Get An Exhaust!! (Akrapovic Ti)

Recommended Posts

I have had my FZ-07 for a little over three years now. This is my first bike and I have loved it since the day I got it. I did the basic mods like blinkers, integrated back lights, tidy kit, and new mirrors right away. Since the day I got the bike I have contemplated getting an exhaust.

I have read review after review and listened to too many sound clips over these years. I kept putting it off. I just felt like I couldn't warrant spending the money on it, felt like it wasn't needed. This is mostly because I kept looking at the best exhausts (which were very expensive). As well as assuming it's going to be so hard to install a new one. 

Once I got my stimulus check I finally told myself it's time. Better now then never. So I finally decided on the Akra ti and getting a flash ecu tune kit. Definitely a pricey combo, but I figured I waited so long, I'm going to do it right.

The installation was no where as hard as I thought it would be. I am not very savvy with these sort of things, but you follow a youtube video or two and you're good to go. The only hard part was taking the baffle out, which was not a fun experience.

Akra Ti Thoughts:

Now I can't speak for the other exhausts, since I've only heard the Akra ti in person but this thing is amazing. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. This was like a brand new bike. The sound that comes out is so mean. I do have the baffle out, and didn't test it with it in so I cant speak for that. The videos really don't do it justice. This exhaust in addition with putting a new mapping through the ecu flash changed the bike. I really feel like I'm riding a different bike, and keep finding excuses to go out and ride it. It is loud, but I don't think I'll have any issues with people unless I'm really an asshole about it.

I'm writing this out because I'm sure people are like me and keep researching and contemplating if they should get one. I've seen people say that the exhaust is one of the first mods you should get. I now understand and wish I didn't wait 3 years to experience this. JUST DO IT!

I think it’s like going from a sewing machine sound to the incredible Hulk on steroids - screaming. Love it. I have the same one.

I have the Akra carbon fiber. People often roll their windows up as I'm coming up beside them so I know mine sounds bad-ass. 🙉

It was when I saw kids holding their ears as I went by that made me think it was a bit much. I want kids to be happy to see motorcycles like I was (and still am lol 😎.) I have the cut mt09 baffle in now. It’s not the same as no baffle but it’s better than stock.

I have thought about this. Does seem like the best of both using the 09 baffle. Maybe in the future but for now I'm rocking the mean sound.

I hear yah! It sounds sic. I’d recommend looking over this thread (below) for baffle options. There is also the RC8 baffle.

Although I went the Graves route - I had a similar experience. Owned the bike for 2 years before I put an exhaust on and I definitely wish I did it sooner. As soon as I started it up after the install, it put a smile on my face haha. I was stuck between the Akra and Graves, but 2WDW told me to run with the baffle out on both and from the videos I heard online, the Graves sounded a little quieter with the baffle out. Either way, these bikes sound incredible once you get rid of the stock exhaust.
