    I've had three systems on now, standard, GPR and Akra.
    Standard:

    Standard with carbon cover:

    (Can't find a pic with the GPR on)
    and now with a carbon Akra:


    I've gotta say, I love the carbon cover on the standard can, and would really like to empty the standard can out, but I ADORE the Akra.

    That would probably be the best upgrade tbh, as you would get the benefit of more power, the benefit of better looks (all in the eye of the beholder) and reduced weight from ridding your bike of a MASSIVE cat.

    To be fair to the standard unit its not bad looking by the standards of some of the fugly units that the Euro emissions require..... but i prefer my Ixil, its small which shows off the gorgeous back wheel, couple this with the removal of the rear pegs and the back of the bike looks like it always should of, the weight saving and the noise are simply a bonus as i commute in the summer on mine and need something louder for the deaf half wits in the cars. I am not against the standard but it is one big ' mother ' when compared to the ' supermodel' Ixil.

    in my case i love how it looks, but hate that its too close to the ground... at least where i live every time i go through a speed bump if I dont almost do a complete stop the exhaust hits the speedbump and scratches it.... I feel pain every time it happens lol

    That looks really good, the cat cover looks way better than the one IXIL provides.
