Had the 09 for a year now & ready to do exhaust. Need opinions on which one to go with.
I think the Akra is the way to go....the dyno results seem to put that one at the top.....but dont forget to get a tune also....
I have the graves full exhaust. I would buy it again. It is on the higher side of cost. I bought mine from Solomoto and it saved me over 100 dollars from listed price. Shipped free. I was torn between the Akrapovic and Graves. Go out on you tube and view and listen to them to see what one you like better. I think both would be a good exhaust. Performance gains you would be splitting hairs on comparison.
Yeah this if you go Akra Carbon. The thing is popping a lot of decel. I've had mine for 2+ weeks now and really need a tune. Sounds amazing though! Scares the hell out of me under bridges when it pops. I think I might remove the baffle today just to check it out if I can figure out how to.
I got in on the group buy when skooter did it way back when for the Arrow full exhaust system and I've been very happy with it. I've obviously not tried any other exhaust on my FZ. I do have the Stoltec flash with the exhaust mapping for the Arrow full system with the D.B. killer removed and the sound is amazing (loud when you really get on it), but very manageble when you need it to be, by keeping the RPMs down lower.....city riding, going past a hospital, etc.

I'm going Akra. It is very light, has great performance numbers, it is oddly the CHEAPEST full system I can find. Then, head over to vcyclenut, get his custom ECU flash WITH AKRA MAP, all for $80. You will have an exhaust, an ECU flash that corrects all of Yamahas sins, and gives you a great map for your exhaust, for $800!!!
This shows a comparison of sounds. Stock VS Carbon Akra... I have a video of it on the dyno... Not sure how to post it here though... Made 117RWHP without a tune, and sounds fxking amazing as well!

Thanks to everyone for the input. Looks like I'll roll with the Akra Carbon; most bang for the least bucks.
