  • Noise reduction for exhaust question?

    I wanted to quite my exhaust down so I can hear the motor for noises. Does anybody have any tricks to make some slip on silencers for the pipes?

    I think I may hear a small clanking at the bottom end but, the mufflers are so loud I cant tell.

      It never ceases to amaze why people ask for advice then when I give it they either ignore it or argue against it.
      But then I don't know all that much about TL's

      wwjd.......what would jimmy do.

        You could also stuff the cans with steel wool. Though it might be a bitch getting it back out.

          Friend of mine made me these kind of noise killers for my Nikko slip-on's.
          This redused the sound level by 5 db's (from 98 to 93), so I can drive on the track again and also can hear the mechanical noises that the bike makes

            I have some slip-in "DB-killers" brand junk. I'm not impresed, and never used them.

            I always wanted old-fashioned snuff-outs. They are like the butterfly in yuor throttle bodies, but have a hole in the middle. A spring-loaded cam-nut slides on the square end of the shaft, and makes it 'click' against the round shape of a pipe to stay open or closed. Very very handy. But cops just loved to be big-shots and show off that they knew what they were nd write tickets for them. Personally, I thought they were very civic-minded, allowing you to quiet down at night in residential neighborhoods etc. The police don't see it that way.
            It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.
