    Anything slightly quieter than akra?

    Running race map on 17 with akra.
    stick cam is too quite and my neighbors donít like akra when I start in the morning on a Saturday
    Is there anything in between before I go back to stock with removed baffle?

    Use the dB insert in your Akra in the mornings?

    I like my neighbors. But not enough to care if their Saturday morning is a little inconvienced by my bike.

    Likewise, and frankly, the Akra at idle and gentle home departure revs just isn't especially loud.

    I used a V3 silencer for the Austin GP2R midlink.
    It was a really pleasant sound.

    no cat
    no baffle

    A friend got a new 2018 RSV4 RRand had the dealer install the Austin Racing and Race ECU - OMG it is loud. And many here have commented on the loud options and some tracks and even communities here have noise restrictions, So I found from a forum member - a proracing pipe with a surprisingly effective and easy to install DB killer. I am sure many pipes offer a DB killer as well. like the V3 silencer above.

    Push the bike away from the house and aim the exhaust in a favorable direction before starting. I assume you have the akra "baffle" installed?

    Had the Akra with baffle and it wasn't so loud in normal riding, but it was too loud at idle for me (and when you're stopped in front of a policeman the bike is normally idling).
    So I've replaced it with an Arrow Racetech with a modified baffle (40mm. instead of standard 34, which was way too small) and now it's a little bit quieter at idle compared to the Akra, probably because it's a 60mm. can instead of 65mm.
    The difference is not that much, I'd say a 10% quieter.

    my db killer seems - an insignificant pipe - but friends who I ride with and neighbors comment it is surprisingly quieter - I notice a little less engine ( mental ? ) response but with a 1100 and race ecu on the street who cares ...
