I just swapped the stock cannister and slip on portion of pipe for the Akrapovic. I've been holding (caressing???;)) my Akrapovic ti system for weeks now, and couldn't take it any more... it always felt really light.

BUT SWEET LORD TUNDERIN' JEESES the stocker weighs a TON !!! It is UNREAL the difference in weight between the Akro and the stocker... they say 9 pounds but it feels like even more. I honestly think the stock can is made of lead, and the lead pipe has a good chunk of cement content. It's unreal the difference.

I'll be posting more pics soon. By the way, sounds louder than stock, not obnoxious, with a deep idle and throaty rev to it. Much smoother than my last pipe (D&D) but still loud enough to draw attention. Very nice, kinda sexy sound...

Are Akro's louder than Yoshi's? I heard that the yoshi RS3... I think it is? Aren't THAT much louder than stock. When you get the RPM up do you have that wailing that can be heard from miles away? There is a guy in my town with a full race exhaust on his 600...and when he does runs behind my house (on the highway) you can literally hear him from like a mile away if he gets the RPM's up. Sounds like a small airplane doing a low flyby at 100+ mph.

Actually I find Yosh and Akro to be a similar volume... I'm talking the RS3 Race here, not the street-legal Zyclone version...

But I think the Akro is a little louder on top, more "waily" than the Yosh.

My buddy with the Hindle on the R6 can be heard a couple subdivisions over. That's how I know when they're close to the house, and I start getting my helmet on... LOL... it's RUDE loud.

Dude I fucking love the sound of my ZX6R stock...We've covered this on previous topics...but the Kawi Induction Howl has me hooked! If I ever get an exhaust I'm definitely gonna try and get something more on the quiet side...The sound of the induction and engine is just too good for me!
