Re: Akrapovic or Graves Slip-on Exhaust

Kudos on the purchase with STG. I went with Solomotoparts for the all carbon can. They gave me a price match on the item. You are on the money with cost though. I paid right around $40.00 more for mine.
I was stuck between the two until I saw the Akra 'all' carbon design.

Regarding the noise, it sounds a little deeper across the rev range. IMO. Not gonna be much of difference since most of the sound suppression is done underneath the bike, where all the cats are located. Just a little observation, the body of the can is carbon fiber, but then painted black. Anyway, here is some eye candy.

The project continues. Black out the rear sets and kick stand. Get them them powder coated or replace them............decisions, decisions, decisions.

Re: Akrapovic or Graves Slip-on Exhaust

So far so good. Doesn't have as much deep rumble as I had hoped for (silencer removed) but, it does cause the bike to respond differently. To the good that is. Ran it for about 6 hours the other day (my thighs are paying for it today). Mishima to Odawara to Yokohama came back down, cut through Atsugi then down to Atami, then Ito and back to Mishima.
