    So I've removed my akrapovic as it's just too quiet (I'm 47 but still act about 7 years old) and put my Austin Racing gp1 on and it sounds mental!!! I know once next year comes and I get out for longer runs it'll be too loud for 6 hour runs etc. The akrapovic has a cat and exhaust flap so ideally I'd like to sell the link pipe and buy a decat one but can't find a supplier that sells just the pipe. Or swap it if anyone has one. Also what's you guys opinion on which looks best??

    Definitely the Austin for looks but noise would make me wish I had kept the Akra.

    AR looks better apart from the squiffy infill panel. Prefer the sound of the akra though.

    Would be the Akraprovic for me. The other looks a bit agricultural. Nice bike tho.

    And as said, it’s your bike so the important thing is what you like best

    The infill panel is not very well made and to be honest the Austin Racing exhaust isn't anywhere near as good quantity as the Akrapovic. I just wish it was a bit louder and racier sounding.
