Installed the Akrapovic headers on my '14 N1K and put the stock mufflers back on after I had them powder-coated flat black. In my opinion they look much better than the brushed aluminum matching up with the frame and the black plastic parts. Should have come that way stock. Would post pics but don't know how yet.

Yes, the akrapovic headers work fine with with the stock mufflers. I had to cut about 3/4 in. of the muffler pipe off to get the muffler mounting holes to line up. As for the sound slightly louder with a deeper tone. Not that loud at all. Advantages are getting rid of that ugly muffler box, loss of 9.5 lbs, cooler running bike, and I feel it pulls harder especially at higher rpm's. Not that hard of an install either. Definitely recommend it.
