Gp cans are loud to the point of being unearable.

Shouldn't even be a consideration unless you're just an inconsiderate person.

Full length cans will move the loudness further behind you. Between that and earplugs, I never get sound fatigue or ringing in my ears after a long ride.
But: im old school, and I've owned a lot of loud vehicles, I'm totally over it now.

Right...

I disagree....Motogp cans with Simons optional small baffles are tolerable and DON'T lose power as has been suggested by this author. What is inconsiderate is how you run around pissing on people endlessly when they don't agree with your point of view.

i owned a set and certainly put more miles on with them than you have with yours.

i installed the baffles in an attempt to calm the absurd volume, but found that the exhaust pressure forced the baffles out of the pipe and ended up with a broken end cap.

Quick story, related to baffles.
When I installed the baffles that came with my 60mm LPB gp cans, I didn't torque the bolt properly. I thought it was good enough, but about 10 miles down the road, the bolt vibrated loose and I blew the right baffle out when I was getting on the throttle. Turned around to look, never found it. Doh.....

mine was secured properly. the issue was that the titanium failed at the point where the baffle bolts in. they aren't snug fitting enough IMO. the akrapovic ones are very very tight fit so there's no chance of bending the end cap.

I was planning on the full size ladybirds but may do rcdevils Moriwaki’s. Got a $3k credit line on eBay to get ladybirds but would rather not go in that hole
