    I have got Akrapovic on my RS.
    I really like it.
    It's so noisy as it was on my GS ADV when I was on freeway. I was going crazy...

    I have been Riding, my RS about 500 Kms per day several times, fullynlofasefully loaded, and its fantastic.
    It's quite expensive, but worthy.

    Had my first run today with baffle removed. Was wet! Not too loud, but then I do wear ear plugs :)

    Baffle was not easy to remove. The 8mm bolt was tricky to access with a deep socket and was actually spot welded in place. Sneaky. So needed a lot more force to break the weld and unscrew the bolt. And there was a risk that the socket and bolt would slip and disappear into the cavity between the carbon outer and Ti inner casing. And needed some brute force with mole grips, so now I have a flat spot on the baffle. Filed it for a much smoother fit next time it goes back in. And there's a risk of losing the rubber plug when you replace it. Design is very different from my old GS can.
    Has improved the Snap, Crackle, Pop that the quickshifter provides.

    The best way to remove tight baffles is to remove the end can off the bike , get a piece of say a broom handle cut flat and the tap the baffle out from the other end

    I've had good luck with Remus on my K1300S. A bit less expensive than the Akra. Also has a removable baffle but looks like a slightly different shape for the RS.

    Akro, with baffle is quite throaty, I'm glad I went with it. Have no intention of taking the baffle out as done that on other bikes and it makes travelling a distance a real drone.....

    yes I have the AKRAPOVIC slip on on my 2016 R1200RS as it is the better looking pipe in my
    opinion . plus it not only looks good it sounds good also . PLUS IT IS CALIFORNIA LEGAL

    Ok my custom tool design I had to do when I built a kit plane comes into play here. Go buy a decent pair of about 8" vice grips. Weld an 18" piece of 3/8" threaded rod on the side of but as close to centre of one jaw. Clamp the grips on the baffle then place a steel slide (with hole sized for rod clearance) that weighs about 1/2 - 1 lb on the threaded rod held captive but a nut and two big flat panel washers. Slide the weight back and forth and voila she will come out.

    Yes, but it's measured with a micrometer.
