Old thread, but anyhow….
Brandon – did you remove the DB killer from the stock exhaust as well and compared with the Akrapovic without DB killer? I like the looks of the stock exhaust better and can’t really decide if I want to keep the stock and try to remove the DB killer or if I should get the Akra slip on. Seems easier to remove the DB killer from the Akra, but it is quite expensive and in my opinion not as good looking. I rode a Vitpilen 701 with the Akra fitted and couldn’t really notice any significant difference in sound compared with the stock exhaust, with DB killer still in on both.
