Is there a sound difference between akra slip on and akra full exhaust system?

HI ALL!

this is my first post! I have an 05 zx636 and am looking to put an exhaust on it most likley akrapovic! Just woundering if there is much of a difference in SOUND between the slip on and the full exhaust system? Im not looking to increase horsepower by much as i am already very happy with the bikes performance just looking to get the bike sounding as nice quality loud as possible. Is there much of a difference in noise quality and volume between the full akra exhaust system and the slip on? If there is no difference i will go the slip on but if there is a big difference i will go the full exhaust system?

not in the mood for long paragraphs. Simply put full system is louder and makes 2x the power as a slip in most cases. if you want sound just buy a slip like jardine or 2 bros or really any slip for that matter. you would waste 1500 dollars on the akra

the two brothers slip on is only about 200 dollars less than the full akrapovic racing system. I heard the two brothers slip on is loud as tho?

i had a slip on and then went to the full on a two bros on my 250 ninja...the only really difference in sound was that is was a more deeper sound....alos it sounded slightly less crackly....it was on a 250 though my 08 zx6r is still stock exhaust....saving to get the full akro, air filter and pwer commander at the same time.

see them for about 400 on sale all the time and on ebay. akra system is 1300 on avg. Regardless I would just buy something used if the op is worried about sound and not performance. But hey to each their own

apples and oranges. your 250 is less than half the size of a 636. thats like comparing an exhaust of a v8 to a 3 cylinder geo metro

personally if your looking for volume get a slip on and just remove the baffle or look into a gp style slip on. i would not pay roughly 2,000 dollars for a full akra exhaust unless i was looking for more power, which it will give you. yoshimura makes some good exhaust and there is a full system on ebay for 685 dollars, check it out.

remember these are just my .02 cents, you just need to do whatever you want to to your bike. your paying for it so you do what you want to it. just whatever you do remember to post some pics so i can over it, thnx mate and good luck on your decision.

oh and go to youtube and look up exhaust videos, this will give you an idea on what the different slip-on's or full exhaust will sound like.

thanks for the response mate!

I dont mind the yoshis but will probably stick with the akra i think. Just looking around for a good fender eliminator to go with it! Tryin to find one which doesnt retain the stock signals

As an owner of a full Akra Evo system, I say go for broke. A slip on is like going to a strip club, a full system is like buying a high price call call girl. Why buy just the sound and not the performance?

Money is always the bottom line, but there's deals out there.

thats true mate a full system would be great but i dont see the point in chasing extra horsepower on the street. Im not trying to get the bike going as fast as possible just trying to give it a nice note! Whats the full yoshi system like coz ive noticed they are selling at a reasonable price on more power racing.com. would the akra slip on put out more power/sound better than that?

The full pipe (with headers) will be louder, and some would argue will sound better.

let me spoon feed this to you. In short most if not all slip ons or full systems will net the same hp plus a minus a couple of horses. The difference lies in where the hp and tq are delivered. if you look on charts a vs b brand wont produce more than a hand full of ponies to its competitor.

Your asking questions that dont make sense or arent thought out. You ask will yosh sound better than akra? Well depends on who the listener is. Some guys swear their moto gp style exhaust sounds beautiful and with a nice melody. To me they sound like shit and make no power under 10k. Your making this harder than it needs to be. Slip ons make noise, systems make power. with that said search the net and youtube for sound clips and try to find people with a similar bike to you.
If it matters to you I have a micron race header and midpipe w/ a yosh exhaust and I promise you its the best sounding exhaust ever conjured up. You see where im going with this?
