Gen 3: Akrapovic slip on+link pipe install

About to finally order exhaust for my 2008, picked up a used link pipe and deciding on muffler now. Leaning towards Akra or Leo Vince. I also saw the great deal on the Yoshi clearance site...$500 full system but not carbon fiber.

Anything special needed for install? Looks pretty straight forward from my searches. Tuning required on a slip on? Or ECU re flash? Thanks all for your help.

I have a Slip-On Akrapovic on my bike. Sounds Amazing! Also have a PCIII on my bike, with a street tune. From what I hear you dont need a tune for most if not all Slip-Ons. When you get a Full System, its best to get a dyno tune to get the full performance out of your mods. Hope this info helps out.

I have the full yoshi in mine, very nice mellow tone and not too ear piercing.

Mine has the carbon tip. Want to get a pcv for it but so far it seems to do ok without but I haven't really gotten into it.
