    has anyone had any 2 of the 3 cans in the title who can hive me some sort of comparison please, I’ve had the normal akrapovic but found it pretty quiet so looking for something a little louder.
    I know these are loud but don’t mind having a baffle fitted if needed.
    Any help much appreciated

    Cheers

    I have a Repsol identical to yours mate. The closest I came to deciding was the Akra Megaphone. I wasn't at all convinced the infill panel would look right though. @Lozzy has 2 megaphones.

    Thanks Charlie,
    She did say she put the baffle back in as on longer journeys it got her nerves, I wear custom plugs so was thinking it might not be that bad for me? Do you find it abusively loud?

    Thanks for the reply mate, any pictures or a link to your can please? How does it run? Did you have to get it mapped?

    I went for a racefit for my 2011 Raph, haven’t fitted it yet but I’m hoping it’s abusively loud :D:D:cool:

    Here's the post I put up when I fitted my SC Project

    It replaced the Balck Edition from Racefit.

    TBH the sound is probably the same i.e. fekkin loud ...doesnt worry me since I always wear earplugs.
    I replaced the racefit 50% looks and 50% brand snobbery

    Sorry I've confused you. I didn't bite the bullet in the end because I was worried about it looking right with the infill. Interestingly I did put a PCV on in advance of even deciding on an exhaust. So I'm probably one of the few people running a stock system with PCV fitted and O2 sensor removed. I tried running it on a stock map but found it went too thirsty, so now run it on a zero map.

    Build quality is impeccable as you would expect from the HRC supplier.
    I was initially worries about the sticker but it's all good and stood up to my various cleaning products (Mr Sheen :oops: , WD40, GT80 and ACF50)

    Can only vouch for the SC Project. Beautifully made, great fit and weighs in around 1 kilo.
    I would imagine all three exhausts emit a similar noise level, as they are all straight through pipes of similar diameter with a small silencer.

    I think it’s self made, but don’t quote me in that! Looks great!

    My akra megaphones are same loudness to Di's racefit with baffle out. The sounds are a bit different...the racefit seems to be more of a bark and crisper.
    Baffle in they still sound sweet and loud enough to part traffic for filtering etc.
    Can't fault them....but.....if they hadn't already been on both bikes when bought, I would have had racefit on one and the SC project on the other. Still might go down that route when winter boredom really kicks in :rolleyes:
    Blade Runner 1's SC looks phenomenal....it flows with the lines of the bike...it's the perfect length and... looks wise.... it's total bike porn. I'd be banging that on Raph if it was me :)
    ( and then sell it me or swappie for black one lol ;))
