Hey Shadowburn, welcome to the forum! Your bike looks great, like the black colour scheme and the twin Akra exhaust compliments it!

Awesome, how are you liking the Akra system?
Still trying options at present I have no cat fitted at the moment, which sounds OK not too loud (but louder than the standard exhaust)
I saw a You Tube video regarding removing DB killer / Baffle and it seems to run a little lean when removed, and they recommended the best option was the set up I have now.
I drilled one of the welds out to remove the DB killer / Baffle, but could not get it to move, so gave up in case I damaged the can, but at some point I am going to have another go by heating the area where the weld was in the hope it will help to remove.
Also tried with the cat fitted but too quiet for my liking,

Hello, I have the same exhaust. It's fairly simple to take the baffles out but you have to use force. After you drilled, put a piece of wood or metal through the exhaust. Then, with a hammer, hit the piece to move the baffle out. It's really tight. It's worth it, you'll see (you'll ear) :)

I really wanna do it, but I'm too scared about the PoPo 0:) You guys just don't care or is it ok in your countries?

Hi Ben.
Tried with a length of steel pipe but it would not move, I was starting to deform the baffle so stopped.
Just confirm am going the right way, I am sliding the tube over the baffle from the inlet end of the end can, in the direction the exhaust gasses travel, is this correct?

Thanks Ben.
How do you find it with the baffles removed, have you noticed any problems with fueling, warning lights, etc.
One last question, have you got the cat fitted?

Didn't notice any problem. I got the cat on. The sound without the baffle is deeper and louder but not to much. It's perfect!
