Okay, I have got the same exhaust system and before buying it I was told that these new exhausts comply to a newer EU control and the DB killer is put in such a way that its not as easy to remove. However, there is a way around it, you will have a professional or a dealer to unweld the sides of the db killer basically chop the stuck metal between the killer and the exhaust pipe. Once removed, you will be left with small holes which you can use with some small nut and bolts to put the db killer back.

It sounds serious however its not that difficult. It took my dealer 5 minutes to perform the job.

Be careful removing the DB killers. I took mine to a garage to be done. One came out relatively easy. The other got stick and caused quite a bit of damage. Luckily the bloke in the garage is going to order the parts or replace the whole can for me. But either way it's not as easy as it seems.

Hi,
I have seen a video where someone with an XSR 700 has removed the dbkiller from a double pipe Akrapovic exhaust. See here: https://youtu.be/i9zD89SVjog

I think it could be helpful....

I do not know if all akrapovic dual exhausters are made the same, because the euro4 regulations.
The certificate that comes with exhausters it is dated April 2016.

Tools that you need:
1 ) A Set of drills for inox materials
2) A PVC Pipe diameter 40mm 1 meter
3) drilling machine
4) Support for the drilling machine so you can make the drill perfectly
5) hammer with rubber tip (do not worry it is not to bang in the exhausters)


Procedures
1) Carefully remove the exhausts from the bike
2) Remove the small round plastic cover from the end of the exhausts
3) If you see the picture there is a small recess on the material (in this point the de DB killers are weld to the exhausters pipes)
4) Drilling must cover all the recess in order to guarantee that the weld is removed
5) Put the PVC pipe on the back of the exhausts
6) Roll a towel on the exhauster
7) Put the exhauster between your legs with the tube facing forward
8) knock the pipe with the hammer .... the DB-Killer will come off behind you
