Could you please post pics of your seats. It looks like you've custom modified both seats. What's going on there? It looks great.

What's your thoughts on the difference between the two exhaust systems? Both equally loud, or the akro less annoying?

I had the full arrow shorty on my 2015 and removed the baffle. It sounded great. But when the 2017 akra gp can came out I fell in love with it and ordered the 2017-18 headers and the 2017-18 akra gp can. I sold the arrow system and installed the 2017-18 akra system. If you want to keep the passenger pegs then you would have to buy the 2017-18 right passenger bracket to mount the 2017-18 full akra system with 2017-18 akra gp can. If you dont care about keeping the passenger pegs then you buy the 2017-18 evotech exhaust hanger bracket with left side passenger block off kit and order the rubber grommet and metal sleave from bmw that goes into the right bmw passenger bracket where the exhaust mounts right to it.

Regarding the sound. The akra 2017-18 gp can is pretty loud. Its a loud grumble high pitch sound. While the Austin Racing on my s1000rr is a low rumble. While the akra does sound nice it is pretty loud. Louder than I thought it would be and even with my wireless ear buds and the music turned up loud the exhaust is still heard. Some find the akra lound and obnoxious. At times so do I lol. And at times I love it. But when a certain rider allegedly white lines. Cars that are up to 3 to 4 car lengths ahead of me...i mean a certain rider. The cars move out of the way. Its also a gorgeous set up. If youre interested pm me and i can get you my bros info and he can give you a discount. Another reason I do all the work to all my bikes is because i get everything at cost

You running Luimoto covers over a stock seat, or is that BMW comfort seat by chance?
