Yes, it's not loud (I kept the cat for that) but much lighter than stock (3,5 kilos I believe) en has a nice deep sound.

Update: I just removed the ugly Akra sticker. Much better that way!

The Akra full system really improved the performance of the bike and the Boosterplug got rid of the lean spots, the HPN gave me twice the fuel range…. and looks cool as sh!t

Ohlins

Izzug-

How do you like that Ohlins shock compared to stock? Have you ridden it long and in the rough??

Would love a report!

While you are thinking about that, have you done anything with the front forks? How much off roading (and how agressive) do you do? I have been trying to find someone that can really dial in both front and rear but it doesnt seem like many people know much about this bike especially with the one fork being pretty a dummy. Anyone else have a comment on this?

Mythical things like resisting the flow of electricity.

(Its basically a resistor that tricks your EFI computer into thinking the mix is leaner than it is, causing it to enrich the flow. Debate rages whether this actually improves performance.)
