherwise i will just fet one with the original exhaust syst even though i live the akra syst!

Thank very much in advance for your help

You'll notice how I blatantly ignore Tim's comment on fuel filler cap. :))

Ok just wanted to update everyone who isn't on one of the Facebook groups. We thought it would be good to do a version of the sprocket cover for those who don't want to fit rearsets. We also thought it might be nice to get rid of the piece of plastic on the other side so there will be 2 offerings for this side; one with another MT logo so you can have MT logos both sides or one matching the 2nd bit of design work on the sprocket cover. Cost of the sprocket cover will be 180 plus P&P the other cover is TBA but it will be a fair bit cheaper than the sprocket cover. Hopefully have some made by early July.

No turbo on this one but it is supposedly a bored out Patrick Racing kit installed with velocity stacks. Not sure which one or if the cams were done as it's had a hard life and the previous owner was also working on hearsay. I do recall it being on the old MT Forum and i'm pretty sure the OG owner did a lot of work on it.

 I did get a basic dyno tune with the standard headers and Remus end cans last year but it really needed the full akra system at a minimum to let it breath a bit easier. The guy who did the initial dyno did say the head looked like it had been flowed etc and the right hand dyno feels very different to the S2 one i also have.

I did warn John that it had a colourful past!

I'll keep you posted.


PS - Ill need to work on the handling when i get it back. I really don't like the short Rizoma bars and risers. It's not too bad if you push it hard but the S2 is sweeter handling. It may also be the Metz tyres as i'm a Michelin man!
