well this is a hard question because what might be just right for me might be too loud for you....the best advice i could give you is go to a local bike night and sit at the entrance and listen to all the pipes as they come in.


My buddy has the Leo Vince on his gixxer 600 and i think it sounds pretty good, but it is higher pitched and not as loud as my Akrapovich.

You have to decise the sound you want also....I like the really low bassy growl while others like the high screams.

Nobody can really tell you what exhaust you'll like ...I took the chance on the Akra based on the input I got from members on this site and I LOVE the sound on this pipe.

if you have some good computer speakers yuo can check out this video i made and see if you like this sound.....it might be what your looking for.





heres one of the bike at idle...

I think the "factory" can has a complete titanium exhaust (pipe/can) rather than just the can (SBK) being tit. I've the cheaper and I really like it. Much better quality than the Muzzy's I use to bolt on Kaws. Straight and well made with a deep idle although not as low as 2bros. I almost got the 2B but then my wife said it looked like a baboon rectum hanging on the back! It's not that loud until around 9K and then it shrieks like Hillary. What I'm trying to say is the Leo is a good compromise between not pissing off the neighbors and still getting the note. PC3 is my next purchase although it seems to run fine without, just to CS to risk not having it.

NO Leo Vince is not louder, it's more high pitched , imo the Akra is louder then the Leo Vince.... The clips of my bike are with my Akra.

Don't get me wrong...The Leo sounds great also, I just like the sound of the Akra better.

Both pipes (or any aftermarket pipe) will scream after 9,000rpm's anyway, so get the one that sounds the best to you.

I think the Factory is gonna be louder so if your not looking for something to loud you should save yourself a few dollars and just get the regular one.

If you want to know for sure just call them up tommorrow and ask.

The Jardine RT-1 street core is also not that loud. The race core is ridiculously loud though. Jardine recently discontinued the street core but you should still be able to get one from the existing stock that is out there. I have one and i like it alot.

Sleep, the can itself is titanium on the base model. The upgraded can is titanium as well as the exhaust tubing connecting to the header. I'm fairly sure that's the difference. Trust me Leo is the shite but 2 bros is also a really good can. I didn't like the carbon and the titanium looks rich.
