Wow....six?  For the XR?  Will have to check it out, thanks!   :002:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Well, they have the two Akrapovic, silver and black, the Akra header and three flavors of that ugly Cobra double tip.

Some of the aftermarket ones are truly horrible! :164:

Did I mention I'm getting my Akra fitted at the first service today? :008:

It's big, but the noise makes up for it! I like the look. From behind, it just says "don't f#uk with me!" :008:

Does the full system eliminate the catalytic converter?  What is the hp increase with the full system?

It appears that it eliminates the ugliness from the converter. I have the stainless steal set up coming.
- 5.5 hp increase.
- 5.5 ft/lbs torque increase
- 5 kg less weight

The cat isn't as ugly as on the S1000R, but I would like to "hide" it. Maybe someone will bring an extended bellypan onto the market, or I could always get it painted.
