A&R Baffles VS Bolt-on Akrapovic...

Hey guys closer and closer I'm leaning towards Carbon Fiber Akros for my
'07 10R SE..Currently have A&R Racing Baffles on ...they sound good the only thing bugs me sometimes is the drone noise 3-4,000 rpm but above that and below they sound awesome...has anyone went to bolt-on Akros from A&R Race Baffles? which one does sound better? Thanks..

akros are kind of quiet if you ask me. A&Rs are loud and sound good.

A&R's are loud and sound cheap. They are and leak a lot.

Akro looks nice. Have you seen pics of others on here? Devil pics are around.
Some liked them some didn't. I'd like to see a KR Tuned on a Gen2.

A&R is a good value, but compared to a nice pipe there's no comparision. My Arata's have a smooth rumble about them.

I have been thinking about putting the A & R baffles on my SE. I really like the Akro's but I hate to pay that much for them. I think the best I could find on a pair of slip ons locally was for like $841.26. A $102.00 for the baffles is looking better all the time.

i have a full system on my street 06 zx10R, and a stock system with the Baffel kit on my race (06 ZX10RR) bike. Ive installed them on my ten twice and they always get lose inside the housing and rattle like hell.

Now the A&R are loud and on the track it gives me that scream I like and want.. The full Akra system is deep and throaty..

To me its like
Electric guitar = A&R
Rap Bass = Akra

They sound totaly different, but depends on what you like. I like deep bass and keeping quite on the streets. (its better when cars cant hear you).

On the track I want to hear my bike scream so i know when to shift.

ps: Id be interested in that knocked out cat...let me know how much...if you need 2 ill trade ya my stock cat...or what ever..
