Hard to go wrong with Akrapovic for a standard mount exhaust. Personally, I like a low mounted exhaust for a few different reasons so I'd lean toward the Graves system. The SC and Austin look like they would be very loud. I don't like loud exhaust systems, track or street.

Also, that's a great looking bike. I wish they would sell the winter test version in the US, I think its the best looking version of the Gen5.

Akra or Graves. I would personally go with the Akra if I had the cash$$ The Gen 5 is such a nice bike.

The only one visually appealing is the akra, short excessively loud beer cans belong in the recycle bin. The GMS is as fugly as fugly gets.

I actually talked to Brock a week or 2 ago. No ETA on the 16 pipes yet. They didn't even have their test bike yet when I talked to him.

Thanks guys for your input

Yeah i do a lot of drag racing but this will be also a track/street bike .... but i dont mind the noise , aldo the track doesnt have a db limit

I like the Akra but its very expensive 890 dollars for the slipon + 280 dollars for the link pipe

I like the weight of the SC project , only 1.2 kg/2.6 lbs .... shaves 11.7 lbs of the bike. Im not sure what the others weigh but probably light aswell
