    MIVV GP style CF silencer. Sounds good with the dB killer trimmed a little. Tried it with the baffle out with the QS at 10K it sounded like MotoGP had come to town, at least in my helmet!!!!

    Arrow GP? Graves? AF1 Racing? As I prefer these lower mount styles verses hangers, I think I'm going to settle on the Arrow GP can. I like the way it blends with the bike and rear hugger lines. Any video/audio of the Arrow GP? Got to be loud, but I'm liking it's estetics the best and yes......I'd like to see it in carbon also!

    AR GP2 all the way (what I replaced my Akra with). Same low-slung, no-hanger look, comes in carbon or Ti can, and with the inserts and/or db killer you can make it as loud or quiet as you like.

    I run the 35mm link pipe baffle in mine (also comes with a swappable 50mm) and it's not much louder than the Akra was. It's a little more raw, but not raspy. I'd be willing to bet it's quieter than the Graves or Arrow, since neither of those come with baffles or db killers. I don't like really loud pipes, and I run my GP2 without the db killer.

    The AR website advertises that the db killer comes standard now - I must have just missed the cutoff and ordered one, but I only ran it a day or two before taking it out. With it in, you shouldn't have any trouble passing.

    Well I had an Akra, loved the sound but not the look. Then I had a zard and loved the look but not the sound (well it was awesome but too loud for me). Swore I'd go stock but then got a deal on a Leo vince. Now I love the look AND the sound! :-)

    It is louder than the akra without the baffle, at full tilt it howls, but it runs great with the baffle in and now sounds like a slightly angrier stock pipe.

    Had the same feeling about the Akra and I feel about the AR GP2 the way you do about your Leo, falkdal.

    Stinky, I do like the way the AR looks. Do you have a side view similar to the Arrow can pic above? Is the logo removable?

    I don't have a side view pic handy, but I'll take one for you. The logo should peel off, it's a thick decal - you could probably order the pipe without it.
