Does the (2020-up) AU version of the Z900 use the updated (euro-5) header as the EU model or same header that we in US have? (euro-4 2017-2021 design)

I ask because Akrapovic makes two headers for the Z900 now (So does SC-P). My Akra has a non standard 56.5mm OD outlet. So it depends on the SC Project slip-on. I'm pretty sure the CRT has a 60mm ID so you will need a carbon biscuit. The Akra doesn't come with any and it would depend on the slip-on, not header.

If you have your heart set on SC Project slip-on, why not just use their header. This way there is ZERO chance you run into issues. They make a really good header!!

FYI: The CRT slip-on is mega loud. I had the GP version and took it off after 1 ride. Even with ear plugs  :151:

I understand i should use the sc project headers but the reason behind choosing akra headers is
1. I am getting it cheaper and
2. I am going to put powercomander IV and it has fuel map of akra headers for z900.
 

That way i will not loose the warranty of my bike and a lot more

1) Cheaper can mean more aggravation and what if OD and ID don't match. Sanity cost money.
2) Trust me, the PC5 is not so well "tuned" that it knows if you are running an Akra, SC-P or chinese knock-off. You are putting way too much trust in their basic downloadable canned tune.

If I were you, I would not run a download tune. The price you will pay for the PC5 you can have a local shop do a custom tune (with what ever flash system they offer). Even if you need to spend an extra $200 its worth the difference. We've seen our share of used PC5 for sale here...Will yours be next  :084:
