    Keep cat with akrapovic?

    Got my bike flashed with race ecu and Akra on it. I was a little disappointed with the level of sound with just that. But disconnected the flap and has been better, if I get a decat will it improve power and sound?

    Have you got the DB killer out I would hope yes if its flashed?

    I have the decat link pipe (2016) Aprilia race map and akra slip on sound great power where and when you want it

    If the link pipe is reasonable in price do it.

    No db insert. Just wondering if it's muting the sound and reducing hp? I know it's not great for the environment but I am always doing my best to help it out in other ways

    Yeah I don't clock up many km on it anyway. More about getting value out of my tune and pipe. Can anyone confirm if it's going to make a difference?

    unless this is a 2017 Tuono then you still have the flapper valve with the Akra, 2017 onwards gets rid of the flapper when the Akra is fitted. My 2017 with Akra and no DB killer sounds perfect!

    I don't know - I've never heard one with the cat in. I live in a 'who cares' state regarding emissions

    Where did you get the Akra from and how was the race map done? Sounds like, from what you said, that the dealer unlocked the ECU?

    If that’s the case then why haven’t you got 2 link pipes? One with cat, one without.

    Wouldnt be the first time some scumbag dealer has kept the link pipes to sell to the owner or someone else.

    Go at mine from eBay from a 2011 rsv4 I think and I had the ecu flashed from a guy who used to work for aprilia. So only got one pipe. Went away from the dealer as this cost me about$600
