The main reason on the motorway commute they might hear you beside them. Also I live on the Gold Coast and pedestrians just stroll across the road texting having no idea a bike is coming. I'm not talking HD straight pipe cowboy loud.Why would you want to do that?
Seriously, I've had stupid loud exhaust on previous bikes but now I'm conscious I may be spoiling someones Sunday coffee on King Street. Then I'm fast becoming an old fart I guess!
Not sure I really get the idea now a days of bikes being, at times offensively, loud.
I think I should probably get my coat!
I once read Statistically 80% of the dangers come from the front, and something like 7 from the rear So it is only helping you about 10%.Personally quiet exhaust for me is the way to go. If loud exhaust really helps save lives then why don't we see a huge number of GoldWing fatalities? You're better off driving like you're invisible and investing in a much louder horn.
Nothing as yes I getting good power and around 260+ klm a tank, I don't mind the popping on the back offLooks good. I saw it on another thread. What did you do about a remap as you the boosterplug didn't do the trick for you?
260? You ride like an old woman?Nothing as yes I getting good power and around 260+ klm a tank, I don't mind the popping on the back off
Thats not in line with what others get, am baffled..Tony 15,000 klm on back tire :3some:
That's over 9000 miles....? Did you ride it down to the belts?! Mixture of commuting and pleasure riding saw my rear totally dead at 5000 miles. Even riding like a nun, that's a long time!Tony 15,000 klm on back tire :3some:
Throttle must be faulty... clearly it won't go past 1/4!260 Km (163 mls) on a tank plus 15,000 km (9370 mls) out of the rear tyre on a scrambler... really?
Wear ear plugs or you will end up deaf as a post like me at age 70 --- or maybe you already are and thats why you think you aren't loud enough.anyone have ideas on how to make the stock exhaust louder??
