    I’ve had a MIVV end can on my Akra headers for some time now and runs very well thank you very much...but always looking st options...then realise us 15/19 owners have been well and truly ‘Had Over’ because after the pigs ear they offered us lot see the 20 on have reverted to the traditional option or be it at a price  :001:

    Just look at the two Akro options for the two different models.

    Yeah, the Gen 2 exhaust does look like a traditional end can compared to the Gen 1. The Gen 2 Akra (at least on the M Sport version) doesn't come with a baffle from what I can see - that is an optional extra  :008:

    Just shows how the cow gut baffles it to get through Euro5.

    I've asked two dealers about the gen 2 model Akra exhaust and both have said it doesn't really change the exhaust sound, just looks nice and saves a little weight. I've decided not to bother with one.

    If you want a decent sound...headers are the only way.

    Yes and unfortunately not road legal in the U.K. on the latest bikes from what I can see. Thought the bike sounded pretty good on the test ride anyway so not a huge problem!

    Not a problem at all here in down-under land. The stock exhaust and fueling is obviously made to meet the emissions regs....but there's so much more/better performance in these engines when they're allowed to breath properly. I'm not talking about horsepower, it's the much better rideabilty and "user friendliness" which is the reason most of us do it.

    I've had full headers on every bike I've ever owned, never had the police even comment about it once. Even a grumpy MOT bike will pass a bike with a cat delete he'll just put an advisory for "noisy exhaust" and end of story. I wouldn't worry.

    I got an Arrows on my Gen2 and even without the baffle it was whisper quiet. I've dropped an ECU tweak in that opens the inlet flapper and exhaust valve in Software. About the only way you can get a bit of noise without changing the headers.
