Loud growly pipes that give the bike sick lines...
May 10, 2010(Edmonton, AB)
I bought this exhaust for my 09 GSXR-1000 because I liked the GP look. It retains the stock catalytic converter so remapping issues aren't a huge problem. I do use a Power Commander with it, but they do not make a map for this exhaust. As for sound, for some people it might be a bit loud, I personally love it, there is a distinctive growl. I run it without the inserts, so I guess you could make it quieter. Overall the fitment and build quality is what you expect from Akrapovic, amazing. Looks are slick, weight savings are huge. But you definitely buy this exhaust for looks and sound as opposed to gains. Not saying there are no gains, but because most slip-ons you get on the market eliminate the cat, they would be more appropriate for hp gains. If you want a loud growly bike, with slick looks and good lines to clean up the back-end get these. I highly recommend them. Raw titanium looks swweeet too.
