Yeah on a 2020, I don't see the slip on causing issues. Kawi offered the Performance Pacakage with an Akra slip on.

 I know and that is why I find it very strange. All the paperwork says it shouldn't cause any issues but the reality is that it is doing something to affect it's performance. We'll see what turns up in the next couple of days. 👍

I'm sorry you have that problem with your 2020 Z900, it's very strange considering only slipon is replaced (and probably with db killer).
Did you try riding without Akrapovic slipon or stock silencer (just breadbox) to verify that lean condition is the problem, and not some defect in Akrapovic slipon (that would be even stranger, but, who knows)

Btw, what is the sound difference comparing to stock silencer? Im asking because you have 2020 EU model like i do. On 2017-2019  (or even 2020 on American model) there is not much of a difference, but i'm curious about EU model wich has different breadbox?

I haven't tried riding without a muffler but the problem resolved as soon as I put back the stock muffler. Doubt that there is an issue with the akra muffler itself but I'll tell the dealet to try it out just in case.

With regards to sound, There was not a big difference to tell you the truth. It only made like 10% deeper roar and gave it a couple of deep pops on stepping off the throttle, which I liked, But other than that it was pretty much the same.

So, the same as with 2017-2019 except generally louder

So update on the issue. Went to the dealer today and suggested to have the clutch switch repaired. (forgot it broke off when I had the clutch lever replaced with aftermarket). He said that resistance in the switch might affect the ecu as it thinks that the clutch is always pressed in. Does this make any sense? I still need to change the switch so we'll see where this takes us.

I hope for you it will solve the problem! It does make sense a bit I guess

If the problem resolved putting the stock muffler back on, I dont see how the clutch switch confusing the ecu could be the culprit

At this point I'm totally lost. I'll change the switch and see what happens. I Hope he's right.
