Would you mind doing a db test? You can download an app. The one I downloaded said it does need calibration. I am going to go to a guitar shop.

Hmm this looks like generic Akrapovic exhaust tip available on eBay.

How does that guy get away with selling those counterfeit things on EBay so long? Doesn't Akro want to stop him? Laws different or something?

Yeah, I asked him if that was even a real Akropovic tip. As you can expect he never replied back to me.

Anyone know what size tip I would need to go on the AKRA system? Probably going to be stupid loud but wouldn't mine trying it for 60 bucks.

That's an exhaust tip for a car tailpipe!! , you can see the jubilee type clamp it's using to fit onto the bike exhaust, not a bike slip on at all!!. You can get them off Amazon here in the UK?.

I’ve heard one now, way too loud. Also someone was telling me you can damage the engine if you go with one of these, not sure how true that is.

Won't damage anything unless you remove the cat and all the back pressure.

If you think this is loud you better just stay with the original system
