While Arkapovic does make a good system that performs well, don't always believe the hype that more expensive is better.

The dyno runs we did on the 636's included 2 with Akra evolution systems. One was Jeff Grant's with LSTD. M4 performed better than both.

Good to know. HP was mentioned briefly, but most of this thread seems to be about sound. HP and Decibels can be measured, but sound ....

houstons thick air?? who knows. I thought ak evolution systems only made peak power like really high in the rpms. I'm jsut asking even though i'm goign m4 for the 636s cause i can't afford ak. 1600 is a tad out of my range. :eh:

We've dynoed quite a few "home built" exhausts over the years.
Some work, others stay the same, some actually hurt performance.

sigh.........I looked back and waved you through the corner dude please don't take that as a "you're faster than me pass" much like your 2 minutes lap times at TWS (Texas World Speedway) it's all in your head. might be happy that i wasn't on it though cause i had one contact in my mouth during the last half of the session cause it came out and was on my face. LOL i need lasik cause my contacts get really dry while riding. meningitis.
