I would say it's around 5db louder than whatever stock is.

sounds good, I hope it's under 95 dB. I don't want to deal with the popo and state laws. Thanks guys

i would say it is prob the one with the lowest db reading bc they orig started in MX mufflers and they needed to meet the strict db tests over in Europe for the FIM laws which is now a 94db limit and i believe here in the states is now 96db so they know how to make them quiet but powerful at the same time

i can't think of any other unit that would have a lower db reading. the Dinan rear section might be equal to it as for a db reading but if your worried then go with the Akra

when i had just my Dinan rear and wasn't romping on it i never had the cops bother me. now that i have the midpipe it sounds so good it is hard not to "drive" it so i get a neck break from them sometimes but never got pulled over for it. if i am cruising then it is no louder then bf.

there are a few guys on here that have the complete Akra system maybe they can chime in too

I have the full system and it is loud enough for DD. I had an AA system before, which sounded lovely - was just too loud at lower RPMS.

So I swapped over for full Akra and have never looked back. The sound is intoxicating and has no drone
