    Any other model slip ons for the GT? Not a ton to pick from. If I remember correctly, anything made for the 800r fits, true? Anything else?

    There is really a lot of choice:
    Akrapovic, Remus, Arrow, AC Schnitzer, Two Brothers, Delkevic, SC Project, GPR, Scorpion,....

    As far as I know the F800R slip-on exhaust also fit the GT (maybe only from a certain model year?)

    I've seen all the options for the GT, curious if there was more.

    "How is it too quiet" not sure how to answer that question without the obvious answer. I like a louder bike, not loud enough for me. So with your question I'd guess you think it's plenty loud enough...

    I've got a Leo Vince on my GT and it is loud as hell. Completely changed the character of the bike (and Korean taxis don't cut me off as frequently)

    I am running an Akrapovic on my ST and very happy with the sound using the dB killer insert. Without the insert, it is too loud for my comfort.

    Can you briefly explain how you removed the DB killer? I prefer the louder, beefier sound. Thanks.

    On my Akrapovic titanium slip-on there is a small screw that goes through a hole then into a welded-in nut in the DB killer.
    I removed mine yrs ago, had to use a slide hammer to *pull* the DB killer out, mine really fight tight, so tight I think it would stay put without the screw.
    This Akrapovic was an option on my '07 ST when new.
    And like Mark said, mine was too loud (for me) without it, so it stays in.

    I had something similar in the Staintune on my VFR, installed the system left it for months and months, went to take them out and they were sealed in there after so many heat cycles. So what I did was when I put it back in gave the contact surfaces a coating of anti-seize compound. A year or so later I was able to remove it again, no problem.

    Hi guys,
    Do you need to load a new ECU map (or use power commander) with an aftermarket slip-on? On my Street Triple I had to, or else the bike felt worse, not better.

    Did anyone test the fuel consumption before and after the exhaust swap?

    Yes, no difference (Akrapovic slip-on). New ECU mapping not necessary. No performance increase or decrease, just a bit more noise (without the dB killer a lot more....)

    Yes Steven, as Phil noted: there is a retaining screw on the bottom of the tail pipe at the very back. Remove the screw then, grab the end of the dB killer with a pair of pliers, twist and pull and it should slip out. If it is corroded in there, you might have to remove the can, then "drop" the pipe onto a piece of carpeting until it smacks out, or even use a broom handle to poke it out from the proximal end.

    As Frank noted, the real advantage of most of the aftermarket pipes, is the sound. The other advantage is the weight difference of ~4 lbs lighter for the Akra pipe.
