You'll probably have better luck than me.

They replied now, I have to contact clear alternatives
directly for the warranty.

It sucks. Guess i'll have to pay shipping costs to have it replaced.

Unhappy Akrapovic Slip-On Packaging **58Cycle.com **

Hi All,

Recently I just purchased an akrapovic slip on hex for 06 600RR. After unboxing, I noticed there were no plastic bag that covers the muffler. Can anyone verify this? The reason I want to know is because I'm suspecting that it has been returned before since there were finger prints on the muffler. Not to mention, it has another layer of tape overlapping the original manufacture's tape.

Thanks for those who helped.

I had no plastic on my muffler. It was in a styrofoam 2 piece form fit case. If it looks fine cosmetically and there are no rattles from anything being loose inside. . .who cares. . finger prints wipe off.

Well mine didn't come with the silencer, did yours? I'm anal because it broke my wallet paying for it thinking that it's NEW. That's why I wanted to verify.

Are you sure it didn't have a silencer? It's not a separate piece. . it's already installed in the muffler. If it truly does not have the silencer, then I would exchange it or return it as that would be some pretty good evidence that it was a returned item.

Here's everything that came with the box. I can tell the screws and the spring is packaged as a replacement parts and not OEM.

I don't see any pics, but if you have any doubts and you're not happy, then return it and buy from someone else. Try some of the site vendors as they can surely hook you up.

return it man, and just say you want to change it cos you dont like it or have the doubt that is used or something like that, and if they say no, just ask for your money man simply as that dont you think, in this moment you are an unsatisfied costumer and they have to do they job to make you a happy costumer. that is my opinion.

Pic Re-up

Yeah, I already wrote a complaint letter to them. I bought it from 58Cycle. The problem? They don't do refund, only store credit. Now I have to wait at least another 3 weeks to get it straighten out before I can install it on my bike.

I asked them if I can purchase another one, send the new one to me while I send the old one back for a refund. They said they can't. Only store credit. Pretty wack! I'll just have to wait and see.

This is just a precaution to people who are thinking about getting it from 58cycle.

Here's their response...

The system is not used because it has fingerprints. We have never had a return here for that exhaust!

Listing states.

*-Actual canister end cap is open or has removable internal baffled as shown.

Normally the pictures are taken in Europe where the baffle is used and none of the US versions have them.








Last question...

Can any US buyer verify please??

Is the last statement true? No US version has the baffle/silencer?

I bought mine from www.surfsidemoto.com and it came with the silencer. You could ask some of the vendors on the site to see what they have seen though, but I'm almost positive they come with a silencer.

I will say that if there is nothing wrong with the exhaust and you weren't going to use the silencer anyways, then it really shouldn't matter. I can tell you that I as well as most people removed the silencer even before installing the exhaust.

Thank you all for your input. I understand and I know that I'm not going to use the silencer but it wasn't the point.

Suppose you're buying a $600 TV where the box is double taped, and the part that was suppose to be included was not there, say a remote. Would you still keep the TV?

She said that they have never had any returns. NO SH*T! With their outrageous restocking fees and their no refund, store credit only policy who would? Already, this is not the kind of business that anyone of us would want. I didn't want a return or a refund, I just wanted an exchange for a New In Box product that I paid for and this is what I get...still.

Like I said in my previous post. It is just a precaution for those who are planning to buy at 58cycle.

I've heard 75% bad things and 5% good... the other 20% was indifferent... I personally wont deal with someone who makes me return to manufacturer when the part is brand new. Even walmart takes my **** back when theres a notice on the item to not return but to contact manufacturer, the item in worn and used, and I dont have a receipt. Pretty bad when walmarts service is better than a 58cycle



Currently have an XR650L thumper

RIP 06 600RR
Looking for another 600RR next year...

As I've stated as well as others in this thread. . if you're not happy, return it and buy from someone else. They can say that they will charge a restocking fee all they want. Send it back with delivery and signature confirmation and then tell them that if they don't refund you in full that you'll just call your CC company and have them reverse the charge. Every CC company I know of would side with their customers over the vendor.

The only issue is that when you look at the description of the product, it does state: *-Actual canister end cap is open or has removable internal baffled as shown.

When you go to the Akrapovic site and look up the configuration for that exhaust, they do have models that don't come with the silencer. So it could be stated that you didn't read the description carefully enough before purchasing. At the same time, most reputable vendors would work with you if you truly weren't happy with your purchase. If they are offering you store credit without the restocking fee, then I would say that they're trying to work with you within reason.

Thanks CNK. I called and spoke to them. They had some guy from Lockhart Philips to call me to let me know that my model does not come with the baffle. It has cleared up. I'll stick to what I have.
