That system looks good - very ducati like and looks like good pipework especially where it twists back through the swingarm. I also like the reduction in pipe diameter around the top y joint for back pressure. Is this now a production item?
Unfortunately the cops in my area would have you off the road for noise - what a pisser :(
I got in on the first batch by pre-ordering and waiting 30 days, but they are starting regular production in January, and it is tuned on a dyno for max power, they used the Akra map. It is not super loud while cruising but when you lay into it :o you can devastate the person you are passing, I think I made a guy riding a ZX10 shit himself yesterday :lol:

Who knows about the travel issue, its actual with the bike it rest it leans right up against the inside of the swingarm where it passes up and through. Not super tight, and there is some pad type thing there, but no matter which way I installed it, adjusted it or moved it, it always rubs a bit\hits right there.

I am completely satisfied with my Arrow Titanium DeCat exhaust. According to my scale, the weight savings is 10.5 lbs. compared with the factory muffler and cat. The sound is plenty loud (it's all 'straight through' now) and, to my ears, sounds similar to a full Akra, without the Akra expense but also without the Akra weight savings of Ti headers. Very cost effective! Cheers. 8-)

Installed my Akra exhaust.
Will be taking it to the dealership to install the tune later in the week.

Interestingly you can't fit this exhaust system without removing the Flapper valve controller.

They give you a plug for the wiring, but without the map, it is coming up with MTC error.Image

That looks sweet. I always thought the orange Frame would look the Shiz with the dark shrouds and front guard. I bought a black one and want to swap the front wheel for an orange one.

Do you know what mid pipe you have? Catalyzed or the strait though?

I've been debating running the same set up i just haven't been able to find much on DB levels on power increases after a tune.

As mentioned in my post above, it is straight-through. No cat (DeCat)...the mid-pipe is just a straight-through 'resonator' which is basically a small muffler. It is NOT what I call loud at small throttle openings. If I gas it hard, it gets loud fast and sounds straight-through. In my view, it's the best of both worlds, controlled by my throttle hand. I am TOTALLY happy with the weight savings, obvious power increases and appearance! ;)

I understood that it was decated as in the oem cat was removed. I was just wonding what version of the arrow midpipe you had. They make a version thats strait thought and a version with a small amount of catalyst inside. Both look the same externally.

Im still struggeling to find an exhaust that picks up power, drops weight and wont make my ears bleed without spending all the money on the Akra

My Arrow mid-pipe AND muffler are both 'straight-through' with no cat disks inside. No restrictions. 100% free flow.

Thanks,
I painted the tank a darker colour, and also painted the side fairings, will update my build thread

I love the look of the black one!

I bought my full Akrapovic system from Rottweiler. It came without the K&N filter and SAS blockoff plates at a reduced cost. I had already done the SAS removal and I don't like K&N filters (I installed the Rottweiler airbox with 100/80 stacks).

Just so you know that if you don't need that stuff you can buy it without.
