    I have just fitted an Akrapovic exhaust and have been playing around with the baffles and different riding modes. I’ve decided to keep the baffles fitted as gives a nice deep sound without being a hooligan (that’s what my other 2 bikes are for). The interesting thing I have noticed is that in the dynamic engine mode, I’m getting a real nice popping sound when I shut the throttle, which I don’t get when in the road mode. My understanding is that the all the engine modes do is change the throttle response and not the fuel mapping, so I quite surprised it is having this impact. Consequently I’m leaving it in the dynamic mode.

    :)
    My wife did say when I got the Akra, that she thought this was meant to be my sensible bike. I obviously don’t do sensible very well:)

    My RS pops when the throttle is closed while in dynamic mode and mine has standard silencer on.

    Mine does as well. To be honest, I don't know what it does re popping in the other modes; I switched it to dynamic about 5 miles after leaving the dealer when I bought it a year ago and that's the only mode it has ever been in ever since. ;)

    I left mine in Road mode whilst running it in and have only properly tried the dynamic setting yesterday. But like you, I thinks that’s where it is going to stay:)

    Dymanic is good fun, I think I can notice a difference between that and Road in the harshness of the throttle response so I use Road a fair bit

    I tend to use road setting in town as it makes the bike less snatchy and smoother, dynamic doesn't feel as good in town so just use in the sticks.

    I switched to Dynamic engine mode & suspension after 1st service and that’s where it stays :)

    Apart from the "pops" (it pops much more in dynamic), I don't see that much difference between road and dynamic: it may be the main difference is in how the DTC is set? There's more difference between rain and road modes.
    I've configured user mode for dynamic with road DTC and I use this when not in road mode (just for the pops I like ;-)).
    When on twisty roads and want some sport, I switch to dynamic or user, with dynamic ESA conf.

    So does mine. I like the sound of the Akrapovic exhaust better than the standard, but I also have no issue with the standard exhaust, so I can't justify the change. Will just have to wait until it has to be changed.

    I’ve set my User Mode up exactly the same, which I will probably use most of the time.

    I’ve just taken my 1198 out this afternoon, which I’ve not riden since picking the RS up. I now realise how smooth the RS is in all modes and how easy it is to ride!
