As you guys know I recently bought the Arrow decat and the bike runs very good and sounds amazing. However I decided to sell my Akra muffler and ordered the Arrow GP2. Not that the Akra didn't do the job but there are 3 reasons why I did what I did. 1) I don't like mixing brands (must be the neurotic in my) 2) This bike is so slim and "tiny" that the more I look at it, I have the feeling that the Akra is way to big for that bike and somehow ruins the rear end of it. 3) The black GP2 will blend in well with the colours of my bike.

Where do you guys stand on exhaust models for your Scalpels?

I can see how you’d say that about the Akra, but I still mounted it any way. The size of the one on Chris Filmore’s race bike is just about perfect IMO. Probably couldn’t pass EPA sound as that sized clip-on.

Are you concerned at all, that the DeCat coupled with that 'zorst will be too loud?

The Acra does look large on the 790, it may be the best pipe for performance, but it fails on the looks department. Ixil IXRACE pipe on mine, and its looks supper cool.

Well, it finally came through! Here it is. Not so shiney as the Akra but it makes babe look slim. And the sound, well the sound is out of this world let me tell you that.
Congrats! Looks great. The sound... Must be memorable,
My 2 daughters discribed it well. "It sounded like the world was ending" 😂😂😂
