Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

deafening exhaust

Post by muttley1 on Tue 15 Mar 2016 - 16:52

Hi all,

a while back I fitted a stubby carbon fibre can and the link is here

http://www.cb500club.net/t3786-micron-off-carbon-fibre-on?highlight=micron

Initially I was very pleased: 62mpg, cars, cats and the like jumping neatly to one side so I sold the micron can and link pipe. However, I've to be out and about early this time of year. The can is just too loud, and is wearing on long trips too, having the baffle out or back in makes no difference.

So, anyone recommend a quieter can that sounds ok, is longer than a stubby can and fits aftermarket stainless downpipes.

I'd swap for mine, got to keep the neighbours happy y'see.

cheers

how about a takkoni? it fits motad downpipes. videos: video1, video2 (without dbk).
i'm going for the takkoni or the storm gp exhaust from mivv (video3) but i'm afraid the italian is louder.

Well, I'm quite happy with the standard fuel can (they call it 'midi' - 400mm)... it fits fine to my delkevik downpipes (installing them was another story!).

It doesn't seem too loud - it is lounder than the standard but it hasn't annoyed me yet - I mainly have the baffle in.

Luckily I mananged to get a pre-loved one from a member on here for a cheapo price; a new one will cost you 160-odd quid.

In the meantime earplugs will help stop it annoying you sadly it won't help your neighbours...

Cheers for replies. Ear plugs in, always, have taken to wheeling bike to road, away from flats and no twitcy curtains so far. Will look out for a better (quieter) can secondhand.

oh no, not the curtains! :)

I would like to be able to say 'fook 'em all, keep your loud exhaust' but I also know that it's best not to piss off the neighbours...
