Congrats on the new ride! It's beautiful. Good choice going with the Akra too, it'll be looking like a world sbk. I have the Full evolution system on my 09. I forgot what it sounds like with the baffle in, but it sounds awesome with it removed! I get compliments all the time on the tone. It's not super loud and it sounds more like a 750 than a 600.

Thanks for the insight. I went with the full racing line, for the Akra. Really liking the carbon too. No burns on the legs nor any melted footwear. That was my deal maker right there. Plus, I liked the carbon vs. the titanium. Just my preference though. So you say it's not TOO loud? Because that is my only reservation with removing it. Also, is it a simple install if I don't like how it sounds afterwards? Like, literally just put it back in kinda deal? Thanks again.

It is a simple swap if you didn't like it. Just a screw holding the baffle to the can. You should see it on the lower left corner of baffle. I have never been hassled at the track about being too loud either. I keep the baffle in my tool box just in case though. I think you'll like the sound. The opening looks much better with it removed too Haha. I like the carbon version better as well!

Thanks man. I will give it a shot. Now I'm looking at LED lights. Had my first night ride the other night and damn... I may as well have closed my eyes. Ok, maybe a bit dramatic, but the stock lights are garbage. IMO. Found some options. Anyone have any preferences? Thanks again for all the info guys.

Here are the pics. I took the baffle out of the exhaust, but honestly, not noticing a huge difference.

Hey guys, trying to achieve a couple things here. 1, build my post count so I can post something in classifieds and 2, anyone have any feedback on the LED plug and play lights? $70 per bulb, but have to be better than stock, right? Stock bulbs are horrible imo.
