Guess I'm going for a full exhaust
First let me say that I've had full exhausts on several bikes before with my latest being a full Brocks Ti system with PC5 on my ZX-14R. Never even considered a slip on. However with my 12 S1000RR I went ahead and just did the shorty Akra slip on. I'm pleased with it and contrary to popular belief, I believe it does have a richer sound at idle and through the gears. I also found it breathes a bit better from the stock can. However, I'm not one to leave things alone for long and now I'm itching for a full exhaust system and looking for feedback from those that have installed them as to:
-Brand/type (shorty can/long traditional
-Throttle response (crisper?)
-Bottom (lose any torque)
-Manners (overall fueling and torque curves)
-Sound (loud/moderate/quiet..I do NOT want excessively loud)
I know there are plenty of reviews out there but I'd like to kind of sum it up from various owners for this bike. The damn thing runs so smooth and precise with the stock headers and yes, that boat anchor called the catalytic converter, that I wouldn't change out to full unless there is appreciable difference in the last five items above, so any feedback is welcome!
