I had a 2014 S in white, sold it for a flat black Panigale. Then decided I still needed a monster and bought the 2016 black 1200R. I hate the factory exhaust on these things. Had an SC carbon fiber on the 2014. Really prefer Akra for everything, including my Z06/7.

Yes, the Monsters and the Panigales complement each other. What are your reasons for preferring the Akras?

Tone, mostly. Weight savings and construction as well.

That answer seems to be Akras vs stock. I should have been more specific as in: What's your views on Akras vs SC Project?

I cut the mount point off the peg bracket and TIG welded it on to fit the 1200R can's hanger bracket. Now thinking to get rid of the flapper valve and don't have time to cut it out with a mill and weld a slug into it.

This is quite interesting to know. I was led to believe the 1200R had a different diameter pipe than the <2016 1200/S, but it seems only the FULL Termi system has a larger diameter pipe. Now I'm curious, the reason I say that is because I have a 2017 1200S and wanted the Termi Slip-on without the cat. I was told I had to order the non-homologated 2016 1200R system because the 2017 1200S has the same exhaust as the 2016R, and again I was led to believe the 2017 had a larger diameter pipe than the 2016, otherwise the 2016 non-homologated would surely work, and therefore any other slip-on for the <2016 would fit the 2017, which I was told it would not...Guess I'm gonna head to the dealer with a set of vernier calipers and check.
Of course the other reason for a Termi is the warranty...

Same answer, although I never had an SC Project on the 1200R or an Akra on the 1200S.

If not, can you tell us how the bike runs with just the SC-Project CR-T slip on.
LOVE the look of this exhaust. really want to get it for my 1200r
Talked to MotovationUSA and SC- Project and they recommended some sort of fuel management for their exhaust.
But like most people, i was under the impression, no ECU needed for just a slip on.

any input greatly appreciated!!
thanks

It depends on the slip-on model.
Moreover, quality manufacturers will stipulate when a fuel controller is NOT required for a specific model.
SC Project has a few models which works without a fuel management unit. When non-stipulated, you should assume it requires one.
