I'm not sure that being overly loud is a good thing. Things like that tend to draw the attention of the LEOs, something I do not want while riding and otherwise minding my own business.

I just got the bike back. My mechanic claims the TaylorMade isn't the greatest design for performance. He prefers Akra. He did installed a Power commander V and did a dyno tune. Top HP wasn't what he had hoped. He blamed the pipe. I ride like a turtle. Well a little faster than a turtle but bike is plenty fast for me. Low end feels more responsive than my last 2013. ( It was stolen. Had a Ducati 959 in between and got rid of that POS)

Tough to beat the looks of this one though. Thanks for the recommendations. Oh yeah sounds good. NOt loud at all.

Akrapovič does kick ass, but it doesn't look at nice as the Taylormade

I live in Florida, the LEO's don't really care about how loud you are down here. I havent been pulled over for any sort of noise violation *knock on wood*

Yeah, they are pretty lenient around here. I want to be heard but not be obnoxious. Taylor Made definitely not too loud. Nice tone.
