I am going to cut my Akrapovic carbon can by 3" like the race team does. It looks and sounds better IMO. Anyone here already did this? did you have to make any major map changes?

It is easy to cut down a can, just itchy repacking the fibre packing. Patience and a little mechanical aptitude. I would not expact a remap to be in order.

The 7R in my signature is a 3" cutdown can.

Ok.... here it is. The entire process only took me about 45 minutes to do. I have done this before, but never on an Akrapovic, so a quick reference to the link above (thanks) and I knew exactly what to do. Some mufflers are put together differently.

It looks much better IMO, and it sounds perfect now... just a little louder, not too much. The pops and back fires sound better too ;)


Here is a before pic..


And now....

HOLY CRAP!!! I picked up some horses. Now today is definetly colder than yesterday, but I know for sure I picked up some horses instead of losing, BECAUSE I went riding with my Brother on his R1!! And I am pulling him so bad now that it IS funny (to me) :thumbsup:

So the Butt dyno told me I picked up horses...and using my brother's R1 as a guage confirmed it. If it was just the cold air then the R1 should have been faster too. Maybe my map was off and the change made it closer to what it should be.... cant say for sure....but the change made it faster AND sound AWESOME.
