Very nice, like the comfort seat too bet that's friendly on the derrier, I'd have one but have the red and black version so won't go as well as you Tyco.

Like you I had a Ducati with full termi, then a superduke with SC project can,
I did feel that my S1KR sounded loud but a bit thin. I've only put an SC Project end can on it, but it has a lot more depth, and sounds fabulous on the overrun. Highly recommended and looks so much better than the awful standard Akro. Also one advantage of the SC over the Akro Moto GP style one is that you can remove the foot hangers


Rawdon, who makes your lower fairing and where did you purchase it.

Last I checked they don't ship to North America...

I bought mine on eBay, but I didn't immediately find any when I looked just now.

Put a full Acro exhaust on mine with a Rapidbike EVO which has worked great. It controls all 8 injectors and runs an auto tune map based off what you want from the Lambda sensors readings  then tells the ECU the Lambdas are running in the normal range so the map isnt automatically adjusted by the ECU, really smart.They are working on a up down quick shifter auto blip which will plug in to the accessory port for less than $500 which would be awesome.

Well after test riding an XR the other day i felt that my bike was missing a big bit of mid-range compared to that, so decided to put the original Akra back on(fitted the SC project at it's first service so never rode it in anger with the standard pipe), and what a difference, top end feels slightly less, but i can get away with 2nd in tight hair pins now instead of dropping into 1st, it's like it's got a new lease of life
Although the standard exhaust is ok I really do like the sound of my SC especially the pops and bangs off throttle and banging down on the quickshifter, I've also noticed that the bike has a really nice induction roar that i couldn't hear before.
Not sure what to do now, i'm guessing that the difference in length is the cause, so do i get the moto gp style Akra, or maybe get a set of headers to give myself more noise- the volume of the standards isn't bad, but there's no depth to the sound.

Almost everyone has reported a loss in midrange with a full system as well as increase in theobnoxious noise. Love loud exhaust but without the noise.

To be honest a very nice australian man made the decision for me, when he T boned me doing a U turn.
Having owned them both I genuinely think that the S is the better overall bike, But I would still have another Superduke. Main reason when i changed was a lack of local dealers near me.

Hmm, almost everyone who rides a super duke won't get back on a S1000R. Its all motor. What do you like about the R more?
