They are louder, they are about twice as loud (generally 3db louder), if not more than that (probably even 6db louder). Most of the aftermarket pipes though, because of the Honda engine, are relatively quieter than on a Harley at idle, but quickly gain the much needed volume from them when gearing up the speed and at traveling levels.so, the Cobra Pipes aren't any louder than the stock pipes?
I'd like to see what they look like too. Also, I forgot who it was, but someone on here took the baffles out and cut about half of them off and put them back in for an even different sound level.Does anybody have a picture of the baffels ? Just wondering if you could modify them to be a little louder without going to the extream ??
Right you are Steveo; If I remember they cut off 3 to 4 inches, got a little more low rumble.I'd like to see what they look like too. Also, I forgot who it was, but someone on here took the baffles out and cut about half of them off and put them back in for an even different sound level.
In fact, every time you pull the pipes you should use new gaskets. Don’t try to reuse them.while this topic is now re-visited lemme ask this. According the Furry Manual if you are replacing the exhaust, you need to replace the gaskets too? Can anyone conferm or deny?
..So maybe just cut in half and reinstall..?? I would like a little more db just don't want to kill my headset for music & communications....wait..it is my wife that will want to talk sooo maybe leave them out..??..
