Akrapovic Titanium vs. Stock Exhaust Sound Comparison Video

Recommended Posts

Tyler Jane
Hi guys,
 
I watched a TON of exhaust videos before buying the Akrapovic, and I wanted add my own contribution to the mix. I tried to make the comparison as accurate as possible by using a dedicated digital recorder with no automatic normalization/compression. But I still had to bump up the levels on the stock video because it was just SO much quieter. Regardless, it should still be pretty accurate.
 
Many thanks to @tuninghq for the stage 1 kit. I'm still working on dialing in the right settings on the EJK, but it's all been great so far. I just can't get over how good it sounds!
 
Enjoy,

@tylerjanebr,
 
Glad to hear you are enjoying the Exhaust and EJK.
 
Let me know if I can help with those settings.

A video of an FZ-07 with the Ti Akrapovic (Baffle removed) was one of the main reasons why I choose the FZ-07 over other bikes. To me it sounds like a Ducati (Without all the extra desmo rattle). Most of that has to do with the 270 degree crank pin spacing but an aftermarket exhaust really helps the engine sing.

@tylerjanebr That's a great video!!! Sounds awesome!
 
Also, the guys with ejk are amazing. I didn't buy from them cause I got mine used, but they're so great I may end up getting the ejk anyway. @tuninghq
 
Do you recommend anywhere I can get the DNA air filter and intake? Yours sounds deeper than mine, but I don't have the DNA stuff, only removed the snorkel
 
Do you think it's possible to replace the air filter just by removing the front seat? I really want to avoid removing everything again lol

@roadrunner: I bought the DNA items straight from the manufacturer:
 
Cover: http://www.e-dnafilters.com/Product.asp?ID=2075
Filter: http://www.e-dnafilters.com/Product.asp?ID=2066
 
It was shipped from greece, but surprisingly I think it was delivered in less than a week.
 
I can't remember if you can install the cover with only the seat removed. I had my gas tank partially removed to install the EJK and I installed the filter and cover at the same time. There is one deep screw holding the filter in and I can't remember if the tank is directly over it or not.
 
Glad you enjoyed the video!

I have to say I do like your video and the sound comparison.
 
That said, videos in general do not do justice for this exhaust. I also have the titanium Akrapovic on mine and man does it sound amazing IRL!!!

Yeah..no..
the fuel tank needs to be removed/relocated before you can access 3 of the 5 screws holding in the air filter. that deep one is a complete pain in the ass. Ive since given up fitting mine until i get a 2wdw flash for it.

@tylerjanebr @sorkyah I think I'm gonna skip the DNA filter stuff. I read some where that you can get the same effect by just removing the snorkel. Supposedly DNA did their testing on mt-07s, which have a way more restrictive snorkel. But the US version isn't as restrictive, so removing the snorkel gives the same effect
 
At least that's what I read lol

The DNA filter has a larger opening than the stock filter. The lid itself has a much larger opening to fit the larger filter openin and has a velocity stack type fillet around the opening to increase airflow into the filter.
