There's a sticky for it. And I'm a fan of the shorter exhaust, as long as it's not obnoxiously loud.

I shortened my Akrapovic about 4". It looks a million times better, without sounding drastically different. I would do it again without a doubt

Go shorty, you'll never go back.

Looks great and sounds great (even though you aren't worrying about the sound).

Check the sticky. I did it and posted before and after pictures in the sticky thread.

I am worried about the sound, I love the look if that was the only deciding factor it would have already been done. My problem is my bike is loud as hell already, i go to work at 4:30 in the morning and its not uncommon to wake my neighbors.(they complain every time they see me)

Full open throttle will be louder, but idle sound will be just a tad bit louder, probably not much to even notice. At least that's how mine was.

I know when I shortened my Two-Bros; it didn't effect the dB's too much, if any. But I think it looks a whole lot better shortened.
