Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

Who makes a reasonably quiet after market exhaust. I really don't want one that is obnoxious. I have seen that Hindle makes a Stealth and a Supersport, is there a big difference in db's? Any other suggestions?

The Devil system is pretty quiet, nearly stock-like under 2k so idling through a condo comples or something is not annoying.

I have a Hindle SuperSport can. It's loud over 7K rpm. It gets pretty raspy and definitely is not stealthy. Under 7K it's definitely louder than stock but not a real cop attracter.

I think I've read various places that the Remus is a throaty but not overly loud muffler. The Moriwaki half-system is said to be nice in that regard as well.

Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

Does this affect performance/reliability in any way? I figure Honda knows what they are doing in the engineering department, but I also figure they have stringent guidelines to follow.

I had a spare can that came with the bike, just tried it, made no power at all just noise only stayed on for a day.
My Devil 1/2 system made a noticeable performance increase. I'm sure its not as much as a hindle but I like it

Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

Akrapovic's bolt-on canister for the 954 might be just what you're looking for. It doesn't wail like some of the mufflers out there, but offers a nice deep snarl that never struck me as obnoxious.

Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

I think the Devil is a great pipe I have just never been a big fan of the high exit style. I really like the Moriwaki 1/2 system but just don't have the $$$ to shell out right now. I was thinking the Akrapovic would be one of the quieter ones since on alomst every bike I have heard with them was nice. I think for now I'll just go with a bolt-on and go for the 1/2 or full later. Thanks for the input guys.

Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

I have a TwoBros Slip on and I love it. Nice deep tone and not loud at all, even in the higher RPM's but people can still hear me. A little less expensive than the Akra, too.

Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

I upgraded from a Moriwaki half system, which had a good h.p. gain of 6 or so, and made good sound without being loud. It's a high quality piece.

If you remove the endcan and look into the end where it bolts up,you can see a large plate.Just get a looong drillbit and drill all around the perimeter,remove the big hunk of metal and presto,stock looking exhaust with better than stock sound.Nice mod in my opinion if you dont have $.If you have a CA bike there will be a cat convertor that will need to be removed 1st,of course the above mods are only legal for offroad......

Re: Somewhat quiet aftermarket...

I had an Erion Racing slip-on, mostly for looks. *The black looked so much better than the stock can with my r/b blade. *Both stock and Erion weighed exactly the same on the scales! *I could not feel any performance increase comparing the two, but was happy with the improved looks.

The Erion sounded great at idle and low rpm. *Get to 4000 or better and it was loud to me (with earplugs); over 7000 was like the screaming tornado sirens we have in the Midwest, so I finally bit the bullet and replaced it with the not so esthetic stock can again. *I am happy being stealthy and not attracting undue attention locally...I'll leave that to the Hardley crowd, but I also am interested in a quiet, nicer looking slip-on cannister.

Chain: *Didn't you have an Akropovic can and recently replaced your stocker? * Details, please. *
Aside: *I too hurt, and pray for you and your brother officer.

Alex: *I am probably wrong about this, but I cannot imagine much difference in sound between the 2Bros and the Erion. *I really don't know how to subjectively compare the two because I a) don't have a twobros *b) don't have a decibel meter. *

My Erion had less than 1000 miles on it when I took it off, so the packing wasn't blown. *My question to you is, other than sound quality, did you notice a difference between decibel loudness compared to stock with the 2bros?
Aside: *Thanks for the pics! *I think this is wonderful you are doing that for us! *Please don't stop.

Official Racer Dude Guy, according to a neighborhood 6 year old.
