The Cat and X plate(whatever it is) is in the stock slip on, Which you have already removed. As far as shortening the Akra you could do but I wouldn't personally. If you want loud get a Dumb and Dumber (D&D) slip on.A lot of people have shortened their can. Do a search and find some references to how they did it and any complications they may have come across.

Shortening the can will make it louder for sure.

I have an EVO 2 on my 10R, and my neighbours sure wouldn't say it's too quiet. LOL. Actually, it's not annoyingly loud (like the forementioned D&D) especially when tooling around town. Cops don't seem to even bat an eye. However, let her loose above 8000 rpm or so and it wails like a coyote with its nads caught in a leg trap.

Is it quite quiet of just a little too quiet?

BTW. our little group had an occasion to be parked on the side of a rural road a while back, waiting for a truck and trailer to pick up a couple of damaged bikes. I went to the next town which was about 9 miles down the road. When I returned, everyone commented that they could hear me coming for miles. And that was with the STOCK exhaust pointed away from them for the most part.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
