    Looking for the noise insert for the '16 compatible Akrapovic exhaust.  Purchased the bike used and it's just too loud for me.  If anyone has a takeoff, I would appreciate it.

    Part Number V-TUV161

    Im in the same predicament, the decibel killer is just a removable ring of steel that does nothing.
    It’s been mentioned elsewhere that you can have one made up that’s  longer and therefore quieter.
    If you get one sorted let me know and I’ll reciprocate 👍

    It doesn’t look like it could do much.  There are several options on eBay, I may try one of them.  Many are similar to something I used successfully on my track car.

    Yes much better than it was, going touring ground Spain hopefully next month.
    So didn’t want anything too raucous.
