Have you asked Akrpovic? Judging by the size of the can, that's a relatively quiet setup. Do you have the OEM pre chamber still?

Check the install manual that came with the can, or go to their website and download it.

Heres a link to a web page from sportbiketrackgear.com that has links to instruction documents, with photos.

Also, as others have said, you need to get a link pipe...

... to replace that big (quieting) resonance chamber sandwiched between the slip-on and the header pipes. I know, I know ...not mechanically minded, but youll learn.

Post a photo of the end of the exhaust canister, from directly behind the bike.

The exhaust system on your bike is made up of three segments. Header, mid section, and muffler.

Your dealer almost certainly only installed a replacement muffler at the end of the system. If you're in the U.K., odds are good that the can they installed still has a valve in line to further limit noise.

The mid section is hidden under the bike, between the back of the transmission, and the rear suspension. It's a rugged, heavy, muffler. You can unbolt that and replace that heavy box with a simple straight through pipe section that has the correct mating points to bolt in place of it. Makes the bike a few kilos lighter, a bit louder, and could be reversed in an hour with simple hand tools if necessary.

Well it's pretty obvious, from the picture you posted you can clearly see that the pre chamber is still there, and if my eyes are not playing tricks I can see there's a baffle too.

First thing, get a link pipe and second, pull the damn baffle out.

If you don't know how to do that just youtube 'akrapovic baffle removal' and do the same.

When I used to have a Yoshimura exhaust that looked similar to yours, there was a screw hidden under a little piece of rubber near the top that once you removed it, the baffle would come out.

There's either a bolt on the side towards the bike holding it in or you just pull it out. Otherwise it could be welded on depending on your local emissions requirements.

I really like that in the video above they state that there may be a spot weld that needs to be drilled out to be able to remove the db killer. I think this may be what the OPs problem/dilemma is.

It would be on the side of the exhaust next to the rear tire...not the side with the brand logo. All I see in your photo are the rivets that hold the stainless steel bands, which hold the carbon fiber canister together.

All you need is a hex key set, some pliers and a nice grip. The picture he is showing is the only thing you need to worry about. That one screw - take it out and grip the insert to pull the baffle out.
