Someday I will buy a new exhaust. It is hard to decide between the Akra, Graves and termignoni. Those are my top three.

Do you have a graph show stock vs. Akra only (no tune), then with tune?
I did at one point but that was before I had my own dyno and was renting a dyno and I no longer have access to the runs

the peak gains are never big from the flash on the fz09 anyone that shows more then a few hp is full of it and cheating, which is easy to do

the full throttle fueling on the fz09 is not that bad even with a pipe so not much to gain there

there are no throttle restrictions built into the throttle ( except b mode on the 14-16), so nothing to gain there

gains from ignition changes are small

the big reason to get the flash on the fz09 is not full throttle power, it is midrange and throttle response

Damn, that Graves curve is looking like butter. I'm impressed and I think I know who I'm going with this summer for my new system!

vcyclenut,
Any difference in performance and/or sound from the Graves Titanium canister and the carbon fiber canister? I was sold on the Akra full titanium, but after hearing the Graves I think it has a much deeper sound and that is what I am looking for. I will be hitting you up with a few questions when I am ready to pull the trigger on the exhaust/flash purchase. I just got my bike and I am trying to ride it as much as possible before winter actually settles in. Then it will be mod time!

A carbon canister is always going to have a deeper sound then any metal can, performance is identical, I have both in stock whenever your ready to pull the trigger. When you order ill ship the exhaust back with your ecu, helps keep costs down and therefore my price down if I can ship them together

Just a heads up the sound is only deep on the graves when the sound insert is out. With it in, it's a little high pitch ( and quiter of course).
