My missus asked me to knock her up some weight watchers soup today, so being an obedient husband
I prepared some carrot and coriander, when I put it in the Bosch blender and turned it on the missus
Appeared at the kitchen door and said I thought that was your bike !!! I was straight on the phone to the shop to order my SC Project slip on can.

Best regards. Mick

I'm liking the sound from the de-baffled akro. The SC on my R is louder and a different note - i like that also (de-baffled)😎

Can's on, looks good and sounds good even with the DB killer in. I'll try it with the killer in for a bit then without to see what I like best

Well, the baffle is out and the sound is perfect. Done 100 MLS this morning and it sounds great on the red line in second.

Best regards.  Mick

Brian, it was one of your posts where you mentioned the "pop" on the change that made my mind up.
And you were right ! Not quite as loud as my last Blade but still turns heads. And sounds awesome when accelerating really hard.

Regards. Mick

But it pops just as wonderfully with the dB killer in Mick.

Perhaps not as loudly or agressively but it sure as hell scares the living bejeezus out of dawdling Herfordians when you snick it up right alongside their driver's door.

OK, I agree, I'm a hooligan! And I'm banned... 8)

On the US versions with the Akra the insert is removable. If yours has a spot weld on the nut I would use a dremel tool with a cutting wheel to carefully cut the weld. That way you don't take a chance on damaging the insert. No problem in removing it to see what it sounds like I did the same thing but put it back in because all it did was increase the noise level.
