I'm running an SC project exhaust and the difference is significant. Yes I know that most baffling is done in the cat but the difference in tone is massive, especially when you're doing over 6k revs.
I can get away without earplugs with the standard Akram, but not with the SC.

It's based on the R1100s boxer cup replika so one white, one blue.
Proper mottorad colours.

Absolutely correct. The cat is still in place. What peaked my interest was this video on youtube. I was looking for a better exhaust note without having to change headers and remap the ECU.
Thanks for your insight.
Cheers.



Installed the SC project S1 slip on yesterday. Love it !! Literally took 15 minutes. A nice upgrade (in sound) from the stock Akra can. Beautiful fit and finish. Not deafening. A deeper, woodsy note that comes alive around 6Krpm .

I've just swapped the standard Akra for the GP style bean can on my 2018 - it is definitely louder, especially as the exhaust valve opens up - I'd say it's about as loud as the Mk1 SIR's Akra aftermarket can if not slightly louder.

It's not street legal which is the big issue on a pull from the boys in blue and could risk a fine as it doesn't look sound deadening at all !!!! 

The Akra is very well made and comes with a bracket already built into its construction so you can use the standard (or aftermarket) exhaust hanger. Fuelling is absolutely spot on from bolting it on. I'm not keen on those cans that don't have this support and are held on only by the exhaust clamps !

There aren't many options for the 17+ as far as end cans go, but the standard 'can' is humongous so I needed something aesthetically better.

Arrow do some end cans but I haven't seen one fitted - A Yoshi would be nice !
