I haven't heard the Akra, but my buddy has this bike with the stock exhaust and I think it sounds great. Not too loud, but loud enough.

I just put on a set of Anakee 3's myself. Use soapy water, and take out the valve stem so you can inflate the tire quickly with just a 'spray' air chuck (not a valve one).

Seems high to me. You know you can buy a powder coating kit to do it yourself for about half that. You just need an oven.
