    Hi all, I’m purchasing an “in crate” 2017 CT and I’m kitting it out for a “Long Way South” trip to Tierra Del Fuego next year. Looking for recommendations for slip-on exhausts. I’m assuming Akrapovic is the gold standard so I’m looking for something more economical that will fit with the OEM panniers. TIA

    Currently considering the Delkevic Slip On 14" Stainless Steel Round Muffler Exhaust with removable baffles.

    I never took the silencer out but why should it be loud?
    Don't get me wrong, as a life long metal dude i do like loud but it's to crowded on our little planet to have loud pipes.
    Don't know how it is across the big pond but in Europe a lot of roads are closed for bikers because a small group thinks it's still OK to make a lot of noise and use the public roads as a racetrack.

    It has a nice deep sound and with the dB killer it is in dB's more silent than the OEM but for the ear it's a bit louder.
    Funny thing about dB's. low frequency's are officially more silent but sounds louder.

    Not looking for loud. That’s why I asked. I am moving to Latin America and have no desire to draw any more attention to this gringo than is necessary.

    In that case you'll be happy with the LeoVince.
    I live close to the German border en that region is popular by bikers and they are very strict there about noise.
    Most parts have to be approved and signed of on the registration but the LeoVince has an special approval which makes it OK to install it without an extra approval.
    I also like the looks.

    Is the catalytic converter in the stock muffler or before it?
