The mag was very positive about the Akrapovic, and from my experience on road race bikes, these do work well.

I just think it's a shame no more USA brands were in the test, that way I would know where our European brands are compared to what you guys are riding.

I think I might get myself a Akrapovic system, I'm just unsure how to adjust the jetting if needed. Any help is welcome
