Akrapovic EC Dual Slip-ons Titanium

Hi. I'm considering buying Akrapovic EC Dual Slip-ons Titanium to my Hornet 900 These cost almost twice as much as other mufflers here in Norway and I'm wondering if anyone has tried these and if they are worth it? The biggest reason I want these is the exhaust cover in carbon fiber covering the pipe into the muffler and the slightly dark color of the steel.

Regards Rune
Norway

How loud are the Akros?
Are they street cans by design, or race cans?
Akros is top notch stuff, but I have the impression they tend to be on the loud side.
Is noise a big issue for riders in Norway ?
Sound levels for aftermarket cans vary greatly.
Some are quieter than others.

They are street legal. And they are provided with a db-eater. On their homepage there is two types of db-eaters available. Dont know wich one that comes with the mufflers. You can only use street legal mufflers in Norway, but it is only a problem if you get stopt by the police. There is no mandatory control/inspection of motorcycles here.....yet:0)

I have the Akrapovic, they are awesome pipes! Deep tone, good quality and look very good.
I run mine without the baffles.
I tried McRomo's bike which is equipped with Yoshis without baffles and would have to say the Akro are not any louder.

Hmmm, but heavily loaded by WOT in the upper gears and up on the tacho, you might find a difference.
OR, are you implying that you had mine on the boil time ??

By the way, mine are baffled.
TRS race cans.
They had TRS-Z at the time, 7 years ago that is. They were a quieter design, a smaller bore I think, not just an insert. I didn't want those.

Boiling point?
You will have to try my bike and tell me what you think.
They have a different tone but I think the Yoshis are louder.

LoL
I meant on the boil that time.
As in WOT, revved and in upper gears.
I'd love to try your bike.
And meet up for a track day at Stratotech.
Mine are surprisingly quiet when taking it easy.
But track days without earplugs is not a good idea.
