Website seems broke at the moment, the SC1-R is quite similar to the Akra, although it looks to have a removable baffle (without having drill and piss about) which may be good for some. Pricing also seems quite competitive.

I also have the akra with baffle removed so won’t be changing anytime soon, but if they did the S1 or S1-GP in black I may consider it, I had the GP-M2 on my street triple r and it sounded bonkers.

The double underslung titanium pipes from AR are still probably my favourite at the moment, I may treat myself when spring rolls in next year.

Think I'll be going for an SC Project,probably the SC1-R,maybe the S1 if I can find out how loud it is. The other option is a Wings and add the Coober and decat pipe later. Funds are a bit tight as I have just bought my wife a new Duke 690.:wink:

Totally diff sounds for sure, though I don't know if that warrants extra price unless there is a corresponding HP increase. Austin has a growl that would probably make someone on the street jump without being too loud while the SC (from vids I've seen) is more like a deeper version of stock.

I´m not that convinced by that to be honest.
Its´s a slip-on, a short pipe after the cat and there´s only so many things you can do to change the sound from that where i think the biggest difference is simply how you record your video.

Definitely not the same, one is almost a straight pipe after cat, the other is a muffler. Just depends how much research was put into one for optimal HP/sound or whatever. But through all the recordings of both, definitely not the same sound. Again, can't say if one or the other is a bargain because I don't know.

Should have been more clear sorry. I´m comparing the GP-can of SC project to the Austin, neither of which is really a muffler.
They´re two pieces of titanium tube, one of which is twice the price and i just can´t see where twice the money is justified.
There´s gonna be zero difference in horsepower and sound as well with just a slip-on.

status-wise they´re also on the same level, producing exhausts for MotoGP.

Gotcha - I'm really waiting for a potential full muffler that isn't just a pipe.

the difference is power loos you have with each muffler. some titanium tubes lose more power then others.

Interesting. Wings claims with the Coober and their muffler a 9.1 hp gain. I was hoping this claim was real. Anybody running this system with an opinion?
